gEUS (1507) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2013
375 ml bottle. Pours clear medium yellow with white head. Green aromas, especially vegetal in nature, some spicy and citrus notes as well. As for the bitterness of the witloof/endives compared to hops, it is a bit more raw, earthy and adds a mold kind of odd aroma and flavour to it. Prefer hops in my beer, but a nice and bold try.

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2013
(bottle, 37.5cl) Almost cloudy, deep golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Yeasty, delicately bready malty and slightly wheaty aroma with vinous fruity notes, accompanied by hints of alcohol. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly bready cara-malty base with mildly fruity notes of peaches and pears, also an obvious presence of alcohol, lingering into the moderately sweet malty and slightly fruity finish. 04.IX.13

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Mile High Denver. Cork was starting to poke out of the lip of the bottle. It didn’t gush but it does have pretty heavy carbonation. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with huge, tan head. Spicy herbal hoppy, a bit chewy yeasty, lemon zesty, rustic aroma. Tangy, somewhat refreshing, chewy malty, lemon fruity, herbal, grassy, yeasty flavor that finishes somewhat yeasty and lightly bitter. Not too bad.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle conditioned 375ml. Hazy amber body with a patchy off-white head. Overripe citrus / orange / pineapple / gum with minimal gamey / farmhouse mustiness. Chewy, sharp both in texture and apparent alcohol, bitter and astringent. Just sloppy, I can tell on the first sip. Gassy, sweet, syrupy fruit cocktail honey malt with lightly burning alcohol and rotting fruit cocktail and wormwood-bitter hops, leaving the throat burning with acid reflux after a couple of drinks. All sorts out-of-balance.

Koelschtrinker (13119) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 2, 2013
Herber, süßlich alkoholischer Antrunk. Ansonsten mild, würzig malzig, getreidig. Die Würzigkeit nimmt noch zu, dennoch süffig, vollmundig. Nett. 11/11/10/11/8/11

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2013
375ml bottle at BXL East (labeled as White Gold). Pours a hazy dark orange wsith huge, billowing, soapy off-white head that clings desperately to the glass. Aromas of fruity yeast, citrus and a bit of spice. Taste is fairly spicy (chicory, clove and coriander) and peppery, slightly bitter with a bit of sweeter malts and earth. Taste is bright and prickly on the palate. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy, but there’s a nice balance of all the different elements. Good stuff.
