Borresteijn (4864) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, labeled as Schieve Tabarnak #2, ABV 6.3%. Slightly hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, some alcohol, malts, light fruity, grassy hops, reminds me of a good tripel. Flavour is medium sweet, light floral, malty, yeasty, light fruity, some honey, firm grassy bitter finish with some alcohol bite. Medium-bodied. Good.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
(Bottled) Murky golden with a medium, firm head. Spicy nose with coriander and ginger, herby hops, and caramely and pale maltiness. Flavor is herby-hoppy with coriander spiciness and a very dry, long finish. Medium body, fizzy CO2, reasonably refreshing. Something like Saison Dupont with more hops and spices, different yeast, and evend drier finish. Quite nice as such, although I prefer more fruity ones. 2645

solidfunk (4323) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours clear blond. Very bitter. There’s not much here besides bitterness though. Hops profile doesn’t have a lot of body other than the bitter. Palate is pretty simple. Not bad.

Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow to golden colour with a small white head. Smells banana, weizener, yeasty. Tastes grassy, some hops and some pineapple. Quite a refreshing beer. Doesn?t taste like the way it smells. Nice carbo, medium body and a bit dry.

jaghana (4091) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 17, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper beer with good head. Nose is hopy and malty, the aroma is very malty with malt, buckwheat and grain notes, very nice hops bouquet on grass, lemon and pepper, very long bitter aftertaste. Again a good beer from this brewery.

erickok (3755) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2014
Fruity aroma, pine apple, tropical, biscuit malts though and interesting yeast. Well developed, light sweet, full mouth feel. Not very bitter. Smooth and drinkable, not quite the freshness I wanted in the aroma. Another high quality brew from these guys! (Sample at Nüetnigenough)
