Bottle. Honey color with large, stable foam head. Slightly murky. Aroma: fresh aroma of spring onion, cucumber, young cheese, soap, oily lacing (sardines?). Taste is a refreshing blend of grains, onion, hint of grass. A yeasty sweetness permeates. Bitter development. Not bad.

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - APR 18, 2015
Top-fermented spring Bock with frothy, rocky, thickly lacing, snow white head towering over a slightly hazy, deep golden blonde, clear beer with slow sparkling. Very ’Belgian’ aroma of red apple, honey, soap, freshly cut grass, cheese spread, sweet white grapes, overripe peaches, candied apricot, banana, powder sugar, some iron, white bread. Tastes sweet and sugary at first, fortunately not cloying too much, with a moderate fruitiness of peaches, banana and overripe pears, medium carbo, smooth and lean body, bready malt sweetness, dried apricot, honeyish even; finishes in the same malty sweetness, with a subdued grassy hoppiness for balance, but the sweetness remains, without becoming too sticky. Pretty straightforward, but a nice Bock to celebrate spring. Okay for its style, sweet and soft as expected from a spring Bock, but the soapy aroma is a bit much and I did expect more from this brewery, considering the great pieces of work they have come up with so far.

bierkoning (10830) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2015
Tap @ het Uurwerk Hengelo. Served too cold. Golden color. Maltaroma. Bready, distant fruit. Malty sweetish, floral soft citric flavor with a hint of pineapple. Decent but lacks depth.

Tap at Rootz at the Harbour. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is big yeast, creamy caramel and zesty citrus. The flavour is light bitter sweet with a light smooth sweet malt, fruity, biscuit palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Served cool, it’s a decent refreshing beer but a little too light for me.
