2013-02-27, bottle, bb Oct 2013, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy blond color with generous compact head and sticky lace. Aroma of fruity hops and spicy yeast, mild. Dry mouthfeel, soft, well carbonated; the malt flavor is well spicy; correctly bitter, but without clear hop qualities; long final, Belgian style, a bit sandy.
Good beer, well brewed, should have been drunk earlier.

2012-11-20, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 8-4-7-4-15=38
Hazy deep blond color with generous creamy head. Nice aroma, spicy (coriander) with hints of oranges, pine and frankincense. The mouthfeel is quite dry; malt flavor, with nice spicy profile, strong bitterness, but no much fruity presence.
Good.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2012
Draught Huge, very fine & dense off-white head over clear metallic golden beer; rings of lace. Aromatic hops, faint but pleasing, with rosewater, grapes and slightly (luxury)soapy. Sweet pale malts and piquant, nearly peppery hops. Superb combination, but unfortunatley slightly clashing, rather than blending. Banana ester, with sweetness smothered by the hopbitterness. Quite slick, even film-y. Light to medium bodied. Alcohol not heating, but seems quite present, much more than expected for such a beer. I’m going to shock the Walloon fanatics, but I think Toccalmatto must have had a beneficial influence;..

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
75 cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Antoine. Couleur dorée présentant un léger trouble, col blanc épais. Arôme est fruité et herbacé sur un houblon bien fleuri et fruité ajoutant une touche agréable à cette saison. En ouche, profile grains sur un palais restant sec et houblonné du Green Bullet qui ajoute également une pointe d’épice se mariant bien avec la levure. Amertume est modérée centrée plus vers le citron, en retrait l’ajout du motueka confère un fini sec rappelant le houblon Saaz qui prend bien avec ce style de bière. Une saison agréable qui profite du rajouts de deux houblons nouveaux pour ce style.
