Pours a cloudy pale yellow with medium sized white head that leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is spicy Belgian yeast, grass, citrus, lemon, and faint fruit esters. Flavour is spicy yeast, peppery, moderate bitterness, citrus, zesty lemon, grassy, lightly fruity and a touch Funk on the finish.

Borresteijn (4791) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, labeled as Schieve Tabarnak #2, ABV 6.3%. Slightly hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, some alcohol, malts, light fruity, grassy hops, reminds me of a good tripel. Flavour is medium sweet, light floral, malty, yeasty, light fruity, some honey, firm grassy bitter finish with some alcohol bite. Medium-bodied. Good.

erickok (3700) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2014
Fruity aroma, pine apple, tropical, biscuit malts though and interesting yeast. Well developed, light sweet, full mouth feel. Not very bitter. Smooth and drinkable, not quite the freshness I wanted in the aroma. Another high quality brew from these guys! (Sample at Nüetnigenough)

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Belgian Beer Station.
Pours hazy yellow golden with a fine, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has grapefruit, esters, light crisp malts, peach, doughy. Citrus and a bit a sweet wheat. Medium carbonation, very dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good hoppy dryness on top of a mild sweet base. Not much residual sugar left. Grapefruit, peach and mango. Very dry and quite bitter finish.

EddyBeer1 (902) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Orange trouble, effervescence forte de visu, faible au palais, col blanc crémeux et nuageux, abondant mais pas trop. L’explosion de houblons donne une forte amertume de pelures d’agrumes (pamplemousse en majorité, un peu de citron) suivie d’un fruité tout aussi agrumes avec des notes d’orange, assez ronde. De la très bonne IPA!

ThirstyBird (1603) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a a hazy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. The smell is fruit, spice, yeast and grass. the taste is as it smells with a dry hoppy finish. The body is light+ with active yet fine carbonation. Nice brew.

bartlebier (1807) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
33cl bottles, Geers, bb? (brewed 05/2014). A crooked altar provides an oblique metaphor for what you would imagine a slanted transatlantic collaboration between two idiosyncratically Romance and cryptocatholic anarchist breweries would look like: the Devils’s Hole has done a great and fruity number on the stubborn series of Belgian ales De la Senne has been putting out lately: more fresh peach and some pink grapefruit in the nose, accompanying that house yeast strain’s earthy, aniseed-infused chalkiness. Pours rather cloudy, soft milkshake, with ample protein. Not getting much malt spice from the added rye, in fact the middle part is a bit thin, but pleasantly lush and soggy. Somehow a milk rice, transparent sake quality to the palate. Glad to have bought a few to revisit, as this beer’s unfocused subtlety kindles the imagination as much as its crooked metaphor.
