asedzie (610) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma has grassiness, light, almost flowery oily garlic fragrance just barely coming through. Flavor is a little lacking in nuance, light sweetness, mild herbal flavored hop resins lingering through to the finish, definite earthy-vegetable hint of garlic as well. Nicely composed, interesting use of the spice, overall not something I would necessarily seek out, but nice triple to mull over nonetheless.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle at Palace Hotel, Poperinge, Belgium.
Pours an average cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is semi-sweet hops and slightly wet grass. Flavor is buttery malt and sweet, bready, rose hops with a coriander finish. Slick on the tongue. Very good.

Vaiz (3394) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle from the local bio-supermarket at home. Pours a clear golden color with a creamy white head, leaving some lacing. Aroma of spices, fruits and malts. Flavor is spicy, slightly sweet in the beginning and quite bitter and dry in the finish. Lively carbonation and a creamy texture. Quite a surprising brew, not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 750mL C&C thanks to Travlr. Poured a clear straw with a towering white head and nice lace. Nose is lemon, grain, butter/diacetyl. tangerine, candy. Taste is buttery, grainy, odd, sickly sweet. Ick. 5/15/2011 6/4/6/3/12=3.1

330mL in Ghent. Pours slightly hazy yellow with okay lacing. Slight vinegar on the nose along with grassy hops, pepper, and light fruits. Taste is spicy alcohol, yeast, spicy hops. Spritzy palate. The rest of my notes from here on are unintelligible. For instance: "ambiguous movement towards a style." 3/15/2010 7/3/7/3/12=3.2

rand (1300) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl from Willems in Grobbendonk (B). Red blonde with creamy white head. Complex aromas, fruity and malty, we feel the mellow side of the force and plants. Sweet and round flavour but hoppy, touches herb and salt. Light acidity. Well balance with more bitterness in final, hints of garlic but also almond and lemon-orange zest.
