Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2013
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, small, a bit soapy white to off-white head. Smell malts, hops, lightly pine and a bit fruity. Taste malts, hops, lightly piney, bitter and slightly fruity. A bit thin, but it was poured very cold so that might have to do with it as well. Nice beer though.

Congratulations, Gordon, on finally getting your commercial venture up and running! Hopefully there will be many more.
Cloudy orange, large spongy head. Pleasant dy hopped bitter aroma. Slightly watery feel, decent carbonation. Bitter hop oriented taste, but a nice breadiness too. Very nicely drinkable, but a little fizzy ona cold winter’s day. Dry attenuation and bitterness in the finish.

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Golden color, hazy. Grapefruit, ripe melon and a hint of oily hops in the aroma. Thin, but also a firm almost medecinal grassy hopbitterness, pushing away the tropical fruit flavors. Very low on carbon.

Rune (11369) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
330ml bottle from Riga, kindly shared by Stefan & Elisabeth. Concrete, rocky white head remaining over an unclear, apricot coloured body. Fair lacing. Nice succulent aroma of sweet oranges. Taste of grassy, floral hops followed by citrus shells towards a dry, bitter end. Foamy in the mouth. A pleasant surprise (Tromsø, 04.04.2013).

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap at Alehouse, Riga. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with malt and hints of caramel and berries. Moderate sweet and fruity with balanced bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Mild and refreshing pale ale.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is yeasty fruit, some orange pudding. Flavour is quite young with a grassy fruity herbal hop note. Quite bitter. Too young or just not my thing.

MrHangover (4020) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Flat pour, no head at all.. Aroma has hoppy influences, but nothing extraordinary present. Flavour is medium bitter, no carbonation at all, very flat and watery mouthfeel.. Not good...
