Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and has a small white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty with tones of grains and some sour fruits. The taste is fruity and light sour and in the end a little hop bitterness is noticable. The finish is light dry, sour and refreshing.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Murky toffee colour with a white ring. Fruity aroma with some toffee, slightly worty but all in all very faint. Bitter taste but also a little worty. Light-to-medium body, sweetish finish and quite carbonated.

330 ml bottle at home. Pours light amber. Metally aroma, some light pale malts. Light body, watery and metally. Refreshing light sour taste, but not really a lot of character...

Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is grain and sour smell. Okay. The taste is mild grain sweetness and some lemon bitterness. The texture is crisp but too fizzy. It’s okay.

Aroma is honey, malt, herbs. Taste is sweet malts up front with a little bitterness on the finish. Not sure why this gets such low ratings.

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.
