Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2009
Presentation is everything with this beer, and it adds up to a whole. The yeast residue is served on the side, and good tip I must say, be drank in advance of the beer. You get a fairly good impression of and get used to the bitterness. Than, an easy enjoyment. Hops and malts palate unfolds. No pity sip left. Enjoyed completely, and completely enjoyed.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2009
Bottled, flip-top (Bs, BB 03/2011). Clear orange-golden color, big cloudy off-white head. I don’t have any hops in the nose, but glueish fruityness and some spices. Crisp carbonation. Triple-like spiceyness, apricot, citrus and alcohol. A bit sour too. In the middle of the pack.

Bottle at the Evening Star, Brighton, 14th July 09. Very clear bright yellow with a big lacy head. Very fresh and ckean hop aroma. Ditto taste, helped by a smooth and refined palate. Quite wheat beer-like in some aspects.

jaghana (3819) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 18, 2009

tmc90 (17) - BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2009
Beautiful in the glass with a mountainous long-lasting head. Individual hoppy and citrus flavour not delivered by any other beer I’ve tasted with an ABV this high. Alcohol doesn’t come through very much which makes this very refreshing.

skortila (4483) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2009
Bottled @ In de Wildeman. Aroma has strong hoppiness, citrus, some grass and yeast. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a white, lasting head. The taste is bitter, citric, bit grainy, bit malty and yeasty. Nice.
