jgb9348 (5683) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pure yeast with a lot of bread and unfinished sugars noticeable here along with some light hops and a bit of wort. Medium to Full-bodied; Sweet flavour up front with some caster sugar, light hops, earth and pungent grassy flavours showing some bitterness and herbal elements as well. Aftertaste shows some lighter grain elements, some floral notes and a lot of unfinished sugars that come through along with the bitterness from the alcohol and funk. Overall, a decent at best beer that shows a lot of pungency, some very strong flavours with some unfinished sugar notes, some herbs and funk and a lot of alcohol pungency as well. I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle puchased not in Belgium (luckily, I didn’t have to cart this tone back across the pond) but at New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-July-2016 for US$4,25 sampled at home in Washington on 24-September-2016.

hayduke (4928) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 11, 2016
The bottle was sent to me by Strykzone. Poured cloudy gold. White head. Nose of fruit and spice. Yeast too I think, Medium plus body and alcohol in the mouth feel. Flavor is rich and fruity, and the fruit carries over into the finish. Yeasty all the way to the last drop. Actually quite good and somehow different that a lot of Belgian Beers.

seynie (354) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2016
Despite the heavy carbonation, no head to speak of. Dark gold otherwise. Alcohol, watery peach, malt, some yeast. Quite sweet in the finish, but still watery. Not very impressive

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Slight gusher. Hazed golden liquid with a tall fizzy head that diminishes rather slowly, relatively speaking. A nice flow of tiny bubbles continues. A siren type brew, at least from the label image. Heavy sweet fruity aromas with fermented berries, grapes and other light fruit. Some vinegar and sourness is in the mix as well. Some heavy alcohol notes. 6/10

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pudgy little 12 ounce bottle. I rolled it and got some sediment loose but there was a lot more on the bottom of the bottle. Cloudy golden beer with active carbonation and chunks of that sediment. A noisy white head doesn’t last long. Lots of rich fruit in the aroma with some spice. That fruit is tasted. Peach and citrus with yeast. Alcohol is evident. The flavor is robust and it drinks like an alcoholic fruit drink.

mike_77 (5432) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Dark blond with thin head. Aroma is quite bready and also has sweet sugary fruits. Flavour is in general too sweet. Bready malts and a little yeast but lacks any real depth.

Bottle shared. Pours very hazy orange with brown sediment non-floaters. Aroma of yeast, caramel, soap, candy, light spice and toffee. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Icedwarf (1273) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, ietwat fruitig, abrikoos en kandij. Erg goed.
