simont1 (530) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Hazy yellow, big head. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubblegum, fruit esters. Tastes quite bland, some grain, a bit off taste of cooked vegetables, and the only hop input is some sort of herbal lemon peel and offputting faint bitterness. Very dry and light body.

SamTheBarrel (745) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
750ml green bottle, poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy orange with a large beige head, that reduced slowly leaving lacing. Aroma of lemon peels, pears and a hint of banana. Flavours of lemon peels, herbs, pears, spices, a hint of caramel and banana. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a great beer with flavours you would expect from a Belgian Ale.

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
On tap at Tap East Stratford. Clear gold amber colour lasting white head. Certainly hoppy. I mean really hoppy. Pretty drinkable but a little bit of water in the mouth. Good

Tsestah (16) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
De Ranke font la XX Bitter, une bière avec une belle amertume et surtout faite à partir de fleurs de houblons séchées. Voici la soeurette faite à partir de houblon fraichement cueilli chez leur producteur local. Ceci dit, la robe est d’un doré clair, supportant un collet mince évanescent, donnant rien d’excitant. Au nez, il faut chercher; peut-être quelque chose du zest de pamplemousse, mais c’est loin. En bouche, rien d’extraordinaire, seulement une forte amertume peu équilibrée avec une potentielle saveur houblonnée. Une bière moyenne, mais d’un brasseur qu’on aime !

Buongiorgio00 (934) - - FEB 9, 2014
Ottimo esemplare di belgian ale generosamente luppolata. Il gusto è ben equilibrato tra le note floreali ed erbacee dei luppoli, note fruttate ben definite, malto, lieviti belgi e un discreto amaro che stuzzica il palato. Anche il 2013 è celebrato a dovere!
