EddyBeer1 (976) - 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 (1868) - 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.

Bottle @ Eetkaffee Multatuli, Ghent. Cloudy yellow colour, creamy white foam. Soft carbonation. Creamy mouth feel. Aroma of citrus, hops, some spices. Dry and bitter finish. Easy drinkable. Very good Belgian Ale.

bartlebier (2226) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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.

harrisoni (14345) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
#2. 6.3% cloudy dark amber lasting beige head. Yeast fresh aroma beer. Some spicy rye. But this is delicious. Good rye. Spicy. Oranges. Love the aroma. Just excellent beer. Surprise of the day.

bastarda (140) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2014
courtesy of bartlebier, thank you! fruity nose with hints of lemon zest, herbs and a bit of pepper, great mouthfeel, great drinkability, layered taste of more citrusy, peppery, herbal and yeast estery aromas. Interesting beer!

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, flakey, whitish pale golden with a nice white head. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, vanilla, tropical fruit. Flavor is lemon, mango, pepper, menthol. Finish is lemon, quite bitter. Some herbs and grapefruit. Lingering hops bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. One of the most purely refreshing belgian ales I’ve had.

czar (4927) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
(33cl from de la senne - labelled as #2) pour cloudy very pale golden with a tall off-white head showing good retention and lacing. healthy yeast, sulfur, very grassy and herbaceous, citrus, grapefruit, pine; pils and pale spicy and bready maltiness, plenty of other spices. average carbonation, light body - oily and creamy mouthfeel, assertive grassy-spicy-peppery finish. seems a lot more belgian than the version brewed at tdd - perhaps an authentic yeast combined to a more herbaceous hop varietal. nice offering!

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet. Hazy orange bold body with big head. Nose of citrus and oranges. Taste is hoppy with lots of fruit and citrus. A nice creamy and soft texture. Quite nice.

Bontus (654) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle, Geers. Pours hazy yellow / dark yellow. Big white head. Spicy nose, surely coriander. Also has this tangy bread aroma, thought it was wheat at first, but apparently rye. Good flavor balance, good palate.
