sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, - OCT 6, 2012
75cl bottle, #328/500. 20€ and yes, a champagne like beer that yet again does not warrant its price. Dorée, col épais blanc/crémeux. Arôme est fleuri rappelant le sureau, levure avec ce profile typique belge surtout dans les houblons. Palais est champenois, citronné et houblonné sont bien mis en avant. Amertume fruitée avec une belle effervescence qui est suivit par un léger profile sucre de canne. Le tout conserve cet aspect brut-demi sec avec un fini fleuri et ce côté renfermé levure.

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours clear golden with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma has sweet malts, light funk, citrus, apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of apple, milky, funk, lemon zest. Light vinious, lingering super dry finish.

RichTheVillan (2125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle share cheers to Shaun; hazy yellow pour with big white frothy head, hay aroma, some farmyard funk in the taste, some citrus notes, quite a decent hit of sourness.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
75cl bottle. Opens with a loud pop and some foam forming in the bottle neck, but no gushing. It pours clear deep golden with a huge white soapy foam that stays forever. Body is extremely sdparkling, just like champagne. Aroma is sweet/acidic with notes of hay, honey and yeast. Taste is again sweet and sour with some lambic-like qualities and a nice spiciness from spices and honey. When it warms up the honey and spices shine thorugh and the alcohol become sperceivable. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with sparkling carbonation. Overall, a truly great beer, flavourful and different. Way above expectations here.

75 cl bottle thanks to Dunbar72! On June 21, 2013.
Hazy golden color, big white head. Potatoe, vegetable, a bit vile scent. Acidic, vinegar, tart taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

tderoeck (4069) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 9/V/13 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: n/a (2013-451)

Clear deep blond beer, big creamy solid white head (grows in the glass overtime), stable and adhesive. Aroma: is this champagne yeast? I think so. Bit woody, fruity, peaches. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, pretty bitter, weird sour touch, almost bretta-like, woody, yeast. Aftertaste: apple skin, sourish, woody, citrus, bitter touch, dry ending. Nice beer. But is this worth +20€ a bottle? HELL NO!

Leighton (9851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Kenneth the Great. Pours clear yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Sugary white bread in the nose. Tangy flavor, lots of pale malts, light hay. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Doughy-bready malt finish, faint tangy notes. Not bad overall.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bzart blond - honey gold, translucent with extremely puffy white head, lasting and effervescent. Plastic nose light lactic, hints of sugar and coin. Flavor stings with light acidity, grass and milky peach, soft and pleasant through end, though too effervescent throughout.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Hopduvel. Hazy gold color, massive ice cream cone head with long retention and delicate lacing. Aroma of dusty summer fruit. Taste is bitter root, light spice, straw. Tasty.

GT2 (7895) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
750mL thanks to Travlr. Pops cork with huge velocity. Wear protective eye wear. Sparkling clear golden. Huge white head with ridiculous retention creating an ice cream scoop appearance. Nose is heavy sugar, something vegetal. Taste is quite nice, actually nicely tangy and mildly lemon acidic. Palate is dry, lemon heavy. Decently refreshing.

Scopey (5529) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to Ken. It pours hazy golden yellow with a large white head. The nose is tart lemon, sherbet, hay, grapefruit light farmyard and faint sourness. The taste is sherbet, lemony, granny smith apple, grapefruit, acidic edge, minerals and well-hidden alcohol. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Well balanced and rather refreshing. Pretty tasty methinks.
