JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, - OCT 7, 2012
Draught, Randallized version Huge dense & white head, rings of lace; hazy yellow-orange beer. Sharp EU hops’ nose, even if they might be actually Cascade. The spiciness of the yeast comes out in force. Sharpish sweet-bittersh, spicy notes, even leafy. Very dry finish. Light to medium bodied, feels very carbonated, nearly over-. The USA hops might come out more in force, then it might even be called IPA. Still, far from bad, appetizing.

mathieuc (2485) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
Lot 83 bottle from Bier Cellar in Portland, ME. Pours a fairly clear tarnished gold with a medium white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of candi sugar, spices and some fruits. Dry-hopped, you say? Taste is of burnt sugar, peppery alcohol, fruits and feels belgian enough... Awkward and uncontrolled esters, though. Moderately high bitterness and sugar. Eh, not that good really. Where is that dryhop? Slight burning alcohol sensation. Body is light, carbonation high and lightly stingy. Disjointed to say the least, I do get some of the dryhop and it is not nearly enough to make this beer interesting. This recipe is not one for the history books I would say...

77ships (6195) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
330 ml. bottle sampled. Purchased @ Willems & Zoon. BBF JUL2016. Sparkling lightly hazy golden, creamy small bubbles white head. Nose is mineral, lightly watery, wet paper, lightly metallic,… High carbonation – too much. Taste is odd insecticide, wet paper, mineral, watery, big esters, overly fizzy, tad lingering chemical, floral, wild flowers (not in a good way) finish, pepper, touch washing powder. Meh this one fell short in quite a few way. Not too crazy about the profile & it is far too carbonated, mineral, odd choice of hops etc.
