oppear (79) - Tallinn, - DEC 1, 2013
Light yellow haze, similarities to triples in many way’s. First off smells watermelon, following sour. Multi-grain tastes sweet and pleasant, low levels of alcohol, light-mango-watermelon. Not bad.

Beese (1784) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from R.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a hazy, dark golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of dried fruit, yeast esters and black pepper. Chewy fruit flavours, with some grain, melon and honey. Finish was grass, dried fruit and cereal.

Houtmankutkop (17) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
Doe in Frankrijk als de Fransen. Koopt buitenlandsch speciaalbier. Want dit is knudde. Moet spicy zijn maar is me te zoetzuur. Nee niet vies maar ik ben er klaar mee. Muffig etiket en te slap en sloom bier... Adieu...

gegwilson (1178) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from a multipack from the brewer bought in a French Hyper-U. Very lively - necessitating a quick pour and some big suspended chunks of sediment as a result. Otherwise pours amber with a rocky cream head. There’s quite a bit of flavour to this - Fruity with spicy notes and an alcohol kick. Caramel too. Decent.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled 07/08/14. A blonde beer with a white head. Malty with plenty of cereal notes. Belgian and French style low hopping. Seems quite boozy. Decent enough.

VDuquerroux (276) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown orange opaque beer with a medium white head. Average retention. Aroma of spices, smoke, fruit, bread (light). Medium sugary sweet, dry medium refreshing bitter. Medium body and texture. Good carbonation, sweet finish with a bitter note. Overall, a good spicy "sweet>bitter" beer from Bretagne.

jmgreenuk (4361) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin whispy white head. The aroma is sweet malt. The flavour is medium sweet, light bitter with a zesty citrus fruit malt palate with a bubbly mouthfeel. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation.

Hugi (388) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Dark golden and clear, later hazy because of the yeast with a medium head. Smell is slightly sour with hints of fruits and grains and spices. Taste is grainy, a bit fruity, spicy, hints of lemons. Full body, long lasting, medium bitter, taste. Edit: Very long lasting spicy taste - cinnamon, a bit pepper.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, BB 11/03/2016 après 2 essais pas franchement géniaux, cette 3ième bière était assez agréable. Ambrée, col épais léger blanc-cassé. Arôme est malté fort appréciable aux notes de grains qui rajoute une certaine complexité, cela semble être ponctué par qcq notes d’épices. Le tout rappelle un peu ce léger côté brett, bouquet farineux presque de noisette. Palais est malté, épicé, caramel, léger biscuité. D’ailleurs ce côté épicé donne un aspect cannelle, girofle et presque anisé. Certaine sécheresse en bouche avec une petite rondeur venant de l’avoine? le seigle ajoutant une pointe d’épice. Amertume s’en retrouve un peu à la traîne mais suffisante que pour balancer le tout.

Medium white head, orange to chestnut brown colour, sweet apple yeast honey flowery smell nice and delicate, medium carbonarion and bitter creamy malty nice body and balanced
