Many thanks for this beer to tderoeck. Porzadnie i intensywnie nachmielone jest to piwo. Pachnie glownie natka pietruszki. Zlozista barwa na koniec nieco metnosci o piskowej barwie, ale tak blyskawicznie rosnaca piana jak spadajaca lawina z Mont Everestu jest zadko spotykana. Trwala i mocno oblepia szklo. Smak mocno goryczkowe, chmielenie jest tu podobne do chmielenia pilsow niemieckich i czeskich. Bardzo wytrawne, zupelnie nie slodkie i malo slodowe. Perfekcja niemal.

White frothy head, murky yellow colour. Grassy hoppy aroma. Nice bitterness.

Bouteille de 750 ml du Canada Craft Beer Club. Au premier nez, une perception de levure fruitée avec notes de gomme baloune, vanille, de banane. Ça se développe en notes de foin et d’herbes fraiches. D’apparence dorée et floue, avec une bonne mousse crémeuse qui persiste plus d’une minute. L’entrée de bouche se veut piquante et effervescente, avec une finale herbacée assez intense qui se prolonge en arrière bouche. Des notes de poivre, de gomme baloune, de banane en petit dosage subtil; mais surtout une amertume herbacée intense aux accents de persil. Fruitée, douce, délicate, tout en subtilité, voila les caractéristique de cette excellente bière.

Bottle. Hazy golden with a compact white head. Citrusy aroma, yeasty, spice. Sweet malt with citrus, almost peachy, and slightly pungent. Bitter finish, dry, lightly grassy. Lovely.

Golden appearance with a white head. High bitterness. A dry finish and lively carbonation. Not my favorite.

Flaska 75 cl systembolaget. Disig orangegul kulör. Doft av hö, örter och humle. Frisk och brödig smak. Viss fruktighet med balanserad beska. Fuktig och frisk

On top at the sovereign. Pours a golden color with a lacy white head. Notes of earth, green, tea, and hop. Nice beer.

Ysok02 (1645) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2017
Robe blonde, mousse crémeuse et abondante. Nez puissant sur le houblon, les agrumes confits, les écorces d’agrumes, sur un fond de céréales. Bouche tout en puissance et en amertume, bulle fine et amère et longue finale sur l’amertume. Une très belle bière tout en amertume.

hawthorne00 (3990) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle, 11C. Almost bright gold with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of the meadow, under-ripe nectarines, oranges, crackers. Light bodied, high carbonation is maybe a bit too high for me (and better - creamier - after a swirl). Fruity and bittersweet with crackers verging on biscuit, oranges, nectarines, the meadow. Some tropical bubblegum, a touch of menthol. Doesn’t come across as as bitter as XX and is confusingly both softer and more pungent. Second glass is barely hazier than the first - the sludgy sediment is very co-operative. Stunning.

NordicV (2370) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2017
Gyllengul mot orange öl med ett kvardröjande vitt skum. Doften är typiskt belgiskt jästig med deg, hö, gräs och viss pepprighet. I smaken tillkommer citrustoner och ljust bröd.
