corkyrory66 (1870) - BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2016
Blonde houblonnée de 6,5 % abv et 34 ebu, avec malt pils, pale ale 9, froment, flocons de maïs et coriandre. Houblonnée au northern brewer, magnum et styrian goldings. Mon exemplaire avait été embouteillé en novembre 2013, et était préconisée pour 3 ans de validité, donc jusqu’en novembre 2016. Mention "très bien" pour ce brasseur qui ose proposer une longue validité sur une houblonnée ... Couleur doré tendre, avec un aspect mat très joli. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, vives. Superbe. Mousse blanche très crémeuse, très épaisse, stable à 11 mm. Magnifique. Arômes d’une superbe amertume à la Orval, coriandre, blé, pointe de maïs fine. 1ère bouche à la superbe texture, et l’extraordinaire entame malt/houblon dans le plus pur style de l’Orval. Arrière-bouche fantastique, à l’amertume très fine. 2ème où ça sent l’écurie à plein nez !!! Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, splendide. 3ème à la superbe texture moelleuse, au grand équilibre, avec élégance et harmonie. Arrière-bouche prégnante, très belle. Longueur qui détaille l’amertume sous plusieurs registres, mais toujours très finement. On trouve notamment quelques pointes fleuries remarquables. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure précise, fine, très belle ligne. Alcool parfaitement adapté au genre, il soutient l’amertume en long et en large … Finale subtile. CONCLUSION : une très grande bière, par sa référence gustative à l’Orval bien entendu, mais aussi par sa finesse propre et une exceptionnelle texture. Du grand œuvre... , même si on a mis dans le nom le diminutif "ke" … c’est-à-dire l’inverse de l’emphase de certains autres brasseurs (mais de qui parlez-vous donc ??)

kermis (12724) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle shared, gusher. Cloudy golden orange with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of Bretty infection upfront, barnyard, floral notes, a strange smokey aspect and yeast. Flavour is moderate sweet and light sour. Light medium bodied with light carbonation. Weird and nasty, drain pour.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Bottled (Bottled 11/2013, BBE is 3 years after that according to bottle). Well, first of all, gusher warning on this one. Yellowish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is slightly grainy with some floral, grassy and herbal notes with some mild yeasty notes as well. Flavour is yeasty, kind of earthy, mild dusty and grassy notes to it. A bit Saisonlike dry notes, but that’s pretty much the only positive element in it.

SinH4 (4584) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle shared with Koelschtrinker. Very hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, some candied sugar. Taste is sweet and spicy yeasts. A bit phenolic an alcoholic. Low carbonation (but the bottle is a few hours old). Not the best Belgian Ale.

kraddel (7715) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
Pours murkey blonde / much yeast even though It was stored upright and poured correctly ( withoud yeast ) meaning it probably just doesnt settle down real well. Oh, whatever. Yeast is healthy ;) Small white head. Smell is yeasty ( what else ) and some grains. Taste is sharp, bitter, very yeasty, a bit óld’tasting ( dusty aint the word, and its not typical aged taste as well ) Some notes of fermented apples, in combination with yeast ( and its bitterness )

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Not really sure what to do with this name. Pours a hazy golden beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma is fairly yeasty, fruity, typical Belgian with some white fruits like pear as well in the aroma. Flavor is medium sweet, a bit buttery, greasy mouthfeel, fairly malty and yeasty. A bit dull and undistinguishable, yet not much wrong with it. Just another one of those thousands of dull Belgian Ales..

mile (3924) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and floral fruitiness, light spiciness (coriander) with light - some herbal hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness with light spiciness and light hoppynessl. Finish is average, malty and lightly dryish, some sharp spiciness and light - some herbal hoppyness. In the finish spiciness gets too sharp. Not too sweet though.
