EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, - JUL 11, 2013
Blonde dorée opaque, forte effervescence (mais seulement de visu), mousse abondante et persistante. Bon équilibre malt-houblon en attaque, l’amertume se dévoilant franchement par la suite. Un rien épicée, légères notes citronnées, un peu trop courte.

Zlotta (2158) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Prik & Tik Baelus’, best before July 2018 (apparently a very fresh bottle). Due to the warnings here and on the front label, I opened the cap very cautiously, and after the slightest bit of opening, the foam ran out of the bottle. Would have been a massive gusher I suppose, but I managed to pour more or less a full glass by that. Hazy, golden yellow with a massive, fluffy, almost stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, herbal-spicy aroma of lime, lychee, fresh grass, some clove and Belgian yeast. Slightly sweetish, yeasty-spicy, moderately fruity and quite herbal-spicy taste of banana, Belgian candy, some butter, clove, lime, grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite dry-grassy and yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. The hop flavours are really nice, but the strong yeast aroma lets it appear a bit immature. - I think it’s really questionable to produce these kind of gushers almost on purpose, probably not too many people check ratings on ratebeer before opening a bottle (or pay too much attention to the label). I wonder if the brewery has ever been sued for damages?!

ATTENTION à l’ouverture : geyser de mousse et présence d’un cône de houblon dans la bouteille (ceci expliquant sans doute cela...). Robe orangée, méga mousse crémeuse blanche. Le nez est assez typique des houblons belges et de la levure. Bouche malt léger, houblon herbeux et terreux, levure belge. Forte carbo, longueur moyenne. Rien de vraiment spécial pour cette blonde belge si ce n’est le cône de houblon dans la bouteille qui est une idée marrante ... sauf pour ceux qui font le ménage et la lessive !!!

24/08/2016 @home - 33 cl bottle from a gift. Hazy light yellow with huge head. Small gusher because of the hopflower jumping out. Nose bitter hops, fruity, sweet malts. Taste is fresh hoos, sweet malts fruitiness, citrus, long soft bitter aftertaste.

MonsterMagnet (1184) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2016
Bottle. I was aware of its reputation so stored upright in the fridge and I had a large glass nearby. Pours rather awkward with all the foam and the hop flower stuck in the neck of the bottle. The result is a cloudy yellow/orange pour with loads of yeast chunks and a huge head. Floral, grassy aroma. Taste follows with orange peel, malts, honey. Moderate sweet and bitter, somewhat creamy, short finish. Ok, but not ok enough to warrant for all the hassle really.

33cl bottle from a trade with Douberd, many thanks! Soft Gusher! Pours hazy deep golden colour with a huge most good lasting white head. Aroma of mild bitter hops, citrus, grass. Taste of grassy and dry bitter hops, citrus, pale malt, grains, good!

Bottle. Opened warm and was a gusher. However, settles down to pleasant fresh hoppiness as promised. Pleasant. One I would buy again.

Sterk ondergewaardeerd bier, maar dit is wel de toekomst. Lekker bitter, tenminste een echt bitter bier. Bier om een avond mee af te sluiten!

vipinvelp (3831) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
Somewhat hazy golden yellow, hop bells floating in the bottle. Gusher. White lacing foam head. Hoppy aroma and bitter taste. Nice gift from Tinus. (Velp 201604)

KoNrRiI (1216) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 0.33 bottle. Very hazy, dark copper color and a small white head with a heck ton of hop buds. Aroma of hops, fermentation, yeasts, not particularly pleasant. Taste is grassy, hoppy, kind of devoid of proper character, not even properly bitter. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is long and kind of unusual too, once again hoppy but not bitter - fermentation flavors take the lead. Overall, not a savory beer - I imagine it takes a peculiar palate to enjoy this one or I simply landed a bad bottle.

Bottle. Just got it before it gushed. Gold with a puffy white head that lasts OK. There’s a big bit of the hop cone left in the bottle and a fair few floaties in the glass. Aroma of dough, vanilla, peach, bitter orange. And so it tastes. It’s fruit and dough sweet and a bit muddled - I’m sure the hop detritus didn’t help - until it gathers itself in a dry and bitter finish that has some pepper and flowers as well as citrusy hops.
