alteregoo (1394) - Kalisz, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Obfita, mydlana piana, szybko opadająca do chmurki. Barwa słomkowa, opalizująca. Aromat ziołowy, kwiatowy, dość delikatny. W smaku znacznie lepiej - półwytrawne, nuty ziołowe, kwiatowe i biszkoptowe kontruje wysoka, trawiasta, szorstka goryczka, która jednak bardzo pasuje do całości. W posmaku brzoskwinie. Średnie wysycenie, lekkie i pijalne w odbiorze.
Bardzo fajne piwo codzienne, zdecydowanie podobne do świeżego Hop Harvest.

Garrold (5180) - 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 there’s 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.

3.2
The Etruscan (672) - 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.

3.3
Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle, 750 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Shared with Miro and JFK10000. pours clear golden with large white head. Light to average malty, perfumish, average yeasty, bit spicy. Lasting strong bitter finish. Medium bodied. Expected more.

ALIBALI (1989) - 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.

3.8
pivnizub (10571) - Bochum, Porúří, 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" IPA’S...

3.6
dnicolaescu (2533) - 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.
