Yves (2094) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 @ ZBF 2012. Hazy goldblond coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Strong herby spiced aroma (coocked vegtables like). Full sparkling palate. Finish is rather spicy bitter ending rather dry with sweet hints.

Botella de 375ml. Copa Túlipa. Color oro palido. Nublada. Corona blanca con castante Buena retención. Copos de encaje. En nariz notas de pan y florales, matices de frambuesa. Entrada fresca y sabores de maltas dulces y especias. Bajo amargor. Sutil sensación oleosa en el intermedio. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Final de malteado seco y algo amargo. El ABV queda bien camuflado y la acritud no se percibe. La asimilación resulta algo pesada. Refrescante si se sirve a baja temperatura. 375ml Bottle. Tulip glass. Pale golden color. Cloudy. White crown with fairly well retention. Lacing spots. Bready, floral notes, strawberry hints to the nose. Crisp ufront then spicy sweet malt flavors. Low bitterness. Subtle buttery sensation in the middle. Medium body, medium carbonation. Dry malty ,quite bitter, finish. ABV is well hidden & sourness is not found. Drinkability is a little fat. Refreshing when served at a low temperature.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2012
375ml. Burnished with a huge, collapsing, speckling head. Beautiful soft, gelatinous aroma with peppered marmalade and orange wine gums, malted milk biscuit. Fresh and zesty with a souring edge of yeast; some rooty, white fleshed spiciness (horseradish), the burn and pepper of booze, rusk-like malt and marmalade hops right through it. Tasty, conditioned, typically enigmatic Belgian stuff. Reminds me of De Garre Tripel- some real power, orange liqueur heat and pepperiness on display here. Side order of heartburn. Great stuff. And judging by the distinctive, tanging, peppery flavour witloof is an ingredient in more Belgian beers than I realised.

MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2012
12.7 oz bottle. Floral and grapefruit on the nose. Flavor has a bit too much pepper in for me. Not over the top but a little much for me. Not a bad beer but not my thing.

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours golden amber with a nice foamy off-white head. Light white peppery nose, subtle tropical fruit, and some spicy yeast. A bit doughy. Kind of an odd rotting fruit note in the taste, as if a mango is really overripe. Pepper comes in real strong through the finish too, and the dough/yeast component is enhanced. It’s as if everything on the smell is just amplified in the taste. Bitter grassiness on the long finish. The taste was a little much for me, but overall unique enough to keep my interest.
