Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
Itís time for Euro2012, and this time Iím starting it off with this bottle kindly provided by BelgBeerGeek. Thanks man! 0.33l bottle thatís slowly but consistently expanding by itself out of the bottle. When the massive fluffy off-white head has calmed a bit down, I can see that this one has a quite delicate but heavy murky glowing orange body with some big dark floaters at the bottom of the glass. It smells kinda Belgian with that lovely fruity yeast, sweet malts and some tones of forest, but itís also quite hoppy. Not so much fruity hoppy, more bitter hoppy Quite nice. It lacks a bit in the depth, in other words a bit thin in the body with a light oily texture and itís lively carbonated. Flavors are quite dry with lots of references to red berries and soft fruits. A bit stingy-hoppy as well, and I get tones of dry cones when drinking this. Definitely an interesting one this, and a great beer to kick of the Euro2012. 08.06.2012

Strange ale. Very very bitter, and a long aftertaste. But itís only bitterness, no other flavours. Even a bit watery.

Swaroga (1954) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2012
0.5cl bottle. Hazy orange , light amber. The head ... letís put it this way; the bottle exploded and spoiled almost half of my beer on the floor. While pouring it into a glass, the head is big but it goes down quickly. Nose ; fresh and strong aromas overall. Fruity orange, some plum and the a dry aroma that reminds me Lambic. Little tart. Sip ; low density body with still lively carbonation. Itís quite dry from the start with distingtive hop bitterness on the end. It leave a dry spicy taste on the tongue. Strong spicy beer with dominating clove. Overall it is a very rich beer and amazingly full for the low alcohol.

Fin (9214) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Bottle at NŁetnigenough, Brussels, Belgium Saturday 28th April 2012 Hazy amber in colour with a white head. Quite like a British bitter, in its eminent quaffability, nice bitterness and low abv. Touch thin at times but the nice grapefruit fruity qualities kept me interested until the last glug. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3

Agradable bitter de baixa graduaciů. Amb la justa cremositat, amargor i postgust. Molt recomenable per combatre la calor.

gEUS (1677) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2012
33 cl bottle - pours hazy beige-yellow, foam gushing out og the bottle and head is persisting in the glass. The nose is a lot of "ít putteke" (letís say very earthy and raw aromas) with some fruitiness (pineapple). Light body with decent carbonation - fresh taste al over with nice bitterness in the end. ALthough very strange in the nose, this is yet acceptable given the low ABV.

rand (1470) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle 33 cl from Willems - Grobbendonk (B). Golden amber with huge white foam, completely decorating the glass with laces, dull crackling. Sour flavors, lactic yeast, malt, hop-citrus, fruit-rhubarb. The taste is well bitter, dry, malted, grain, yeast and earthy and grapefruit hops. Slightly thinnish. Long finale, dry on the bitterness.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - FEB 25, 2012
(33 cl bottle) Gushes out of the bottle, with a yellowish, light amber colour with a very big, foamy white head. Very cloudy. Zesty, grapefruity, a little soapy or medicinal hop aroma. Medium bitter taste. Judging from the wild-yeasty impression on the nose, I expected it to be a little sour as well, but there is none of that. Has a lot of aroma considering the only 3.8 % alcohol. Hops spread nicely on the roof of my mouth. Still a little watery in the middle. Dry finish.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2012
(Bottled) How surprising - a gusher... Pours murky orange with a medium, frothy head. Very nice, Orval-like, wild-yeasty nose with grassy-herby hops. Flavor is herby-aromatic yeasty, lightly tart. Light to medium body, high and foamy CO2. A pleasant brew for such a low ABV, but Alvinne seriously needs to fix their CO2 levels. 2554
