Benzai (14653) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - OCT 9, 2012
Sampled from bottle @ monthly De Molen tasting. A bit hazy yellow color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell malts, a bit sweetish and herbs or spices. Taste malts, sweetness, herbs or spices. Not really my thing and above all too much carbonation, low to medium body.

750 ml on sale at Lifesource in Salem OR. $7.99 I for got this in the freezer for few minutes too long..so to begin with it was a wonderful Belgian slushy. Eventually poured a hazy bright yellow ale with a huge frothy and fluffy white head. Aromas of hop , lemon zest and spicy yeast..nice. Same as the aroma but more of a lovely yet weird lemonade finish. Mouth feel is very nice..smooth yet spicy good stuff Very nice beer indeed

Bottle to glass - pours a light, hazy orange with a frothy eggshell head. Aroma is yeast, coriander, estery florals and some funk...Spicy and inviting. A bit spritzy leading to a dry finish. Full of flavor, spice, banana, grass, good.

Mellow orange color with a healthy white head of foam. Sweet citrus with well balanced malt to spice blend. Light yeasty and doughy malt support floral, spices and light bright hop characters.

Unfortunately, I think the hops overpowered the rest of this beer. There are some spicy notes, barely enough to remind you that it was fermented with a Belgian yeast strain, a lot of hop bitterness, and not much else. This isnt a bad beer, but it isnt great.

kevinator (1985) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Nice Belgian. Aromas and flavors were strong with a hoppy character and Belgian yeastiness. Crisp palate and light but has a slight bite at the end from the alcohol. Golden color with a white head.

muzzlehatch (4900) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2016
750 ml bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served at cellar temp in a Duvel glass. Big frothy, foamy white head dies with some rapidity atop the very hazy, lightly bubbly golden body...nose dominated by spicy esters (cardamom, cinnamon) and a sweet malt and yeasty character that while not exciting is certainly entirely appropriate...theres also a bit of vanilla, or bourbon-vanilla, and some floral notes as it warms more...body is moderately sweet, lightly tart, with hops surprisingly enough showing up right away and continuing through to the slightly drier (though still juicy), somewhat bitter and mineralic finish...effervescent carbonation, vaguely syrupy feel in the mouth...gets progressively more peppery and dry and tart with more swallows and more minutes. This is fairly decent and at its price, one of the better deals in this style around here, and certainly the cheapest beer from this br(u)ewery that Ive seen. A somewhat pleasant surprise.
