kiwianer (3380) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle @ Tilburgs Bierfestival 2012. The taste is a bit barley, hay, malty, and of course hoppy. But there is a nice balance between the barley-malt and the hop flavours. I like this idea it is not that strong alcoholic and hoppy but it has more different and nice flavours. A fine and special IPA. Very Good! 11/13/13/12/-/12

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!

Vaiz (3553) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus, spicy and a bit yeasty. Flavor is spicy hops, quite bitter and very well balanced. Very nice brew.

Countbeer (4709) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Draught: @TBF’11: Medium white head, disappears quick, on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Smell typical blond with a mix of ipa, hops and soap. Taste hops, fruits, soap, wheat, sweets, light biiter and lighter sweet. Fruity light dry aftertaste. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2011
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Pale blond color, somewhat hazy. White creamy head. Aroma’s of fresh hops, a bit sweet fruits, grain/malt & herbal. Flavor is somewhat caramel sweet and bitterish. Soft carbonation. Finishes with a strong, quite harsh bitterness. Lives up to its name. Nice!

jeverszeuge (625) - GERMANY - FEB 11, 2012
# 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

Vignale (2174) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2013
Bottle from Beernavigater. BB dec, 2013. Pours dark straw coloured with lots of yeast sediment, medium head that disappears fast. Floral, yeasty and fruity tones on the nose but not very IPAish. More hoppy blond. The taste is fresh, floral, yeasty and with a touch of lemon peel that also adds a little bitterness. Nicely balnaced and a refreshing drink. Matched a white fish very well.

Douberd (2585) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.2% Dark but pale orange colour on the body, with bits as tiny as dust swimming in it, making the beer a tad hazy. Almost two fingers of white head, soapy, with average retention, leaving thick lacing around the glass’s wall. Aroma is malty with light hops notes, toffee, some cookie dough, mandarines. Nice taste, sweet and malty at first, with notes of citrus and mandarines, orange cake. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste, with good duration too. Medium thick body, very good for that alcohol level, average carbonation. Dry palate. Overall very good, decent and honest.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
Drinking using coaster the brewer of this beer gave to me when I saw him at Beerkoening, nice guy overall. The beer is orange and clear. there’s good head which lasts fair amount of time. Smell is a bit like from basement. Taste is light and only little bit sugary. Aroma is not very strong. There is some hops which are floral and get better if you wait a bit. I can also find vanilla. Palate is light with average carbonation, if not even lively. Texture is quite thin, but this takes a while to finish which IMHO is a good thing. Overall a good beer.
