abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
33 cl bottle from the brewery outlet enjoyed at home. Pours a misty sparkling orange body with a huge beige head that lingers and leaves excellent lacing as it finally diminishes. Orange zest notes give way to more yeasty notes of a summer warm old wooden cupboard on the nose. Crisp and spicy, acidic even, followed by a heavy but refreshing bitterness. Full bodied. Heavy carbonation. The orange zest fumes from the fresh pours stand out as a dominant character in the aftertaste.

Lukaduke (2181) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Draft at Novare. Pours a light golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. The nose is grassy with touches of earthy yeast and spice. The palate is clean but overly bitter for a saison. Nice light body with good estery fruit and rustic yeast but and overly bitter almost astringent mid to late palate sucks all the softness out of the beer.

Bouteille 330ml au St-Bock à Montréal. De couleur ambrée foncée et voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux aux notes florales, de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes de mangues) aux notes épicées (poivre doux), moyen de malt sucré, léger de caramel doux avec des notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces d’abricots) et moyennement épicées (poivre doux) avec une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales sucrées avec un léger goût de caramel doux et de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon s’intensifie en affichant un caractère plus asséchant et plus herbeux. Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec un léger goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) et épicées. (10 avril 2013)

Osprey87 (1694) - WALES - MAR 14, 2013
Jan 2013 - slightly cold bottle. Not much head surprisingly. The typical rich pungent caramel flavour associated with De Molen beers. Tangerine as well. A bit sharp. Frothy in the mouth. Overall, this is not bad but the sharpness lets it down.

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2013
Bottled, 1 year after bottling. Clear golden to amber color, medium off-white head. Aroma has some caramel malt, bit fruitiness from the hop and lots of spicyness from the yeast. Slight hint of pineapple. Piney and fruity bitterness together with some maltiness in taste. Quite dry, but the fruity bitterness and some caramel still give a slight sweet sensation. Complex. Good stuff.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - FEB 22, 2013
Pours light orange, very hazy with a big white foam head. It is a wheat beer with huge amounts of hop. Hop flavours are melted with wheat aromas but reductive, rubber-like and phenolic off flavours are not very pleasant. The overall sensation is a "could be very nice" beer but "something wrong" brew finally.
