Benzai (7340) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle shared by dEnk @ The Hague Tasting. Opaque pale yellow color, huge white head. Smell slightly malts and a citrussy hint. Taste slightly malts, citrus, softly bitter. Well I’d say it might be simple but it’s quite decent. Average to medium body amd carbonation.

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
33cl bottle split with 77ships. BB 03/2016. Dorée trouble, col épais blanc. Arôme rappelle les épinards avec un ’mash’ du houblon ainsi que qcq notes d’agrumes. Garde un bouquet grains/froment. Palais est ici fourni en levure, avec une longueur de bouche gardant bien l’amertume des houblons, malt carapils gardant ce côté très belge. Le tout garde un sucré modéré. Profil général reste belge. Pas mauvaise, mais semblable à bcp d’autres.

Countbeer (4325) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Very loud plop and siz and a very big vast thick white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of rice, malts, rice pie, card board, cream, wheat and hints of vanilla and grains. Flavours of wheat, bitters, cream yet watery, light smoked wheat, dirty bitters, rice, earthy, unbalanced all in all! Aftertaste is bitter, wheat, herbs, dull... Low carbo, creay mouthfeel, medium unbalanced body and a creamy texture. Expectations were quite high, but I wasn’t enthousiastic in the beginning, far from enthousiastic! After 10 to 15 minutes of breathing it became a tad better bad still bad... Unbalanced! Pity! I couldn’t finish it!

77ships (3594) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Thanks for sharing Sebletitje. 33 cl. bottle sampled. New Belgian brewery, located close to Orval (the brewery in the town Orval) so maybe they are using their yeast as well? Nice ancient theatre themed label. Pours a murky musty orange with little, patchy white head. Smell is sweet grapefruit, plaster, oddly seems a bit vintage, very thick, surplus of yeast, sweet malts and lightly dusty fruits. Taste is bitter esters, too much, thick layer of yeast, plaster, very light cellar notes (odd), overripe, lightly mouldy fruits, grapefruit & peach, bitter herbal in the finish, hint plastic. Body is dominated by excessive yeast. Agreable.
The breweries website is only their logo at the moment - like the old Darkthrone website.

Poured hazy light yellow with a frothy off white head. Aroma of light spice and lactose, soft malt. Medium body, flavour of an average saison.
