Dedollewaitor (13923) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 33cl bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen. BB 07. Pours cloudy to muddy orange with a creamy white head. Aroma & taste is full of hops, grass, fruits, citrus/grapes & yeast. The hops is visible all around. Fresh & nice hoppy Belgium! Re-Rate: Moeder Lambic 2014 Januar: Incredible fresh, smooth and dry. Hops and mild yeast. Really lovely beer. 3,8 - 4,1

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2006
Draught - Bruxellensis Festival. Hazy gold with thin off white head. Hoppy aroma. OK in mouth, some cream. Really hoppy, dry finish, bit like de Ranke XX bitter, but not as extreme

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2008
Draught at ZBF08. Refreshing and spicy aroma. The flavour is dominated by a nice refreshing bitterness. I cannot trace the spices in the flavour. Cloudy yellow colour. Stable creamy white head. Low but OK carbonation. Aroma and flavour do not match, but the beer is nice enough still.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 19, 2008
Bottle, 33cl, thx to JensenTaster. It pours a hazy, orange body with a creamy off-white head. Spiced, citrusy nose with pale malt. The flavor starts with pale malt, then a rather unusual (for a Belgian beer) hoppy bitterness enters and takes control of the tastebuds, all the way into the finish, and staying there for a good while. Medium fullness and quite dryish. As mentioned, it’s sort of unusual, but I also find it a strange one, and actually, too bitter. (080301)

Theis (13410) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle (33cl) at Plan B. Cloudy yellow - white head. Freshness, citrus, citrus zest, light light cardboard, nice hoppy, light yeasty, low malty. Bitter dry finish. (Smeirlap !)

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2007
Bottled (BB 12/2008)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Citrusy, yeasty and haysih hoppy aroma. Flowery, aromatic bitter - quite English-style, but is more yeasty than the most of UK ones. Nicely balanced.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 (750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, florals, and citrus. Flavor of malt, hops, and herbs with a dry finish.

Travlr (11905) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2008
The hoppiest beer of the night, smeirlap. Cloudy straw, aroma of bananas and smeirlap flowers, full bitter hoppy flavor smeirlap with a dry and bitter smeirlap finish. VERY drinakable.
