(from 75cL @ home. 8.9% ABV. No batch number to be found, but as the bottle was procured less than a year ago I asume it’s at the right place here)

high_on_hops (748) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a hazy straw gold with a white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of malt, straw, some horse blanket, and a bit of funk. The flavor is light malt and straw up front with a slightly tart finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (4902) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ ACBF 2015. Golden, huge solid white head. Nose is funky, mellow mineral & lightly sweet. Taste is mellow mineral, lactic, plain soy yoghurt, sugar sweet, leaves, spices, bitter herbal,… Lightly fizzy body. Decent but not stellar like some Jester King beer still drinks quite well. I like it. (Thanks for sharing people!!!)

JorisPPattyn (8246) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Small white rim, faintly hazed golden ale. Dusty leaves, farmyard odours, garden herbs & weeds, lemonzeste. Bready flavour, yeast, and hopoverdose if not C-hops, it seems. Spices return after a short lapse. Quite carbonated feel, slick. Too much farmhouse and not enough ale.

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle sample @ ACBF 2015. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme au bouquet laissant percevoir une influence belge levure. Note fruitée fermenté avec un léger rétro-nasal fleuri, euro-noble hops version US. Palais garde, ici aussi, un profil très belge. Pointe de levure sauvage complète le tout. Je note un ajout houblonné noble tirant sur un léger fleuri et fruité. Malt de caractère pâle, pils.

Sample at ACBF 2015 with S&G tasting group. APPEARANCE: clouded blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: hoppy, fruity, lactic. TASTE: dry, malty, unbalanced.
