gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2013
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, April 2013. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of citrus, malt and some notes of cardboard. Also some yeast. Drinkable but not that exciting.

bartlebier (1645) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
33cl bottles - Smooth and slightly spicy, with typical but not all too heavy Belgian yeastiness and a relieving low ABV for a Belgian ale. Creamy, sweetish yet dry, well-balanced and very drinkable - and yet oddly, the least remarkable - most traditional in the impressive Valeir range (modern atkes on typical Belgian taste profiles) by Contreras so far.

rondphoto (1930) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Cloudy dirty blond with a smooth full head that has good retention, curtains of fine lace. Taste begins with a bracing caramel malt that has a nice carbonation edge; grows through the palate, warming and changing to a smooth, lingering butter rum finish. Complex, balanced, good-tasting Belgian Blond. High recommendation.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Draught @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Rated on 28.2.2013.
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of citrus, floral notes and some spices. Flavour of pale malts, spices, caramel and surprisingly bitter floral hops. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, slightly dry finish with some fruitiness. Good.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 33cl bottle at BXL East. Pours slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a small head. Lovely beer, aroma and taste of yeast and fruit and hops. Incredibly well balanced. Highly drinkable.
