On va enfin roter du houblon en belgique ! Wouhouhouhou ! C’est amer et ca reste bien amer. C’est ambré c’est houblonné c’est frais c’est léger. C’est parfait.

This might be a perfect beer. Pouring a beautiful darker gold, of course it’s unfiltered beauty in a glass. Great lacing, great head retention. Dry, hop bitterness while still being incredibly drinkable. Had one sip, I’ll be drinking this all day.

Bevuta al Ma che siete venuti a fa, raramente mi è capitato di gustarmi una birra tanto dissetante ed equilibrata.

Very nice amber beer. Tasted at the hand pump. Not saturated. She has a nice refreshing bitterness.

A gorgeous, bitter and refreshing piece of work best enjoyed in large quantities. From a beer engine with a sparkler at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, drunk by the half-liter. Deep orange color with earthy, spicy, dry-grassy hop nose and zesty yeast notes. Rather bitter and dry, with a very light impression of sweetness from the malt. A firm bitterness but classy hop selection keeps it smooth, avoiding resin, promoting further drinking. A beer for thirsty people.

The idea of session beers as a whole is something that I find to be silly and limiting. That, because there exists a menagerie of beers that are full bodied, flavorful, and low abv. The category, "Session Beers," limits low abv beers, because a lot of people think that low gravity means weak bodied, watery beers. This is simply not the case. Band of Brothers is one that leads the way in proving beer lovers wrong about reasonably alcoholic beers. It is very hoppy (seemingly piny American hops), with a bready malt character, but light in the finish, quickly fading off the palate. An excellent brew that is very approachable for both beer lovers and those that are new to beer in general.

A Belgian beer I haven’t had, served in the US of A? In proper glassware? Holy cow! What’s going on? Oh wait, I must be at Armsby abbey. Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, huge white head with good retention and solid lacinf. Aroma of raw rising bread dough. Taste is peppery sourdough bread, very yeasty, citrus, bitter straw finish. Absolutely classic.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2015 Draught @ Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Pours cloudy golden with a fluffy head. Yeast, fruit, hops and mild pepper. Dry and bitter finish. Low carbonation. Good.
Rerate October 15 , Moeder Lambic:
Fruity, dry, freshly baked bread, mild but good yeast, hoppy finish. Insanely drinkable. 3,7-4,2

Tap at Moeder Lambic! Holy jebus! Biggest surprise of the day! So crisp and clean, full of taste, hoppy, citrus, bit tart. I can’t believe this.
