JohnRMurdoch (3455) - Glasgow, - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Yeast bread & banana aroma. Hazy amber brown colour, reasonable head. Spicy bread, banana & clove flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This is more like a hefeweizen.

Douberd (2699) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2014
(Belgoo Magus) Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 6.5% Bright golden yellow colour on the body, tall and thick white head, with average retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aro ahas light apricot, peaches, some funky notes, yeast, brett, light cookie as it warms up. Taste is sweet, fruity, with peaches, apricot, some apple, light banana, sour touches but not as sour as I was afraid it would be, yeasty finish, light white wine. Very complex. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Very good, complex but balanced, with every sip making you want more.

superspak (2910) - Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/18/2010. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, honey, biscuit, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and pale malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, honey, biscuit, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy yeast spiciness/hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant Belgian pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. It’s not as bold on yeast flavors as other Belgian pale ales, but still a nicely enjoyable offering.

maledictum (659) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - OCT 27, 2014
Hazy golden with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has sweetness and notes of malt and honey. The flavour is sweet with notes of coriander, citrus, light malt, honey, light yeast and it’s uncomplicated and quite refreshing.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Belgian four-grain beer with barley, wheat, oats and spelt. Looks like dead, cheap wheat beer, regrettably weak aroma as well. The taste is, on the other hand, well composed and nice -- mostly wit sweetness, but also some fizzy sour tones later in the taste. Vague, unplacable fruitiness. Surprisingly fresh for a beer containing oats. Is this a "saison"? Good study in malty complexity.

Quack-Duck (8299) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
bottle. Hazy golden with a ahitw head. Grainy malty flavours with a nice fruity touch.

Icedwarf (459) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoetzuur en neigt naar Geuze en fruitige druiven. Etiket is inmidells gewijzigd. Niet echt bijzonder.
