ST247 (360) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle @home. Has some yeast stuck to the bottom. Pours golden/light amber with creamy head. Aroma is bitter, ripe fruit, exotic fruit, bit spicy. Taste sweet, ripe fruit, bit alcoholic. Dry finish. Not as bitter as expected. Must admit the bottle didn’t look that appealing just because of the way the label was put on the bottle. I don’t like glue coming out.

EddyBeer1 (840) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
Dorée opaque, pas mal de lie au fond, effervescence faible, col blanc moyen. Très maltée en entrée avec un léger fruité, l’amertume houblonnée-herbacée-épicée montrant progressivement le bout de son nez jusqu’à exploser dans le palais, ABV se fait sentir. Plutôt complexe!

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle @ Broken Benzai tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy yellow to slightly orange color, yeast residu floating around, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, faded and a bit old hops, moderately bitter, quite sticky and slightly resinous. Not bad at all, too bad I didn’t try this fresher. Quite nicely done.

MarcoDL (2039) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Quite nice Belgian IPA. Which means it’s hoppy and fruity, but also yeasty and herbal. Good.

Barrelbelly (622) - BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2014
Not quite sure why this is described as an IPA. A heavy triple for sure but more malty with a sweet and high alcohol finish. Not bitter at all.
