mile (2738) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and mostly diminishing head. Malty and sweetish aroma, very fruity (pineapple, peaches), sweetish citrus hoppyness, light yeastiness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, fruity with light citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, fruity, light hoppyness and yest. Nice aroma, but flavor lacks the hoppyness – more sweet and fruity than hoppy.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2011
bottle from Bierkoning. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty base, a touch of alcohol that adds spice, resiny-grassy hop flavours in the finish.

dEnk (3482) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2010
Draft @ Emelisse Oktoberfest. Hazy amber, medium tanned head. Aroma is roasted malt, some spices but mostly malt. Flavour is medium hop bitterness, quite malty. Thin palate, but it does linger on for quite a bit. Nice bitter.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Jerre (2365) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2010
From bottle 33 cl. (Hopduvel) Taste 05.09.2010. Hazy darkgolden to copper color, with good darkwhite head. Aroma little spice, hops, malts. Medium body. Taste very little sweet, spices, nice hopsbitter, dry ending. GOOD.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle claims 6.8%, rather than 6.4% Very good yellowish head, fed by lively carbonated orange beer with a faint haze. Creamy nose, bit spicy, spicy malts, faintly toasted. Even more spicy taste, pepper and rootspices, bitterish, on dry wholemeal pasta background. Bitter honey. Bitter chocolate warming up, yeastesters more obvious. Yet later, the bitterness finally acquires a hoppy (EU) streak. Medium bodied, quite slick; balance achieved in the palate. Nice beer, spicebitter instead of hopbitter, despite no spices used, apparently.

FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2010
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
7 Let this sit in the glass for several minutes, and you’ll be rewarded with a glorious peppery ginger aroma. I had the cruddier glass, Anna’s clearer glass lacked it, so presumably the yeast brought it, or she didn’t leave her glass alone as long.
3 Browny orange, small tight head.
7 Slight sludgy taste at first, but then again, I had the sludgier glass. Apart from that this is a spicy and nutty bitter, with only a touch of the ginger it promised. Certainly quite full, and with plenty of details.
3 Crisp, almost biting, palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish is a little mily, and pretty bitter. Some nuttiness in the late long finish.
13 Full and bitter, but not in a UK bitter sense. More like a bitter nutty belgian ale by an less-traditional-more-experimental brewer. OK, let’s call it Dutch bitter.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2010
Hazy orange colored brew. Hoppy aroma. Flavor has floral hops, sweetness, grain. A bit creamy. Could use some more bitterness.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
On tap at Gollem, Amsterdam. Pale amber with white head. Quite a sweetish beer initially with a gentle herby note, it’s one that grows on you gently and eventually offers a decent malty hoppy flavour, reasonable.

Dean (29) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2010
33cl bottle. cloudy appearance. Nice and drinkable with a bitter aftertaste but not overpowering.

Vaiz (3146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thin off-white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of flowery hops, somewhat artificial and chemical, together with some spicy malts. Flavor is bitter floral hoppy with some grass and citrus. Slightly rough with some grainy malts coming through. Burnt and bitter in the finish. Creamy texture and average carbonation.
