caesar (5325) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Tap @ Tilburg. Hazy blonde color, short head. Aroma of soft spicy yeast. Doesnt feel like saison yeast actually. Flowery hops, bit spicy. Soft bitter taste, bit sweet. Not too exciting to be honest.

tderoeck (5148) - 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...

jmgreenuk (5015) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle at the March 2014 De Molen monthly tasting. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thick white head, some broken lace and a few bubbles. The aroma is yeast, light peach. The flavour is medium bitter light sour with a crisp refreshing yeast light fruit hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. An interesting beer. Nice enough to taste, but i’m note sure i’d buy it again. It doesn’t have much beer magnetism for me.

77ships (4305) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2013
Draft sample @ Brugs Bier Festival 2013 as “No Hops No Glory” aka Préaris Blond given the Randal treatment with unnamed (possibly American) fresh hops. Pours hazy golden with a creamy white head. Lots of creamy citrus USA hops, quite heavy, touch fruity & light creamy grains. Taste is lots of citrus, creamy ,light milky grains, bitter floral with some light fruity & white sugar sweetness underneath it. I have been told that if you would just run water through the same installation you would get the same flavours which seems about right. This is still a nice & refreshing hop tea of sort. Body is obviously hazy, touch lower carb.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
33cl Bottle: BBD 29 May 2014. Poured into my huge ’Judas’ glass on 5 Aug 2013 during a Belgian Tasting Evening with myself! Looked fine in the glass: bright golden body with a large head (you can really pour fast into a Judas glass) of snow white bubbles. Light nose of yeasts, hop notes and freshly cut grass. The taste was also light, delicate might be a better word. Hints of flavours rather than ’in your face’ powerful features. Slight citrus feel to the piece, with a mini grain undertone. I found it pleasant enough but it was completely overshadowed by the other Belgian brews I had around it. In short: a refreshing but weak Belgian offering, start with this, don’t have it mid-session.
