BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
33cl Bottle: best before 05 July 2013, poured into a ’Duvel’ glass on 03 Aug 2012. Looked fine: huge white head of large bubbles, with a golden (slight haze from the sediment) body. Hoppy, resinous smell, not much else to report. The hops rule the taste as well as the aromas, more citrusy in the mouth than the nose though. I also found it to be a bit over carbonated: It was fizzy actually. Expected more from this brew: 8% ABV also too obvious in the mouthfeel, could only drink one of these in a session (I only had one bottle to taste anyway). One dimensional and uninteresting.

Bottle (33 cl) at Rest. le Reubens, Brussels. Shady golden, meidum white head. Malty aroma with some marzipan, and touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Semi dry, low to medium bitterness.

jaghana (3754) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 20, 2012
bottle 33cl, a light cloudy yellow beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is sweet like and a bit spicy. Aroma is on peppery hops associated with agrume astringency medium sweet to low. Not much complexity, bitter with orange peel touch, citrus, a bit boring.
