diabel (1645) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2008
Bottled at ZBF 2008, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium
Muddy amber body with a rocky, creamy off-white/lightly brown head. Nicely balanced aroma of flowers, hops, sweet malts. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour of malts and cane sugar. Well balanced, nice beer but not too complex.

ekstedt (6168) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 <i>From a 75 cl bottle at Zythos beer festival 2008</i>. Cloudy amber with a medium beige head. Roasted, nutty, and fudgy malts interplay nicely with earthy and herbal hops. Medium bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Quite dry with a lovely long and mildly bitter finish.

Sometimes you find breweries whose house character seems to be made just for you. That’s Glazen Toren for me. Farmy, mildly bitter beers that tend to go bone dry on you... love it. This one, sampled at ZBF, is slightly hazy brown color whose beige head has picture-perfect lacing and lasting height. Nose is full of dark fruit, overripe apples, caramel malt. There’s initial fruity sweetness before the flavor twists and turns rapidly through roasted malt and into hoppy, spidery, cobwebbed dryness. Parches you mouth for another sip.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2008
Draught Amber head, fast disappearing over chestnut beer with noise shine. Fruity, estery, fresh greenery & greenmalt. Greenmalt & chocolate malt (strange combination...) Lots of chocolate in the main taste with a spicy, coffee-like lining. Bit burning MF. Medium to well-bodied, some alcohol. Note bad, but a bit undirected beer, could swing out any way.
