2012 Edition. Swietne chmielne i zywiczne w zapachu. Niesamowicie pacznace morela. W smaku wytrawne hwiaty bzu jakby. Kolor pomaranczowo jasny, silnie metny z kremowa i trwala nieustepujaca piana. 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

pedrodv89 (30) - wetteren, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2013
Zeer aromatisch van de 2 hopsoorten Brewers Gold 2012 en Hallertau 2012 (Belgische) in WET-hop. Een uitgesproken bittere maar aangename smaak en eveneens aparte nasmaak een bier dat zeker het proberen waard is.

3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2013
bottle-conditioned 750ml. careful pour is lightly hazed light amber with a large off-white lasting head. rich hop aromatics of flowers, citrus / pineapple / mango, dried grass) with seemingly endless depth to the yeast (basement must, spices, dried herbs, minerals). enjoyable but muted crackers and bread crust pale malt expression. medium-light body with high effervescence and soft malt texture; strongly spicy and bitter, pithy and somewhat astringent at times, but with the malt soft as it is the hop brashness can be taken. chewy sweet pale malt sugars across the front and middle with a lingering oiliness late in a vibrant, spicy, mineral-heavy finish. lovely stuff. I wish a local producer could put something out like this.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Dark golden with amber leanings. Elegant and plain beautiful white foam of exemplary consistency and lacing. Spicy, flowery, earthy nose is efficient yet probably not at its freshest. A complicated affair between yeast and intrusive hops. Pale malts merely watch from a distance, making for a very lean, yet fiercely carbonated body. Characterful yet noble hop bite, feeling rather green, herbal and lingering in the mouth nicely. Once you have a glass in your face, it is tough to imagine spending more than a minute without reaching for a sip, so that’s a good sign. Yeast is more on the spicy, peppery phenolic side than estery, minimal yellow fruits peaking here and there. Very dry palate with just a kiss of acidity, mostly from the bubbliness. Less citrus than I would have expected, really veering more toward white pepper and sage. Would be uplifting for many a meal.

ladnewton (1762) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
On tap at Nuetnigenough on 12th November 2012. Hazy gold with lasting off-white foam and scattered patches of lacing. Hoppy aroma with some malty sweetness. Hoppiness in-mouth is tempered by rich biscuit malt and nuttiness - hazelnut. Finish is citric with bitter orange and some nutty maltiness. Zingy mouthfeel; medium to light body - easier to drink than expected.
