jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Cloudy golden coloured body with a nice layer of sediment, a zillion bubbles rising from the bottom very quickly, all with a nice microfoamed, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of yeast, bread, barnyard notes, funk, apricots, apples and a bit of unfinished grain. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a light grassy flavour, some malt and a lot of yeast - not too much else, perhaps some sweetness from fruit. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with the flavours around the yeast, but little else. Overall, a decent beer - about what you’d expect from Hof Ten Dormal with a nice grain finish - not great, but expected. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 19-July-2013 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-December-2013.

Dobre choc mnie nie powalilo na kolana z zachwytu. Wystrzal i huk z szampanowej polowkowej butelki i gigantyczna piana ktora rosla w oczach, trzeba uwazac podczas nalewania. Kolor metny i to porzadnie z odcieniem cytryny. Posmak cytrynowo-zbozowy i nieco cieplej chlebowej nuty.

Hopswagger (197) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2013
P: Highly effervescent pale straw body with a slight haze and a massive wall if sparkling wine head. Superb retention like a mountain of snow. S: Green bottle skunk, pilsner malt, grains of paradise, black pepper, coriander, honey and delicious yeast. T/M: Raw grains, black pepper, coriander, delicious belgian yeast, grains of paradise, green apples, apricot, metal, faint bubble gum and unsalted crackers. Floral and leafy overall a really naturally rustic flavor. Silky smooth body with surprisingly timid carbonation that finishes crisp and dry. O: Great rustic balance with a subtle sweet and funk. This is super easy drinking and the yeast was balanced and complimenting. I really enjoyed this collaboration. Cheers!

Pours a hazy yellow with lots of fluffy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of Belgian funky yeast, grass, and slight lemon. Taste is a very common saison feel, funky and farm like, but well done. Bubbly mouth and a hint of burn in the gut. Nicely done, but nothing crazy.
