snzcujo (282) - - NOV 14, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 13/11/2012. Pours of hazy copper/brown color with a huge head. Aroma is mild and caramely sweet upfront, with hints of lollipops in the end. Taste is normal, with notes of dark fruits, caramel, hints of bread as well. Huge alcohol tone in the aftertaste. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Most of it sprayed out when opening. Drainpour. Sourness overwhelmed the farmyard aroma I could detect. Not my beer.

Cybion (183) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml. Exploded on opening (oops). Pours very very cloudy dark amber/orange with (explosion aside) a large amount of frothy, dense, off-white head. Lacing is very thick thick and theres no carb visible (though this has been settling for a bit). Very juicy looking and head retains forever. Nose is strongly fruity and sour; lots of ripe green apple, citrus, pineapple, bit of champagne, floral, garden notes. Some sweeter stuff going on underneath; candied fruits, sugar, banana esters, clove. Musty, whiff of resinous hops, no booze. All working very well so far! Taste is initially sweet and juicy with more pineapple, light honey before a hefty hit of sour in the middle, opening up a whole basket of fruity flavours including the aforementioned pineapple, lemon, grapefruit, green apple, several varieties of melon (honeydew and watermelon most prominent) and a bit of blood orange towards the end. The sour astringency continues into the finish to join with a fairly potent grapefruit bitterness and lingering cereal and melon. Throughout theres a bit of spice (mostly clove and coriander) and belgian yeast, though this isnt too prominent. Body is medium-full, texture is thick and sticky, carbonation is moderate finish is fairly crisp and dry but long and bitter. Fantastic array of fruity flavours combining with a hefty sourness make this a seriously refreshing brew despite the 8% ABV (which is completely hidden taste-wise). Just wish I hadnt lost half of it upon opening!

Banzale (269) - FRANCE - FEB 4, 2017
Acheter tabac&co palais des bires dans famiflora dottignies. Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur cuivre assez ple , plutt trouble avec un brillance moyenne . Mousse raisonnable avec un jolie col bien dense . Au nez : cest fruit, un peu dacidit , un peu vineux type champagne voir en bouche . En bouche : cest trs aromatique , un peu de fruit comme des fruis en grappes type raisin blanc ce qui donne la sensation vineuse type champagne. Petit note dacidit assez agrable ! Belle longueur et belle quilibre , assez long en bouche ! Top!

Palme (4647) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2017
0.33l bottle courtesy of and shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a hazygolden orange body with a small off-white sidesticking head. Aroma ls light champagne-yeasty, lots of candi sugar and some mild dried fruit. Quite sweet. Average to soft carbonation and has a mild oily to sticky mouthfeeling. Also really sweet in flavor with more of that nice candid sugar, some yeast and it has some light alcohol in the finish. Quite different from the X but nice enough. 27.06.2011

Hopmaestro (1596) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2017
Vintage 2014: Aroma is fruity and stingy spices. After a while in the glass, it gets a little "farty" smelly (?). Taste is sweet fruity but with a light sourness in the back. Light sour apples. Not my kinda beer.

Acetic and sour notes, red fruits, yeast, amber with a huge ocher head, medium body, insanely fizzy, sour is quite intense, alcohol is very well hidden, apple, redcurrant...another strange masterpiece by De Struise.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fajnie się zepsuło. Wyszedł niezły lambic. Tylko ten masakryczny gushing...

ardeo (364) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2016
Bire 33 cl hyper dbordante et partie en gushing. Il men est rest peu prs 15 cl.et la mousse de cette blonde trouble est vite retombe. Le nez est spcial, sur la levure, les fruits jaunes, le pin. La bouche piquante et aigre est malgr tout savoureuse et rserve une belle amertume finale. Bonne mais difficile juger et -pour moi- difficile boire les 15 cl (vu le ct aigre) ! :-)
