sulawang (545) - British Columbia, - JUN 22, 2012
pours translucent orange with minimal head, micro CO2, a few slow-moving CO2 streams. Light malts and chamomile on the nose. Sharp sweetness (7/10) up front, transitions into honey, chamomile, juniper berries (which you have to look for), and ends with an orange peel lingering bitterness (5/10). Carbonation is tingly and mouthfeel is tingly and slightly cloying sweet. Medium complexity, med-high depth, great transitions, good carry, really good drinkability.

Gluepot (44) - CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Wheat, spices and fruit in the nose. Taste is a refreshing, fruity Belgian ale, but not overpowered by Belgian yeast. A range of fruit tastes including citrus, citrus peel, tropical fruit and ripe berries are also nicely set off by a hint of toffee. Very tasty, thirst quenching and well blended.

Benzai (6440) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Dutchdrebus. Opaque yellow color, small white head. Canít smell anything due to the hayfever goddamn. Taste malts, a bit yeasty, some hops, a bit bitter. Donít know why, maybe because I canít get the aroma good enough due to the hayfever, but Iím not too impressed. Medium body and carbonation.

laiti (4952) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
75 cl bottle @ Timo A, no freshness info
Aroma has fruity notes and soapy apricot. Flavour has some moldy tones. Also fruits, apricot and soapy tones. Refreshing, a Belgian clone well done. The moldy tones are not nice though. Gets better with yeast added.

Pours clear golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of sweet fruitness, esthery notes, orange peel, spices, bubblegum, yeast and maltiness. Taste is smooth, sweetish and yeasty with some orange peel notes, spices, berries and alcohol. Finish is sweet, sticky and malty with some yeastiness, sweet fruitness and orange peel notes.

Idiosynkrasie (3269) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy, orangey deep golden colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, fruity yeasty and slightly spicy aroma, hints of orange and orange zest, a peppery yeasty touch, herbal overtones. Taste is moderately sweet malty and fruity, surpressed by dry herbal and zesty notes, a spicy, peppery yeasty touch. Well balanced, multifaceted, but overall mild in character.

jdobbs (286) - New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Big baked banana, bready banana bread. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft and tingly. More dry finish. Nice light spicy, zesty, sweet taste. Light nice alcohol warmth, moderate bitter. Little pineapple juice. Very tasty stuff... Odd indeed, though
