tderoeck (9669) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2011
10/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 14/10/2012 (2011-258)

Deep red orange to dark amber coloured beer under very creamy yellowish head that is very stable and leaves nice lacing. Aroma: very fruity, typical tropical fruits but also sweet yellow fruits like peaches and mango. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, bit sweet, citrus fruits providing some acidity, turning pretty bitter in the end. Aftertaste: more fruitiness, alcohol in the back of the throat while hop takes over the palate: the tongue turning very dry. Maybe a touch medicinal as with most strong IPA’s.

bottle from Bièrerie. Golden colour, tall white head. Intensive malty start with a touch of alcohol detectable. Lots of resiny hops that also add some citrusy flavours. Strong stuff.

gyllenbock (9160) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a small white head. Nice, fruity aroma on this one. The taste was bitter, with malt and hops. Also notes of yeast. A decent DIPA from Belgium, I especially liked the taste of raspberries.

solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Some citrus and a little smoke bin this. Lots of resin. Hazy amber pour. Some caramelized malt. Bittersweet finish. A little odd. Tap at Churchkey.
