Gedronken in Oud Brabant, pils kleur en helemaal helder, pluspunten, ik had hem hoppig verwacht maar helaas. Nie vies maar ook nie lekker

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pale golden colour. Aroma of grassy hops, hints of urine. Grassy hops in the flavour too, and not much more. Whatever they have tried to do here, it was not very succesful.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, ombord på Fridtjofen april-14: hekkan, dette lukter ikke godt. Baby pooh sier Gunnar. Definitivt ikke en aroma som inviterer til konsum. Vi går på med krum hals, men det nytter ikke - denne havner over relingen, selv om det smaker bedre enn det lukter.

Small shared bottle courtesy of Holmen1. White head on a clear golden body. Old piss filled diaper and berries on the nose. Repulsive. Makes me not want to taste the beer. Lemon peel bitter, vegetal flavors. Medium bodied.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours light hazed golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of acidic baby poo. Taste better than suggested by the smell, dry hoppy, grass and herbs, mixed with a overall too sweet, almost cloying malty body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 l bottle, bought at a dutch Mitra somewhere in the provincie Groningen. Pale golden and nearly clear in the glass, low carbonated, small short living white head. A little bit fruity and like almonds on the nose. Starts hopy herb fruity, mid bitterness. Herb peaches, yeast and vanilla. Typical belgian beer with a small dosis more hop. Not bad but nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost clear orange body with a scarce white head. Nose has bitter herbs, hay and grassy earthy notes. Taste is clean and bitter with a dry finish. Carbonation is lively and palate is average. Pretty simple and straight forward.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Earth House, Ko Tao, Thailand. Was nice to find some Kasteel I hadn’t had here. Not sure if this is their version of an American IPA or what not, but it was heavy and thick on the grapefruit malt and hop, bitter, yet very round and wet. Hoppy enough, but being from the NW of course I could obviously use a blast for something called ’hoppy’. Good stuff though, thick!
