Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2012
Unclear, somewhere between amber and blonde, with a good head of yellow tinted fine foam that lasts long. The nose is quite unremarkable, slightly hoppy and at the same time sweetish. The taste is much more interesting: grains, hoppy though not excessive, the same sweetness of the nose without being cloying, mild spices. Not much alcohol, feels softer than 9%. There is some warmth but never an alcoholic taste unless you let it get closer to room temperature. The aftertaste is smooth with lingering hops and softly the same spices that occurred in the taste. Overall a smooth blonde, a mix between hoppy and sweet. However this simple description doesnt do justice to the beer which is more complex and evolving than one would expect. Also, when the beer is a little warmer its much fuller in taste and much more powerful.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Chunky, cloudy, pale straw colored pour. Sizable white head that falls quickly and leaves a small amount of bubbles behind. Lemon meringue aroma. A little yeast as well. Sweet lemony flavor with a big dose of malt and alcohol. A slight bitterness left behind, but balanced out with some sweetness. Not as bad as I would have thought.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2011
33cl bottle, BB12/2011. Dore brumeuse, col blanc pais avec normment de sdiments de levure. Arme levure avec note de malt caramel, houblon lger et ce profile de levure ferment et de cave/sous-bois. En bouche, lger pices, malt caramel, aspect trs grains et biscuit, sucre candi et tjrs une levure trs prsente, voire trop rendant le palais un peu spcial trop pais. Houblon reste discret. Pas certain de cette bire, palais ne me dit rien, trs pais, avec une impression de grumeaux et levure.
