sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2012
Draft @ Delirium Brussels. Dorée claire, léger col blanc. Arôme bien agrémenté de plantes aromatiques surtout le thym qui se fait bien présent, pointe d’ail le tout sur ce bouquet très belge. En bouche, épais, profile rappelant un peu le miel le tout avec un palais mettant bien en avant ce côté plante herbacée donnant de ce fait un profile légèrement épicé en fin de bouche. Au final, une bière qui brille pas ce côté d’ajout d’herbes sans quoi on se retrouve avec une blonde des plus typiques.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
The looks are not bad. Golden beer with a good sized and decent holding head. Not totally my taste, spiced, a less pleasant yeast, some dry fruits.

BlackHaddock (5860) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
This 0.75 Litre cork and caged bottle was taken at the lovely bar/tasting room of D’elices Et Caprices in Brussels during Dec 2011. The brew is based on the regular Jessenhofke (which has garlic in it) and has extra spices added to those already in the base beer: all the spices are listed on the back label. Our glasses held a slightly hazy body of orange coloured beer, on top a well formed but thin white head, the third pour was a bit cloudier as the sediment left the bottle with the remaining beer. The aroma was an interesting mix of yeasts, herbs and a sweet smell from the malts and other spices used. The taste is a good blend of flavours, sweet and yet semi-bitter, fruity, herbal and earthy, all at the same time. It isn’t bold or brash; more of a subtle, gentle feel to the taste and mouth feel. Carbonisation was just about right and suited the beer nicely. I had another bottle on New Years Eve and found it just as pleasant as the one I reviewed when in Brussels.

Martinus (4362) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Pale orange beer, white head. Aroma very herbal, dried herbs, meatballs, vegetables, oregano. Light wet dog. Light sweet malty flavour, very herbal again, similar to the aroma. Not my favourite.
(Tasting glass from bottle @ 5th BBF, Brugge 2012)
