2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
3/IV/14 - straight from the oaken foeders @ Bockor foederzaal (Bellegem) during TV recordings for Vlaanderen Vakantieland - BB: n/a (2014-326) Thanks to Alex for the sample!
Pretty cloudy orange to beige beer, no head, some white chunks floating on top of the beer though. Aroma: very funky, sweet, bit musty and a little dirty. MF: still very thick and chewy texture. As they put the wort in the barrels here and not an already fermented beer like at Rodenbach, so re-fermentation is a very slow process here. Taste: a slight acidity, mainly funky and a sweet grainy touch, since it’s still fermenting.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Hay Merchant. Light, clear yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma and taste were extremely mild at this point with very little sourness or character of any kind. It’s more like slightly sour water. Thin.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Papago last week in tulip from memory because I lost my f’ing notes. Just tapped. Hazy opaque golden with dense tall white head. Mildly sweet tart lemon apricot floral aroma. Mildly tart apricot pineapple subtle sweetness with very nicely dry snappy yeasty floral finish. Very nice tight carbonation. I thought this was delicious. My wife did too.
