jaghana (4954) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 4, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with good head and retention. Nose is lemony and astringent like. Aroma is sweet with flower notes and lemon touch, alcohol is well hidden, metallic and violette notes, very interesting. But too much yeast aroma, yes lot of phénol there, nice sweet fruity finish.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
330ml, room temperature at The Penguin. Coarsely alcoholic, cherry-accented aroma. Pours golden, sieved with mist beneath a patchy white head thinning to nowt. Overly fizzy, slightly meaty, marzipan taste not endearing itself beside the relative perfection of St Feuillien Grand Cru. Some light buttered pine trying to break out; toasted wheat, disjointed, synthetic kriek cherriness (booze). No thankyou.

cpetrone84 (1776) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a deep golden amber with a pillowy, slightly off white creamy head. The nose is light, some sweet candied sugars with a decent yeast presence, light spice with notes of lemon, vanilla, and honey. The taste is bigger and sweeter than the nose. Loads of candied sugar with sweet caramel malts. The yeast and peppery spice is dulled down and the feel is very muddled and sugary. The body is syrupy and oily, the finish is thin and has a light soapiness in it.

Yves (2614) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2011
Clear golden coloured beer with small white head and medium carbonation. Hoppy spicy aroma. Full creamy slight sparkling palate. Finish is spicy slight bitter ending dry. Easy drinkable for the high alcohol %. Misses some character.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2011
Dorée avec légère brume, col blanc épais. Arôme de levure double belge, profile houblonné fruité. Bière au palais épais, levure belge restant assez douce et vers un style abbaye, houblon style allemand avec une carbonnation active. Note houblonnée de citron mais aussi sucrée rappelant l’abricot, le tout étant fleuri. Malt pils et fin cara, alcool passe bien.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur blonde légèrement orangée, trouble, mousse moyenne de tenue moyenne. Des arômes de miels, d’épices soutenus par un cachet légèrement fleuri. Assez sucrée, elle a du corps et une carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear pale yellow color, small fully diminishing white head. Smell is lightly malty, lightly sweet. Taste light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Medium carbo and body. Nothing too exiting, but nothing wrong either.

Parket (578) - Bruges, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2011
bottle in bruges, orange/golden colour with nice foamy white head. Smell: fruity and malty notes, just like the taste. Not a spectacular beer but I like it.

olsvammel (4719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle at Le Poechenkelder (or how you spell it :P) in Brussels. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a white head. Fruity and yeasty with a lean and smooth mouthfeel. A very nice beer with a pleasant flavour.
