BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2013
On tap at Baileys - poured a bright golden with a huge whipped cream head. Funky barnyard pears and spice. A nice sharp acidity balanced out by earthy hops. A beautiful beer.

PanMarek (77) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Mild hop aroma with a touch of yeast and tartness. Some malt in the background but very subdued. Dark golden pour with thin foam. The taste is mild, considering it is classified as a a Belgian strong ale. Peppery touches, with some citrusy hops in the middle and a faint malty finish. Very little alcohol on the tongue. The oak helps control the sweetness and provides a dry finish. Lively and dry mouthfeel. Overall, a well-balanced but surprisingly shy Belgian.

I’ve rewritten this as I go, just not sure about this thing. Sour, yeast, wood, and farmhouse funk - this beer has it all. Pours looking like a tripel, with sour notes on the nose. Flavor is vinegar-ish at first, but quickly fades to a tart enjoyable fruitish thing. Finish is fairly dry with lingering sour notes. Interesting for sure, but not my thing.

Nice beer. Sour taste, with good balance. Fresh aromas of pine and fruit. Nice sparkling palate.

Mesjasz (853) - Lodz, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Butelka. Aromat bardzo owocowy podszyty dzikością i beczką. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekko gorzki i słodki. W smaku sporo owoców, szczególne cytrusy, skórki owocowe, funk. Bardzo blisko klimatu saison. Super.

heman (538) - Tychy, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Barwa złota, piwo mętne. Aromat całkowicie zdziczały (spocony koń, łajno w stajni) z nutami cytrusowymi i octowymi. W smaku wyraźnie, niemal octowo kwaśne, stajnia ponownie wyczuwalna, lekkie nuty biszkoptowe, karmelowe w tle.

Ysok02 (794) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2016
Une bière puissante à la robe blonde et à la mousse peu abondante. Un nez qui évoque les Brett, puis un coté suret et des fruits acidulés, de la groseille verte, de la rhubarbe sur un fond boisé. Une bouche droite et tendue, une belle trame acidulée et une finale équilibrée. Un bière entre la strong ale et la sour ale. Très agréable.

AgentAle (1431) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2016
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, funk, straw, and light vinegar. Taste is light sweet malts, red wine, soured grapes, and tart. Faint hints of passionfruit and apricot. The sourness actually fades away which is quite impressive for the genre. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

SPDickerman (1121) - Texas, USA - APR 23, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Smells of wheat, fruit, subtle funk and tartness. Taste is funky, light tartness, subtle fruit and breadiness. Medium-bodied with a fizzy texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza finishes with a short lasting funkiness.

ebone1988 (1183) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2016
Aroma is tart, sweet fruity hops, dusty, barnyard, musky. Appearance is hazy, straw golden, white head. Taste is citrus, tart, barnyard, dusty, earthy hops, nice. Mouthfeel is dry, light to medium body, crisp carbonation, dusty aftertaste. Overall, this one is quite delicious. Like a tarter version of Orval.
