Nephilium (1692) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2011
This opens with a big boozy aroma of alcohol, which eventually settles down into an overpowering sweet aroma. It pours a clear golden color, with a big craggy white head, leaving lacing on the side as it fades away. Interesting flavor... sweet and sugary, with the alcohol hidden. Slick and light on the palate. Not a bad sipper, although with a name of Hopus, I was expecting a bigger hop blast.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden, head has a really high sustain. Aroma is sweetish and vinous, malty-hoppy. Thick palate, heavy body. Taste is malty and also hoppy, high on bitterness that seems to be the result of the hops mixing together with the alcohol. Very interesting.

greenclansman (905) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUL 12, 2011
A Belgian ale that has nothing to do with its kind. It has some similarities, but the bitterness of the hops make it even better. Thick foam that prevents you from smelling it properly. I liked it very much

Benzai (14029) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Don’t really smell much hop in this one, too bad. The carbonation and body are great. Really suits the 8.5 ABV.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2011
From tap, enjoyed with lunch @The Bierkamer, Kluizen-Ertvelde. Big flufffy lasting and lacing white head. Plain gold colored body. Discreet and clean hoppy and crisp malty aroma. Dry/sweet pale malts in the flavor. Lght alcohol tones. Tight bitterness. Medium body. Hop bitterness linger in the ending. Good food pairing.

DutchDrebus (5563) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle @ Buitenlust, Oirschot. Can’t decide whether to like or hate the glass. I do like the beer though. Usually drink half of it without the yeast on the bottom and then pour it in. Great beer.

zvikar (4134) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 9, 2011
Pours a tripel color with a huge white head, aroma of malt, sugars, honey, yeast and notes of bubblegum, flavor of malt, biscuit, toasted bread, sugar can and some herby hops, medium bodied, decent.
