Lightly hazy gold beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth, light and dry. Very mild fine carbonation. Very light gueuezy sourness balanced by mild sweet generic fruits. Little florlaness. Light finish. Mellow and drinkable.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
33cl bottle bb? courtesy of brewer @BBF 2014. Pours a bright peche melba with beautiful creamy whisps of foam. Immediate rich fruity fragracies ooze from the bottle upon opening: sweet and sour apricot, "confituurke" at a Belgian bakery, some sherry and wood. Taste is a piece of art in composition that well accomodates the added sugar and spice: after-dinner Peach liqueur on marinated biscuit dough, plus the delicate pungency of old hops, like a double, malt-heavier lambiek drenching a vanilla sponge cake. Very much a sour ale in this respect, with incredible presence of all tastes perfectly balanced at that, with both a rich and astringent aftertaste that leaves the mouth behind coated with a dessert. Big fan of this original brewery, its confident crossover styles and its labels.

TimE (3091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2014
slightly hazy golden amber color. Big sour, tart nose with oak, various spices and a bit of hoppiness. The mouth is very oaky buttery in the mouth that is a bit too much. I don’t think I like the oak, but slightly sour. Very strange taste, that I don’t necessary like. The finish is very oaky. i loved the nose on this, but after that, much less so.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Slight hazy yellow color, short to no head. Quite viscous. Aroma of loads of wine, grapes, slight barnyard and horseblanket, fruity notes like apricot. Like in between a wine and a gueuze. Slight sparkling. Bit sour in taste, bit sweet. I quite liked this one.

meerbier (1468) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle@Home. Funky, light tart aroma. Hazy, dark yellow, white head, good lace. Sweet, sour, bitter, funky. Sticky, tart mouth feel. Too much going on, especially the bitterness outbalances all.

mmahut (900) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2014
Light orange body with low head. Aroma is little bit cheesey, light caramel with a lot of sourness. Taste has bitter sourness upfront, following by light fruity acidity, but finishes very sour almost harsh. Over time, you can pick up the woody character, but for me this is pretty unbalanced. Pretty nice, but little bit off balance.
