skortila (5341) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottled. 15cl sample. The Aroma has coriander, grain, dust. Big time gusher, murky brown coloured beer with a big off-white head. Lots of big particles floating around. Appearance is just ugly. Coriander, bit citric, very yeasty and unbalanced.

RW80 (2051) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
33cl bottle shared. Opening with a huge gusher (in addition one popped open in the store near the desk.) The end result was there was a half bottle to share. Appearance:Hazy yellow with white head. Aroma: Saison like yeast and light citrus orange peel tones, some spicey koriander and herbal notes. Taste: Following the aroma + with fruity tones .medium sweet and with a Light biterness medium body, average carbonation. Not a classic white, with it’s fruityness, but more of white with a little Saison twist. The Gusher is however that bad that it’s costing a full point.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is herbal, spicy and fruity with caramel and a candy like note. Flavour starts malty with a hint of spices, then some citrussy tangy notes, a light hop bitterness, quite herbal. Nice.

Had one lukewarm mouthfull of this one. The cap popped off in my car and most of the content gushed out. It was in a box with some other beers that did not object to my driving. Will have to re-rate someday.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottled from Lekker Bier, 6% ABV, BB 09 2015, large sample, served in a shaker. Hazy yellow to golden color, huge frothy white head. Aroma is spicy, wheat, citrus, lemon, slight peppery. Bit bitter in taste, slight spicy again, bit dry. Citrussy as well. Quite bitter for a belgian white and not as much citrus as sometimes can be seen. Also, it lacks a bit that slight sourness common to belgian whites, although its there in the finish a bit. Carbonation is a bit on the high side, which makes it a bit dry on the palate.

PotjeBier (2747) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2013
33 cl bottle from bierkoning’s box of Eastern Dutch goodies - thanks Edo! Opens with a loud pssh, but no gusher. Had to pour it in turns though, because a big (white) head was forming, but only short retention. Color is clear golden - until I poured the yeast in...Aroma’s: very refreshing, sweet fruits, soft sweet spices, a bit wheat & grain retronasal, orange peel. Flavor is lightly sweet, herbal, with a light bitterness. Medium bodied. Finishes with a moderate bitterness. No witbier in the classic sense, but refreshing and tasty enough.
