onystrom (1318) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2012
Hazy golden color with fine head. The flavor is citrus hops fine balanced but seems a bit weak, most have been too cold...

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 28, 2012
Lot of smoke when popping this open. Pours a huge bubbly, soapy white head over a light hazy golden body. Lively. Fresh Belgian yeast, sharp grassy hops, cereal and uncooked vegetables. Foamy mouthfeel too, giving rise to a sharp uncontrolled feel and concealing anything beyond a straightforward bitterness. Classic Belgian on steroids but without really accentuating the taste. Hard to rate, then. I suppose I like it. (33cl bottle, reasonably priced)

# 3030 ersma: „blond hoppenbier“ - was ist das denn für eine sorte? goldfarben und recht klar, aber mit vielen kleinen schwebeteilchen. mittelviel schaum, der mittelstabil ist. der geruch ist deutlich fruchtig und hefig. reife birne, saurer apfel, pasionsfrucht. der antrunk ist deutlich hopfig, bitter, fruchtig, kräuterartig. ein wenig an wermut erinnernd. aromen von zitrus und beeren, passionsfrucht und apfel. dahinter aber auch malzige anklänge und etwas hefe. zur mitte hin zieht die bitterkeit noch mal an, auch die hefe wird deutlicher. die aromen bleiben bis in den abgang erhalten. hier nimmt die bitterkeit langsam etwas ab, und leicht malzig-süßliche aromen werden deutlicher. ewig langer nachhall. die 0.33-l-knolle (es gibt das bier auch in der 0.75-champagner-flasche) hat ein drömelig wirkendes etikett. sieht aus wie 60er jahre. fazit: hallertauer, centennial und cascade sind da drin. eine ungewöhnliche mischung, obwohl ich zum brauen auch gern eine mischung aus hallertauer und ami-hopfen verwende. sehr ungewöhnlich vom geschmack. sorte? am ehesten noch ein ipa. auf jeden fall probierenswert. 11,12,12,11,8,12 11,55

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2012
(75 cl bottle) Pours a hazy, golden color with a nice, foamy head. Spicy and grassy, slightly soapy smell of fresh hops. Aroma has a touch of bubblegum, apricots, citrus fruits, grass and resin. The yeast seems to be of a kind often used in Belgian beers. Taste is quite bitter, no sweetness. Full bodied, dry finish. Would not call this an IPA, though, seems more like a strong (hoppy) blond or a saison to me. But I like it!

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2012
Slightly hazy blond beer, white head. Spicy aroma, fruity hops, citrus, apricot, quite malty. Medium sweet flavour, quite bitter hops, fruity citrus tones. Quite dry, medium bitter finish.
(Draught @ Café Samson, Nijmegen)

MaartenRF10 (1566) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2012
Slightly hazy light golden beer with nice white head. Nose is some hops and some sweetness. Both nose and taste are not IPA, for that there’s definitely not enough hops. It’s yeasty, a little hoppy, soft. Bit like Duvel or something like that.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle@Home. Nice aroma, fruity hops. Golden/yellow, white firm head, good lace. Sweetish, light fruity, rather bitter finish, light yeasty. Missing some character and complexity. Light sticky. Bit boring but drinkable.
