tderoeck (5030) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
19/X/14 - 75cl bottle @ Beuk’s postponed Firestone Walker and other nice beers allowed as well tasting (Brussels) - BB: n/a, batch I, NOV 2013 (2014-1226) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy grapefruit kind of pink coloured beer, aery white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: dirty, veal roast (or cooked veal), pretty off, some grapefruit. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: weird, sourish, hibiscus tea, little bitter, fruity touch, grapefruit bitterness. Aftertaste: bit metallic, banana peel, grapefruit skin, lemon rind, weird stuff, tea. Nope, nope, nope... And stop calling it a saison if you dump all sorts of weird stuff in it. This should be under vegetable/spice or fruit beer, if you ask me.

Idiosynkrasie (4020) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy, pinkish, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting and lacing, pinkish off-white head. Moderate, relatively "clean" bretty aroma, fruity hints of lime and hibiscus. Taste is slightly dry, minimally tart, bretty, notes of the lime and hibiscus ingredients. Nice, sober, engineer’d (more culture than nature, concerning yeast and everything else).
