COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ne Goeien is Flemish for "A Good One." We’d like to think this beer is exactly that. When we invited Hildegard Van Ostaden from Urthel to come brew with us at Port Brewing, we hoped the collaboration of our brewers and her passion for brewing would result in one fine beer. A simple Saison styled beer with firm bitterness is all she requested. From the beginning, it was easy to imagine this beer as Ne Goeien all the way.

RB1 (117) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2012
750ml bottle. Cloudy/ hazy straw yellow, with moderate white head (decent retention). Not too much carbonation. Aroma is floral, some citrus and bready/biscuity yeast. Taste is crisp and clean, lemon and coriander, earthy and some tartness. Finish is dry and tart. Very little bitterness. After 4 years in the bottle pretty much all hop characteristics are gone. Still, a nice summery saison.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Straw in color, somewhat cloudy, moderate to large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Funk on the nose, almost seems like Brett.   Otherwise pale breadiness, slightly floral and grassy.   Soft funkiness on the tongue, pale breadiness, even softer grass.   Does have a Bretty aspect.   Clean, slightly tart, but could use a touch more sweetness.   I actually like this one more than most.   Seems more Belgian like than many others brewed stateside.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Finishes quick, clean, but almost too quick.   Just needs to be a bit more tart and I think it would be DY-NO-MITE!

Port/Lost Abbey Ne Goeien Saison 2008 bottle. Thanks to my brother in law Ryan. Cheers! Pors murky gold with a thick white head and good retention. Aroma is grassy with notes of pears and other fruits without the requisite sweetness. A little spicy. Flavor is bone dry and tangy with good citrus notes and a spicy quality. Highly drinkable
