thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Mathieu76. Pours clear amber orange with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma has bergamot, pear, oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has resin, bergamot, apricot, pear candy. Lingering, quite bitter finish. Nice ipa, where the yeasty notes make it feel like a very hoppy Tripel.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Corked bottle from SVD, thanks! Deep golden color. Grassy, slightly herbal citrus aroma with grapes. Firm grassy, slightly herbal hoppy flavor with citrus, blackcurrant and grapes, A shorter aftertaste as expected.

JorisPPattyn (7814) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2013
Medium, just off-white head over hazy ochre-orange beer. S.A. clearly there, ascertained by the blue mould cheese aroma. Bit of incense, and alien fruit. Blue cheese, mushrooms, citruspeel, very bitter, but in the finish, there’s a latent sweetness. Certain backthroat heat, very carbonated, quite slick, medium bodied. Restrained aftertaste, resiny. Quite good indeed - just as the Mikkeller single hop series S.A.... And again Barley wine seems designated for this hop, IMO. Thanks to Stefaan!

Benzai (7302) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
75cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Ansjelaah, Martinus and Joes @ weekly tasting. Clear orange golden color, small white head that leaves fair lacing. Not a lot of aroma. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, lightly herbs. Typical sorachi ace flavor and bitterness. Average to medium body and carbonation.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Consumed at home in the company of Loz, Craig, Stella & Kids plus Jackie & Simon 02.08.13 Pours hazy orange gold with white head, clearly smells hoppy though unlike some around here, I am unsure if I can pick out this hop. Soft in mouth, touch of creamy vanilla on nose, reasonably bitter with a little mandarin. Good in fact v.good supermarket beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

75cl bottle from Delhaize, bottled 11/2012. Couleur orangée devenant trouble sur la fin, col épais crémeux blanc. Arôme est agréablement fruité, alternant notes tropicales tirant vers les agrumes, touche de fleuri couplée d’un léger résineux, citronné avec des notes magnifiques de noix de coco et raisin blanc telles que on s’y attend avec ce houblon. Malheureusement, la base bière n’est pas souvent propice à mettre en valeur les qualités du houblons, ici c’est tout le contraire, et bien une explosion d’effluves houblonnées met tout cela à profit. Palais est tout aussi enivrant. Note de citronnelle, feuillu avec une pointe de noix de coco très subtile donnant une fine pointe huileuse au palais. Note aussi, comme indiqué sur la bouteille ce côté fleuri-herbacé de lavande qui trouve sa place entre des notes citronnées, pamplemousse et un délicieux, et subtile, raisin blanc. Profil reste légèrement résineux avec une touche d’épices résiduelles. L’ajout de malts pils et munich montre à quel point on peut rendre une bière, de base très belge, intéressante avec juste un bon houblonnage. Vraiment une belle découverte.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma of Sorachi Ace with lemongrass, floral spiciness and some sweetish fruitiness. Flavor of Sorachi Ace with fruitiness, woody and floral spiciness and moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Pretty quaffable.
