Borresteijn (4572) - Amsterdam, - NOV 20, 2012
30cl Bottle from an EKO-shop. Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma is light sour and malty, toasted malts, light grassy hops, light caramel. Flavour is toasted malts, light tart fruits, bitter nuts, hint of caramel, grassy hoppy bitter finish. Light-bodied, a bit watery mouthfeel at times. Lacks just a bit of body, but itís fortunately not as sweet as most Belgian ambers. This was more like an Alt imo.

30cl @ home from Mitra. Hazy deep amber color, minimal creamy off-white head with good lacing. Aroma is moderated malty, caramel, moderated herbs, slightly roasted. Taste light to medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness, slightly salty. Light to medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, average bittersweet finish. Easy refreshing beer.

It has the amber look, but lacks some foam and freshness. Itís watery with some sour fruit (cherry?), malts and yeast. Just a boring beer.

Bottle. Relaxing at my friendís place in maastricht. First time Iíbe been alone in 11 days. I needed this break. Hazed brown red pour with a small light tan head. I smell cherries and a touch of caramel. Had a westy 12 at the bar last night that was cool. Need to adjust my ratings as rochefort wa much better. This is a bit watery. Light sweetness with a good clean hop finish. Needs more body and sweetness, but is a decent enough companion to some charcuterie I am munching on.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Troche sie zawiodlem na tym piwie. Ekologiczne uprawy, i ekologiczne piwo. Ale delikatnie gryzace w podniebienie, niewielka piana i zbyt mocne nagazowanie, w ale to niespotykane. Spora dawka lekko prazonego karmelu. Orzechowy finisz.

Very malty aroma, nice bitterness, bit lacking of big tastes. All in all not bad, but will not buy again. Probably.

skortila (4436) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma is caramelly, bit grainy and quite weak. Clear, amber coloured beer with a thin off-white head. The taste is sweetish, caramelic, bit grainy. Not much going on. Slightly sticky in the end, but overall quite dry. Light bodied. Though I have sympathy for this small big brewer trying to hold ground between the big guys, this beer is just a bit too boring.
