brekeriet (139) - - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Fruity, estery, spicy, perfume like aroma. Nicely hazy, nice bubbling from CO2, the head is quite quickly diminishing. Very good balance in taste, nice bitterness. Very nice and oily palate. Overall a very nice beer.

Arek (55) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle 0,33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland. Bursztynowe, mętnawe piwo z obfitą pianą i świeżym, cytrusowym aromatem. W smaku orzeźwiające, słodowe, lekko ziemiste i chlebowe z bardzo łagodną, cierpką goryczką na finiszu.

3fourths (8038) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 May 2013, bottle at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Hazy pale gold body with a a fine white head. Banana esters in the nose with a strange green leaf quality and a lot of phenolic bubble gum. Neutral pale malt / cracker-y flavor. Floral lemon hops with a dry and tart mouthfeel. Light body, soft malt, natural carbonation is effervescent and gives the beer vibrancy and life. Zesty, musty and quenching. Bottle might be a tad old here, and it seemed to be minimally light-struck, but at a level low enough that my sense of it was quite low.

August 2014, 33cl bottle from the brewery in Esquelbecq. Herbal green aroma with some faint rubbery notes. Yeasty aroma, musty, grassy, kind of dill and pickle-like even. Earlier in the day, Daniel Thiriez opened another bottle of this, likely from a different batch as it was absent this green rubber character, though it was greatly skunked, so the impression today is not so good. This bottle being rated is not skunked, but the nose is difficult to get into. Game-y aromatics to go with a cumin powder resemblance :/

Taboada (334) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 27, 2014
330 mml bottle tasted on 27/06/2014. Light orange colour with a little but compact white head. Aroma is intense on floral and fruity. Taste is sweet with malt and citrus flavour. More citrus on the aftertaste. Light carbonation and light to medium body. A little watered on mouth but refreshing and smooth aftertaste. Next one please!

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Dobre swieze i ekologiczne piwo. O przyjemnym swiezym aromatem. Chmiel aromatyczny. W smaku delikatne a zarazem wyraziscie swiezo chmielowe, slodowe ale nie slodkie. Bojna i spora biala piana. Zlociste ale metne i to porzadnie. Delikatne i latwe w konsumpcji piwo Bio.

JulienHuxley (3097) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with compact white head. Aroma is pleasant, light grainyness, pepper, something grassy, fresh hay. Taste is grainy, bready, sweet flavors with a pleasantly bitter finish. Palate is clean, dry, light-medium bodied with good carb. Solid little farmhouse ale, super easy drinking and more importantly still, doesn’t suck because it’s organic.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle that was about 2 years past its drink-by. Will still rate it, because it was good and interesting that way. Cloudy blonde with a nice low head. Big grapefruit nose, barnyard funkiness which certainly came with aging. Light malts as well. Tart, citrus flavors, not much hops left at all, but barnyard and some sweet bready malts. Crisp, light body. This made me think about the whole deal with BA saisons. They taste like this fresh, but with more hops. This truly is an agable beer.

Erasmus_ro (1374) - Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2013
750cl bottle. Starts to ooze out slowly as soon as you crack the cap. Pours a yellowy orange with a very large, white head. The glass is mostly head. Only a dab of beer at the bottom. The bottle is green glass so the aroma is a bit skunky, but fortunately that recedes fairly quickly. The rest is rather yeasty with quite a bit of pale malts, some spiciness and herbal aroma there as well. Taste is a lot of pale malts, quite spicy, lightly sweet, lightly sour. Quite a bit of herbal flavor on the finish. Light with decent carbonation. Good with food.

77ships (3801) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2013
Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Lightly hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Nose is huge on barn, lots of white pepper, wild herbs, almost funky, touch EU hops,… Taste is spices, barn, rustic, white pepper, slightly fruity with some spices, hay, tangy yeast and light citrus. Smooth, slightly oily, very easy to drink. Another beer which I tought was very good but has very low rating eh whatever.

Tide (1788) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle at bar. Thick amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, wheat, tart, herbs, hops and grass. Bitter finish with citrus and wheat. Very nice brew.
