BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2013
Clear yellow blond colored beer. Slightly overcarbonated but not gushing. I waited about ten minutes before I tasted it. Malty nose with notes of fruit. Fizzy malty flavor. Mildly bitter and dry aftertaste.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle poured a cloudy lemon custard with a small white fluffy head and minimal lacing. Aroma inclues floral notes, toast, hay, earthy yeast, and a hint of citrus. Taste is barley and subtle citrus upfront followed by cereal and slight yeast funk leading to a dry finish. Earthy and barley flavors linger.

JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2013
Very heftily carbonated golden-orange beer with a huge, fluffy, rather explosive off-white head. Herbal, fine hoppy, and other interesting aromas with something that is vaguely reminiscent of vanilla icecream. Quite bitter (concentrated in the head), serious hopload. Yet there’s more here: as a fine, just-not-sourish "citrusness", and a background that clearly spells wheat (OK, spelt), other grain and even wholemeal. Very balanced, and pretty complex, yet affirming "easy drinking" all over. Very carbonated, on the edge of fizzy, light to medium bodied. Actually d*mn good, I’m impressed! HtD ought to ask Brian over more often...

Hazy blond coloured beer with small white head and lots of carbonation. Herby spicy aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter spicy herby dry.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 27, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma of light fruits, some nice barnyard funk, mint, some earthy spices and lemon. Taste is fruity and spicy upfront with some caramel and sweet bread flavor. A touch of funkiness and citrus round things out. Medium to light body with high carbonation.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Honey gold. Ornately lathery foam cakes the glass with beautiful white lace. Exuberantly rustic aromatics of plasticlike phenolics, cobwebs, white pepper, lemon zest, grassy-herbal hops, plaster, mint, mild gum. Hint of pear and lots of alcohol. Soft, expansive carbonation. Brisk, dry and explosively phenolic with an ensuing surge of alcoholic potency. Semi-slick with an apple-like chamomile quality that gives way to a cakey fullness reminiscent of lightly frosted vanilla cake. Dries out quickly, however, as the exquisitely layered hoppiness illuminates the clean attenuation, which showcases an obligatory balance between succulence and dryness. Delightfully dusty yeast continually draws you in for another sip as it charms and allures with its rustic cobweb character and plentitude of idiosyncrasies which run the gamut from gum to white pepper and plaster. Mild lemony twang also greatly augments drinkability. Finishes peppy in its hoppy dryness which contributes a grassy sharpness and appetizing peppery notes. Drinking this immediately brings to mind Blaugies Saison d’Épeautre, which is a huge compliment considering it might just be my favorite yeast out there. Might be just a tad sharp with alcohol, and a tab slippery, but it’s fantastically dusty, rustic, and otherwise clean, just the way saison ought to be. But the $8 per 375mL price tag means I won’t be stashing this in the basement.

sonnycheeba (3779) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber with thick, frothy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is lemon, biscuit and cookie malt, grassy hops, herbs, pineapple, honey, and barnyard notes. Flavor is citrus fruit esters, herbs, citrus and grassy hops, and light sweet malts; dry, light citrus finish. Medium body and high carbonation.

ddemmingjr (723) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle: pours cloudy pale golden, bubbly white head. Funk, barnyard,smoke, roasty, hay, apricot, lemon and esters on the nose. Wheat, esters, pale malts, woody notes and an interesting cereal component that helps dry out the finish. This grew on me and is quite light bodied and drinkable.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some caramel and grainy malts, plus a little bit of floral hops. Flavor the same, with an interesting mix of malts to go with the spiciness of the yeast. Average to smooth texture. An interesting beer.
