thewolf (12491) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2017
Bottle @lfestival 2017. Pours clear dark golden with a small, creamy white film head. Aroma has dusty malts, wheat, hay, light vinious. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, doughy, very fat, some grainy notes, fairly vinious. Doesnt get too sweet. Interesting, but probably a bit one-sided.

Chapeau (29) - - APR 3, 2017
On tap @satellite, Lausanne. Smells Sorachi Ace, coconut and caramel. The perfect smell. It has a light amber color with nearly no foam. Tastes Sorachi Ace, caramel, hop and malt. Bitter finish that does not last very long. Creamy, medium to heavy body, low carbonation. Just an insane brew.

Speko (380) - DENMARK - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 0,5. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Aroma is mainly dill and lemongrass, with some dust and banana. Taste follows the nose, however the lemongrass is more dominating than dill. Medium body and average carbonation.

SlackerMads (3350) - DENMARK - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle thanks to Bob. Hazy copper with a medium sized white head. Sorachi notes of lemongrass and dill in the nose, some dust, sweet banana. The flavour is also dominated by lemongrass and dill, some starch, sugar, banana, chardonnay. Medium to full body, oily texture, medium sweet and bitter with some alcohol. Somewhat astringent and rough finish with alcohol. Odd and not too pleasant.

josanguapo (1564) - SPAIN - FEB 18, 2017
From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Technobabylon. Odd tasting brew, with lots of what may be described as strange flowers in it. Saturates. May be because of excess of sorachi ace? Zesty too

cmacklin (1095) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
550ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold with lots of floaties and a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of pale malt, caramel, floral, apricot, orange, yeast and pine. Sweet, fruity flavour of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, melon, apricot, biscuit malt, yeast and pine with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a thick, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Interesting and original.

KoNrRiI (1456) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2016

0.55 bottle.
A hazy, gold color with a granulated, yeasty suspension, and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, light fruits, spices, flowers, nectar, and some herbs. It offers an uncanny combination of Belgian aromas with herbs, flowers, and nectar notes too boot - terrific. Taste is sweet, more fruity, flowers and herbs still play a big role with the latter contributing some bitterness. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is rather long and very floral. Overall the beer is great, but most importantly, I can say in all honesty that I have not yet tasted anything of this sort before. Points for originality.

R4N5H (1111) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
66cl bottle (shared) at The Globe, Hong Kong on 27-Sep-2016. Reddish amber in colour with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt, dark fruit, spices and malt. Full body and medium/soft carbonation. Taste heavy in malt and stewed fruit. Lightly hopped. Character of a Belgian ale. OK, but a bit heavy going.
