williamstome (889) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Dark brown pour. Malty aroma. Flavor was malty with belgian yeast and oh my god prunes. Whole lotta prunes. A great start, but overall not terribly interesting. A bit disappointed, as it came highly recommended.

Poured a deep reddish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet, dark fruit and toasted malt. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, lightly malted.

ForlornHope (48) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
75 CL bottle decanted into jug. Pours with a massive head that quickly dies to a flat drink. Beefy aroma. Once it clears, it is a semi-opaque ambree. Taste is again beefy, bitter and dry. Thin palate. Overall I was expecting much better from this over-hyped beer. Perhaps I had a bad one, but that’s all it takes. I will not be seeking this one out again.

aenima (258) - Askim, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2014
Nice reddish colour. Very much spices in the aroma. The taste is also spicy. Dry finish with little bitterness. Missing some complexity in the flavour.

bartlebier (1718) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Tap@ZBF 2014-ZA. Pleasant enough Belgian ale/saison crossover from tweaked saison specialists Jandrain-J. Both style currents seem to contradict each other here, though, with a pleasant fruitiness stopped short by dryness before it develops, adding chalk to pear/apple/tangerine or spiced caramel malts to saison citrus. Still on the fence, will revisit bottled. / Rerate bottled, 75cl bottle, merci! Much more an exotically hopped, luscious Spéciale belge than a "Belgian farmhouse ale", with very organic, richly fragrant amber malts and velvet yeast profile. Peach, caramel, earthy. Pretty straightforward for its 7% but good.

hobsch (500) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
From tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours deep amber to brown with small white head. Aroma is yeasty, cheesy, sharp, spicy. Taste is medium bitter, light to medium sweet, slightly malty, spices, rather dry. Light bodied, medium carbonation, sessionable, bit watery. Good.

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 10, 2014
Bue à la pression. Belle couleur ambrée trouble. Equilibrée et agréable à boire. Assez neutre en général.
