Garrold (4651) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Pale yellow. Soft haze. Thin, dense, lasting, bright white head. Nose is big on the bready, sweet Belgian yeast. Flowery and peachy. Some mineral. Some chalkiness. Taste has a fleeting, bready sweetness. Then theres a lot of grassy, leafy bitterness. Hop oily mouthfeel. Massaging and foamy at the same time. Long, grassy, leafy bitter finish. Missus found this too bitter. Result! More for me.

The Etruscan (648) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 14, 2017
White foamy full lasting head. Deep golden colour. Aroma is hoppy with light fruity (apricot and pear) and light spicy notes. Flavor is hoppy too with apple and pear tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied.

ALIBALI (1123) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2016
THE GOLDEN BOY!!! Sicherlich eines der besten Belgian Ales ever, wobei seine EXTREME Hopfenbittere viel mehr auf ein grasig, verheftes IIPA hindeutet. HEISS!!!! Vom Hahn im FERMENTOREN Kopenhagen. 0,2/35DKK.

pivnizub (10312) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle (750ml): Golden, cloudy, big and very stable rocky off-white head; distinctive - but still moderate - herbal-piney nose, yeast and a certain "belgian" fruitiness underneath; solid dry bitter flavour, medium bodied and soft; lingering piney finish, some yeast and some balancing pale malt detectable.Very good. Better than many " new" IPAS...

dnicolaescu (2279) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 5, 2016
Tap at Pravda Kiev. Cloudy golden, nice creamy head. Really big aroma - cocktail of ripe fruit and wild herbs. Light pale malts and fruit in the taste, a very solid and sudden wormwood bitter kick on the finish. Not very sophisticated, but drinks well.

Michael27 (1301) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2016
Auf der Biermesse in BXL getrunken. Sehr trbes Gold im Glas. In der Nase tropische Fruchtigkeit. Volle Bitterkeit im Antrunk, die aber schnell verfliegt.

ippopotamo36 (2014) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 25, 2016
On tap at Luppolo Station in Rome-Italy, on the day of the tap takeover. Cloudy golden pour, incredible white foam with drafts on the glass. Nose: spices, ripped fruit, noble hops blast! Mouth: oily hoppy notes, bitterness, round bitter feel with spicy notes. Yes! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mike_77 (5873) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2016
Blond with light haze. Aroma an flavour are less impactful that the XX version. This time its very light up front with very dry, floral hop coming through in the aftertaste.
