metalspice (389) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2015
Brunorange og grumsete med offwhite skum som forsvinner fort .Aromaen starter som en rein ipa med masse frukt. Etter hvert kommer den gressaktige aromaen fra det belgiske gjæret frem. Gress og gjær er fremtredende i smaken sammen med litt frukt, Fin bitterhet på slutten. Noe tynn munnfølelse.

espenra (943) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2015
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 736. Bottled 2014-04-22. Best before 2015-10-22. Dark orange colour with a medium big white foamy head that settles down fast. Aroma is floral and sweet. Honey, malty, belgian yeast. Flavour is sweet and floral. Honey and belgian yeast again. Fruity. Some hoppy notes, but there’s really not too much hops here anymore. Could be the age of course. Medium long aftertaste.

FatPhil (11835) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2015
500ml bottle (Zmogsala2015, Vilnius)
Nice fresh aroma. Light caramelly malts, citrussy and fruity hops. Crisp palate. Nice hops give a peppery finish. Not seeing the "belgisk" in this, as presumably american hops are dominating. Use of "Belgian Ale Yeast Number 7" does not magically make your beer a Belgian Ale.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2015
Medium, dense, light-yellowish head over clear-copper beer, lazily carbonated. Catty, Valerian-like hops prominent in the nose (Belgisk??), dusty citrus, grapefruit,,.. (Belgisk??) More, quite resiny hops, citruspeel, grapefruit, finish being wry-bitter, even metallic (Belgisk??). Bitter dried apricots. Quite slick, feels rather well-bodied. I get it, now. Belgisk must be Bokmal for American. Good beer, though.
