5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle:   Pale golden, hazy, fine bits of sediment float about, moderate white head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright bready aroma, slight floral and alcohol notes.   Breadiness on the tongue isnt too mealy or heavy, thankfully.   A bit spritzy on the tongue.   Backside is a little rough.   Not too smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit spritzy.   Husky finish, a little cat urine (odd), and astringent floral and citrus peel.   Luckily its not too strong, but its there.   I am just happy its not mealy.

Parket (578) - Bruges, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2012
bottle, golden colour with foamy, stable and lacing white head. Smell: some fruity notes, yeasty. Taste: the alcohol is very well hidden (I expected some 6,5 abv, but 8,5, I couldn’t believe!), fruity notes, yeasty notes. Decent, but not that special. the Valeir Extra is more my style.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
On-tap between Christmas 2011 and New Year in the Delirium Bar (upstairs tap room), Brussels. Pours a murky golden yellow with a thin white head that isn’t worth talking about: it had gone by the time I’d walked back to my seat and picked up my pen to take notes. The nose was regular Belgian, in a good way: yeasty, malty and hoppy all in one smell, not easy but some Belgian beers just do it right. The taste was an amalgamation of loveliness in a glass: all the flavours a good beer should have were here in abundance, like the smell they were all bundled up into a single taste and just seemed right. What a pity about the head!

Great beer. Love there Belgian ipa. But this one was close to goodness. Had more of a malty taste. Good beer

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2012
draft @ Delirium. Dorée avec léger brume, col blanc crémeux. Arôme est assez faiblard pour une bière d’hiver. Note ce profile belge typique, houblon citronné, très peu d’épices avec un houblon allant plus vers un houblon allemand. En bouche, levure belge, houblonné citronné, le tout présente une douceur maltée sucrée voire caramel. Houblon contribue à un ajout minime d’un profile épicé et fleuri.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick yellow and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch . This beer smells to fruit.

Valeir Divers 33cl bottle from www.belgianbeerstation.com. I’m looking forward to this one. The appearance of the beer is wonderful: a beautiful cristal clear pale golden brew with lots of carbonation. A fizzy thick white head dissapears slowly and not completely, leaving a bit of lacing on the glass. This beer is very inviting in the glass. The smell is very malty and filled with yeast. There’s a little sour touch in the nose and also a clear alcohol presence. First sip is sweet with a bitter hop finish. The body is fairly light with little carbonation. Yeast is also a dominant part of the flavour, leaving a powdery feel in the aftertaste. Overall, this is a tasty strong blond beer that is well balanced. I’d drink this all night long.
