Aroma of fresh hops, a little alcoholic. Taste floral with a nice, gentle bitterness, again too alcoholic though. Japalo (1886) - DENMARK - FEB 22, 2017

Muddied Golden. Medium head with a hop corn. Herbal yeasty. Some alcoholic mouthfeel. Not much bitterness. So so Belgian blonde.
0.33 l bottle from ’Prik & Tik Baelus’, best before July 2018 (apparently a very fresh bottle). Due to the warnings here and on the front label, I opened the cap very cautiously, and after the slightest bit of opening, the foam ran out of the bottle. Would have been a massive gusher I suppose, but I managed to pour more or less a full glass by that. Hazy, golden yellow with a massive, fluffy, almost stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, herbal-spicy aroma of lime, lychee, fresh grass, some clove and Belgian yeast. Slightly sweetish, yeasty-spicy, moderately fruity and quite herbal-spicy taste of banana, Belgian candy, some butter, clove, lime, grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite dry-grassy and yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. The hop flavours are really nice, but the strong yeast aroma lets it appear a bit immature. - I think it’s really questionable to produce these kind of gushers almost on purpose, probably not too many people check ratings on ratebeer before opening a bottle (or pay too much attention to the label). I wonder if the brewery has ever been sued for damages?! guzgorog (867) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016
ATTENTION à l’ouverture : geyser de mousse et présence d’un cône de houblon dans la bouteille (ceci expliquant sans doute cela...). Robe orangée, méga mousse crémeuse blanche. Le nez est assez typique des houblons belges et de la levure. Bouche malt léger, houblon herbeux et terreux, levure belge. Forte carbo, longueur moyenne. Rien de vraiment spécial pour cette blonde belge si ce n’est le cône de houblon dans la bouteille qui est une idée marrante ... sauf pour ceux qui font le ménage et la lessive !!!

24/08/2016 @home - 33 cl bottle from a gift.
Hazy light yellow with huge head. Small gusher because of the hopflower jumping out. Nose bitter hops, fruity, sweet malts. Taste is fresh hoos, sweet malts fruitiness, citrus, long soft bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. I was aware of its reputation so stored upright in the fridge and I had a large glass nearby. Pours rather awkward with all the foam and the hop flower stuck in the neck of the bottle. The result is a cloudy yellow/orange pour with loads of yeast chunks and a huge head. Floral, grassy aroma. Taste follows with orange peel, malts, honey. Moderate sweet and bitter, somewhat creamy, short finish. Ok, but not ok enough to warrant for all the hassle really. Beerhunter111 (20468) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
33cl bottle from a trade with Douberd, many thanks! Soft Gusher! Pours hazy deep golden colour with a huge most good lasting white head. Aroma of mild bitter hops, citrus, grass. Taste of grassy and dry bitter hops, citrus, pale malt, grains, good! Hugh (212) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2016
Bottle. Opened warm and was a gusher. However, settles down to pleasant fresh hoppiness as promised. Pleasant. One I would buy again. DavidBe (71) - BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2016
Sterk ondergewaardeerd bier, maar dit is wel de toekomst. Lekker bitter, tenminste een echt bitter bier. Bier om een avond mee af te sluiten! vipinvelp (4425) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
Somewhat hazy golden yellow, hop bells floating in the bottle. Gusher. White lacing foam head. Hoppy aroma and bitter taste. Nice gift from Tinus. (Velp 201604)
