frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, - SEP 3, 2007
Pours a golden orange with a thick pillowy head. Damp earthy odors abound, some barnyard and waaaaay in the back some spicy yeast. Dusty yeast flavour, slightly tart with more malt notes showing up as it warms. Briskly carbonated, full mouthfeel. Another good one from Blaugies.

Rami Rami is drinking a La Bière Darbyste by Brasserie de Blaugies at Powiśle Bardzo intensywne, banany, bialy pieprz, morele, tych fig akurat niewiele, drozdzowe jakby. Slodkie. Smakuje mi, ale mocno specyficzne. Belgijskie ewidentnie
Rami Rami: Duzo co2 i moze przez to troche wrzenie duzo ciala? Dlugie posmaki. Jest tez kwaskowatosc. Nie no, fajne to piwo acz ufo

Cunningham (8395) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2017
Hazy deep golden color with a fine white head. Nice intensity in the aroma. Typical Belgian. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation level. Moderate sweet and a fine acidity. Lasting tail and a dry ending. Yeast, some spices, citric and fruity flavor. Lovely beer.
[Tap at Haandgemeng -17]

Clear, sparkling, golden, high head. Aroma apples, cork, baarnyard. Palate medium. Clean taste, dry wine, ripe apples, faint hop aroma. Dry, yet balanced. Great beer!

Bottle shared @Freiburg testing. A copper red beer with low head. Nose is metallic and on red fruits. Aroma is on red fruits, sour background, lot of belgian yest, really basic, did not the the top 50 of the style at all.

Moravius (1445) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2017
Flasche (75 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Kupfergoldbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase frisch säuerliche Frucht: unreife Ananas, vielleicht auch Feige, Mandarine. - Antrunk brausig rezent und spritzig säuerlich-fruchtig, wenig süß, etwas scharf. Mild brotiges Malz und milde würzige Hopfenherbe bilden den notwendigen Gegenpol zum Fruchtcocktail. Erfrischend schlank. Leicht trockener Abgang. - Interessantes, spritzig herb-säuerliches Getränk, das nur wenig mit landläufigen Vorstellungen von Bier gemein hat.

3.9
SylvainCFC (348) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2017
Robe orange foncé, ambrée, trouble. Col de mousse blanche bien calibré, assez compacte, texture un peu meringuée en surface. Nez très fruité sur la figue, la prune, la compote, pâtissier. Une attaque clairement sur le fruit, douce, avec les arômes de figue bien en avant-plan. Clairement un jus (pas vieilli sur fruit). Pas trop sucré pour autant. Le malt est en soutien, pour une impression de tarte ou biscuit. Le fruit termine la bouche, avec une finale assez courte. Corpulence moyenne, texture un peu collante. Bière maltée, fruitée, douce, gourmande, mais légère en alcool (une vraie force car on ne décèle aucune chaleur alcooleuse).

3.7
jbruner (5287) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Shelton 2017. Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with big fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of Belgian farmhouse esters with hints of citrus and spice, overall light fruitiness and bready malt. Taste follows, soft and bubbly, nicely complex with an overall yeastiness. Pretty interesting beer, good stuff.

thellgren (1127) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2017
0.75 l bottle from Koht Pudelpood, Tallinn, Estonia. Appearances is pale amber, cloudy and still, i.e. no head. This is just a fig juice with ABV of 5.8% and it obviously has barley malts too since this is ale. Taste is, however, mainly fig juice, which is not bad.
