tdtm82 (1700) - Essex, - APR 19, 2011
Bottle; bought from magic yeast shop, 33cl, poured into Struise glass on an absolutely blindingly hot day. White lacing, murky copper-bronze appearance, aroma is floral hops, pine, banana, toffee, treacle, oranges, brown sugar. Taste is oranges, toffee, banana. caramelt, pine, gorgeous sprakling mouth feel, candy sugar, slightly burnt toast notes-mildy roasted and sharp on the tongue, alcohol, wood, a bit of burn but not too aggressive, floral hops, reasonably balanced. An interesting beer, think I hold this back a bit too long thu, Sorry Carlo and Urbs, my amateurish rate here.

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) ! :-)

Hopverdju (820) - BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2016
Goudblond bier met wit schuim. BB 05/2019 dus zeker niet oud. Gelukkig nog de helft van het bier over na openen. Wat een geiser! Geur: kruidig, hoppig en wat melkzuur. Smaak: licht zurig, licht bitter, wat moutzoetigheid. Redelijk duur voor een genfecteerd bier waar je maar de helft van overhoud!

Kr1zz (428) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2016
Bottle 33cl bought at Dranken Geers in Oostakker. Pours dark hazy blond with a medium white head. Nose: sourish, malts, apple, barnyard, cider. Taste: soft to medium carboration. Soft sourish with hints of apple. A pretty malty feeling in the back of my throat. Warm alcoholic feeling. Acidity. Slightly bitter. Very good this one!!!

Cette cration est la preuve que lacidit peut tre mise au service de lamertume pour donner toute sa splendeur une bire. La Westoek XX prsente une robe ambre, opaque, une fine effervescence, et une mousse blanc crme, initialement de 0,5 cm pour retomber rapidement. Le nez est acidul sur des notes florales, dagrumes et de rsineux. La premire attaque est soyeuse, sur le malt et le caramel. Ensuite, arrive une splendide explosion de fracheur avec une amertume aux couleurs de bl, de pommes, dananas et de pin. En arrire bouche, lacidit est prsente et permet en finale de laisser des armes de cranberry saffirmer, et surtout, en se mlant lamertume, de donner une belle longueur. En conclusion, la Westoek XX se permet dallier fracheur, complexit et longueur avec une homognit et un quilibre sans faute. Pour tre perfectionniste, une corpulence un peu plus affirme nous ferait atteindre le firmament.

Cristobal37 (848) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2016
Mild sour yeast aroma. Immediately a bit tart but not abrasive. Palate is bubblegum, pineapple, silky body. With this one I can enjoy the funk because its like a fine soft cheese, not like other straight up vinegar sour beers. Enjoyable, but Im still not interested in these funky brett science project beers. This one is at least somewhat enjoyable and not a full scale bacterial attack on the palate.

Vaikka avasin korkin vain osittain ja hyvin varovasti, olut ryppy lasin ja korkin vlist todella voimakkaasti ulos lattialle ja pydlle sek lopulta tiskialtaaseen. Kun kuohonta lopulta rauhoittuu, j pulloon ehk noin kolmasosa alkuperisest mrst. No, ei auta. Samea likaisenruskea olut. Tuoksu belgihiivainen, hapan. Maultaan hapan, omenainen, melko kuiva.

alteregoo (1074) - POLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Piana wysoka, nieco mydlana, ale trwała, gushing przy otwieraniu. Barwa żłta, mocno mętna. Aromat estrowy, lekko fenolowy i mocno dziki, przyjemny. W smaku pikantne, lekko kwaskowe, sporo nut starego siana, skry, zepsutych brzoskwiń. Agresywna goryczka o chemicznym, sztucznym profilu, wysokie nagazowanie...
Wszystko wskazuje, że piwo się po prostu zepsuło, a mimo to jest dość ciekawe. Na dłuższą jednak metę męczy, trudno dopić...

VDuquerroux (1328) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A orange-yellow hazy beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention. Light wood, apple, barnyard, roast, herbal notes. Medium sweet, warming touch, light dry lasting sour, medium bitter, light fresh windy. Good body, average texture, average good carbonation, sweet fruity acid dry finish. Overall, a great wild strong belgian ale.

SkillsFactory (593) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2016
Lotto 191003042014, best before 05/2019, aperta l'11 giugno 2016. Dorata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianca fine e di buona persistenza. In prima battuta aroma di Brettanomyces, metallica, successivamente erbaceo pungente, chiodi di garofano, mela verde, leggero stallatico, leggerissimo miele, acidula. Al palato acidula, miele, Brett, mela verde, finale erbaceo e paglierino accompagnato da una lieve coda acidula. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero, texture leggermente oleosa. Assomiglia ad un blend tra una Tripel ed un Lambic.
