Garrold (3329) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
750ml bottle from Mig’s Wines, Brussels. Cloudy, orange gold. Big, rocky, thick, bubbly, lasting, creamy white head. Looks just about perfect. Nose has barley sugar sweets. Custard malts. Flora. Taste is buttery, grainy sweet. Light bitter. Soft, foamy, smooth palate. Finishes a tad sweet, with minimal bitterness. Smells good. Looks great. A bit sweet. But £2.60 a bottle!

artyom (824) - Osijek, CROATIA - JAN 30, 2016
0.25l bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is spicy with coriander, yeast, sugar, pear and other fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Medium body. Overall it’s good beer, little bit on the sweet side.

Idiosynkrasie (5543) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2016
250ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity and spicy yeasty aroma, notes of apricot, peach, orange, mandarine, a touch of white pepper and bay leaf, mustard seed, some citrusy hop reinforces the orange and mandarine flavours. Taste is moderately sweet malty fruity, minimally tart and spicy, notes of apricot and peach, some mandarine and orange, a touch of brine and mustard seed, bay leaf; creamy palate, slightly prickling but non-disturbing carbonation, appropriately regulated to prevent stickiness without depletion of tastiness. Spicy Saison with sweetish, sirupy backing.

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 9, 2016
Aroma dominated by candy, syrup sweetness with some flowery, farmhouse like yeast notes, weak overall. Pours sunrise yellow to light amber with frothy white cap, some lasing too. Taste is sweetish with some tiny background bitter, light dry finish, floury a bit. More mild and at some degree complex than previous post. But also, not a good sample of style.

The_Osprey (4854) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - Bottle share at Moeder Lambic as ’Dupont Moinette Biologique’, 7.5%. Hazy orange, opaque, very big foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is musty, honey, papery, spice. Decent. Body is light, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is biscuity, light sugars, some honey, yeasty, dry finish with some booze. Nice beer. A bit fizzy for my liking. It’s so cheap to pick this up in the shops in Belgium. Quite the bargain.

Vells (1241) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 14, 2015
Bit interesting for Belgian strong, but enjoyable. Decent maltiness with some spices, light wheaty, bit citrus, bit candy, some tropical fruitiness. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness, well balanced. Need to grab some more

puboflyons (2783) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2015
From the corked, caged 750 ml green bottle. 2014 batch. Yellow-peach colored pour with a tremendous white foamy head. The aroma has a kind of toasted bread and tropical fruit or orange character. Belgian yeast esters also in the aroma. Light body. Same bready and fruity flavor with a modest bitterness at the end.
