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.

Lighter gold. Clean aromatics showing some lavender and heather. Nimble palate with some soapy notes on the palate along with coriander and fresh pear. Long, expressive finish

Served in my sacred kwak glass. A rocky head of snow white foam sits atop a hazy golden colored elixir. A yeasty aroma, with light malt and hop undertones that makes my mouth water for summer grilling season. A solid saison body, but as described, hopped up! A drying mouth finish, this beer falls decidedly on the love side of my love/hate opinion of lost abbey. Truly excellent!

Thanks to egajdzis for sharing this one. Pours a miky golden/yellow with a medium bubbly white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of this wonderful floral, orange peel, light Saison spiciness, hints of some funkiness, fresh hops, tropical fruits, pepper and sweet maltiness. Flavor was hoppier than I was expecting, bready, peppery, tons of citrus, light grapefruit, moderate hop bitterness. Very well done!

Slightly hazy straw color with a white head that has excellent retention and leaves layers of lacing around the glass. Smell is of hay, clove, lemon, tangerine, coriander, and musty grass. Clove and earthy flavors at the forefront, quickly developing notes of tangerine, coriander, and dough before a spritzy citrus and clove finish. Firm carbonation, medium to high level, paired with a light body. I don’t think I actually like this beer as much as my rating shows, but I have to give credit for a great appearance and mouthfeel. Thanks to Weibull for the bottle.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits, hay, floral hops, citrus, and white pepper. Taste of vanilla, tropical fruits, honey, hay, flowers, citrus fruits, white pepper, and a dry finish.

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Aroma of fruit (green/sour apple) and spice (easters), background of floral hops. Pours hazy golden with fluffy/rocky white head with nice lacing. Flavor begins with nice citrus. Middle flavor is subtle pepper/spice and finishes with a nice hop/dry throat. Nice balance between the spicy hops/spices and the subtle malt. Medium body with nice carbonation, leaves the throat dry and slightly salty. Very drinkable and refreshing Saison.

This hazy golden beer poured with a beautiful fluffy white head and a fruity aroma. Ah, now this is a saison. There is a delicate bittersweet floral taste followed by a thick spice finish that remains on the palate for a while. Very nice.

Bottle from South Bay Drug. Hazy orange golden color with a fluffy, creamy off-white head. Aromas of mild spice, mild light fruits and mild funk. Medium body with foamy, creamy carbonation. Flavor is astringent spice, some coriander?, some funk. It is both sweet and lightly sour. It is both hoppy and funky. It is a masterpiece. I think there’s a touch of apricot in the finish. I could go on and on.

750mL Bottle. This beer reeks of fresh, dank red-thread panama pot. Fresh and weedy. Hoppy. Very dupont-like. Pours a clear golden, touch of haze, with a really lacy, lacy white head. Flavor is really amazing and crisp. There’s so much flavor and it’s so authentic. Tons of dense, cracker-heavy pilsener, followed by a great wallop of hop bitterness and pithy oils. Then the grace of Saison yeasts, with that curt phenolic dryness that makes these beer so palatable and balanced. This is amazing and really classic. Fantastic. Thanks Andy!

In short: An extra-refreshing hoppy barnyard blonde Saison. A fantastic thirst-quencher.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when about 4 to 6 months of age. Bottles sent to me by kegbear, mega-thanks Craig.
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a very small but persistent white head
In long: Nose is medium barnyard/wild. Taste is not intense but has a lot of delicately complex. Moderately yeasty, garden flowers, some orange peels, white pepper, a slice of banana, medium funky/barnyard, a touch of coriander, a bit of green apples. This is a very hoppy saison. Not much bitterness but the spicy lemony hops provide a nice spicy dryness with a dry dead cut grass flavour. Lively carbonation. Medium astringency. Hard to describe really because its main quality is its drinkability. This truly is a thirst-quencher, and an extremely classy one. If it wasn’t for me taking notes I would have gone through the 750ml in less than 10 minutes. This beer is really highly drinkable. Would this beer be any more highly drinkable then... it would be really highly highly drinkable
