muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2008
750 ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Duvel glass. Big fluffy lasting head laces generously when it fails atop the translucent amber-gold body....grassy, initially pil-like fresh aroma on more exploration offers some funkiness, but also a touch of skunk-like unpleasantness....the body is moderately sweet to start, some tart notes coming in midpalate, with a lightly sour, milky character towards the finish, a bit of vegetal character....I get the feeling that the wheat and especially the rice did not favor this beer; on the whole, so-so.

Mooi goudgeel helder bier, frisse bittere hopsmaak, wat notig van smaak. Hopsmaak blijft lang in de mond. Geen slechte Biere de Garde, maar ook geen memorabele.

wimpyjoe (3743) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Golden with a thin head. Good robust earthy aroma, although in taste its strength is dominant. Interesting but not the greatest of its style.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schöne helle Farbe, süßlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine scharf-vergorene Note hinzu, immernoch leicht süß, aber irgendwie penetrant. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, süß-herb und irgendwie penetrant.
→ Nicht mein Bier, aber noch ganz gut zu trinken! 7+11+6+6
