DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottles from Craft and Blue Dog. Pours very turbid deep canary with 3-finger white head. Nose is hopcitrus, big banana, pineapple, pear. Tastes bready pale malty, with notes of funky yeast, multiple fruits including banana and gigantic Bartlett pear flavors, and a finishing funky floral flavor. This one is as fruity as it gets, and the pear/banana duality works very well.

750 ml bottle. BBE 2014.
Pours a pale hazy yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of strong citrus and not much else. Flavour of grainy malts, strong lemon, apricot, some hops and weak herbal notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a fruity, light bitter finish. A straight-forward Belgian Strong Ale with nice fruitiness.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
pours cloudy amber yellow, decent sized foamy head, layer of micro CO2 retention, sticky lacing all around, plentiful active CO2 streams. Sugared malts on the nose. Drinks with an extremely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, apricots, grapefruit tang/bitterness, malts, 6/10-sweetness level, finishes clean with a slight warmth. Minor alcohol detection throughout. Medium complexity, med-high depth, short-med length, good carry, good transitions, excellent drinkability. Superb quality beer.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle with Robin and Stefaan @ Avoriaz. Light hazy golden blond coloured beer with a medium white head and lots of carbonation. Rather hoppy and grassy hinted aroma with a sweet veggy touch. Medium to full palate. Finish is light sweet bitter hoppy with a short herby ending. Not really convincing actually. I prefer the original.
