mathieuc (3318) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle from Le Projet. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is obviously belgian with some fruits and spices covered in sugary candi. Taste is of fruits (pears), peppery and lightly alcohol. Kind of like a low ABV tripel. Body is light, carbonation moderate. Overall a fine belgian ale, true to the TDD / De la Senne legacy.

[ Bottle ][ 6oz ][ @Tasting ][ $8 ][ Tulip ][ 04.07.15 ]
murky gold, huge white head, heavy lacing. White pepper nose that’s rooty, lightly doughy gum sweetness alongisde heavy dusty esters. Front palate bites with papery pepper, doughy wheat with minor ester sweetness. Mid growing dryer, zesty carb. Overall too much sweetness, needs more grain balance.

Keg @ CK, DC. Somewhat hazy medium gold pour with a small head. Aroma of pleasant orchard fruit esters. Peppered bread, pear juice. Delicate grass and dirty meadowland. Light perfume. Juicy pear and Apple tart with a very dry finish. Well-structured stuff. Medium body, subtle carb.

VertBaconStrips (2317) - Blerkablerka, NIUE - DEC 1, 2015
I drank half of it already. It was good enough to just enjoy but I guess notes are required to pad my status in my own mind. Wonderfully strange aroma that is quite perfumy with pears (dominant on occasion), papaya, faint funk, mellow peppery yeast that seems to be the glue here. The way this has changed I could just sit here and enjoy the aromas until the liquid in my glass evaporates. Tasting goes well and fast as this is incredibly drinkable. Grass, rrgf, white pepper, herbal things, unknown fruit as it is there yet everything else seems more important. a 750ml would have been so much better.

Saeglopur (1696) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 9, 2015
330 ml botle, bottled 28/07/15, from Firma Bier.
Copper, cloudy body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of yeast, flowers, sweet berries, dried fruits, some spices, grass.
Tastes of grass, hay, citrus, flowers, berries, yeast, some herbs, some spices.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, quite bitter, grassy, piney, a bit yeasty, a bit spicy, a bit herbal.

Very nice. Fresh and smooth, but fully aromatic and complex at the same time. Great balance between sweet, fruity, grassy and spicy notes. Really characterful, round Belgian Ale how I like it.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 14 Oct 2015) Pale amber colour, hazy, with frothy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of apricots, orange peel and spicy hints of yeast. Malty, hoppy taste with apricots, orange peel, a touch of resin, hints of yeast and a generous citric, resiny bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Really tasty, with a generous fresh hop character. Very nice.

Nez: Malté, herbacé, abricot, levure Bouche: Maltée, abricot, zeste d’orange, épicée, herbacée, belle amertume qui reste en bouche accompagnée d’une sécheresse Une très bonne bière mais vu le nom des 2 brasseries comment ça pouvait en être autrement ?
