Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles - Brussels. Pours clear amber-gold with a frothy, off-white head. The nose has some toasted cereal grains, berries, ripening orange. Medium sweet flavor with cereal sugars, bitter grain husks, some dirty hay, citrus rind, light tangy tangerine. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with further cereal grains, some dry bread, berries and leaves, slight tart berries, leather, earth. So so.

kermis (14479) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle shared, featuring a fantastic picture of an insane yellow flappy bird with 6 wings, lunatic eyes and feathers flying everywhere while the creature is in mid-squark. Truly an exceptional label and probably the most flappy I’ve seen on a beer yet. There really should be a score for rating the label design and if there was, this one would get a 10. Anyway, the beer is hazy orange with a short lived cream head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light sof herbal notes, light yeast, a little pepper and green weedy notes. Flavour is light to light moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. Bonus points for the picture of the demented bird.

thewolf (12735) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Beer City, Belgium. Pours clear golden with a large, creamy, white head. Aroma has mild pepper, crisp malts, citrus, oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has pepper, crisp malts, citrus, quite bitter. Quite elegant.

77ships (10771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2013
25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. All ratings so far in French, cool. Je suis désole que je va arrêter cette tradition et va commencer en Anglais. Bright amber, orange with a big, creamy, slight off-white CML head. Huge bitter orange peel, nose, light caramel, bitter EU grass hops, light pine resin, very floral, hay, very long bitter grass finish, light medicinal, caramel,… mix of EU & USA hops it seems. Taste is very bitter floral, herbal, huge, huge grass, brutal BE hops, hardcore, reminds me a bit of very fresh De Ranke Hop Harvest 2012, light caramel, pine, slightly medicinal, touch plastic, overkill BE hops in a very fun way, light orange peel, very fresh,… Body is lightly oily, sharp carb. Apparently Mosaic, the new USA hop, hype, not really getting this one fully, still not over Sorachi Ace.

olio (10462) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma of herbs, some yeast, fruits, mild vegetable notes and soap. Flavor of grass, citric fruits, yeast and nettle. A bit odd aroma. Strong carbonation, somewhat watery palate.

sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2013
Draft @ Arden BrewFest, merci Manu. Orangée-ambrée, col beige. Arôme donne de suite un bouquet agréable et frais venant des houblons. Le tout oscillant entre fruité, agrumes et herbacé. Palais est sec, note de grains, malt en balance avec ce caractère type de pilsner et caramel, pointe râpeuse du houblon-épice. Le tout tire sur des agrumes subtiles avec ce côté renfermé et encore une amertume qui se manifeste en fin de bouche avec une pointe de grains poussièreux. Une bière qui, comme le dit Manu, oscille entre une amber et IPA. Ici, deuxième bière utilisant ce houblon Mozaic que j’ai eu l’occasion de tester. Ses qualités tant à l’arôme que au goût sont subtiles et complexe et en font un houblon sympa pour un usage multiple.
