DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Deep clear golden color with a huge white head. Pleasant aroma of slightly spicy yeast, some fruitiness and some spicy hops. Flavor starts sweet with malt, fruits, and light honey hints and continues drier and spicy with some hops and alcohol in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad. would have been nice if it was just a tad drier, but still not bad.

ryecatcher (938) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2013
750mL Bottle. Pours a medium amber, big fluffy white head, nice retntion and lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast and a hint of cider. Mouth is medium bodied, spicy yeast, lemon peel, biscuit hoppy bitterness up front, then some vanilla and cider on the back end. Ever so slightly astringent, but I think cellaring may mellow it out. Overall decent.

thornecb (4711) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white micro head with excellent retention tophats as it slowly recedes. Sweet and sour summer fruit aromas. Crisp with sour berries upfront turning to bread and grass in the middle before the dry lasting sourdough finish.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. I got what I expected. Lot of that sweetish hops in the start mixed with some vanilla notes and bigger carbo. Was quite wasy to drink but combined with that ABV it scored at once. Nice one for sure but a Duvel scores better without being that special.

PorterPounder (5970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 330 ml bottle. Pours a medium golden with a soft snow white head that leave a nice layer of lacing. Aroma has some kid Flinstones vitamins accents, a but of yeast, a touch of lemon. Flavor is pleasant with some yeasty notes, a bit of tangy sourness, a touch of lemon tartness and a back end of saffron-like spiciness. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. Decent.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from ALBO. BBF 12/2015. Same kind of painted milk bottle as their most famous beer. Pours a clear Champagne bubbly with a fine white head. Big esters nose, slight apple & floral, candy sugar and slight banana. Bitter esters flavour, boozy, touch white pepper, bit hay, esters, phenolic, boozy, touch chemicals and slight candy sugar. Very high carb. Another one of those in short.
