EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, - JUL 8, 2013
Blonde orangée légèrement trouble, pétillance moyenne avec fine bulles, col blanc persistant. Attaque de malt suivie d’une amertume très présente avec des côtés floraux, fruités et une légère sécheresse.

Whereever this is brewed, it ain’t Kerkom. Hasn’t been operating for several years, now. St. Jozef @ Opitter is most probable. Very good, fine & dense yellowish cream head over veiled golden beer with a verdigris sheen, lively carbonated; Very flowery nose, slightly resiny, bit toilet soap - very aromatic and inviting, great even! Bitter, (root)spicy and again a soapy flavour - much less nice than the nose, and even outright crude. Quite a bit of tea, as green tea served too strong. After some time, it mellows, but remaining agressive. Finish has some maltsweetness all the same. Medium bodied, quite slidk, resiny slickness; spritzy carbonation. Bitter flowers - les fleurs du mal, peut-être? An overdose of an unlucky choice of hops, not doubt - maybe one ought to keep sniffing? Surprising for St. Jozef, to say the least.

Bue à la pression. Grosse attaque sur le houblon, houblon en bouche et finale sur le houblon. Bref, à peine trop houblonnée pour moi :)

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with average white head. Aroma is yeast, hops, citrus fruits, pine, apples. Flavor is yeast, hops, apples, malt. Dry yeasty aftertaste. Quite nice actually.

SimonTja (89) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Pours yellow with some orange notes and a white thick head. Smell is yeast dominant, very earthy and some leafs, big hints of alcohol. Taste of clove, bubblegum, which turns into a sharp quite light bitterness with some floral grassy aftertaste. Quite nice, but a lot of alcohol shines through.

Tap in Moeder Fontainas. Wow this one got mixed reviews. Deep golden yellow in colour with a thick head. After several 5% hoppy Belgians this was immediately heavier, more malty booze, hugely yeasty and also hugely hoppy in a European fashion. Quite a lot going on, and not perfectly put together, but I thought it was a good interesting beer. But I do like the yeastier Belgian IPA style.

Hazy dark yellow colour. A very sweet aroma which is also minty. Flavour has some candy sweetness. There’s an element of Blackpool Rock to this one. In the background there is grassy, floral herbal hops and the finish is bitter. Not unpleasant but unusual.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting Feb. 2014. Pours hazy pale yellow with a creamy white head. A tad too carbonated. Grassy and peachy hops. Some yeast. Dry and very bitter.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Odense drinking Belgian Beer in February. Hazy yellow with a small white head, Malty aroma of biscuit and toffee, with phenolic notes of cookie spices, and grassy and citrus notes. Sweetish bready flavour with grassy hops and a harshly bitter finish

Vignale (1805) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Gyllengul, disig, högt vitt skum. Doft och smak av belgisk jäst och örtig gräsig humle med stor beska. Oljig med lite resinsmak i beskan och inga rena humlesmaker i övrigt. Tycker den humlats lite väl aggressivt vilket inte matchar de belgiska jästiga smakerna så väl.
