HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JUN 16, 2013
2013. 750ml BROWN bottle corked and caged served in a Tank 7 tulip. Poured a hazy light gold with two fingers of tight bubbled head. Yeast aroma to start, not in a Belgian spicy way. Hops came through in the aroma later. Light bodied, dry and crisp with a bit of a hop bite. Some citrus. Very drinkable.

guzgorog (477) - FRANCE - AUG 19, 2015
Cuvée 2014 bue en 2015. Blonde légèrement orangée, trouble, haute mousse blanche très persistante. Nez lévuré typique de la saison et houblons herbeux. Bouche assez amère, levure, houblon côté floral et herbeux, quelques esthers. Très bonne carbo, corps aérien, très bonne longeur. Superbe saison, je regrette de ne pas en avoir une autre sous la main ...

Bullit (4218) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
Tap @ Kafe Belgie. Hazy light golden coloured, thin white head. Nose is yeasty, sour, lemonade. Flavour is sour, fruity, slightly yeasty. Overall quite sour, not sure if this was intended. Dont get much of the dryhopped part, due to the sourness. Not too bad, but quite weird.

llucmaduell (51) - barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
A big surprise. I liked beer. Fresh, powerful, with a point of imbalance thank you very much. Maybe a little too much gas, but also a persistent foam amazing. A bitter taste at the end of the mouth, persistent and very nice. A beer for summer and retain repeat.

lownote (323) - USA - AUG 16, 2015
Infected? At jester king. Smells like a complex saison with tart. Really dry. What a theme. Slightly tart. A little spicy. I could drink a bunch of this but it’s not mind blowing. Pours a bit cloudy with lots of head.

The flavor was dry, bitter, perfumey, chalky, musty and had a touch of black pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Turtles (593) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
375ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, fluffy, big white head, leaves little lacing. Fresh citrus hoppy aroma, yeast, apple. Fairly high carbonated gives a fizzy mouthfeel. The taste is grassy, cloves, citrus, pepper and sweet malt.

willisread (917) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya (2015 version). Pours a hazy gold with a huge rocky, white head. Wonderful nose of white grapefruit, lemon and pear with that classic duPont yeast character melding well. Wonderful combination of sweet, bitter, spicy and peppery on the palate. Super complex. Continues to shift as it warms as well too. Finish starts off fruity then leaves a nice lingering bitter and spicy finish.
