3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl from Geers, shared with a sunflower pit crushing Vladimir on his ICE way through Koblenz. Bit of a gusher, almost coating the carriage... Ar) caramel "Tyskie" nose, quoth Vladimir. hayish with a sprinkling of modern hoppage. T) Hopforward and quite bitter with the fine herbal Perle, studded by thinner honeypop malts. P) Yeastier than a US steam beer or Kölsch, with some Belgian yeast astringency especially in the finish reinforcing hop bitters, rougher edges. Leaves a subtle leafy tingle. Reminded me of some Artzner beers. Overall well done, this première (?) of a Belgian California Common.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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
