BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very hazy, nearly milky golden hued body with a massive head, great lace and very sound retention. Aromas are spicy, dried pineapple, alcohol, sticky, dry esters, thistle, stone fruit, hoppy. Lots of CO2 in the nose. Flavors are dry, white wine, medium bitter, herbal, hoppy, thistle, grainy, woody, rustic, earthy and bone dry. Some floral and tropical fruit hop character. Dry and very drinkable despite the ABV. Low citrus, but quite lemony as it warms. Lingering peppery phenol. Very lively bubbles, dry, low bodied, warming. Fusel alcohols become stronger as it warms.

Gyllene genomskinlig smågrus bärnsten med vitt huve. Kryddigt, söt, jästig, fruktig doft. Typiskt Belgo doft. Fräsch, fin lagom sötma & malt. vinigummi godisar & annat gott & blandat. Lite hoppig humle. Lätt kropp. Enkel fin små besk söt eftersmak. Balanserad öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rami_pl (341) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 30, 2015
z kranu w Czeskiej Baszcie. Bardzo ladna, wysoka, powoli sie redukujaca, ladnie brudzaca szklo piana. Samo piwo metne, jasne. Aromaty najpierw glownie cytrusowe czy moze raczej cytrynowe, pozniej - po lekkim ogrzaniu sie - pojawila sie nuta kwiatowa i przede wszystkim fajnie wyczuwalne belgijskie nuty stajenne. Pojawiaja sie tez krakersowo-ciastowe nuty. Smak wyjatkowo rzeski, kwaskowaty (cytryna, brzoskwinia), znow po poczekaniu, lekkim ogrzaniu duzo slodsze, wyczuwalna dajaca cialo slodowa baza. caly czas obecne drozdze. Inne, niz pite przeze mnie mocne jasne belgi czy grand cru, glownie przez przesuniecie w kwaskowata, cytrynowa strone, fajnie niestandardowe, smaczne, dobre i robiace wrazenie

Nuffield (3767) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2015
This started promisingly with a good aroma and nice alcohol driven notes but gave way to a more ambivalent flavor, grassy, lightly bitter (hopier than I like in this style), some yeast. Ok. Bottle.

Bottled. gold colored. Lots of alcohol in the flavor and aroma. Thin palate, some flavor of raw meat, pepper, and light spices. there are some hops here. Very dry, it reminds me of dry tripel.
