Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Veiled golden color with a powerful storm of activity. Thick creamy and super frothy white 5 fingers island cloudy head, lasting more than 20 minutes, creating thick leggings. Flavors of cheese, coriander, banana yeast, strong presence of grains, floral bouquet, some hops, hints of wood and a nice vinous and roasted feel. Some ester fruits like apples, a hint of honey, oaky, grassy, and orangy clove. Pleasant sugary feel yet sharp and bitter. Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Medium to strong finish of long length, ending with a burned malty tongue coat, hoppy grass feel, warming alcohol, yeasty, barrel aged feel, and fruity grapefruits. Overall this is an outstanding craft with rich delicious yet accessible flavors for the style and strength. Very fresh but the smell is a little rotten yet still pleasant. Incredible quality stuff. Complex, balanced, well intensified, filling, warming, a pleasure to drink.

puboflyons (3098) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2016
From the corked, caged, and foiled 750 ml bottle with an 05/16 bottling date. Orange-yellow pour underneath a big, white foamy head. Active carbonation. I get a forward aroma of Saltine crackers, Graham crackers, orange zest, and butterscotch. Light to medium body. The taste is also very cracker-like with toasted bread and a bitter and fruity finish. Effervescent.

QcBeer (134) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2016
Couleur dorée 100% transparente. Une épaisse mousse pétillante recouvre ce liquide formée de grosses bulles avec une effervescence des plus démoniaque. ça sent la fleur ŕ pétale blanche, de petit fruit et la levure belge. En bouche, un léger soupçon de pomme verte et de sucre brun, on ressent qui a de l’alcool mais on ne la goűte pas du tout. Une finale sčche et légčrement épicé. Correct

Fules (792) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 20, 2016
Iszonyú nagy habja van, és rendkívül lassan apad. Színe enyhén homályos borostyán sárga. Friss, fűszeres illat. Finom üdítő savanykásság, jelzés értékű édességgel. Erős keserűsség, ami utóízében még durvábbá válik. Jellegzetes komlós ízvilág, a lágerekre hasonlít. Testes sör, érezni hogy erős.

sloshgator (708) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Brouwerij Huyghe La Guillotine has strong malty notes but lacks complexity. Pour is a medium amber color but had a scant head. Just a bit of malt in the aroma. Taste is sweet with a syrupy body to match -- not much else going on here. La Guillotine is ok for last beer before the knife.
