ebmalon (62) - Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2010
.33cl swingtop poured to Hopus glass with sediment poured to Hopus "shot glass" served on the side. Quite the production in service was made at Pochenkeller in Brussels. Pour is hazy orange despite having the sed. separated to side "shot". Aroma is very hoppy and sweet. Surprisingly, hops were not noticeable in the taste. Sweet toasty malt and caramel and average hop which gave it its sweetness but very little bitterness. Overall a really nice beer but loses points for not being all that hoppy as promised.

imdownthepub (10985) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml at The Swan & Rushes, Leicester. Orange gold with white head. Malty, biscuity with yeasty spices laced through, alcohol notes, bitterness, corriander, not a great deal of balance but reasonable enough.

Fratto (2709) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle at the Gingerman Fort Worth. Golden pour with a huge white head. Aroma is malt, lots of honey, and a little floral hop. Taste is floral, more honey, a tart sweetness, and big malt finish. Alcohol isn’t apparent until later. Overall score takes a hit for being way over priced. I could have two or three better beers for the price of one of these.

inbirraveritas (1292) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2010
Ködös aranyszínű belga, melynek tömött, krémes habja tejszín módjára megmarad a főzet tetején ill. nyomot hagy a pohár szélén. Száraz illata gabonás, fűszeres és enyhén alkoholos. Édes, gyümölcsös jelleggel és szirupos testtel indul, száraz/gyantás karakterű aromája gabonát és citrusokat hordoz magában, íze kenyeret idéző. Gyantás és fanyar befejezése (melynek során az alkohol is viszonylag erőteljesen előtérbe kerül) citrusos, fűszeres és igen száraz. Összességében nem egy nagy szám, de már viszonylag rég ittam utoljára ilyen gyantás karakterű sört, úgyhogy emiatt unikum volt…

No havia llegit res i m’esperava una belga de les tipiques, al contrari, més amarga, gust de lupul, bona, bona!

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle@Home. Dark yellow, white head, good lace. Very sweet, rather bitter, fruity, cookies, salty, some citrus. Full and very alcoholic. You take a sip and then BAM! explodes in your mouth. I didn’t expect that.

Davros (2164) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours pale gold/straw with a large white head. Nose shows floury/bready yeast and wheat with some earthy, floral green hops in the background. Flavours are very similar but are loads sweeter and also show some spicy hops. Finishes with a mild but somewhat off-putting bitterness. Carbonation should be higher.

Barrelbelly (658) - BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2010
Pours with a medium head that lasts a while. Aroma of hop, hints of coriander, apricot and flowers. Taste of sweet hop, very lightly bitter.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured honey-yellow color and an off-white, creamy, slowly collapsing head. Coriander, honey, hops, fruits, somewhat floral. A pleasant one. Sweet and bitter taste in a medium body with high carbonation. Delivers what you expect of it. Good.
