Kr1zz (261) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle procured from Geers in Oostakker. Houston, we have a gusher. Pours clear orange with lot’s of spices floating around. Big dark white head leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Well carbonated. Nose: fresh hops, pepper, malts, notes of fruit, cookie dough. Taste: waterish in the beginning with notes of fruit, than peppery with a hint of cookie dough and malts. Very dry and bitter aftertaste. Lot’s of flavour for such a low alcoholic beer.

ruigo (1622) - PORTUGAL - APR 3, 2015
33cl bottle. Clouded orangish colour with a massive white head. Spices, hops, apricots and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more sweet at start with some fruity notes but gets more bitter towards the finish with some citric notes. Overall, a fairly nice beer.

BlackHaddock (4978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
330ml bottle: poured into a ’Leffe’ chalice on 6th Mar 2015. Shared with no one. Sadly a gusher, third of the bottle came out and the glass filled with foam and a bit of beer, clear and golden, as the brew calmed down I poured in more, each time it became a little darker in colour and cloudier (no surprises there then). Yeasty nose, with a malty base, the hop content not arriving until the flavours arrived late on in the taste. Actually the huge head had a mega hop flavour and once the beer settled it seemed more hoppy than malty in nature. Classed by someone as a ’California Common’, I wouldn’t know, but I really enjoyed the beer even though the initial pour rushed out the bottle, the sediment/grisp adding to the depth of flavour and enjoyment.

McWorta (999) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 1, 2015
Orange in colour with yeast flocculation and a massive rocky dark white head. Aromas of bready, toasted white bread with grassy caramel hay notes arise. Light livelyness with a soft bit thin texture and a light-medium body. Ligt earthy, grassy and basement grain flavours. A touch of sweetness with a noticeable hoppy bitterness offering a medium finish.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 22 Oct 2014) Amber colour with dense, off-white head. Malty nose with bread, toast, apricots, grainy malt and hints of hazel nuts. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of apricots, toast, crisp-bread and a growing citric bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, quite dry. Well made and tasty. Nice one.

Thanks ! Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Amber, big bubbly white head. Strong iron nose with caramel & light biscuit; Taste is weird herbal bitterness, iron, biscuit, caramel, metallic, caramel; Light, cold & metal body. Too much metal / iron. Okay but not really my thing.

kraddel (4592) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2014
Tap @ cml fontainas Pours rather clear , between blonde and amber . Rather small shite head , that is very stable and fluffy . Smell is malty , and a tad sweet . Some caramelized character as well . Taste is bitter , malty , flowery / potpurri sidenotes . Bit perfumy . Weird , unique beer that is not totally my taste but does stand out

corkyrory66 (929) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2014
Bière ambrée de 4,6 % abv, qualifiée par ratebeer de « california common » et par son brasseur de « steam beer »…. Je vous laisse choisir .. on ne va pas se battre pour si peu !! Elle est brassée chez Ste Hélène en gaume par les autres gaumais du lion emplumé. Ils ont utilisé du houblon perle et une levure des white labs de Frisco Lager. Jolie étiquette à l’américaine, avec moultes inscriptions et graffitis… Couleur abricot pêche très jolie, avec pas mal de levure qui forme un voile (vu l’énorme dégazage à l’ouverture). Les bulles sont mortes sur le coup. Mousse beige clair à gros flocons, volume énorme, avec du blanc d’oeuf par la suite. Arômes d’agrumes, fruits blancs, croûte de pain gris, pointe légère de fumée. 1ère bouche douce à liquide avec une prise sur les fruits blancs, du tabac blond et une toute légère fumée. Arrière-bouche avec un joli houblon amer et pourtant aromatique (le Perle .. qui est une perle !!). 2ème bouche douce, fine, fruitée et amère en même temps (mais il y a des fruits amers …). Arrière-bouche très agréable. 3ème sur un superbe ensemble d’agrumes et houblons. Arrière-bouche agréable, fine, sans défaut, longue. La longueur donne des fruits blancs, du malt blanc un peu grillé. Très grand équilibre, même si l’amertume est mise en avant … (l’un n’empêche pas l’autre …). La levure est douce, fine, parfaite. L’alcool est bizarrement suffisant et efficace, comme quoi chaque genre a ses exigences … La finale ne laisse pas les californiens indifférents (Que dis-je?). CONCLUSION : une bière à la fois originale, fraîche, belle, fine, fruitée et d’une belle amertume. Que demande le lion ?? Une belle cote ...
