Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 18, 2016
Holzig hefiger Antrunk, hopfig, stark karbonisiert. Vollmundig würzig, der Hopfen bleibt stark und ist noch tatsächlich gut erhalten für den Jahrgang. Wenig süß, dann etwas herber mit alkoholischen Beinoten. Langer, wenig bitterer Abgang, deutlich hopfig und weiterhin belgisch hefig. 11/11/12/12/8/12

kraddel (6386) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2016
Random find of the very specific vintage I was missing ! Pours clear blonde, under a rather big white head. Smell is sharp, mildly bitter, very yeasty. Taste is sharp, bitter ( still ) over a nice, malty, and very yeasty back. really mellow, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice and more balanced than other hommelbiers i’ve had before. perhaps due to the age ? In contradiction to my expectations, this is not over the top at all.

weark (654) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au Grain d’Orge - De couleur orangée avec une mousse blanche - Au nez des arômes floraux et légèrement citroné des houblon un corp malté mielleux et une final un peu herbacée du à la quantité de houblons utilisé - En bouche le corp malté prend plus de place toujours mielleux, floral et herbacée du houblon on sent une grosse présence de houblon - Corp moyen, amertume moyenne/forte, carbonation correcte, douce, final floral moyenne - Bue un peu tard on sent bien que les houblon ne font plus leur effet comme au début, mais vraiment bien réalisée

Renobob (1632) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Blonde claire. Très belle bière bien amère parfaitement équilibrée. Malts discrets mais qui apportent une belle rondeur et une bonne corpulence. Effervescence douce. Houblons, fraîcheur, finale explosive.

ciocanelu (1435) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 3, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with large head that goes away quickly. Aroma is dominated by Belgian yeast but has also some hop notes. Taste starts quite balanced but gets quickly dominated by hop bitterness. Had it almost 2 years old so the bright hop notes were probably gone. It’s a shame I didn’t have it fresh.

yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is quite fruity, with some pale malts and a peppery note. Some yeasty hints too. The flavor has a nice bitterness, pale malts in the back, and some yeast, pepper notes and a generic citrusy fruityness. A little sweetish touch too, especially in the finish. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation level. Quite bitter finish. Nice this one, but not fabulous. 141011
