sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2013
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.

tderoeck (5148) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 1/II/13 - 75cl bottle from Delhaize @ home as aperitif (with Wim and Hilde) (2013-106)

clear orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet ripe fruits, canned peaches, some citrus, exotic fruits, sweet and syrupy. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: fruity, quite some citrus, grassy, dry hops, some spices, cloves, bitter touch. Aftertaste: bitter, dry and hoppy, some citrus, bit medicinal, nice hoppy and fruity flavours. Despite not being my favourite hop, still a very nice beer!

Clear orange colour with creamy white head. Nose evokes peaches and citruses, both really ripe. Body and carbon are medium, texture is slick. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is dominated by citruses and hops, hints of hay, cloves and coriander. Finish is bitter and hoppy. B@VBF2013.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 29, 2013
Orange-trübe, stabile Schaumkrone. Grapefruit-Citrus-Aroma, auch leicht harzig. Vollmundig im Antrunk. Die Fruchtigkeit wird zügig durch das mehr als bittere Finish beendet, für mich einen Tick zu bitter. Ansonsten sehr gut!

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle at Johan’s place. cloudy, deep gold, with a fine head. Wood Sorachi nose, grass, lemon, vanilla, oak. Tasty citrus flavors, wood and vanilla. Great Sorachi Ace character and big bitterness.

McWorta (661) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Dark golden colour a bit hazy, silky white head fading a bit but then lasting. On the nose develop interesting aromas of exotic fruit, some mango and spring floral aromas. Light fizzy and develops a lovely light oily lacing on the palate. Medium body, fruity sweet but well in balance, some hints of bitterness but quickly overwhelmed by chewyness. Soft on the lips and the finish is overall rather short but has a linger on the palate silently with some dryness. Astonished of this - I like it!

JorisPPattyn (8032) - 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!

Bontus (642) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2013
75 cl bottle, Delhaize. Good price! Pours hazy to clear yellow. Citrus nose, spicy pineapple, more earthlike, bitterness is well rounded and well balanced.
