KansaiBeerLvrs (3554) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
Glass at In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst, the De troch 03/2014 was a honey gold with a tart lemon aroma. Med-full bodied with a slick mouthfeel. The taste is tart acidic lemon with some cork. Tasty, easy sipping.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2015
Draft at In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst, where it was recommended to me and my company after the masses had left the premises - cheers to Kurt Panneels for this, one of the proprietors of this renowned lambic pub. Shows a few loose bubbles of air but these expectedly vanish in instants, leaving a flat, light orange golden blonde beer, clear with a fine and airy ’dust’ of yeast suspended in it. The expected estery and animalistic, rural complexity of old lambic rises up from the glass: menure but in a good way, passionfruit, fermenting mango and gooseberry, dry sherry, sour milk, wet wood, yoghurt, artisanal cider, horse sweat. Dry sour flavour, with a kind of ’sedate’ lemon zest ’zing’ to it, sour cream, smooth, very fruity, sweetish barley somewhere, soft but drying woody tannins in the finish, with strongly persisting sourness. I had to take an antacid pill after this one - and seven others - but it was worth the pain, glad I tasted this.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2015
5L jug (Lambiek 01/2014) from source, post TdG. Very basic and rough, but honest in line with its rural basic courtyard surroundings: dirty pediococcus funk, lactic and some acetic acid in the nose, mainly sour green apple and white balsamico in taste. Meaty mouthfeel. Bit harsh on the stomache in pure thirstquenching doses, but good sour mixer for summer radlers - which is basically De Troch’s own Chapeau brand. Serve well-chilled and to the not-so-squeamish.

kermis (8062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to Caesar. Pours hazy golden with a ring white head. Aroma is light funky, a little urine, citrus, a little dank. Flavour is light acidic, a strange meaty touch coming out in the palate. Light to medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Maakun (2028) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
At WWT tasting thanks to Ceasar. Clear straw with very small white head. Sulphur up front, but it fades a bit after a while luckily. Urine, musty grains, old wood, hay. Light sour and dry feel with light body. Maybe it sat too long in the bottle but still not bad.
