DijkBier (395) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle in Gent. Clear golden pour with foamy white head, good retention. Soft aroma of malts, fruits and some unclear fresh spices. Taste is medium sweet, yellow fruits, both apple, tropical, as banana; light bitterness, somewhat spicy. Mouthfeel somewhat creamy, moderate carbo. Don’t experience the 9 ABV. Might to me be stronger of taste, being a tripel or being called ’inferno’.

bartholos (258) - GERMANY - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden colored with a full white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy, notes of lemon, grass and spices, hints of glove and coriander. Taste is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Medium to thick body, low carbonation and a quite smooth mouthfeel, along with a alcoholic warmth. Flavor is fruity and spicy as well, but gets some more malty notes and a peppery hint. Leaves a light bitter aftertaste.

Zlotta (3282) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, golden yellow with a slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, herbal-fruity aroma of lemongrass, pineapple and some clove. Sweetish, slightly bitter, herbal-fruity taste of lemongrass, pineapple, some ginger and a bit of clove, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite grassy-herbal and a bit yeasty finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Nice, best of the five beers for me!

mice (962) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Paksu valkoinen vaahto, joka jää pitkäksi aikaa oluen pinnalle. Väriltään oranssi/vaaleanrusehtava. Tuoksu varsin mieto, hedelmää ja makeutta, maussa makeahkoa hedelmäisyyttä. Ei juuri jälkipuraisua, suutuntuma ei kovin vahva, hieman metallisuutta havaittavissa. Alkoholi ei maistu liikaa kovista volteista huolimatta. Hiilihappoinen, paljon pieniä kuplia. Ei mikään erikoinen tapaus, paljon parempiakin Belgejä on maa täynnä.

Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 5, 2016
courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - clear bronze beer with a little long lasting foam left; spicy with solid notes of raisins, pears; full-bodied, fizzy, fairly sweet; light grainy, lot of residual sugars, esters and candied fruity notes with more notes of spices and marmalade

Jerre (3391) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2016
Taste the first time end nov. 2011 @ brewpub. Last time 28.01.’16 @ home. Hazy golden color, with a large darkwhite head. Aroma: pale-malts, yeast notes, fruits, a touch of honey. Medium to almost full body. Taste: sweet start, pale-malts, fruits, soft bitterness, alcohol warming.

KoNrRiI (1512) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A clear, gold color with a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, pears, and faint notes of other fruits. Taste is yeasty, alcoholic, fruity - smacks a bit of fermentation. A full body, a creamy texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long, fruity, and does not forget the aforementioned fermentation. Overall the beer is fine yet very simple.
