UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Superbe couleur orange foncé; arômes et goût fruités et épicés; un leu d’acidité; bel équilibre entre douceur et amertume; la finale manque un peu de longueur; bonne bière

This beer has a nice taste of hop, not the taste like an I.P.a but at the beginning is nice after the taste is the mouth a bit disappointed and it is missing a lack of carbonation. The colour us like an I.P.A copper but trouble. I think that "la voisine" of trois dames is better.

Benzai (11358) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle [from trade with CH-303] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Slightly unclear dark orange to reddish color, small to average sized off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts and lightly fruity. Taste lightly malts, lightly a hint of fruitpeel. Hard to describe. Does not taste like any Altbier I know. Drinkable though.

Marcius (360) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Amber / brown color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Hoppy aroma (floral and resin). Taste - Bitter and a bit sweet. On the palate it has a full body and long finish.

DutchDrebus (5109) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle @ benzai. Hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. Smells perfume, fruity, sweet, slightly hop. Tastes malts, caramel, hops, slightly fruity, slightly salty and wheat. Wouldn’t have guessed this is an altbier. Medium body, soft carbo, nice

330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a tiny off-white head. Nose of citrus and sweet malts. Taste is quite sour and buttery. Finishes off with a medium hoppy bitterness. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (9153) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB J/2016. 4.5%. From a trade with CH-303. Thanks Asbjørn! Clear amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Fruity hops, mild sourness, sweet malt and some berries in the aroma. Nice! The flavour is disappointing after the aroma. Malt, yeast and bread. Blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, 4.5%. The aroma starts off citric, almost sour. Turns more citric, hoppy. Cloudy amber colour. OK white head. The flavour is moldy with a good Brett note. Not as citric as many other Brett beers, but with a good funky note. Other than that, it is fairly straightforward, even simple. But all in all good.

SaintBonchien (9) - Sonceboz, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2015 does not count
Ma bière classique de BFM favorite ! Cuivrée voilée avec une mousse assez pauvre, arôme assez fort et vif, notes de caramel, épices et un peu fruité, voire acidulé. Saveur franche, équilibre parfait entre douceur et amertume, corps moyen, pétillant et sirupeux. Finale assez persistante, moyennement intense et portée sur l’amer.
