YigSvartka (72) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Large frothy head with a nearly opaque golden yellow body. Typical robust blonde aroma consisting of yeast, malt, and perhaps a wee bit of banana. Heavy, creamy body. Initially quite smooth and creamy with notes of yeast and banana, but some tingling spice. Finishes with some hops and alcohol.

It is pretty complex, to say the least. It has a very good balance between malts and hops, with bread, grains, citrus, dry herbs, yeast and spices. Medium sweet taste and a dry long finish. Average carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. It appears hazy golden with a big frothy head. An excellent beer.

Pours amber with white head. Aroma is tipical belgian yeast, a bit malty, honey, no hops. Taste is warming, low carbonation, alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced beer for colder days.

pumpkinhead2 (372) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Bière jaune soleil tirant sur l’orangée, remplie de particules en suspension pouvant être assez grosses, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un col blanc immaculé, dense et mousseux, qui se réduit tout doucement en traçant son chemin sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain frais, malt mielleux et fruits du verger (pêche et poire surtout). Davantage en arrière-plan, on note une levure typiquement belge, et quelques effluves plus herbacés (houblon ou coriandre?). Nez bien agréable, belle intensité, complexité un peu faible cependant. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne-faible au palais. Au goût, on note d’abord du pain frais et un malt mielleux, suivi d’un abondant fruité, pêche et poire comme le nez laissait présager, mais également agrumes (orange et pamplemousse) provenant fort probablement du houblon. De petites notes herbacées et poivrées se pointent lors d’une finale à l’amertume de faible à modérée. La levure belge, ainsi qu’un soupçon d’alcool, restent davantage en trame de fond. Bon goût, très belle intensité, plus complexe en bouche qu’au nez, très bonne bière.

[5494-20130617] Tap. Cereal malt grain aroma has a toasted burlap note. Slightly hazy, brown orange body with a big long-lasting creamy white head and thick lacing. Sweet mouldy green beans and sugary waffle wafers flavour. Medium body. The initial sweetness threw me a little but got used to it. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

Het is een prachtig bier,maar wel verradelijk door zijn redelijk hoog alcohol gehalte !

Draught at Plus que Parfait, Bergerac on 21 August. Poured a hazy golden, with a dense white head. Aroma of tinned fruit, Belgian yeast, straw and pineapples. Sweet fruity flavours, with some grassy bitter hops and caramel. Finish was brown sugar, bananas and chewy grain.
