aenima (234) - 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 (1480) - 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 (408) - 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.

Bue à la pression. Belle couleur ambrée trouble. Equilibrée et agréable à boire. Assez neutre en général.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark amber, quite hazy. Caramel apples, dates, light spice. Light effervescent mouthfeel. Cidery qualities, but with obvious malt structure. Quite odd and awkward really.

tom10101 (2612) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Hazy amber with a medium mostly lasting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, some spicy notes, yeast and light fruity notes. Taste is also of caramel with a light acidic presence, yeast and some spiciness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Average Belgian Ale. Too much caramel. Not as sharp as I was expecting considering other ratings.
