GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 9, 2011
750mL. Pours a clear, straw almost witbier SRM with a healthy, pillowy, white head. Excellent retention and giant lace. Dupont yeast nose with mild celery, zippy citrus, fresh lemon and lime, no candi sugar nonsense. Fresh apple and pear in the nose. Taste is sweeter, apple forward, lightly tart and effervescent like a good cider. Gets a little sugar. A little apple heavy and cidery for me but still very nice.

teorn88 (7611) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 28, 2011
75cl bottle. Pours cloudy orangish with a bubblt white head. Aroma is nice and complex: prominent yeasts with a decise fruitiness, some honey-caramel notes along with some hoppiness. Taste is quite complex: starts a bit sweet and fruity with yeast and grass, then hoppy notes to end with spices. Almost dry finish. Nice complexity, full bodied and high carbonation. Really nice.

Bottle. Easy out cork and a big pop. Big head on well carbonated hazy gold. Big familiar scent; Belgian yeast, peach and apricot. Initial impression is dusty, boozy fruit. Overall contains all those notes. A dusty Belgian Maibock.

draft @ Moeder Lambic. Dore type paille, col blanc. Superbe arme alliant la fois douceur et amertume. On y retrouve la levure mais aussi pas mal dpices, ainsi que un aspect fruit type bubblegum. La dgustation offre la mme surprise en bouche. Ayant dj pu goter aux bires brasses selon les vieilles traditions (difficile den avoir une recette prcise vu que on en a trs peu dcrits de lpoque) je mattendais une bire de type gruit donc plus axe sur cet aspect vgtal/ancien, de bires brasses sans houblon qui est parfois difficile approcher. Cette dernire est facile dguster, une levure et des pices confrent un palais intressant que jai trouv plus doux que pics. Par moment, javais souvenir de rglisse ou anis, fruit galement avec un peu dabricot et de miel pour la douceur. Malt reste discret et je garde en bouche ce fini un peu bubblegum, peut-tre un sucre candi?

750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, shared with Billy, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 23MR11.

App.: Golden with floaties, small white head. Aroma: Strong, rich, sweet fruitiness, nice coriander, esters, some alcohol, biscuit, a little yeast. Palate: Medium body, full, elegant effervescence. Flav.: Quite floral, lots of esters, a little yeast, some nice coriander, lemon, more esters, a bit of honey, sweet fruitiness, a touch of alcohol; almost dry with very little bitterness and a nice estery, yeasty, sweet fruit finish.

Pretty nice.
