alteregoo (716) - POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Piana biała, postrzępiona, mydlana, początkowo spora po chwili opada do nierównych chmurek ładnie zdobiąc szkło. Barwa żółto złota, opalizująca, mętna na dnie butelki. Aromat lekko kwaskowy, lekko dziki, ziołowy, kwiatowy, przypomina nieco młode wino. W smaku wytrawne, ziołowe, goryczkowe, delikatnie kwaskowe w końcówce. Piwo jest lekkie, sesyjne, funky nuty starego siana obecne również w smaku. Goryczka średnia, niezbyt przyjemna, garbnikowa i długa. Skojarzenia z winem modrakowym w afterteasie. Wysycenie średnie, drobne.
Bitter to chyba adekwatnie określenie na to piwo - ogólnie fajne, sesyjne, lekko wild, jednak goryczka nie adekwatna do całości, za długa i zbyt agresywna, psuje ogólny odbiór.

Bierridder_S (599) - BELGIUM - APR 7, 2016
26/03/2016 @home - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte. Hazy light yellow with nice white sticky foam. Fruity hops (lemon, citrus, some melon), bitter. Dry bitter ending. Just a tad too bitter for me but nice beer after all.

Hazy orange color. Highly carbonated. Great aroma with a interesting interplay of malt, hops, and yeast. Citrus, orange peel, and some funkiness. Very bitter and dry with some toffee note, spicy hops, phenols, and fruitiness underneath. Very good, especially for a session strength.

Holmen1 (4519) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2016
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal 2.påskedag: lys gylden med højt skum. Intens aroma av krydder (i særdeleshet pepper), høy, stall, gjær og citrus. Bruser i munnen. Knusktørr med mye pepper i smaken og ettersmaken. Et hint av bitter grapefrukt i tillegg. Stor munnfylde for bare 4%.

cervmagpt (594) - PORTUGAL - FEB 3, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 25A, adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 823. AROMA: slight spicy aroma (clove) with citric notes (lemon). Some hop fresh aroma. slight sweet malty background. APPEARANCE: medium gold color and just slightly hazy. small moussy head with low retention. TASTE: light grainy-malty flavour, complemented with faint hop flavour (citric) and mild clove-like phenolic. high bitterness that lingers beyond a dry finish. PALATE: low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a belgian blond ale a bit on the "session" side.

heavy (2397) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2016
Apr. ’15. A 0.33 l bottle from Ivana Trgovina shop, Split. It poured hazy yellow body with a huge head, although not a gusher. Very aromatic nose, a lot of coriander, pine and that lightly milky bread, almost biscuit malt. Boldly bitter flavor, grapefruit, pine, plain herbal hops. Medium bodied, but really full for just 4%. Finished bitter, but also a bit acidic with biscuit malt showed up as well. A really bitter bitter, and a good one!

Cunningham (6565) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2016
Unclear yellow golden color with a big head that vanish quite fast. Quite rich Belgian yeast in the aroma. Medium body and a bit rich carbonation. Ok acidity and maybe a bit to much bitterness. Semi dry texture. Lots of yeast in this one. Also mild sour, funky, citric and fruity. Nice beer at only 4%.
[Bottle from Ølgaarden/Gulating in Fredrikstad, Norway]

rosenbergh (9813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2016
330 ml bottle. BBE Sep/2017. From my January Advent Calendar.
Hazy yellow golden color with a tiny white head. Some sweetness, toffee, mild yeast, mild floral hops and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is rather strong bitterness, floral hops, mild yeast and some maltiness. Surprisingly nice. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting but this is better than that...

sjogro (2138) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
At Maakun’s. Bottle. Pale golden with big bubbly foamy head. Hoppy, grassy, yeasty, flowery, flower petals, spices. Taste is over moderate bitter with sweet and sour and even salty notes on the side. Body is over medium, texture is medium thick. Carbo is average, smell is outrageous. Delicious fruity sweet/sour/bitter finish. Very nice!
