wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 From tap, 25 cl. Hazy yellow colour with a beautiful white lacing head. The smell is a bit weak, but is fine with some hop and citrus. The taste doesn’t offer you a wide range of pallet but a very nice and refreshing beer to drink with a strong hoppy taste and an even strong bitter afterstaste. Next ot that also some fruitness (citrus), yeasty and a bit grainy. Fantastically strong taste for an only 4,5° beer!

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2009
hazy light yellow, medium white head, lacy. aroma of yeast, bread, floral hops. flavor is florally hoppy with grassy notes and a bitter citric hit. medium bodied, kinda fizzy mouthfeel, mild bitter finish. the bitterness is this brew’s best trait, but i quickly tired of this one. single bottle from binny’s o.p.

Rune (10499) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2009
330ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Airy, loose white head. Pale yellow-golden body. Aroma of spiced hops. Sweet flavour of late fruits, grassy hops and wheat. Bitter yeasty ending. A bit bland and empty on the swallow. Last beer during six happy drinking days in Copenhagen (hotel room, 18.05.2009).

douglas88 (7954) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2009
12 oz bottle in the Bayou. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is very nice; loads of malts, and a distinct hop profile. The flavor was very nice with a bitter hop dominating, some fruity malts as well. Easygoing and quaffable. Enjoyable,

Eructoblaster (3601) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with average carbonation and a good white foamy head. Surprisingly strong malty/hoppy aroma with grassy and fruity hints. Its sharp hoppy taste leaves a long, bitter/sour finish. Very good, tasty Ale.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a pale, unclear beer with a white head. The aroma is fresh with acidity. Also hops and yeast in the aroma. The flavor also has hops (earth and citrus) and yeast. Palate has some bitterness, and overall a good and exciting beer.

BroSpud (2007) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2009
11.2oz bottle. Pours cloudy orange. Best deScription I can come up with is that it is like a thinner, weaker version of Orval. That is not necessarily a bad thing. It is actually more drinkable than many belgian ales because of it’s lower ABV yet it still retains many of the qualities of a good belgian ale. Plus the label is kinda cool.

JPDIPSO (5299) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Cloudy golden color with an off-white head that diminishes to a thin lid. Pale malt and light caramel mingle with a light herbal to fall dried weed field in the aromas. Hints of citrus and hopsack as well. Dry wheat and pale malt flavors in the front. LIghtly citric, with a bit of orange zest. Hints of almonds, and mild phenols. A banana peel "tartness". Finish has light pine and botanicals. Linger is rather dry with hints hints of wheat and again some rather sharp pine. Light and crisp palate.
