bierkoning (10032) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle. Golden color. Citrus in the perfumed, almost soapy aroma. Citric hopbitter, perfumed soapy flavor. Too much soap and perfume, too little tropical fruit. Nevertheless quite drinkable.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
In short: A grassy-herbal yeasty blond Belgian ale. Highly drinkable. Good beer.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed as fresh as I could get it in Quebec, which means 3 months after it was bottled.
The look: Bright golden-amber body topped by medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose evokes a countryside field, wild flowers, green herbs, vegetables, yeasty notes. Intriguing aroma. Taste is quite yeasty and quite hoppy, malts sit on the backseat, some coarse grainy malts, a strong yeast presence, low sweetness sensation, mild fruity notes (less fruity than most Belgian blond ales), dried wiled flowers, sun dried yellowed grass, a mild spiciness (herbals + white peppers). Bitterness level is medium and rather dry. Pleasant lively mouthfeel. Not exactly an exciting beer but drinking a 750ml was more than easy, drinkability factor is very high in this one. Harvest ales have become quite popular in North-America and I didn’t know Belgium breweries also made harvest ales, oh well, you learn something new every day, unless you had a brain injury, then it’s pretty much just coloring book and yelling at household objects.

laiti (5598) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2013
75 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04.11.2017
Aroma has soapy notes, apricot, some citrus and grassy notes. Foamy palate, slightly too high on CO2. Flavour has apricot, some spices, citrus and soapy notes. Finishes with grassy hops that linger for a long time. Also the spices keep up. Refreshing and nice, although a bit stuffy.

Flavor of citrus fruits, lemon, orange zest, herbal notes, yeast and some grassy hops. Some mild goose berries also. Very refreshing and has a high carbonation. Very nice.

Beersiveknown (2844) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 17, 2013
Clear amber with very dry herbal earthy nose with some dry apricot yeast esters. Medium carbonation, full bodied, banana esters, bitter finish but wheat body and yeast balances well.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle 75cl, a cloudy copper beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is on apricot, aroma is slightly on fruit but mainly bitter and astringent, lot of grass, pine and yeast. Not that exeptional.

humlelala (962) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
(on tap @ Fairbar) Pours a cloudy golden with dense, medium, white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is hoppy with herbal notes. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation with a bitter, lingering finish. Flavour is moderately bitter,with the malty backbone coming through ever so slightly in the middle. Okay.
