Rockspeny (15) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - SEP 29, 2012
I am not a fan of Hoegaarden, but I knew this was going to be different. This has a much more obvious Belgian character. Poured from a bottle at a bar, the waiter said to watch, and true to his word it foamed all over, very active. Good golden colour, clouded by all the yeast, big white foam clears. Inviting rich wheaty blonde aroma, very tasty flavour with a distinct Belgian character but not as heavy. Very satisfying when sat out at a square with the sun coming down and the World going by.

jfb (6017) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2017
(bottle) very hazy deep golden colour with a couple of floaties and a frothy off-white head. aroma of pale malts and heavy gletschereis, with lots of wildflower honey, some yeast and a touch of caramel. flavour is mostly bubble gum and earth, slightly oxidized, with a light sweetness, some notes of ethanol, tobacco and strawberry jam in the semi-dry finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

Bire cuivre claire avec trs lgre mousse, un arme de foin, assez floral mais avec une touche mtallique, lgrement ptillante avec un got un peu amer et dpices mais fini avec de leau, le palais reste tres lger. Rien de bien exceptionnel, en mme temps on est sur de lindustriel.

Liked this one even though strong ales have a too distinct spirit taste for my liking. This one however doesnt give you a feeling of drinking a vodka-laced beer. Interesting aroma, drinks well

sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2017
Bouteille 33cl. Bue lpoque o ce genre tait quasi tout ce qui se trouvait de dispo ... heureux que ces jours sont rvolus. Dore col blanc disparaissant vite. Arme au nez fin pic avec une petite note de coriandre, rtro de fruits confits, malt cara ple, pils, rappel bien belge niveau des levures. Le nez reste quelconque au vu de tout ce qui se brasse ce jour, on semble tre de retour au milieu des annes 90. Palais met en avant un ct ester marqu, touche de banane avec un rappel tirant sur la Leffe, fruit modr de pche fermente. Malt cara pils, forment donnant une petite rondeur. Sucre rsiduel apportant le plus dialcool. Recette ressuscite, mais qui ne sera pas celle qui remettra la Belgique sur le devant de la scne belge craft.
