77ships (8038) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Label looks like a kid’s drawing. Text on the back on the bottle seems to state that this is actually a witbeer. BBF 20/01/2014. Pours orange with a creamy white head. Nose is full citrus, touch dishwashing liquid like but not heavily, hoppy, some wheat, smells not badly, expected something terrible given the score on here. Taste is bitter floral, citrus, bitter hops, EU ones but agreeable, light medicinal / EU hops taste, bitter citrus peel, heavy esters, grass, quite bitter, herbal, touch booze. Something synthetic about it but not too heavy / quite weird but definitely not as bad as the score suggests here. Increases greatly once warmed up and you get quite used to it. It is quite nice actually. Maybe the recipe for this was recently improved or some issues fixed or something. Lots of carb, almost sparkling.

jgb9348 (5681) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Slightly hazy bronze coloured body with a bit of a copper glow and a fast-dying just off-white head. As soon as bottle was cracked, tons of carbonation came spilling out for 30 seconds. Aroma of funky malt, tons of yeast, bread, alcohol, metal and some light fruits. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Pungent malt and alcohol flavours with a very strong bite at the end and some light yeast coming through. Aftertaste shows even more alcohol warmth, some light spice notes and the smallest amount of sweetness. Overall, a rather strong and pungent beer with the malt, alcohol and metal coming through way too much and not enough focus or complexity. Decent to try, but wish I would have packed a different beer. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €1,75 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the pond on 27-June-2013.

Hazy goldblond colored beer with large rocky white head and lots of carbonation. Fruity hopped aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is rather hoppy bitter, strong bitter. A bit over the edge mayby, though not bad.

Countbeer (6185) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle: 5,5% alc. A head which is medium sized, creamy colored and pretty vast in texture, on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, pine, resin, some orange peel, grains, sweet grains, corn, malts, something light stingy and a good floral touch. Taste hops, fruit, citrus, mango and red oranges, a hint of normal oranges, earth, malts, floral, hop herbs, hint of yeast, bread ish, dusty, some bitterness and a light warmth towards the aftertaste. Pretty nice crispy with a good hop fruit and yeast fruit character and a fine bitterness. Aftertaste is hop fruits, earthy, bitter and some yeasty fruit notes. Medium carbo, soft spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Pretty nice and balanced brew!

Swaroga (2103) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 11, 2012
33cl bottle. Just a bit cloudy , yellow/golden liquid with medium snowy white head. Nose : soap, orange, straw, cream. Sip : low to medium density body with creamy texture. Decent carbonation. Sweet with esters, background alcohol is quite warming and even shocking taking the low alcohol content in this brew. Little tart and soap flavor. Some little bitterness on the end. Aftertaste is can develop sourness. Overall it’s quite narrow but still tasty and quite easy to drink. The esters are surprisingly strong. The bottle shows 5.5%. This isn’t the best beer around but it does merit better points.

sebletitje (9275) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2012
33cl from Dranken Geers. BB 01/2014. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme de levure, grains aspect légumes et fruité. En bouche, léger houblon, bien pétillante, épicée rappelant ce profile épeautre, le tout est sec et une levure donnant une légère note aigre allant vers abricot voire un léger houblon tropical / agrumes en fin de bouche. Le tout reste sec et poussiéreux.

10/IV/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: I/14 (2012-341)

Little cloudy dark blond beer, big creamy off-white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, sweet peaches, some citrus fruits, touch of exotic fruits (it’s no USA hops, but the yeast, similar as in the Heerenbeer I had at De Heeren recently). MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus fruits, bit of sweet malts, fruity, little sugary sweetness, grassy bitter hops. Aftertaste: bit sweet, bitter hops, citrus fruits, some alcohol noticeable. WTF is with the low ratings? Guess my bottle is from a newer batch, and it’s pretty decent now. No defects or weird smells.

Benzai (14078) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy muddy yellow color with yeast residu floating in it. Big fully lasting, vast foamy white head. Smell lightly malts, some fruityness. Tastes the same. Odd, expected something totally different. Low carbo, low to medium body.
