PorterPounder (6202) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark yellow with a delicate snow white head that leaves a nice filmy lacing. Lemony, grassy aroma - very fresh. Flavor has some spicy notes - saffron comes to mind. Lemon, yeast, a bit of raw cake dough. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritz. Pretty decent.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
Flaske 0,33l delt med Rune på Bierbrasserie Cambrinus i Brugge 4 Mai 11. Gylden. Lavt skum. Ekstrem tyggegummiaroma. Smaken søt fruktig bitter. Gjennomført kunstig preg. Ikke god.

drowland (6831) - Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2011
11/29/11. 11.2oz bottle... didn’t realize how often I was scrolling past this tick. Hazy orange pour with a slightly off-white head that is big, fluffy, and sticky, with plenty of lacing. The aroma is of light yeast character - slight banana and bubble gum - with fruity esters, candy sugar, and a touch of metal. Slightly sweet candy sugar flavor as well with lingering dry aspects. Reminds a but of a tripel. Could be worse.

diabel (1630) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2011
Yellow, blond body with a white creamy head. Slightly caramel aroma. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour - highly carbonated. Well balanced and medium to highly bodied.

inbirraveritas (1349) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 18, 2011
Hazy deep golden colour with a big white head, which diminishes relative quickly to a thin film. Sweet-spicy smell. Tart, citrus-fruity aroma escorted by honey and herbals underpainted by light alcohol. The medium kinded, tart and dry finish brings citrusses and peppery, warming alcohol along, which leaves a tart aftertaste behind. Nicely balanced and easy drinkable.

thomat (2525) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Pale golden with a large white head. Fruity with malty notes. Malt, fruit and sweetness. Full body with a balanced, sweet finish.

musinj6 (466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bready, doughy aroma. Pours opaque golden color with extraordinarily frothy head. Very light on the front with light sweetness, but finishes mildy bitter and a little salty. Very light body with thin texture with average carbonation. Finishes bitter and abruptly. Overall a fair beer. Not overwhelming experience.

olsvammel (4117) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle at a pub in Lier, Belgium. It poured a hazy yellow-golden liquid with a big white head. Fruity and yeasty smell with some spices. Similar taste but with a pinch of hops. Surprisingly well made, easy to drink with a dangerously high ABV that I hardly noticed.

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of yeast. Kind of a pear smell too. Taste has some musty, dusty yeast to it. Bit of a apple taste I think, kind of a red delicious flavor. Bit of bread too. Overall a fruity yeasty taste, I really like this beer! Very tasty considering the ABV. I don’t think I’d get this over another Belgian Strong Ale considering in these parts it’s fairly expensive (like 5-6 bucks per 12 oz) but it’s definitely a really good beer. 8% alcohol.
