DocJitsu (1712) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden with a short white head. Faint nose. Lightly sweet. I don’t know where the ETOH is hidden. Not nearly malty enough for the ABV. Drinks very lightly. Competing tartness and sweetness, though at a subdued level.

[backlog] 25-11-15 / 750ml bottle at home, bought in a store in Rochefort, Belgium. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.75/5

6 oz. pour, on tap at City Works in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 8-11-16. Clear to lightly hazy gold. Small amount of beige head. Good lacing. Juicy, golden raisin smell. A bit of spice and dust in the aroma. Mineral, metallic flavor. Frothy in the palate. Medium body. Overall, a nothing beer.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2016 C’est une bien belle mélodie que nous offre notre escargot saxophoniste. Les premières notes sont piano, permettant aux levures de s’exprimer et laissant en bouche des notes de céréales. La sonorité monte alors crescendo pour laisser place au houblon,l"amertume et des notes citronnées. Calmement, nous retombons alors, decrescendo vers des notes plus alcooliques. La longueur en bouche étant très appréciable. Nous regretterons que notre escargot manque de "caisse" et que la corpulence de la saxo ne soit plus importante. Son blond, tirant sur l’ambré, sa robe légèrement opaque et sa forte effervescence donne de surcroît du rythme à cette bière. Laissez donc vous porter par la musique....

It pours clear and golden with a huge white head. The aroma contains fruits, spices, yeast, honey and hops. It tastes medium sweet and bitter with a light dry finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Quite complex.

Sparkling pale golden, sparkling lightly, big white frothy head. Mildly sweet aroma, bit chalky, soapy, cooked fruits, yeast, mild pepper. Light body, semidry, crisp, long fruity finish. Ok, flavor and palate work well, easy to drink, fresh.

MelvinKalksma (1002) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, hops and spices.

Hazy golden beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and Belgian yeast; ends slightly dry with hops and spices.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. A Belgian Strong Ale with spicy yeast tastes so great if it is balanced.

eManu (535) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2016
From a 33cl bottle, pours a amber color with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of malt, honey and herbs. Flavors of malts, dry grass, straw, herbs, spices, honey. Nice texture, grainy and sparkling. Nice boozy feel with more complex taste of sweet and slight bitterness of resinous finish. Quite tasty and enjoyable.
