2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
De Vlier’s second, presented at beer festival "Van Baby tot Opa" near Leuven in 2009 and named after the fact that the brewers were born in 1969. Thin, quickly opening, milky foam, deep yellow blonde colour, misty. Sweaty aroma, some H2S unfortunately, otherwise apple, mango, peach, vanilla, smoked bacon and white bread. Soft apply taste, dry, pale malts, smooth, thin, even flat due to underachieving carbonation, very light hoppiness in the end ruined by the retronasal H2S. Obvious failure.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle @ WWT III. Hazy dark orange to amber color, small to medium sized bwige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste lightly malts, some sweetness, vanilla, chocolate. Weird that these flavors are in this beer. Weird beer I’d say. Maybe some herbs cause that? Medium body, a bit high carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ WWT III, courtesy of Benzai. Pours a clear amber with a small, white head on top. Aroma is spicey, Belgianny and yeasty. Fairly boring. Flavour is medium sweet, some cacao and has a dry, sweet finish. Quite boring and uninteresting to be honest.
