Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2012
Hazy, pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of sweets (zuurtjes), yeast, wheat and grain. Light sweet flavour. light bitter touches. Rather sticky mouthfeel, sweet sticky finish with light sour notes.
Not the best beer by Hof Ten Dormaal imho, but interesting as a spelt beer experiment.
(From bottle @ ZBF ’12)

Tap. No head, with a slightly hazy light orange yellow. By grainy, grassy, citric, and light fruits. Some acidity up front and in the finish, bubblegum notes which are a bit odd. Some grains and light fruit sweetness. Lighter body with more muted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours a bright hazy gold with a large and thick white head that settles down into a nice foam. Nose of grain, lemons, straw, and some slight soapy/metallic notes sort of like an old dishcloth. Wondering if my glass was dirty. Some caraway seed-like notes. Tastes lightly bitter. Pleasantly dry palate.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 9, 2012
Green bottle (lots of pressure behind the cork). Pours with a hazed golden yellow hue with a very massive white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are strongly farmhouse, musty, aggressive phenols, pepper, mild clove, sandalwood, earthy, spicy hops, with light but sharp esters. Smells authentically belgian. Spicy, thistle, hops. Light citric acidity. Flavors show mild malt sweetness, spicy, hops, some tart yeast, nettles, phenols, herbal hop notes, quite dry with mild esters. Chestnuts. Pretty straight forward beer. Very lively bubbles, mildly tart and bone dry.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle, and at $5.99 I believe the cheapest bottle I’ve ever had with a cork. Pours a deep, deep hazy orange body with nice thick white lacing. Aroma is funky, tea, lightly earthy, and weird baby food. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth with notes of tea, bitter grass, floral, and a bit earthy funk. Nice.
