Lubiere (10636) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet perfumy fruity malt with light coriander and curacao, very fragrant. In mouth, a nice smooth fruity biscuit malt with grassy hops, lemon zest, alcohol warmth, very nice.

PriorL (2313) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2014
33cl bottle. Had this laying around for quite some time already, was cellared properly, but probably not the best beer for aging. Expiration date is nowhere to be found on the label though... APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, nice stable off white head. NOSE: fruity, hoppy, some mango, coriander, little peppery. TASTE: quite bitter and dry. Especially in the aftertaste which turns out completely dry. Taste is rather fruity and nice but aftertaste comes out a little too strong for me. Decent brew, especially for it’s ABV!

Thin muddy watery appa joose. Lightly sweet and generic fruity without much going on. Really this is not very special in any way. Generic belgian and kinda bad.

Christian (11391) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Odense drinking Belgian Beer in February. Golden with a lasting white head. Fruity and dusty aroma with some spicy, yeasty notes. Dryish fruity flavour with a pleasant bitter finish. A little dusty, perhaps to old, but no date visible
