DuffMan (9201) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle. Hazy medium orange, off white head. Peachy and peppery, lightly sweet malts, nice. I think this bottle may have some age on it, but still a nice brew.

3fourths (9057) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2014
From bottle at Brasserie de la Senne, Brussels. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head.
Straight up American hops in the nose show a strong grapefruit and pine resin core with minor apricot and orange accents. Malt is pale and cara, lightly toasty, somewhat bready. Fine natural carbonation with soft malt, that’s the highlight. Medium body, semi-sweet, finish is appropriately bitter and a little resinous. It’s certainly well-made, but the ingredients limit the appeal. Yvan’s noble-hopped beers are some of the best in the world, he doesn’t need to be making the prototypical western resin/grapefruit IPA.

sebletitje (9032) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2012
33cl bottle. Dorée tirant un peu sur l’orangé et ayant une légère opacité, col blanc. Arôme laisse pas mal de place à des houblons nobles mettant à profit un bouquet d’agrumes fruitée et légèrement herbacé. Pointe de grains et de malt restant discret. Je note également la levure et ce profile typiquement DeLaSenne qui pour moi couvre un peu le houblon. En bouche, je retrouve cette signature de DeLaSenne avec cette levure qui en fait leur signature. J’imagine que br. Le Trou du Diable intervient dans l’ajout du houblon. On y retrouve un houblon amer et citronné laissant percé des notes d’agrumes qui sont en parfait mariage avec la levure, le tout laisse une pointe herbacée en bouche avec en retrait un malt de type pale/munich pour un style belge. Néanmoins, un houblon rappelant le Nelson Sauvin vient donner dans l’amertume une note fruitée qui passe pour un raisin blanc, très agréable. Carbonnation est modérée et donne sur la langue un profile épicé. Le tout n’étant pas agressif et bien digeste pour le volume de cette bière.

Ibrew2or3 (8024) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
33cl bottle courtesy of sebletitje, cool a Brussels brewed beer, pouring up slightly hazy deep gold with copper hues and tall near white head. The aroma is on the nose-prickly side with some yeast and some yeasty spice and then picking up tart citrus notes and pineapple. The taste has a fresh bright yeasty spiciness as well as lemon to lime and toward sort of a peach note or two. It has a little tartness as well and finishes crisp and refreshing but not light on flavor. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Peppery spicy yeast, light sweetness, some flowery hoppy nites, and mild bitterness. Pretty good.

Plovmand (7753) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 1, 2016
Bottle at Bierhuyske, Antwerp. It’s a hazy golden beer with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, brett, fruit and a pleasant tartness. The flavor is quite dry and fresh fruity. Like tart berries and orange.

Svesse (7724) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 14 Oct 2015) Pale amber colour, hazy, with frothy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of apricots, orange peel and spicy hints of yeast. Malty, hoppy taste with apricots, orange peel, a touch of resin, hints of yeast and a generous citric, resiny bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Really tasty, with a generous fresh hop character. Very nice.
