chickenflea (328) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Appearance: Lightly hazed, dark copper body with a full fingers worth of meringue-like, whitish foam. Fair amount of spiderweb lacing on the way down. Smell: Foundation of lightly sweet-scented maltiness on which sit fruit notes of pears and apples. Also, a good snap of spices, smelling of everything from clove to pepper. Taste: Sweet, sugary pale maltiness slides in before the spicy taste of cracked cloves, white pepper, cardamon, and even a bit of cinnamon. Fruity, faintly tart tastes of apples and pears along with some soft floral tones. Light bitterness. Drying, warming finish with a lingering spiciness and (still lightly) tart fruitiness in the aftertaste, Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Lightly sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good Belgian brew - you get some upfront sweet maltiness, a complex spice character, and a nice display of fruitiness. A little bit of everything.

Abijen (1402) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a golden orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, sweet yeast and tastes the same. Very sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at Hiranoya. Good graininess, quite sweet, honey maybe. Feels like a triple. Probably is one. Light tropical notes, quite thick. Good stuff. (quite pissed by this stage)

commonmac (266) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Light golden color. Aroma is mild. Lacing quickly disappears. Taste is also mild but easily consumed on a summer day. A little bit of sweetness and some of the Belgian yeast undertones. Unspectacular finish. OK, not great.

Bosbouw (1133) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Iets troebele oranje kleur met veel schuim. Ruikt mout, beetje stoffig. Smaakt ergens naar. Weet niet waarnaar.

brnandersen (1838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber colour with a huge, white fluffy head, that fades to fluffy lumps. Fruity aroma with yeasts, almost bretts-like, pepper, spices, citrus, hay and floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation - bordering aggressive. Long lasting fruity finish with big yeasts, citrus and tart fruits. Rather a lot of yeasts and tart fruits in this one.

Smells of sour fruit and straw. Pours golden and cloudy with thick white head. Tastes of raspberry, bitter orange and other sour fruit (cherry?) slightly sweet, slightly grassy and some spices. The body is medium, low carbonation, slightly bitter. A great tasting beer.

Vignale (2003) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
flaska från beergium. Gyllenfärgad, klar, poröst vitt skum. En lite strakare blond där lite alkohol slår igenom i både doft och smak utan att störa så mycket. Måttlig sötma, lite druvskalssträvhet, lätt estrig äppelfuktighet och drag av apeinskal, annars inga större smaker. Lite väl anonym utan att ha några större fel.
