Stine (1490) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottled 10/2012. Cloudy, grayed-out orange. There’s some lemon rind, honey and light acetic acid in the aroma, which has certainly been quieted by age. It is pleasant, not piquant.

The flavor is subtle; melon, rose, dust and earth. It was probably quite bright. Now, it’s got a certain grayness to it in its more yeast-forward state.

Given this, its phenomenal dryness makes for a fully appreciable sunshine quaffer.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle split at Scopey’s 5K Extravaganza of Oompah Band meets doorbell - thanks to Leighton, 15/02/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is tangy orange sherbet, straw, mandarin, light spice, lemon rind. Taste comprises tangy orange, lemon sherbet, straw. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff a touch better than #2 certainly in terms of drinkability.

maneliquor (3009) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. Cheers to Paul. A vast improvement from #2 here. Hazy golden with a big white head. Nose is lemon tang, sherbert, very citric and a touch sour. Taste is clean, citric juiciness, pear, zesty and spicy with a hint of dried apple. Quite spritzy, probably a little too much. Tangy on the end works well. Not bad at all

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle shared at the Scopey 5K tasting - I pulled this one from the depths of the LKS cellar. Pours lightly hazy gold with a creamy white head. The nose is all doughy wheat, yeast, citrus. Light-medium sweet with dried dough, more wheat, mellow grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately drying on the finish with faint grass, more dry wheat. Nice enough.

Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle at my 5K tasting. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is doughy, grain, pear drops, apple and icing sugar. The taste is crisp, hay, light pear drops, apple, dough, grain and white sugar with a dry, bitterish finish. Medium body and moderate+ carbonation. Ho hum Belgian ale.

Christian (11028) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Odense drinking Belgian Beer in February. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pinapple in particular, with some malt and leather. Dry, funky flavour with malt, fruit and a touch of yeast

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottled October 2012, 1 year old
Cloudy blond color with large head. The aroma has a rare pungency, some cellar and rubber character. The mouthfeel is dry, it’s highly carbonated; the flavor is spicy and bitter, bordering into some astringency in the ens and some chicory bitterness.
Too old?

Travlr (9997) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Murky golden brown color, thick creamy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of peppery and funky raw bread dough, light stone fruit. Taste is bitter and funky barnyard, dusty cobwebs, attic corners. Delicious.
