Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, - 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.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl cadeau de Nino du @SherwoodPub, couleur blonde grosse mousse, effervescence importante, bière assez rafraichissante avec une présence puissante du houblon aromatique, une attaque sur le fruit jaune, le pamplemousse et une longue fin de bouche sur le réglisse excellente !

Dit was niet echt mijn smaak. Dan was de hop harvest van 2011 een pak beter.

rosenbergh (6800) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. BBE 2017. William K, Helsinki, Finland. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweetness, mild yeast, some old hops and malt in the aroma. The flavour is super sweet malt, deep hops, mild bitterness and some mild sourness. This tastes unfresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo krzepkie tresciwe choc ma malo alkoholu doskonale syci. W sam raz do posilku. Niezapomniane w smaku chmiele belgijskie oczywiscie. Super smacznie bylo, polecam kazdemu

TET (1642) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
A hazy, orange beer with a big, cloudy and white head. The nose is fresh, fruits, oranges and spices. Nicely aromatic. Taste of fruits, some spicyness, oranges, the hops are aromatic as a citrusfruity and slightly herbal. The end is hoppy and dry. Medium bodied, high carbonation that is nicely balanced with fresh impression. Nicely aromatic and hoppy beer, what this beer would be if the botle would be more fresh, good beer.

lucanna77 (28) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2014
Assaggiata in bottiglia qualche giorno fà. Purtroppo ho trovato solo la 2012 e non la 2013. Bel colore giallo, bella schiuma bianca, un po’ grossolana. Naso scarso con lievissimi sentori erbacei. Al palato purtroppo è stata un po’ una delusione: corpo scarico, lievi sentori erbacei e leggero amaro. Alla prima occasione va assaggiata una versione imbottigliata di fresco, perdendo troppo col passare del tempo.

Bottle from Barleywine enjoyed at home
Golden clear, massive beige head. Smells of belgian yeast esters, malts, some grass and phenols. Light sweet, quite fruity, yeast esters, some meaty flavors, spicy. Medium bitter finish, quite intense hops. Overall not very exciting

Big bottle. Bought it with the XX Bitter at the same time... both turned out to be skunked, but this one much less, only a quarter of the way (?) so it wasn’t completely ruined. Shared with a friend who immediately mentioned the skunk without prodding so I know I’m not crazy. But anyhow pours light amber off-white head, grassy/floral hops, grass straw esters and pepper flavour... I think this is my kind of beer, sadly.
