sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ Delirium, Brussels. Dorée, orangée claire, col blanc épais. Arôme, levure belge, sucré doux avec malt caramel, impressionde frutis fermentés. Bière qui donne un profile trop alcoolisé sous des notes de levure belge. Cet alcool reste trop présent un cache un peu le reste de la dégustation. Je note des pointes de fruits, abricot et pêche et autres fruits résiduels. Limite liquoreuse avec un peu de caramel et au fini une note de houblon pour l’amertume.

Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, fruitiness, some yeast and spiciness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty –lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, fruitiness and yeast, faint spiciness, alcohol. Sweetish and fruity strong ale - really nothing that makes this stand out from the crowd.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2011
Hazy straw colour underneath a voluminous fluffy white head. Waxy alcohol aromas prevalent and signature fruity banana Belgian ale yeast along with boiled vegetables. The first impression is colling and fluffy and then there’s a violent blow of alcohol and fruits. There’s a tangy tinge of citrus and bitterness that hangs around for a few minutes leaving the impression that you’ve just taken a bite out of a lemon. Not quite what I was expecting out of this bottle, but for all that, tasty enough... but I wouldn’t go back for a second - I’d be unconscious.
