corkyrory66 (512) - BELGIUM - APR 29, 2014
Bière blonde de 8 % abv, appelée ultra par pure fantaisie du brasseur. Couleur doré moyen. Apparence voilée avec levure en suspension (grand dégagement gazeux au décapsulage). Bulles moyennes et peu nombreuses en une colonne au centre. Mousse blanche un peu ternie, qui nappe à 1 mm. Arômes de camomille, babeurre, pointe de vanille, houblon amer, blé. 1ère bouche souple avec un bel équilibre malt/houblon et une amertume précise assez jolie. Arrière-bouche harmonieuse. 2ème plutôt sur le houblon, mais agréable, amertume fine. 3ème revient sur un malt assez prononcé et du houblon. Arrière-bouche bien faite. La longueur donne un côté plus fruité, mais descend sensiblement. La levure est lisse, fine, avec une pointe fumée. L’alcool est un peu curieux, et vient seulement sur la finale au moment où le niveau descend. La finale est très en dessous. CONCLUSION : une bière trop gazeuse à l’ouverture, qui tient une belle saveur sur les 1ères bouches puis s’épuise sur la longueur, avec un alcool très curieux qui ne fait pas son travail.

Hazy pale blond. Light bodied but tasty beer with a spicy edge. Quite a smooth creamy texture.

Idiosynkrasie (3578) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
330ml bottle [gusher]. Hazy, pale golden colour with lots of chunks floating around, small, frothy, collapsing, white head. Biting spicy aroma, yeasty and bitter hoppy, vague fruity background, maybe pineapple and other overripe/fermented fruit. Taste is fruity, bitter hoppy and spicy yeasty overtones, hints of pear, pineapple, apricot. Unbalanced, not my cup of tea.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle at Unicorn BBQ in Kunshan, China. Foams all over when opened. Very mild, mellow banana yeasty aroma. Completely cloudy overripe banana color, almost brown.head settles to a beige 1/8". Shatp bite with a lot of cinnamon malt taste. Pretty nice beer actually. Not difficult to enjoy.

mile (2853) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty - some wheat and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, light spiciness (coriander). Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, light spiciness and hoppyness, light alcohol. Your quite typical Belgian strong ale. Light bitterness in the finish and not too sweet though.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB 27/08/2014. From bierzwerg.de.
Hazy brownish golden colour with a small white head. Biscuit, malt, fruits and mild yeast in the aroma. The flavour is surprisingly malty with bread, biscuit, fruits, mild hoppy bitterness and some yeastiness. Very mediocre brew.
