motelpogo (7239) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 16, 2015
bottled, big thanks to adam. hazy burnt oragne colour with a lingering uneven head; aroma if somewhat musty, hints of white grapeskin and pine; somewhat chalky, out-of-kilter bitterness, peachy malt, lightly gluggy; doesn’t quite work for me

lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, herbs and citrus. Flavour of strong floral hops, grapefruit, grass, hay and herbs. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a floral bitter and grassy finish. Good.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Cask & Kitchen.
Amber colour with a thin off white head. Really good hit of Tomahawk and Simcoe, both are completely obvious. Some decent yeasty notes, not over the top for a Belgian beer. Reasonable balance. Straight forward but enjoyable. Nice to see stuff like this finally starting to become more common in Belgium.

kermis (7000) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours hazy amber with a small off white head. Aroma of earthy hops, caramel malt and light yeast. Flavor is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Svesse (6926) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2013
(Draught at Delirium Café, Brussels, 25 Oct 2013) Dark amber colour, hazy, with foamy beige head. Malty, toasty nose with notes of rye bread, orange peel, toast and burnt rubber. Malty, hoppy taste with toast, burnt rubber, rye bread and a generous piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly dry. Tasty, but a bit unbalanced. Might have been the last of the keg, so I’ll try it again if possible. Still, quite nice.

SudsMcDuff (6850) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2015
I’m guessing this is what I had .. . Dark tan gold .. . Decent foam .. . Harsh chemicals, wood, and dried grass .. Not very good, why would you import a double IPA? .. . . They call it MURDA!

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
Huge yellowish beige lasting head. Deep amber body with carbonation. Deep hoppy peaches and mango aroma with mealy resiny notes. Bitter-sweetish wooden resiny peaches and mango taste with chalky grassy notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Light body. Dry peaches and resin aftertaste with grassy mango notes. Nice, highly drinkable, but perhaps a little bit soft and mild. (0.33l bottle, Bacchus Cornelius, Bruges.)

b3shine (6614) - Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and malty with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.
