Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottled May 2011, so almost a year old. Pours hazy gold with some chunks and a massive frothy white head that continuously builds in the etched Sam Adams tulip, kind of annoying. It took 15 minutes just to let the head recede and actually get some aroma. It did warm up nicely during that time too though since it was too cold at first. Aroma of citrus, bready malt, herb, fruit, earthy funk. The hops hold up well in the taste, fairly bitter and not oxidized, nice malt body. Medium body, high carbonation.

Lekker biertje met een goed volle, warme smaak en een heel prettige afdronk.

Robe orange foncé, opaque. Mousse blanche abondante, remonte vite en un col stable et compact. Bonne tenue et la mousse retombe en formant une surface rocailleuse. Nez fruité d’abricot, fruits mûrs, légère acidité et note maltée biscuitée. Une bouche gourmande à souhait : le fruité arrive à l’attaque avec une très légère acidité, le tout s’accompagne d’une base maltée douce, biscuité, mais sans sucrosité excessive. Le tout se complexifie avec une amertume houblonnée florale et herbeuse qui vient ponctuer la bouche. La finale est douce-amère, légèrement astringente. Chaleur alcooleuse légère. Corpulence moyenne, belle rondeur. Une blonde belge fruitée, douce, houblonnée et très légèrement acide. Difficile de faire plus complexe et plus équilibré.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, huge frothy white head. Smell of fruity yeast esters, hay, some hops, light malts, quite elegant. Moderate sweet, floral. light malts, fruity yeast influence, easy drinkable. Moderate bitter, grassy tail. A plain good belgian!

Draft at Bert’s Bottle Shop in Millersville, PA. This is the first time I have every had this on draft. It was a very foamy keg.Has lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is light Brett through cobwebs and a light, fluffy, airy, pancake doughness. Flavor is light herbal Brett that eases out the slightly bigger rmalts. Some light bitter brett, thick herbal bread with a light finish.

Buen color rubio con mucho carbonixo lo q provoca mucha espuma clara y consistente. Con un punto amargo y de gran intwnsidad wn el paladar. De aroma y sabores aramelados sutilmebte con un cuerpo dwnso pero muy agradable y una turbidez muy marcada por el poso. Ese punto amargo recuerda a toque de frutas citricas. No bebbwr demasiaado fria para q sueltebsu potencial

Idiosynkrasie (7622) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017
330ml bottle [and for once no gusher from De Dolle]. Cloudy, orangey, bright golden colour with huge, fluffy, permanently reinforced, mostly lasting, minimally lasting, white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma, notes of peach, mirabelle, nectarine, apricot, bitter grassy-leafy hoppy overtones, minimally sugary, biscuity malty basis with hints of shortcrust. Taste is dry, yeasty fruity and grassy-leafy bitter hoppy, diluted notes of peach, mirabelle, nectarine, slightly watery, biscuity, pale malty basis with subtle sweetness; minimally watery passages, slightly overcarbonated, hence some deprivation of intensity in taste.

Moretum (172) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2017
Fast klare, goldene Farbe mit eindrucksvoller, weißer Schaumkrone. Leicht fruchtiger, hefiger und malziger Geruch. Süßlicher, aber ebenso dezent säuerlicher, würziger und hopfiger Geschmack mit Citrus und Grapefruit. Lang anhaltender, trockener und bitterer Abgang. Sehr erfrischend.

dnicolaescu (2616) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 10, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Almost clear golden, with sediment, ridiculously large rocky white head. The aroma has dried white grapes sweetness, melon, balanced by white wine dryness, as well as some herbal hoppy notes. The taste is medium sweet with notes white raisins, wild flowers and a robust lingering herbal bitterness. Solid, yet easy-drinking.
