Bottle on the train to Poperinge. Clear golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of perfume, pears, corn, clove, bread, sweet alcohol and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of pears, corn and raw sugar. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. OK.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Bought at Match, Eupen. A decent Belgian beer, but nothing special. The advertised spices and licorice were not very noticeable.

guzgorog (784) - FRANCE - JUN 13, 2014
Blonde dore/cuivre avec un col de mousse moyen mais solide, un peu de levure en suspension. Nez sur la levure et les pices. Lamertume est moyenne, le got est sucre et pic (coriandre). Corps moyen, lalcool se fait sentir. Une ale dans la tradition belge honnte mais rien dexceptionnel.

Nice Belgian blond beer. Has the usual body, but with some extra spices, which makes it stand out a little.

bartlebier (3631) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at source, 01V2014. Heavily spiced, old-style Wallonian coriandre-yeast bomb. Oily mouthfeel, laden pale malts. Still a step up from filtered caramel Leffe, although in the same antiquated Near-instant Honey league. Carries its weight as gracefully as a jambon ardenais or a petticoated turn-of-the-century damsel with a funny hat. // Instant rerate bottled, the sanest option at French InBev bars across the border: much more quaffable bottled, a bit leaner and less sugary, although still not a thirst quencher and due in part to more metallic components. Some grassy hop qualities shine through. In a way on par with Delirium Tremens, solid Belgian fare. +0.2

JefVerstraete (3060) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2014
Same style as Duvel, Sloeber, Judas,... Pale golden colour, a lot of carbonation. Yeasty with light fruity nose. Some mettalic notes in the finish.

Une bire trs connue en Belgique, et qui a fait un long chemin. Est-ce pour autant un fleuron de la brasserie?? Les avis sont mitigs, assez varis et pour tout dire partags. Prsentation visuelle et olfactive intressante. Verre au pied pais trs personnalis. Jolie couleur blond fonc soutenu. Clart nette. Bulles assez grosses mais trs nombreuses et extrmement vives. Mousse blanche trs paisse et crmeuse en haut comme du blanc doeuf battu. Armes de bl, levure, pointe de fruits blancs et coriandre. 1re bouche soyeuse sur une amertume fine, profonde, avec des herbes des tangs, une pice soft, une pointe de poivre blanc. Arrire-bouche assez courte. 2me sur de la carotte de sapin, de la terre arable blonde. Arrire-bouche malte, plus quilibre. 3me sur de la levure et de lorge. La longueur est moyenne, peu convaincante. La levure est trs prsente au premier abord, bien dfinie, intressante. Lalcool est modr, mais correct. La finale est plus harmonieuse et assez longue. CONCLUSION: une bire visuellement satisfaisante, au nez et premires bouches convaincantes, mais qui faiblit sur la longueur avant une finale plus harmonieuse. On ne sait que penser en dfinitive, et trop y rflchir, on se perd en conjenctures ... Ceci ne peut apporter un gros score...

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2014
Clear amber color with a nice off white head that leaves a small lacing. Aroma is malty, fruity and yeasty, Hints of apricots and caramel. Flavor is sweety, fruity and malty. Medium carbonation and body, dry yeast finish.

77ships (8494) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Carrefour. BBF 17/01/2016. Looks like an advertisement beer, golden, bubbles rising, foamy med. white head. So yeah, pretty good appearance. Smells like esters, banana, grass, white bread yeast, fusels and some alcohol alongside the grass. Tastes of fusels, alcohol, white bread, cakes mixed with plastic, banana, quite sweet, touch chemical, candy sugar sweet, synthetic honey. Touch fizzy. Another BE brew that is aptly made but mainly just tastes of fusels, alcohol, plastic, white sugar etc. You know what I mean

Flaske 0,33l fra Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Delt med Rune under avskjedsrating i H9 - 3 Des 13. Gylden. Litt uklar med bunnfall i siste kvelling. OK luftig skum som etterlater litt lacing. Alkoholen fint integrert i en litt st fruktsmak.
