anstei (1011) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle on Lesbos from a supermarket. Clearly identifiable as Belgian, yet not in a super clear way. Banana, citrus, some spices, surprisingly hoppy. Lively but soft carbonation, smooth and round indeed. Medium body, slightly oily, decent and very late bitterness. Okay.

R4N5H (719) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
33cl bottle at Undercurrent, Amsterdam on 19-May-2016, poured into an Affligem stemmed tulip glass. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized thick white head. Aroma of malt, yeast and sweet fruit. Medium body and carbonation. A sticky and slightly sweet fruity bread taste. A nice hoppy balance with a light bitter finish. Nice Belgian style ale - not as heavy in alcohol as some of its peers, but tasty nonetheless.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - MAY 19, 2016
Au nez de jolis arômes cirtronnés avec une pointe de houblon. Quelques épices, fruits, agrumes , un coté miel. En bouche c’est court et la finale est assez ordinaire.

R2k2 (449) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
A slightly cloudy, slightly yellow beer with a compact, firm layer of foam. It has a sharp aroma from hops, bitterness, and the hint of alcohol. It tastes a bit like licorice, but this doesn’t fill the entire mouth. Unfortunately, also not much of an aftertaste. Een licht troebel bier met een compacte, stevige kraag. Een scherp aroma van hop, bitterheid en een hint van alcohol. De smaak is enigszins drop achtig, maar dit vult niet de gehele mond. Helaas ook niet veel nasmaak.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
