MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
(bottle, 37.5cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big but diminishing frothy white head. Yeasty malty and wheaty aroma with notes of brioche, accompanied by slightly vinous fruity notes of citrus, grapes and pears. Moderately sweet and delicately sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a spritzy carbonation. A tad slim malt character with slightly sour wheaty and citric notes, backed by Belgian yeasty spices; a bit slim and sour-tart finish with notes of citrus, grapes and a delicately herbal hoppy touch. Okay, smells like Crémant but tastes like Prosecco frizzante. 01.III.14

zach8270 (3435) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2014
(bottle - 375 ml) Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Strange aroma that’s not really inviting. Kind of dank and diapery. Flavor completely makes up for it however. Good dry yeast and tart notes with a sour and funky finish. Good carbonation.

Vignale (2034) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Korken går av med rejäl smäll. Gyllengul, poröst vitt skum, lätt disig. Mycket brett i doften plus citrus, örter och saisonjäst. Lätt kropp, lite vass munkänsla med mycket småbubblor, torr, örtig, jordig, citrus, örtig beska med inslag av citruszest. En bra saison med brett utan några fel. Riktigt trevlig.

Weird beer, with a very herbal and grassy taste. Quite bitter as well, I liked it.

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2014
375ml bottle - $6.98 at Sherlock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, bright yellow body with a stiff, expanding, white head that never quite fizzles out.

Smell: Yeast, earthy nose, with spicy, herbal, cracked, gently toasted grain tones, like spice and grains discarded in a basement with a thin drip of fruit and citrus juice.

Taste: Rustic, coarse yet smooth grains layered with tastes of biscuits, sourdough, sliced pear, light banana, white pepper, and a coating of musty, earthy yeast. Restrained sweetness. Floral, clove-dosed citrus juice. Minerally. Spicy, dry, effervescent finish with a hint of white grapeskin.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well-carbonated.

Overall: A yeast quaffer if there ever was one!

PotjeBier (1652) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Tap @ Beer Temple. Clear golden blonde color. White, sticky head. Aroma’s: grassy hops, grain, sour fruit. Retronasal there’s pepper & caramel additionally. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, ever so slightly tart. Fairly light bodied (from the spelt?). Finishes with a yeasty and rather bitter flavor. a bit more body would have done it good, but another nice farmhouse beer from Hof ter Dormaal (do they use Dupont yeast?)

OPIE788 (333) - Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color with a bunch of sediment. Aroma is funky malt. Lots of malt, yeast and lemon zest.

suprchunk (2173) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Clear golden colored pour with some yeast chunks. Big white head that is slow to fall. Tons of lacing. Slight light-struck aroma with malt and yeast notes, with lemon. Taste is a refreshing lemon zest and malt. Dry finish, yet a sweet presence. Nice beer.

Marheb (2018) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Une bouteille skunké avec des relents métalliques qui fini par s’estomper avec l’effort du temps. Aucun aspect de cette bière ne m’impressionne, foin mouillé, sucres résiduels abandonnés et dépourvu d’une acidité réparatrice. Le liquide prend forme au fur et à mesure et un vent plus herbacé se lève pour rendre l’expérience à peine acceptable. Ça devient de plus en plus une certitude, Stllwater est meilleur pour les autres.

Borresteijn (4636) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, spicy, light funky, hint of lemon. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, bread, spice, tiny hint of funky tartness, lemon, firm dry bitter finish. Light-bodied. OK, sweet-bitter is a bit out of balance imho.
