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

Marstonlad (737) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a big frothy head - beautiful. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, grapefruit and apple - also some grainy maltiness in the background. Similar to saisons. Taste is light sweet initially, later becoming more bitter and sour. Hoppiness stays moderate despite the name; pale maltiness supports hops neatly. Flavours of grass, grain, herbs and lemon. Not much spiciness. The palate is medium-bodied and smooth, low to average in carbonation. Fairly malty in retrospect for an ale this pale.

Hermod (6255) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2016
33cl bottle. Poured golden color with a thick white head. Quite a malty Belgian ale. Floral hoppy, somewhat dry finish. Boring, not much happening in flavor.

Fules (670) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Szép átlátszó, borostyán színű, nagy tartós habbal. Illata finom fűszeres és citromos. Íze kesernyés, fűszeres, kis citromos mellékzöngével. Kicsit szénsavas, de nem zavaróan. Utóíze hosszú, és főleg kesernyés, de ott a citrom is a háttérben

BitchPls (746) - FINLAND - JUL 9, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 Clear and golden beer with a pure white foam. Quite an herbal aroma. I like the sourness and crispiness but the hops and bitterness are a little too earthy for me.

heavy (2665) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2016
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a hazy golden body with frothy and short living head, although it was big initially. Sweetish aroma, fruity and yeasty with touch of grassy hops. Light as a whole. Flavor was bitter, but also very balanced with lightly sweet vanilla malt. Bitterness was herbal and floral. Very highly carbonated, although still thin in body. Longer, lightly bitter finish. Not bad, just unimpressive, especially as a Belgian. Too thin.
