Coming from a weak beer, this one is easily better. The aroma is there, bit reminds me of a farm or something, ence I cannot say a enjoyed it. For the taste, there is a small evolution starting with an acidic touch, and the result (wasn’t able to describe it) stays a bit on the palate. As my friend said, it’s a good small beer, but not extraordinary.

Light acid whiff. Gentle farmhouse - saison ale start. Lively carbonation. Tongue sticking finish.

Arôme de ferme. Très pétillante, elle se rapproche d’une saison. Elle évolue fort en bouche. arrière goût très faible

RW80 (1105) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
Appearance: Dark amber with a soapy beige head. Aroma: sweet, light malts, some fruit and sugar in the back TasteL. lightly acidic, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light bitter dry finish. With some light malts, a bit of spicey yeast and some overripe fruit. thin body, average caronation. Well a bit boring. It might be classicall, but this just taste very old school in non great way.

33cl bottle at home. Pale dark orange with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with low to medium carbonation. Medium bitterness with light sweetness. Caramel, malt, some funkiness, herbs, heast and citrus. A redrshing but not too ’special’ brew.

Dark yellow, slightly hazy. Thin head, not lasting. Malty, dry, not far from a bière de garde.

Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2014
Another very old-fashioned ale which was originally only locally available - and still has a low profile today, though it remains one of Ann De Ryck’s most familiar beers in Flanders. Tasted from tap and vintage from a bottle. A light, soft, orange blond session beer with a gentle character, malt sweetness, clear yeastiness and mild hop bitterness in the finish. Very straightforward but a bit different and very thirst-quenching.

Icedwarf (572) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Licht bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, licht rokerig en licht zuur. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.
