5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle:   Hazy straw, dirty dishwater white head, spotty lacing.   A little musty hoppiness, a bit of citrus peel and floral hoppiness.   Similar on the tongue.   Bitterness is minor, carbonation is lively.   Hides the 9+ ABV very well.   Comes across as a slightly hoppy musty IPA.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a hoppy bang, but not so much in bitterness.   Has that Belgian mustiness to it that you can’t get anywhere else.   A bit mixed as it has the flavor profile of an IPA but not so much on the hoppiness.   A bit more musty like, as to be expected.   However, it sure is clean.   Entertaining at least.   Two worlds that sometimes dont mix well, but this one was done fairly reasonably.

Kolor z?oty z delikatnymi pomaranczowymi przeblyskami, nieznacznie m?tny. Piana bia?a, wysoka, bardzo trwa?a, pozostawia mnóstwo w?sów. Aromat bardzo bogaty i intensywny, cytrusy, dalej troch? topików i borówka. Borówka to chyba najwi?ksze zaskoczenie, bardzo wyra?na. Smak: pieprz, lekka przyprawowo?? i sporo owoców. Ponownie sporo cytrusów, jest grapefruit cytryna, limonka, jest borówka i lekka nuta tropików. Jest s?odko z lekko kwaskow? kontr?. Grapefruitowa, sucha goryczka. Wysycenie wysokie, pasuje, alkohol idealnie schowany.

The_Osprey (6574) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
The 666th rating of this beer. Win. Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Duvel Tripel Hop #4: Mosaic’, 9.5%. Many thanks to Bryan. Clear yellow, sparkling, foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is rubbery, citrussy, melon, lemongrass, dried hop flowers. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is much smoother than the others in the series. Floral, citrus hops, biscuity malts, soft alcohol. The best in the series by quite a way for me – has the best balance at least. I would revisit this one, but not so the others.

Banzale (60) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2016
Coffret tasting box 2016. Acheté à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. #4 du coffret. Couleur clair ( un peu trouble ?) . Belle mousse qui tien bien. Au nez arôme de houblon plutôt présente et senteur d’alcool je trouve . En bouche goût fruité léger ! Plus on avance plus le goût ce révèle ! Fruité amer à point ! Pas trop mais pas trop peu. Rafraîchi très bien !

Täysin kirkas hailakankellertävä olut kohtalaisella valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu hieman tunkkainen, runsaan viinikumimainen, vaalean maltainen ja valkoviinimäinen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla. Hieman tunkkainen, sitrusmainen, kohtalaisesti hiilihappoja.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Islington - London. Many thanks to Bryan! Pours clear yellow with a foamy, white head. Lovely snout, light dank hops, some citrus, melon. Medium sweet flavour with more melon, grapefruit. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, with fresh and juicy hop character, juicy citrus, light pale bread. Good stuff.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle at Craft Islington, thanks to Bryan. It pours clear gold with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is fresh, juicy, orange, tangerine, light pine and white bread. The taste is crisp, dry, fresh tangerine, orange, bread, grass, alcohol heat and tropical fruit punch. Medium body and big, foamy carbonation. Fresh and juicy. Easily my favourite out the range I tried.
