jamestulloch (1406) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle at Dabbe, Pisa. Hazy golden body with a huge white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of straw, white sugar and bitter hops. Flavour of green apple, salt, orange and underripe pear. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Considering its strength, this is easy drinking and refreshing.

Lekker biertje. Hoppig, fruitig, zoet maar wel stevig. Heerlijk aroma en zachte, bittere afdronk..

A very nice balanced beer. Hoppy of course, but not overly bitter. Fruity and sweet as well. one of my favourite hoppy Belgian beers.

Aroma: malts, bread, caramel. Appearance: light pale, slightly hazy gold, big white frothy head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, crisp, floral hops, malty feel, bread, light sugars. Overall: nice Belgian Strong Ale, nice palate, has something of a Lager-like palate, but more flavourful. Bottle from Beer of Belgium, Ypres.

Serapac (110) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, Le Diplo, Brussels. Amber, large white head. Aroma mostly malts, taste surprisingly sweet- bananas, custard, palate then turn bitter. Medium body. For the high abv (8.5%), one would expect more complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cfrancis (2376) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy light gold with a huge pillowy white top. Good thing I read about this one possibly being a gusher. Aroma is big cereal malts, yeast and citrus hops. Taste is again light cereal hops, yeast and a moderate citrus hop bite. More bitter than hop flavouring.

bunget (556) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
750ml bottle. Clear golden body, huge white fluffy head with good retention. Aroma of yeast, grains and herbal hops, coriander, leather, pepper. Taste of yeast and herbs, pepper, metallic notes and a strong malt sweetness. Strongly alcoholic, even if it was well chilled.

Freaky_tiki (560) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours honey yellow with two finger cap of fuzzy white suds. It’s cocktail hour up north at the cabin & the arguments are breaking out (are there enough lemons & who forgot the gin) so I just grabbed this beer & gave the bottle a shake. It’s a peppery, leafy & bubbly brew. It’s a pleasure to drink. Won’t blow your mind but it’ll make you happy. Oh look someone just handed me a martini. Double fisting time, daddy-o.
