Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of bierkoning. Appearance: It pours a murky copper beer with a small light beige head. Quite a lot of sediment. Not much lacework. Aroma: Very pleasant. Wonderful hop profile. Hints of pine needles, candy, quinces, elderberries, peaches, blue cheese and orange peel. Flavor and palate. Nicely balanced. Resiny and yeasty. Candy, pine needles, quinces, orange peel, vanilla, wild strawberries, pepper, peaches and elderflower showing up. Good bitterness. Medium bodied. Dry hoppy finish which is reminiscent of pine needles, sage and licorice. Overall impression: A great beer. Flawless. Marvellous hop profile. Extremely pleasant. Thanks bierkoning!

750ml bottle, with thanks to my new friend Molenbrouwer! Wow, this is my first Bitter rating too, very cool. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large foamy off-white head, great retention and lacing. Aroma is biscuit, light floral and pine, spice, and some grapefruit. Flavor is more bread, floral, pine and citrus, with a spicy finish and great balance of malts and hops. Highly sessionable and compellingly tasty. Nice stuff, thanks Menno, and thanks again for the excellent care package!

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
enjoyed on tap from the Pre-ZBF, pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Strong hoppy aroma. Flavors are sweet malt and a very bitter hop finish. Easy to drink and delicous.

Bontus (658) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2009
Draught Pre Zythos Alvinne. What a great tasting beer amongst these high ABV’s. Great citrus and grapefruit hoppiness. Perfumed to perfection, dry aftertaste.

thebeertourist (5009) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2009
On tap at In de Wildeman. Hazy amber with a creamy, lacing off-white head. Delicious citrus hop aroma. Beats your tongue with its uncompromising citrus hoppiness. Grapefruit dryness all over. One-sided, of course, but it does not pretend to be otherwise. It does that well and without excess alcohol.

decaturstevo (5340) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Straw yellow pour with slight off white head and lace. Aroma of pears and semi sweet malt. Medium malt flavor with a light bitter. A bit watery and thin.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Body-honey, medium ring of bubbles, thin film of bubbles. Nose-big hops, grapefruit, soapy, piney. Taste-medium bitter, thin, spiky, leafy, high CO2, weird earth aftertaste. Are you a Pale Lager or a weak IPA? Make up your damn mind. Overall not very enjoyable-they took a decent Pale Lager and dumped a lot of hops into it. Blah.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2009
An Amarillo clinic; incredibly fruity in the nose - like very ripe strawberries and peach, but especially honeydew melon. Taste is of citrus and grass in equal parts. Bitter. Slightly metallic. Very fresh. This beer had very heavy sediment; much remained in the bottle and much entered my glass! Nice and dark, appropriate for the style. Great lasting head. (Probably should have waited for settling but I COULD NOT). A little bready. Good. 12 oz. from bierkoning!

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
[33cl bottle] Cloudy, orange colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Aromatic hoppy, slightly citrus-fruity nose with spicy Belgian yeasts and a light sweet cara-malty blend. Bitter flavour with a balanced malty sweetness. Dry, cara-malty taste with notes of grape-fruits and a slightly piney hops-character. Dry and bitter, subtle fruity finish. Nice liaison of American hops and Belgian yeast [22.XII.08].
