Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a cloudy orange honey looking one with a medium sized somewhat sidesticking white lacing head. Soft nose really. Not über hopped really. More floral and gentle with tones of honey and lots of vanilla buns(!?). That’s a new one but it does smell like vanilla buns. Nice non extreme nose. Tastes alright also. Feels light oily in the mouth and it’s about average on the carbonation this. Some reeds, lots of grassy tones with sweet wood juices and bittery soap. Dries my mouth quite a lot in the finish, almost so much that I’ll call it a bit soapy, but definitely tasty and something I could drink again. 15.02.2014

superspak (3327) - Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2014
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, late 2013 bottling. Pours slightly cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pepper, clove, light banana, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pepper, clove, light banana, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice/hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pepper, clove, light banana, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish fora while. Awesome complexity and balance of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian IPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

gyllenbock (5728) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in May 2014. Hazy golden with a medium white head. Hops, hay, some malt, citrus, fruit and some light notes of spices. The finish was quite dry. A descent one.

SirLimpsalot (2595) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
@ Eddan 14-8-30: ganska sedvanlig belgisk doft med tydliga kryddor. Ganska bubblig men en trevlig len smak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Van eecke hommel bier from rome. Clear pale amber ale with a frothy white head, good lacing. Little bit wheaty with banana aroma and bit nutty too. Slight bitterness but mostly sweet tasting. Prickly carbonation, medium body.

La Hommelbier, une admirable bière, dans sa version annuelle spéciale « nouvelle récolte » du houblon... En 2013, le brasseur nous précise que les conditions climatiques ont permis un houblon particulièrement aromatique. Nous sommes donc plus qu’impatients devant cette bouteille de 75 cl qui titre à 7,5 % abv, comme la hommel classique. La couleur est un doré brillant foncé superbe. Clarté nette. Bulles fines par milliers en colonne au centre puis partout autour (j’ai pris un verre tulipe très haut de Hopus.... c’est de circonstance!!!). Mousse blanche bien épaisse, crémeuse au sommet. Arômes de houblon, malt, fleur de houblon, levure, orge grillé. 1ère bouche à la texture douce et fine, sur du houblon magnifique et du malt clair. Arrière-bouche maltée, levurée, pleine. 2ème bouche sur des fleurs de houblon avec des nuances très larges. Arrière-bouche d’une belle amertume. 3ème où la fleur se développe encore, fine, parfumée, très riche. Arrière-bouche fraîche et pourtant ample. La longueur développe tout le registre : fleur/malt/levure, avec une amertume vraiment très distinguée. La levure est fine, précise, un rien épicée, magnifique. L’alcool est très progressif et constitue un soutien exceptionnel aux saveurs. La finale est sans défaut. CONCLUSION : une bière qui répond pleinement à son attente, et qui permet ainsi à la brasserie familiale très ancienne des Van Eecke (1624) d’obtenir sans problème son deuxième 5.

Grzesiek79 (3447) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Pelna paleta piekny zlotawy i jasno pomaranczowy kolor piwa. Metny calkowicie gesa i spora kremowa piana. zapach drozdzowy, bananowy i zywiczny, troche jakby sosnowy. Piekna lakierowana i limitowana butelka. Swiezy chmiel wspaniale wyczuwalny w smaku dominuje nad slodowoscia. Im blizej konca degustacji i dna butelki tym wiecej smaku zywicy wyczuwalem. Naprawde extra gozkie i wytrawne piwo, nie dla wszystkich, ale dla milosnikow chmielnych gozkich zdecydowanych piw. Chmiel Poppering jest tu wszechobecny. Polecam odwaznym piwoszom
