Countbeer (4327) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing Abijen: Medium to smaller sized off white head that changes pretty quick into a lacing on top of a murky muddy light brown colored beer. Aroma of fruit, flowers, perfume, porridge, grains, peach and incense. Flavours of flowers, fruits, hay, peach, banana, yeast, some malts, herbs, bitter and light spicy. Aftertaste of yeast, hay, malts and bitter. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. Mediocre and a bit unbalanced.

bartlebier (1560) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2013
33cl trade at ZBF 2013. Brewed Oct2012. Apparently exclusive brew for Heeren v Liedekercke, strangely by Boelens... Dubbel-brown Belgian ale with Interesting complexity: an Oud Bruin/traces of geuze buried beneath a dry abbey-style dark ale: notes of roasted and chocolate malt, some fruit and figs and a shy Rodenbach sourness. Easy drinking for a hard-to-grasp blend.

Abijen (1403) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Pours an amber brown beer with a good white head. Smells like a hoppy pilsner. The taste is boring.
