GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 13, 2012
Botella de 330ml. Copa Globo. Saboreada en jun´12. Color dorado y apariencia algo velada. Corona blanca y fugaz que deja un solitario anillo en la superficie. Los aromas son los esperados en una Belga: malta cristal, caramelos, limón, azúcar, levadura y especias. Notas de mandarina. Sabor cálido, azucarado y especiado desde el primer sorbo. Leve amargor de naranja. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Finallargo y afrutado. 330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Golden color, chill haze appearance. Brief, white in color, crown. A single ring remains on top. Aromas as expected from a Belgian: crystal malt, candies, lemon, sugar, yeast & spices. Tangerine notes. Warming, sugary & spiced flavor at first sip. Slightly orangish bitter. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Lasting fruity finish.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
19th May 2012: 0.75 litre cork and caged bottle, well in date, poured into three glasses. Lager looking brew, clear and crisp with a slight haze in the last glass as a minute amount of sediment managed to leave the bottle. Thin white head added to the lager/pilsner appearance. The nose was subdued: light hints of bread and yeast with a sprinkling of malt. The taste was boring: a dry and bitter finish didn’t help the overall experience at all, sadly it didn’t even start off well. Weak and a little thin body wise also. Let’s just say we didn’t get on too well and I’ll not be having another.

(750ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, grass, minerals, coriander, and light soap. Flavor of yeast, earth, grain, and grass with a dry finish.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma of spice, pine, seeds. Taste is brown bread, toffee, yeast. OK.

Borresteijn (4928) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2012
33cl Bottle from an organic shop. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of grain, sugar cane, some spice, musty. Flavour is light sweet, light malty, grainy, sugar cane, some weird flavour I can’t pinpoint, bittersweet finish. Light bodied. OK.

Swaroga (1469) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
75cl bottle. Clear golden with almost non existing white head. Nose : hay and bread malts. Fruity citrus with some floral honey notes. Sip : It’s watery with a bit oily texture, small carbonation. Little sweet with small bitter hop ending. It tastes like a "Saison" beer with a crossing of a simple pale lager.

MaartenRF10 (1614) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2011
Vrij troebel, geelbruin. Niet zo’n aantrekkelijk uiterlijk. Goeie witte kraag, dat wel. Zacht in de mond, vol met behoorlijk wat koolzuur. Eerste dat opvalt in de smaak is de honing. Verder iets van fruit en hop. Aardig bier.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 5/20
diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2011
Lightly hazy blond body. Slightly off-white creamy head (of the books). Disgusting aroma of fat, salami, wine(?), anise (bit), orange (bit), spices. It is mainly the first part that makes it disgusting, even it would not be there it could have been ok. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. The disturbing factor is also present in the flavour and dominates everything. I love experimenting, but obviously not always the result.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle, 6%. Aroma of refreshingly spicy hops. Clear shiny golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is of biscuity malts with a little sweetness. Medium bitterness. Hint of yeast like expected, but not too much. A well-balanced and rather clean Belgian.
