Lekker fris , hoppig biertje, maar sloeg helaas wel snel dood. Ondanks dat voor herhaling vatbaar

Clear amber beer with a nice white head, little carbonation. Tastes like hops, fruity, coriander, caramel and sweet. A nice hoppy bitter aftertaste.

Eerste wat opviel was de geur van (Amerikaanse) hop. Ook in de smaak is de hop aanwezig. Ik ben geen liefhebber van lentebock of ander lentebier, maar dit mag je mij gerust schenken op een warme lentedag op een of ander terrasje. Geen wow-ervaring, maar wel lekker!

These are the kind of beers a like when I need a refreshment. The usage of the American hops comes forward in both aroma and taste, bitter/sweet and fruity. The belgian ale characteristics are less abundant, some spiceness. Im missing some malt characteristics as well, making this beer even more an american pale ale.

A few flaws but with caracter. Nice clear golden with a small head and soft carbonation. A bit but not too sweet and a bit but not too alcoholic. Expected something more refreshing. Flavor is malts citrus lycees and bitter hops. Texture is a bit oily. Long bitter aftertaste. Big plus: regional brewer, inexpensive and available at my local big-chain supermarket. Thanks AH guys for offering more than macro pilsners nowadays.

Senka (1080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2014
33cl bottle from Prgu. Not a typical belgian ale. Loads of fruity hops and coriander. Medium bodied, smooth and very satisfying drink. You do not really want to drink anything else after that during the same evening.

Marduk (7174) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Sweet, touch of caramel, faint fruity aroma. Burnt caramel- I mean real caramel not artificial shit, touch of yeast, dead grass in taste. Burnt dusty caramel malts in aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden. Soft carbonation. Moldy burps.

imdownthepub (14209) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent, Belgium. Hazy gold with white head. There is a fairly spicy, herby note to this from the off alongside a fruity, yeasty character. Reasonably bittering with a crisp palate. Pretty decent.

oh6gdx (26412) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Bottled (from biernavigatie). Slightly hazy golden colour small white head. Aroma is fruity, some spices, mild grains and some wheat. Flavour is fruity, floral, some mild herbal and malty notes as well. Gets a bit more harsh once it gets warmer, so try it somewhat fridgecold...

jamesie1857 (2016) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem - Hazy golden colour with average, frothy, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and slightly yeasty aroma, some corn. Taste is initially minimally sweet pale malty, later dry oats, in the finish bitter hoppy, underlying hints of alcohol which is hidden quite well for a 7%.
