Bottle pour at Jimmy's 43 battle of the Belgian event. Tan color with a yeasty bready flavor. Kind of like a bier de garde

Steve_0 (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle at my parents with my dad. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Husky, straw, chalky, grassy, some grain, honey, and minerals in the aroma. Taste is grassy, doughy, bready, spicy hoppy, light pepper, herbs, minerals, and caramel with a dry finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not too bad.

gegwilson (2243) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle from Calais Vins. Pours blond with a frothy white head. The taste is biter with citrus and buttery undertones. A moderate amount of spice too. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Davros (2448) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours amber with a large white head. Nose shows Belgian yeast, spicy phenols, noble hops with spicy and floral notes, honey and light sweet bready malt. Similar flavours. Novle hops, spicy Belgian notes, light candi characters and some bready malt. Carbonation is perhaps a little high.

kermis (7709) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
330ml bottle@6.5%, lot 402. Pours hazed brass with an audibly fizzing white cap. Wine gum and jasmine on the nose with lime-squirted chick pea and the citrus of hops and coriander seed. Strong prickling flavour of temples and patchouli incense ash with demented yeast and musty spice cupboard. Mid-bitter finish with big hop bite for style. Dirty dishcloth lowlands hops. Bonus point for sheer weirdness and drinkability. Out there.

minutemat (2759) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
33cl bottle. Quite a nice blonde. Pours gold with nice head. Moderately sweet with some wheat, spice, zest, yeast, good farmhouse saison mouthfeel. Perfect beer for the France vs Germany game.
