Alengrin (5163) - BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle from De Hopduvel, from this interesting new To Öl series. Irregularly lacing, snow white, moussy head, cloudy straw blonde robe with warm peachy hue. Fruity, very vivid and evidently citrusy aroma of passion fruit juice, strong lime flesh, orange peel, pink grapefruit, elderflowers, rainwater, soggy bread, yellow raisins, home-made lemonade, tangerine, fermenting hay and dough. Extremely fruity, lush onset, lots of lime sourishness against passionfruit and mandarin sweetness, guava, rambutan, soft and fluffy, smooth mouthfeel. Bready malt middle section buried underneath ongoing tropical citrus fruit lusciousness, lime-like, ’fresh’ and real citrus sourishness more pronounced in the finish but utterly refreshing, New World citrusy hop aspects highlighted by the actual citrus fruit used, providing a late bitter ’kiss’ but not disturbing the overall juiciness and fraîcheur of this beautiful little beer. Apparently intended as an ESB with which this obviously has little to nothing in common - if anything, this is a full-fledged NEIPA enhanced by actual - and very explicit - citrus effects.

DuffMan (10143) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle. Very hazy translucent orange with a massive white head. Bold citrus peel and yeast, lots of yeast actually, with lean malts and a very bitter finish. This is not even remotely close to an ESB. As a Belgian strong ale, it’s not bad though.

Bov (12637) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2017
from Erzbierschof - hazy golden blond beer with a moderate foam left; solid aroma of tangerines and oranges; light yeasty, juicy and gently sourish; a good malt backbone, long tart and juicy finish of tangerines and apricots; some sweetness

mike_77 (6362) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2017
Pale blond and hazy with a thin head. It tastes sharp and bitter. Lots of citrus peel. No idea why it’s described as an ESB.

El caso de To Øl es paradójico cuanto menos. Capaces de lo mejor y lo peor, cualquiera diría que tienen en su grupo de currantes a una serie de discapacitados mentales que no tienen muy clara su labor. Una vez más, me dejan anonadado. En teoría estoy bebiendo una Bitter, pero creo que se han confundido y han creado una Sour Ale (el porqué de dicha confusión no soy capaz de explicármelo...). Huele a mandarina, a naranja; sabe a lo mismo, sin rastro de pomelo, con una acidez propia de una Sour Ale (imagino que el trigo y tanta fruta ácida tienen algo que ver). No hay amargor, solo ácidez y frutas (y la acidez no es particularme agradable, es una acidez rancia, como si no fuera deliberada). Si esta era su idea de una Bitter... ¿Lo próximo será una Porter con color de Hefeweizen y sabor a plátano?

BlazerT (1050) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Glass. Yellow, medium hazy with moderate white, frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is moderately malty with moderate citrusy flavors - oranges, tangerine, also some grapes and straw accents. Taste is moderately sweet and light to moderate sour/acidic with slightly Belgian notes. Medium body, creamy and oily texture, average carbonation, finish is moderately sour, zesty, crisp and refreshing. Summary: Decent brew. Very surprising - acidic, sour. The malts are almostly totally covered by the sourness and zesty notes. Nice experiment an definitely worth trying. Totally underrated here !

13/XI/16 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 8/III/18 (2016-1303)

Clear dark blond beer, small aery fizzy white head, unstable, falls down quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, some tangerines and fresh oranges indeed, little yeasty, some grapefruit juice. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: pretty sour and lemony start, yeast, some banana peel, fruity notes, soft bitterness, lime juice. Aftertaste: sour, lemon juice, peach flavoured candy, little spicy, some tannins, yeast, little spicy. Not very convincing, just a big clash of all sorts of different flavours...
