25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. All ratings so far in French, cool. Je suis désole que je va arrêter cette tradition et va commencer en Anglais. Bright amber, orange with a big, creamy, slight off-white CML head. Huge bitter orange peel, nose, light caramel, bitter EU grass hops, light pine resin, very floral, hay, very long bitter grass finish, light medicinal, caramel,… mix of EU & USA hops it seems. Taste is very bitter floral, herbal, huge, huge grass, brutal BE hops, hardcore, reminds me a bit of very fresh De Ranke Hop Harvest 2012, light caramel, pine, slightly medicinal, touch plastic, overkill BE hops in a very fun way, light orange peel, very fresh,… Body is lightly oily, sharp carb. Apparently Mosaic, the new USA hop, hype, not really getting this one fully, still not over Sorachi Ace.

Jerre (2672) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2013
Taste this @ Namur beerfest on 13.07.’13 from tap. Light hazy darkgolden to orange color, with a creamy darkwhite head. Aroma: some malts, fruits, peaches, hops. Medium body. Taste: malts, fruitssome citrus, nice bitter hops, bit sweetness. Very good dry and bitter finish. Refreshing in this wether.

Vignale (2057) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Äppeljuicefärgad, klar om inte bottenstasen får följa med, lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Stor citrusdoft plus saisonjästens örtiga jordighet. Lätt oljig, örtig, fruktig och blommig, rejäl gul citrusbeska som ligger kvar länge i eftersmaken. Nu är jag ju väldigt svag för denna typ av öl. Men rejäl, men ändå väl avvägt humlad saison av Ranke. Det kan inte bli fel.

Swaroga (1340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2014
33cl bottle. OCZY : piwo jest delikatnie mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym. Kolor trochę wpada w jasny brąz. Piana jest spora o kolorze brudnej bieli. NOS : świeże zapachy twarogu, cytrusów, ciasta i siana. USTA : jest oleiste i mocno gazowane. Po kilku łykach smak dominuje głęboka i pikantna gorycz. Piwo jest delikatnie słodkie na początku, staje się wytrawne zaraz przed tym jak uderzy gorzkość. Ogólnie można by porównać do malutkiego herbatnika zagryzionego wielkim grejpfrutem. Posmak jest cierpki i gorzki. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest całkowicie w moim guście. Wytrawne i gorzkie to moje ulubione połączenia dla perfekcyjnego orzeźwienia. Jest to saison, pomimo użycia amerykańskiego chmielu, który nie został zrujnowany przez przesadne cytrusowe aromaty rodem z USA. Naprawdę świetne piwo. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 9/10

Hophopper (12) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2014
Amber with a creamy off white foam. Aroma of caramel malt, apricot, peach, US hops. Medium body with good carbonation. Malty taste with fruitiness and little sweetness. Excellent bitterness. Drunk cold, it’s an excellent quencher. Fantastic session ale!

Bouteille de 33 cl. Robe orange claire livrant un col mince et léger. En bouche, elle libère des saveurs de céréales grillées mêlées à des senteurs aromatiques et fleuries du Mozaïc qui laisse un amertume subtile (à la fois présente sans être envahissante) en finale. Ouverte, elle s’adoucit grâce aux céréales offrant un douce rondeur en finale. ------- Ma 1re dégustation était différente : la bière à jailli lorsque j’ai ouvert la bouteille. J’ai goûté un bière à l’amertume plus prépondérante et au goût aigrelet plus prononcé. J’ai moins senti les céréales grillée et la rondeur en final, presque inexistante. Je pense que cette bière-là avait "Geuzé". Ça m’est arrivé une fois avec une Noire de Dottignies. Et ce n’est pas mal non plus! On y revient...

Bottle. Slightly hazy deep gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite interesting, nice bready malty aroma with a really fruity and grassy hop aroma, peaches and hay, some black pepper as well. Taste is malty, light honey, same combination of peach and hay, spicy, dry finish. Palate is light, dry, with medium carbonation. Nice flavorful beer.

21/VI/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 6/IV/18 (2013-572)

Clear deep orange beer, big creamy yellowish head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, some pineapple, bit malty, toast. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus first, then pretty fruity, pineapple, herbal, grassy bitter hops, soft sweet malty base. Aftertaste: citrus, bit spicy, bitter hops, some toast, bitter dry ending. Complex yet very easy drinkable! Love it!
