Bretteux (181) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, - APR 17, 2013
Le liquide est doré-orangé,opaque,sans col et un petit anneau de mousse.Au nez,on sent bien les levures belges,les agrumes(citron et lime) et des notes poussiéreuses.Au goût,c,’est aigre,citronné,malté et en final bien amère et asséchant .Pour conclure,une saison différente et bien réussi!

TET (2006) - FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
A slightly orange colour, a head is blond, big and dense. Aroma is great, sweet mandarin and papaiyas, also fruitness from yeast, europian hops. Taste is fruitful, oranges, medium and flower hoppyness, also nice sourness. Medium+ bodied, good carbonation, the body could be lighter. Aromatic and enjoyable beer. Very tasteful and remind me from the great Rulles’s beer, thus the brewer is the right way.

SlackerMads (2019) - DENMARK - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. Inviting nose; floral and fruity. A bit punchy in the flavour with some alcohol showing. Notes of honey/flowers, herbs, leafy greens, hay, white bread. Feels fine in the mouth with fluffy carbonation and ok balanced bitterness, though it has some astringency. Somewhat rough finish with light astringency and alcohol. Lots of things to like, but I find it a bit too rough overall.

hangunder (304) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Smells great, lots of wheat-like esters, fresh spices, belgian yeast. A bit sweet smelling. Foamy white long lasting head and a hazy effervescent appearance. Tastes very belgian, tons of belgian yeast here, but comes off a bit sweet -- a bit of funk could help round out the beginning. Finishes fairly dry. Could use a bit more balance, but still refreshing and bright. Medium bodied and highly carbonated.

Bottle - Sweet stone fruit and pale malts. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit, citrus, peppery, bitter and a long finish.
