durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Draft from Proletariat in NYC. I was going to rate this, and then I read 3fourths’ rating and thought, "Why bother?" I quote, abbreviated: "hazed golden wheat body with a fine white head and lasting retention. very much nailing the Belgian farmhouse yeast character in the nose: all around seems quite soft and delicate but very well integrated: lemon oil and pith, soap, banana, peach skin esters, moderate peppercorn spice with a creamed wheat and uncooked dough yeast note that seems to be the one component that’s a little too present. the aroma hops seem similar to those in the Thiriez Blonde and De Ranke XX (though I haven’t had a bottle of that this year, it’s sitting in the fridge): musty, a bit goaty, sharply green, and almost smelling like the skunk of ultraviolet light contamination, but not quite. deliciously dry with a medium body and soft and creamy natural carbonation; takes an acidic turn across the middle with crystalline sugar, must, white pepper and Belgian pale malt toast. lush carbonation releases the acids and esters well to wash the palate in the finish."

MarcoGori (10) - ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
La mia preferita, e forse la birra più sottovalutata che mi sia mai capitato di bere. Belga di ispirazione ma più amara. Si sposa praticamente con tutto, aperitivi, pizza e carne.
