PlutonowyMan (54) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Piana bia?a, drobno p?cherzykowa i trwa?a, sztywna, w szkle pozostaje do ko?ca degustacji. Aromat hm, wyra?na sucha trawa, chmiel i trzeba si? naprawd? nam?czy?, ?eby wyczu? niesamowicie delikatne nuty owocowe. Troch? to wkurzaj?ce. Smak, to dok?adnie to samo co zapach. Wszystko ukryte (mo?e specjalnie :D). Tylko goryczka, której nie trzeba szuka?, grejpfrutowa, minimalnie zalegaj?ca. Wysycenie niskie, alkoholu nie czu? wcale. Jestem zawiedziony, na etykiecie wysmarowane "extra hoppy ale", a ja si? pytam: gdzie ten extra chmiel? Wg. mnie jedyny jasny punkt Taras Boulba to piana. Tylko czy to wystarczy?. Jak kto? potrzebuje "odhaczy?" to piwo, to i tak spróbuje. Je?li masz wybór to kup co? innego.

Very refreshing, with notes of juniper juice, pine needles and a pleasant aftertaste of tangerine sorbet.

Low alcohol pleasant drinking beer. Nice bitter mouthfeel from the extra hop. Besides the bitterness the beer doesnt pleases me a lot. The beer would be excellent on a sunny day.

On tap. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Hoppy aroma, not very strong. Hoppy flavour, bitter finish. Good pale, but not really very Belgian.

Saeglopur (605) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 5, 2015
330 ml, bottled 30/4/14.
Pale yellow, moderate hazy body, with a big, stable, massively lacing, frothy, rocky, white head.
Aroma of grass, hay, citrus, spices, subtle sour fruits, like apples, slight candy.
Taste is a bit faded, most likely because of the old bottle, but still very nice, bitter, a bit dry, with about the same aromas as in the nose, but with the grass/hay notes not as dominant.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, grassy.

Very nice, but this clearly needs a rerate when I get a fresher bottle. Almost one year old, but still crisp, refreshing and with clean, bitter aromas. Feels like a Pilsener with a Belgian twist.

martin00sr (1128) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2015
Slightly hazy yellow, airy white head. Hoppy, malty, slightly grainy aroma. Hoppy flavour, spicy with citric dry bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, slightly watery.

birraiolo (232) - ITALY - FEB 27, 2015
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color oro un pó velato con schiuma bianca fine di buona tenuta. Al naso molto fresca, con ahrumato e erbaceo su tutto, leggere note citrichr. Al palato un inizio secco che lascia spazio all’agrumato per un finale amaro e lungo, un pó di astringente.

davidtjm (766) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Pour is murky gold with a frothy head, aroma is banana, spruce, clove, yeast. Taste is fruity, yeast, strong bitterness, well rounded. Very nice and drinkable, packs good flavour for the alcohol level

Gass bitterness (which is not bad), but almost nothing else (at least nothing I was able to feel). It would be good summer ale, but I expected more. Anyway it’s nice and hoppy and it’s ale.
