olio (10672) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2018
473 ml can. Canned on 27.04.2017.
Pours hazy yellow color with a large white head. Very sweet aroma from the get-go, pineapple and mango notes, glue-ish alcohol and resin. Flavor follows the same lines, overly sweet and the alcohol is present through-out, pineapple and mango sweetness, toffee, some yeasty stuffiness at the end. Almost undrinkable but manageable, a great disappointment.

CraftBeerNick (2969) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018
Can at home, New Years Eve, 31st December 17. Pours a straw colour. Aroma is yeast, slight sour. Taste is yeasty, saison character, some fruit and a little bitter sour. OK.

kermis (14955) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2017
7 3 7 3 15
Draft at Brody's, The Hague. Very hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of herbal hops, sweaty hops, yeast, light fruits, caramel malt and green weeds. Flavour is above moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

bierkoning (13810) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2017
Tap @ Brody's. Blonde. peach in the aroma. Malty sweetish alcoholic flavor. like pfirsich brand from a rural Austrian distillery. Peach, floral, slightly perfumed. Nice.

ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2017
Canned 473ml. -Courtesy of franski, shared with him and several others. Clear yellow/golden coloured, minimal white head, mild citrusy nose. Moderate malty, citrusy hoppy, grassy and notes of lime but unfortunately ruined by pretty sharp alcohol presence. Balanced bitterness but unbalanced alcohol here. Pitty. 9.0%ABV

Vells (1980) - Rīga, LATVIA - AUG 12, 2017
Feels kinda unbalanced, but I like it. Nice Belgian yeast department, with some nice fruitiness kick, bit too sweet at some point, but decent bitterness wrinkles that out. Some weirdish berries, bubblegum. Lovely.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 473ml can (Alus Celle, Riga) (4:3:4:3:9=2.4)
Gluuuueeeee! My tash stuck to the glass, but that could also be the sweetness. Can smell and taste the belgian yeast fingerprint. Rough, harsh bitter hopping, chemical, aggressive. Reminds me of the very earliest "belgian IPA"s from 5-10 years ago, but with added booooooooze. Roughy McRoughface.

martjoobolut (5337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
Can, 9% abv (thanks fatphil). Pours golden. Aroma is diesel, hops, citrus. Flavor is sweet and bitter, sugar, booze, belgian yeast, malt. Finish is sweet and booze. Overall: drinkable, booze juice.

Alusmamuts (2170) - LATVIA - JUL 1, 2017
9% ABV. Golden with rich white creamy head. Sweet fruity aroma. Fruity sweetness with some sourness too on the medium bitter background. Quite mild and nice.

googleimage83 (172) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2017
Reminds me more of an overproofed saison. Apple, lemon tang, belgian yeast character. Attractive and desserty, but very sweet and far too expensive at $5+ per can.
