FatPhil (16891) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2016
750ml bottle (Koht Tallinn)
Lovely fresh hoppy aroma. Super fresh crisp hoppy taste. Lovely mellow palate, but full of character, soft bready malts, but super perfumey hops. Balance absolutely perfect. This is like a mellowed version of the XX. To be honest, I think I prefer the smack in the chops of the XX.

Marduk (8206) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2016
750ml bottle. Bit hazy golden color. Medium size, bubbly white head, stays. Sweet malts, bit of hazelnuts, floral, some plastic in aroma. Malty, sweet, spicy and grassy hops in taste. Hops absolutely explode in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Hopping is exceptionally well done. Very very good bitter.

kajser27 (1957) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 4, 2016
Cloudy, yellow colored, medium white creamish head, good lacing. Aroma is of malt, citrus, spicy phenolic and bit straw. Taste is medium to light sweet malt, light caramel, lots of spicy phenolic-peppery notes and citrus, some straw, medium to strong bitterness, quite dry finish. Medium- bodied, average carbonation, oily. Proper Belgian bitter stuff! (on tap, Gainsbar, Kortrijk)

Not a belgian fan....but this works for me! Enough hops to remind me of prima pils. Nice.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 2, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Blonde, effervescence moyenne. Enorme houblonnage intense du début à la fin de la dégustation. Parfaite pour les amateurs d’amertume.

nathanvc (635) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2016
At Bruges Beer Fest. Pours hazy blonde with a big white head. The aroma contains hops, citrus, grass, yeast and earthy notes. It tastes medium sweet towards heavy bitter. The aftertaste is strong, lasting, dry and bitter. Lively carbonation. A bit too intense.

4.2
Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2016
Amarelo escura, media turbidez, espuma branca de média formação e persistência. Aroma de lúpulo tipicamente belga, seca, doce de mamão, pêssego, complexa. Paladar de médio amargor e leve dulçor. Corpo médio, seco, média carbonatação. Aftertaste trás um dulçor frutado/seco, de média persistência. Uma cerveja de classe, percebe-se a qualidade da fabricação. Perfeita para uma harmonização.
