Brigadier (3605) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
12 ounce bottle (?)
This was hiding in the back of the fridge - probably something I picked up on clearance based on the sale sticker. A fine Belgian ale meets all expectations. There are definitely better ones but it does not hurt to explore.

Aroma / Appearance - The decadent ruby head shimmers and glows like waning sunlight. A dirty sand colored head accents the body well. Spices mixed with melted red hots and a light trace of grape Jolly Ranchers send confusing messages. It is still assertive but all over the map.

Flavor / Palate - Chocolate truffles, spicy cocoa, and caramel taste like dessert in a glass. The sweet mouthfeel holds its punches until you least expect the alcohol to bite. It may not be the flashiest beer on the shelf but it gets the job done.

Martinus (4562) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2013
Hazy blond colour, white head. Aroma of hops, malts, light sour malts, hay, light exotic fruits. Bitter hops, malty sweetness. Bitter finish, grass and hay.
Nice!

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle, 05/06/2013. Pours hazy amber orange, lighter highlights, big fluffy white head with great retention, lacing all the way down, active bubbles. Aroma is cereal malts, dusty Belgian yeast, light fruity aspects peeking through, soft herbal hops. Taste is cereal malts, light apple with grassy, herbal, bitter hops, yeast. Medium palate, creamy. Alright, decent Belgian ale.

fiammanghilla (968) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 1, 2013
Spina @ Zythos biere festival Piuttosto chiara, torbida, schiuma fine e molto persistente. Parecchio amara con note fruttate del luppolo. Ottima e dissetante!

ruigo (2492) - PORTUGAL - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 From Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon. It pours a hazy yellow with a nice head. Aroma at yeast that is confirmed since the first sip. Very bitter at start but rapidly turns to a very pleasant beer.

DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Bottle at POV, Brum. Belgian beers dont give across so they? This is just (just?) a meaty, crispy, hoppy, yeasty, Belgian treat. 5.5 - live the feeling.

ThirstyBird (2676) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
Poured from a 33ml bottle. It appears a clear gold color with a nice off white cap. Smell is yeast, pepper&spice and a mild malt presence. Taste is a touch of malt up front then quickly comes the some crisp fruitiness, yeast, spice all followed by dry and ever so slightly bitter aftertaste. Body is light but with a slippery aspect to it and delicately carbonated - very nice. Well, I can see myself buying this one again pretty good beer.

bartlebier (3631) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 33cl bottles, for regular sampling aka intermediary sessioning. - Finally a dearly needed light Belgian ale that doesnt knock you out with its high ABV, high sugar level or overcomplex yeast profile - while being still full of taste and expertly balanced. Also, great to finally taste some character EU hops in a light yeasty ale: medium ripe apple, some spice, somewhat reminiscent of De Ranke Guldenberg (De la Senne and De Ranke somehow often overlap...) but less heavy/intrusive and tending toward saison (as many of this brewerys beers). Velvety smooth palate, almost fit for sessioning. / Resampled on tap @ PinPon, Bxl: grapefruit marmelade goodness, fruity, round and bitter with both citrus rind and Belgian hops. Stellar on fresh draught.

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 33cl bottle. Appearance: clouded blonde beer, stable white head. Nose: yeast, peaches, apples, light, quite hoppy. Taste: very bitter, fruity and nice finish, had this beer multiple times before, but I enjoy it most really really cold. In my opinion a little to bitter and dry, maybe the hops, but very nice fruity finish.
