Ober (2810) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of sweet fruits like citrus with hop bitter. The taste of sweet fruits with notes of spices and hop bitter. The aftertaste is sweet moving to bitter and sparkling.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2012
75cl bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, full sized active white head that lasts for quite a while and leaves a fair lacing. Smell malts, hops, some fruityness. Taste malts, hops, slightly fruity, bitter. Bitter and slightly weird finish, a bit thin bodied, a bit high carbonated. Not bad, but not as good as I had hoped.

DutchDrebus (4003) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow colour with a big white head. Smells toiletrefresher (the tablets they have in urinals in the pub), some hops, some pine. Tastes hoppy, bitter, some grapefruit, malty, some pine. Medium body, full carbo.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2012
No gushing, but once pouring, one ends with 95% of dense, white foam (quite stable) and 5% of clear copper-golden beer; Stinks to high heaven upon opening. Sulphur, cooking cabbage, faeces, but also lunaria, garden herbs, hops. Tastes thankfully better, but the sulphur remains there, and seems to hail from the dried, harsh and crude hops. They might be American, they are not aromatic C-hops - or they have suffered cruelly from the voyage. Finish has reminiscences of smelly running cheese, even when lemon and lemonpeel feature as well. Titillating carbonation, medium bodied, somehow refreshing; It’s not really bad. But it DOES stink.

mjs (4584) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2012
(Bottle, 0.375 l, at Tuulensuu, 20120811) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, grass, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, malts, Belgian style yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, fruity and bitter. A very tasty hoppy and clearly Belgian style beer.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2012
(Bottled, 0.75l) Murky orange with a small, but firm head. Aroma of citrus, lemonadey raspberry, some sour raspberry stones. The same with flavor: wheaty, sourish malt and (rasp)berriness - not much else. Medium to full body, soft but foamy CO2. A decent beer, but the raspbery dominates too much.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. It pours clear deep gold with near white head. The aroma offers up sugar sweet mango sweetness that is lightened by some spicy like hops. The taste is smooth and has a mix of smooth sweet malts, grainy malts, citrus hops and some mango like notes. Around the edges I get notes of spicy hops helping this get into the finish. Pretty nice crisp session beer with nice fairly rich flavor yet extremely drinkable.
