Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Tasted in the Tubize version, but apparently first brewed at the ’Proef’brouwerij. Sticky, off-white, stable head, colour a dirty ochre blonde. Yeasty and bready aroma with green apple, orange zest, sweat, old cheese and - less appealing of all - clear H2S (rotten egg). Simple taste of restricted fruitiness, bready, light orange touch, bit powdery mouthfeel, finishing in a mild grassy hoppiness but not enough so to balance and therefore a bit watery. Totally unnecessary and even flawed beer, I hope they’ll come up with something better than this.

Trappist1 (586) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2013
Licht blond van kleur, heel mat maar mooie kraag. Meer een combinatie tussen een wit bier en een blond bier, maar mooi resultaat. Wat hop in de neus, verder fruitige hint, licht zoetige toets in afdronk,beperkte nasmaak. Overall mooi lekker correct bier.

Blonde légèrement trouble, effervescence moyenne, col fin peu persistant. Plutôt maltée d’entrée pour ensuite développer une bonne petite amertume un rien épicée. Agréable...

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2012
Draught at Little Delirium, Brussels. Yellow, hazy beer with a big offwhite head. Fruity and hoppy aroma and flavour. A refreshing nice beer :-)

rlgk (11555) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
Draught at Little Delirium, Brussels. Malty bready aroma, yeasty notes. Bready sourish flavor, some yeast. More like a lager, not much flavors at all. Kinda clean and drinkable, though.

1/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle as ’Betchard Tubize’ @ De Heeren van Liedekercke - BB: 14/II/14 (2012-567)

Note:According to Joost from DHVL this is from a small brewery in Tubize. Not sure though, since I can’t find anything about it online. So I’ll just enter it under this entry.
Clear blond beer, big solid creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty yeasty, grassy hops, spices, bit dry, dusty, citrus peel, slightly peppery. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: pretty fruity start, citrus fruits, peaches, little sweet, very fresh and fruity. Aftertaste: peaches, little bit of yeast, grassy bitterness, yet soft, some citrus.

Swaroga (1481) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2012
33cl bottle. Yellow / orange with low to medium white head. Nose : yeast , wet laundry, banana, citrus, spices, cake. Sip : Creamy brew with low carbonation. Sweet and little dry. Develops well hopped bitterness on the end. It’s not strong , still is an honest one. Overall it’s a refreshing and easy to swallow liquid with a well balanced flavors. My choice for a refreshing drink in the garden.
