aleigator (181) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Pours golden yellow, with a froth white head. Very grassy. floral aromas, along with yeast. Taste is defined by a juicy, grassy hop freshness, washing over pleasant, dough yeast. Among a coppery carbonation, peppery hints shine out, adding a gentle complexity to the beer. Hops hit the palate in a straight forward, bitter way, from the very beginning. Bitterness gets a subtle dryness as it comes to the finish, still refreshing during the aftertaste. It is throughout gentle on the palate, hops don’t interfere with the overall balance of the beer, enabled by yeast, straw and toasty, soft malts.

33cl bottle. Pale cloudy yellow, foamy white head. Some yeast floating. Nice sweet fruity aromas with some citrus. Taste is malts, yeast, citrus, hops. Very good, dry bitter finish with vegetal hoppy notes and citrus again.

Stine (1488) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Beautiful, opaque dandelion pour. Misty aroma of flowers, minerals, grasses and apricot.

Delicate, perfectly refreshing flavor of stone fruit and earthy yeast notes paired with feathery hop notes.

A passing creaminess mid palate leads to the stunningly dry, bright finish.

A nice, well balanced belgian. Sugary sweetness is tempered by some light hopping and a bready base. Wonderful spicy nose.

Jarastlad (16) - Arlon, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
Mousse imposante à bulles moyennes, bonne tenue. Bullage important. Belle couleur jaune orangée. Trouble. Au nez c’est le houblon qui domine avec des notes citronnées et de levures. Au goût, c’est également le houblon et son caractère amère qui frappe sans pour autant camoufler de belles subtilités. On dénote notamment des citrons assez sirupeux ainsi que des fruits de manière générale. Assez longue en bouche, on dénote des grains/malts. Très bonne bière à mon sens !

Tmoney99 (10459) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy sweet citrus, yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Dark golden with a sweetness on the tongue, mellow bitterness and a good belgian all-round yeast and malt flavour. More of this please.

bartlebier (1540) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2014
33cl bottle bottled01/2014, bedankt tderoeck. Very much the Poperinge grasses-forward version of yeastier Zinnebir, boasting a plethora of strong bitter EU hop flavours ranging from unripe citrus to white pepper, dandelion and straw. Yeast profile is decidedly de la Senne dry and clovey, yet has phantom limb pains of a tripel: some fruitiness there, working well with almond malts. Yeast-astringent dry finish. The missing incremental link between more sessionable Taras Boulba and yeast-luxurious Zinnebir.

DrSilverworm (6020) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2014
11.2oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Hazy darker golden color. Pours with a big fluffly mostly white head that reatins. Very nice citrusy, light grapefruity hop aroma. Some definite belgian yeast aroma. Toffee, toasted malt, some caramel sugary belgian-type sweetness in the finish. Lightly spicy. Some cool grapefruit hop. Light bitter, moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft light to moderate carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Solid, interesting belgian ale. Very satisfying, interesting, more aggressive modern hop profile.
