TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
33cl bottle consumed at Brasserie Thiriez in Sept. 2014, bottled Dec. 2013: Coppery golden. Fluffy, pasty and creamy white foam exhibits stellar retention. Very bright and clean aromas of lemon, melon rind, lilac, gum, pecan skin and toasty malt. Soft and pillowy carbonation. Lusciously hoppy, with polished lemon atop a coarsely earthy punch of wood-root spices. Zingy, appetizing acids perpetually sparkle with fresh lemon as they deposit rich oily notes which are embraced by the refined and well-structured malt. Fluffy gum notes abound in the center before fading softly into the richly toasty, semi-lush haylike maltiness. Immaculate attenuation is beautifully augmented by the hop oils which produce a marmaladelike effect. Finishes dryly malty with assertive lemon zest bitterness capping things off. Another hopcentric beauty, with lovely malt character to boot. In other words, just your typical excellence from one of the best brewers in the world.

dutchbeerpages (2368) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
This was one of the last beers I had at Borefts 2016. And what happens is that sometimes you only jot down the scores but forget to add anything about the whole tasting experience. This is what happened here.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a white head. Subdued aroma of lemon, oranges, light dough, hay minerals.Light bodied, high carbonation. Dry with abrupt citrus and austere crackery yeast; bitter and very dry at the fast-arriving finish with coriander and sandy (!?) minerals. Interesting, almost withering.
