Bontus (631) - 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.

Pours a hazy orangey gold color with thick white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Aroma is a mix of funky, musty, fruity elements that doesn’t sit that well with me. Flavor starts malty and sour like a very green apple or lemon, then a musty grain element comes to the front, with mild hops bitterness and an almost vinegary sourness. The finish is malty and bitter. I love Belgian and Belgian-style beers, but this one I’m in no hurry to drink ever again. I’ll spend my dollars on something I like much better next time.

VincentKabel (199) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
Hazy yellow coloured beer. Medium head, medium carbonation. Really fruity in the aroma. Fruitiness in the taste as well, but it isn’t turning too sweet. Actually you have a slight sourness (don’t really like sour beer, but this isn’t ruining this beer actually giving it more richness). Little spicey, citrus fruitiness. A very nice beer, really refreshing, leaves you wanting more.

martijnniehof (15) - ISLE OF MAN - AUG 25, 2014
Ik weet niet wat er door de brouwer heen ging toen hij dit bier aan de wereld schonk, maar het zal me niet verbazen als het gierende diaree was. Want dit lijkt een haastklusje. Gelukkig was daar de marketingafdeling die er een mooi verhaal bij wist te verzinnen.

wvhoran (209) - Tasmania, - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Hazy pale blonde colour with a large white head. The aroma is vague and lemon-ish with yeast. Sterile. Sweet, kind of fresh, very dry. Average.

allmyvinyl (3193) - 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

poech73 (184) - 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 (1107) - 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.
