JorisPPattyn (9082) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2008
Fully hazy amber-orange beer with mossy shine; good, stable yellowish head. Lactic nose, grainy & wheat. Quite sharp-fiery taste with caramel, cookies (Petit Lu), and drying grass, even a slight oxydation. Slightly burning, very carbonated MF, medium bodied, and again - I seem to get wheat slickness, even when it is officialy not a witbier. Certainly not bad for a first brew of a beginning brewery. It shows character, and that is getting rare...

KyotoLefty (8746) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Lemony nose with grains, bread, some hay. Seems somewhat hoppy. Dark gold-orange, clear, lots of bubbles and a frothy head. Tangy orange and lemon flavor with honey and biscuits, slightly sweet but somewhat tangy and a rather bitter, peppery finish. Nice citrus hop flavor. Spices. Somewhat creamy. I wouldn’t call it a super hoppy beer a la XX Bitter, but it is going in that direction. A bit too fizzy. Good.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2012
330ml bottle. Veiled honey-gold with a fine, stable head leaving dabs of lace. Attractive, G+T-like aroma with a botanical freshness, pine resin and crystallised lemon notes. Bright, fresh beer biting crisply with herbal and lemon zest notes, spiky carbonation, a lasting pepperiness suggesting incense and spices; a jasmine-like aftertaste. Crisp, spicy hopping reminiscent of La Rulles. Didn’t touch the sides.

Cloudy orange beer, sediment, creamy off-white head, stable, adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, peaches, some citrus, spices. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity, bit sweet malty, metallic, green banana, bitter, citrus. Aftertaste: more citrus, metallic, bitte dry ending. Not the best beer they put out.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Draught at ZBF.
God this was dull. It’s a really run of the mill Belgian blonde ale. Spicy, yeasty, faint malty notes. My god, it’s another one of those.

77ships (6918) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2014
GUSHER. 330 ml. bottle. Purchased @ Bierhalle Deconinck. BBF 25/03/2015. Murky dark peach amber, solid smaller off-white head. Smell is oxidized stale, cereal, honey, hamburger bun, odd,… Taste is bitter, herbal, cereal, honey, oxidized, metallic, supermarket vegan meatballs, chestnut, more old crystallized honey,… Bitter herbal, Chinese spices finish. Thicker regular sweetish BE body. Odd but somewhat satisfactory brew that feels Belgian not necessary in the best of ways. I’m liking it, an interesting experience. The more I drink it, the more I like, very interesting. Great work really.
