dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, - JAN 16, 2005
This is a two year old bottle. This golden ale has a long lasting lacy belgian head (wish my wife did as well). There is quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The aroma reveals sweetness, malty, doughy and clean. It is very balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness. There is an overiding dry phenolic-almost solvent like finish. It is not a brewing so much as a yeast induced quality which might make this an isolated incident (this bottle). Overall it is a tasty brew but needs refinement.

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 The original Ellezelloise witch brew since 1993. A classic, with thick and rocky, dense, yellowish white head and warm peach blond colour, hazy with tiny yeast bits floating here and there. Lots of artisanal, Belgian, estery fruitiness in the nose: orange, melon, pineapple, gooseberry, coriander, aniseed, calvados, brown rhum, almond. Fresh fruity sweet onset with relatively sharp carbonation, much orange and orange peel, slick, yeasty, spicy notes and herbal hop bitterishness in the finish. Tasteful beer, it’s a good thing Géants saved this brewery from closure some years ago. Style-wise I’m inclined to situate this somewhere between a tripel and a (strong) saison.

freretoc (733) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de cl au Sherwood Pub (Nicorvo), couleur blonde, belle mousse et effervescence inexistante. Une bière avec une grosse attaque sur le fruit jaune, pêche et abricot. Le manque d’effervescence se laissait beaucoup ressentir.
