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 (4438) - 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 (4667) - 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 (6767) - 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.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2012
15cl sample @ ZBF’12. Dorée, col blanc fin. Citronné houblonné qui reste bien en avant sur le palais, le tout est sec avec un semblant de houblon donnant un léger côté épicé en bouche, herbacé et ce profile malt typique.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 28/IV/2012 - 75cl @ ZBF 2012 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2012-421)

Clear orange beer, big aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, lychees, passion fruits, mandarins, little cheesy. MF: a bit too much carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very cheesy, yeast character, lemon, little fruity, bit soapy bitterness. Aftertaste: citrus peel, some spices, bitter herbal ending. Pretty good, simply LOVE the label!
