UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 750ml bottle (Alvinne webshop) (7:3:7:4:15=3.6)
Alas, this was a small gusher. I expected as much, so opened it in the bathroom. Please guys - get that under control, you’re not homebrewers, you’re supposed to be professionals. Head settles quickly, but residual carbonation keeps a tiny layer of bubbles on top at all times. Hazy to cloudy as poured, we left all the obvious yeast in the bottle (about a quarter of it). The aroma’s lush - on pouring it’s so fruity, it’s like one of our better sima’s - spicy and citrussy. In the glass there’s more hoppiness to it. Crisp palate, largely due to the quite aggressive carbonation. But the attenuation’s so good that this doesn’t become a foamy mouse in the mouth like some stickier sweeter over-carbonated brews. Taste is a very pleasant hoppy triple - quite bready grains, and lots of spicy zesty retronasals. Finish has grapefruity and almost hallertau-like biting bitterness. Numbs the tongue, it’s so bitter. Mellower, fruitier, a touch smoother in the palate, but dirtier with a small fraction of the yeastier remnants added to one of the glasses, and with less of a bitter bite. I prefer the really bitey one without the yeast. Yay, so we get about 500ml to drink from our 750ml bottle. Joy. It’s a bloody nice beer, very drinkable. Alcohol’s got no way of showing either its bitterness or its numbingness with all these hops taking charge. However, I have to punish it points-wise simply for not being able to drink it all as some went down the sink, and some was a wooshed up sludge of muddy yeast that I had to leave in the bottle. Docking 1 point from the look because of that gushing aspect. This new house yeast - are you sure it’s a good thing?
Rerate: 330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday) (6:4:6:3:13=3.2)
Lovely hoppy body, and that sour morpheus fingerprint. Not as good as before.

Swaroga (1341) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2012
33cl bottle. Darker orange and hazy liquid with small dirty white head. Nose : little tart, caramel, some hay aromas. Strong citrus , mango and pine. Sip : slick and oily, creamy body. Sweet start with tart flavors, developing a decent bitter citrus zest notes. It stays quite long. Overll it’s a really nice beer. Discovery.

JorgeLee (1191) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Bottle in Nuetnigenough. A golden yellow beer, this felt less spicy than a traditional Belgian ale, and the style of hoppy bitterness more Anglo-Saxon to me. Pleasant and drinkable, but somehow didn’t feel rounded enough to be great.

Idiosynkrasie (3811) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 15, 2012
750ml bottle. Cloudy orange with average frothy fading white head. Hoppy and yeasty aroma, citrus, bubblegum. Yeasty and hoppy taste, some citrus, a lasting dry note. Not overly complex, but solid and tasty Belgian Ale.

Kristall-König (2244) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 2, 2012
Hopfig-kräutriger Geruch, zitrusbehaftet. Süßlicher Start. Mitte kräuterig mit streng heftigen Noten, die unbalanciert wirken. Abgangs süßkräuterig und bitter trocken. Eigenes Bier mit Schwächen.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentine. Thanks beerandbeyond. Cloudy orange with a white head. Yeasty aroma of fruits, a bit of bubblegum, spicy notes and light hoppy notes. Sweetish mellow fruity flavor with a moderately bitter finish with some spicy hops and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. OK.

Hazy amber with white head. Hoppy, yeasty, fruity nose. Flavour is bitter and spicy. Not that special.

Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with a decent off-white foamy/creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and herbal hints. Its malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and coriander notes. Ends with a sharp sour finish.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
75cl bottle from the brewery, poured a hazy copper-gold with a fine and thin but lasting white head. Malt, spice and a little Seville orange on the nose, reminiscent of some of the Abbey tripels, say. Body is initially warm with sweetish malt, then quickly a dry peppery and lightly spicy takes over, before a dry and slightly quinine-bitter finish.
