Alengrin (4255) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
The new name of their Straffen Toeback but essentially the same thing. A ’quattro’, as they call it themselves, with a sticky, creamy head and clear orange blond colour. Aroma of grassy and resinous hops, grapefruit, orange peel, honey, rosewater; subdued fruity taste with citrus freshness, bitter honeyish malts and a powerfully hopped, long, dry finish. Almost an IPA in style - but not quite there yet.

mjik83 (1306) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
33cl flesje via 8 Zaligheden, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 9% Uitgeschonken in La Trappe glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig met mooie witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: bitter en hoppig met een zoete nasmaak, granig. Conclusie: iets te zoet wellicht, maar geen verkeerd bier wederom van de Scheldebrouwerij. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VincentKabel (263) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
A strong ale it is. It maskes the high alcohol percentage very well and has a taste of spices, nuts and some dried fruits, but all very well balanced. No strange aftertastes. Slightly roasted finish.

goozen (3731) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Tap at Botermarkt Bierfestival, Haarlem: Clear golden colored brew with an moderate sweet bitter tast. Might be inspired by "Duvel", this one is more sweet and less spicy.

Maarten1993 (849) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Drank with Masum in Cafe Kandinsky 14-7-2014. Beer is copper/golden colored. Very clear beer, nice. However, the taste is nothing special. Not rich. Not bad, but also not impressive.

Lele (370) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 10, 2014
Ottima birra. Dal colore biondo leggermente ambrato e dalla schiuma generosa. Al naso presenta soprattutto note di floreale ed erbaceo, ma anche una specie di affumicato molto piacevole. In bocca il risultato è abbastanza inaspettato. Si percepisce immediatamente il floreale (come si sentiva al naso), ma questo è accompagnato un istante dopo dal fruttato e da note mielose. Il sorso chiude con un inaspettato amaro che permane nel retrogusto (abbastanza persistente) e che invita ad una nuova bevuta. Da abbinare con piatti abbastanza corposi e formaggi forti, come il gorgonzola.

Maakun (3088) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Clear golden with amber hue and small off-white head. Taste is lots of Belgian yeast, cloves, dried fruits, lots of spices with some herbal and flowery bitterness. Medium sweet malts with a light roasted touch. Medium bodied. Quite nice strong ale.
