muzzlehatch (4420) - 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.

RichardW (1739) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottled Booths. Interesting chalk and concrete notes, but soon taken over by soapy pineapple and peach flavours. Smooth sweetness, light Belgian yeastiness. Lovely gold/amber appearance. Plummy finish. A characterful beer

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
33cl bottle bb04/2016 from Colmar. (Overly) Clean transparent golden pour. Nose of diluted honey, some toast and warning alcohol. Herbal, metallic hops join faintly almond-like refined pale malts offering up some notes of apricot and apple, before drifting off into amped, boozy Imperial Pilsner nomansland, towards a clean, almost Calvados/jenever finish with a bitter herbal hop insistence. Biere de Garde/Tripel crossover in that respect. Overall rather well done, but a bit of an onslaught.
