JorisPPattyn (9056) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2012
Huge, whipped-cream - like head, quite even and stable over (cold)hazed yellow- to orange-golden beer. Very slightly oppressive, grains- and (lightly toasted) breadnose. Later garden herbs and (more than) probably white candi sugar. Quite outspoken hoppy flavour, explosively surprising as this stands perpendicular on the nose. Bitter as it is, it is a quite welcome surprise, and satisfying. Quite smooth (terrible term, I know), creamy and yet well-carbonated feel; medium bodied; quite dry finish. Pretty darn’ good!

kermis (9056) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Draft at BBF ’15. Pours nearly clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grassy and weedy hops, yeast, biscuity malt and caramel. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Highly bitter lemon pith, grass, wood oil astringency, bitter green leaves with a slightly unclean / laundry soap yeast presence. Basil and marijuana green leaf / herbal aroma, some alcohol noticed. Medium body, low carbonation, low sweetness (apparently), high bitterness. Mashed apple and pear esters seem to amplify this greenness. Bracing bittering in a lengthy finish becomes unenjoyable due to the astringent wood oil character. That said, it’s easy to just sip and not think about and it comes across as a decent beer then. But for a Belgian-made saison / hoppy golden ale? Doesn’t fit where I want it to.

KyotoLefty (8746) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Spicy, tart nose, grapefruit, lemon, some honey, yeasty spice. Deep gold with orange and a huge head. Crisp, hoppy flavor, bread, some biscuit and honey, grass, citrus, very bitter. Great. Reminds me of XX Bitter.

sebletitje (8615) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 29/05/2014, merci à Mike pour la bouteille. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux.3 Arôme est bien houblonné frais et fleuri avec une pointe citronnée et tropicale. Palais fruité rappelant la papaye et pamplemousse laissant des notes agréable de houblon et amertume. Le tout sur ce profile bien belge, sec en bouche avec une belle effervescence et au fini un malt léger tendant vers le pâle.

tderoeck (7578) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2012
10/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 25/V/14 (2012-708)

Clear dark blond to light orange beer, big creamy off-white to light yellow head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, dried fruits, little sugary, sweet malts, bit dusty, quite spicy, cinnamon, dried ginger, touch of ripe banana. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: malty start, cookie dough, some citrus, grassy bitter hops, spices. Aftertaste: fruity notes, some grains and sweet malts, grassy bitterness, dry and pretty bitter ending, but making you want to have another sip. Well done...
