Yves (2538) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2012
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 (5316) - 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 (1760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - 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 (7801) - 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.

tderoeck (6218) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2012
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 (10175) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (12665) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Saurer Geruch, erinnert etwas an eingelegte Gurken. Kräuterartiger und herber Antrunk fast ebenso merkwürdig wie das "Waase Wolf" der selben Brauerei. Saurer und trocken herber Mittelteil, der in einem hopfig-bitteren Finish endet. Ne!!! Test vom 17.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,5,5,5,9,5 - 5,50

Abio (1773) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 Slightly over dated bottle. Light orange beer with a big head that could hold a bit longer. Smell is hops, citrus, earthy, spiced. Something less pleasant inside. Probably the chicken soup others refer to. The taste is spices, earthy, citrus, hopped. Weird stuff gets trough like at the smell, and makes it a bit weird. Edit: This fresh bottle is some better, but still not something to buy again.

(33cl bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a tall gushing white head. Aroma of herbs, chicken broth, citrus, and earth. Flavor of grass, herbs, earth, coriander, vegetal, and more chicken broth.
