Bontus (627) - Flanders, - JUN 23, 2012
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

allmyvinyl (3097) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy pale yellow, thin white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, light spice, bread. Taste brings a citrus note, more yeasty zing, and a light sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, bit thin at the end. Not bad.

Een van de minst lekkere bieren dat ik ooit gedronken heb, ik heb moeite gehad om alles binnen te krijgen

MonsterMagnet (179) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle, bb 6-2015. Pours straw like hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma: dough, dust, spicy, glue. Taste: lime, dough, wheat, green apples, spices, banana, caramel, hints of honey. Medium carbonation, medium body. Pretty short but refreshing slightly sour finish. Interesting yeasty beer.

poech73 (178) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
Mélange de céréales présentant un nez assez citronné avec du sucre et de la levure et un houblon fleuri. En bouche c’est plutôt la déception: la gorgée est doucereuse à cause de l’association de l’avoine et du sarrasin. Le maltage, plutôt biscuité, quitte le gosier en laissant un petite aigeur, légèrement vinaigré comme s’il y avait eu des brett dans celle-là. C’est dommage parce que je garde un palais assez neutre. Plutôt quelconque.

degbert (1099) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with just a touch of apple green. Head is high, firm, and fine-grained with lace and a lot of body to it. Nose is very interesting; it’s got a touch of wit phenol, lemon, and spice, but then there’s an aged beer aroma to it almost like a biere de garde, a dusty, closed-room paper and book smell that I find really pleasant. Butterscotch sweetness at the front of the tongue, and then that aged, dusty flavor comes in; it reminds me of a manzanilla sherry, with the same nutty, tree fruit complexity. The finish is long and multi-faceted. This is a really cool beer.

MarcoDL (2136) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
Nice beer. Hazy and cloudy, with a fruity aroma. Taste of fruity yeast, wheat, grassy aroma hops and some banana.

BeerViking (2427) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Hazy gold with a fast-settling head, lightly tart nose with lemon and banana carries through into the body, dry-bitter with spice and banana, light breadiness, a touch of crisp hoppy tartness.

DrSilverworm (6286) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Taste from an 11.2oz bottle. Hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Smooth and easy-drinking. Nice texture. Light bitter. Good zest. Light sweet, kind of spicy. Some orange citrus. Light hint of banana. Belgian type fruitiness, and an interesting graininess in the finish. Solid, interesting stuff to try.

b3shine (5319) - Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a somewhat cloudy maize with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells like Belgianyeast, orange, and a touch of clove. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but forgettable.
