Sask89 (499) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow colour with lots of floating yeast particles and a big frothy white head. Strong banana and spice scents with a distinct wheat malt character as well. Taste is not really sweet until the finish and for the most part is a little bland, not bitter. Light body, smooth creamy mouth feel, flater carbonation. A little disappointing, but still nice.

I am not a fan of Hoegaarden, but I knew this was going to be different. This has a much more obvious Belgian character. Poured from a bottle at a bar, the waiter said to watch, and true to his word it foamed all over, very active. Good golden colour, clouded by all the yeast, big white foam clears. Inviting rich wheaty blonde aroma, very tasty flavour with a distinct Belgian character but not as heavy. Very satisfying when sat out at a square with the sun coming down and the World going by.

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Vintage 1987, my birth year. Surprisingly clear and lively amber pour with a khaki head. Tons of sherry oxidation that works incredibly well with the caramel and brown sugar notes of the malt. A nice sweet dark fruit character, too. Tastes of sherry, caramel, and dark fruit. Plenty of brown sugar, some mild chocolate, and a lot of oxidation. Really impressive, actually.

licht fruitig aroma, met fruit, parfum en sinasappel in de smaak sinasappelschil, koriander, licht pittig in de afdronk. smaken zijn redelijk op elkaar afgestemd, geen top bier
