Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Blonde session beer from the Vosges region with a very thick, stable, dense, yellowish white head and ochre blonde colour, cloudy from the start, with fierce carbonation sustaining the head. Aroma of overripe peach, banana, wet straw, honey, butterscotch, cardboard, tomato but unfortunately also a strange, outright stinking chemical smell reminiscent of ammonia and a faint hint of H2S (rotten egg). Taste begins sweetish, even a tad sugary, fruity, soft bready maltiness with sharp, mineral-like carbo, yeasty and powdery mouthfeel, finish yeasty with grassy hop bitterishness but retronasally there is that awful ammonia again, ruining the entire beer. Saison-like indeed, but the obvious flaws make it very hard to enjoy, could have been a lot better without those off-putting chemical aromas. Drain pour - and leaving a shock because after thousands of beers, this is the first one I had the displeasure of finding ammonia in.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Couleur jaune trouble, bcp de depots, forte mousse blanche. Nez malté, notes citron. Gout fort de paille, note legere citron et malt. Fin au gout de paille. Particulière pour moi, mais a gouter. Bière a deguster avec fromage et charcuterie de montagne.

freretoc (865) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur trouble blonde très mousseuse peu d’effervescence, en bouche grosse attaque sur le fumé qui se transforme sur la bouse de vache et le caca de bébé, immonde ! Elle devait être infecté c’est pas possible autrement, les 2 bouteilles étaient aussi dégueulasses

ST247 (406) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours cloudy yellow with creamy white foam. Aroma is a bit fruity and hoppy. Taste fruity and smokey. Medium carbonation (watch out when opening). Dry aftertaste.

ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy light yellow/gold with a small head. The smell has a touch of sourness to it, spice similar to a saison along with some fruitiness. The taste is again more in the vain of a saison... spicy, fruity ending dry. Light in body with active, fine carbonation. Interesting stuff.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2014
Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing! The beer is slightly sour in the nose. It starts highly carbonated, a bit like bubblegum. More like a Belgian Saison. The mainpart is slightly sour, a bit fruity, slightly malty and only very little bitter. Funky. The aftertaste is long, a bit sweeter, very smooth. Just like a Saison.
--> Nice brew! --> 12/13/12/12

SimplySike (965) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
33cl. Bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma citrus, malts. Taste bittersweet. Mouthfeel thin. It's a beer but taste and aroma could be more. It's a bit flat.
