Countbeer (4825) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized, vast, thick and slowly changing white head on top of a hazy bright yellow colored beer. The aroma’s or smell of this beer is pretty bad/strange: sweaty grains, light yeasty, baby poo, corn, sweat, wheat, hemp and a hint of paper. Taste wheat, corn, hint of hops, hint of spices, grains, bitter, hint of citrus and peach, hint of paper, hint of soap and herbs. Aftertaste is bitter with spices, herbs and grass and light dry. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture Decent beer, nothing spectacular but not bad either.

bonkiedeaap (333) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is light yellow with a nice white head and a lot of bubbles. A slight spicy and floral fragrance comes towards you. In addition, it has a fruity tone with the sweetness of cherry and caramel after some time. also discover a slight hint of coconut in the background. You can expect a distinctive flavor. Strong bitters using the mouth as a playground, where the carbon dioxide throws some extra oil on the fire. Furthermore, you can taste the fruitiness of green apple and a little citrus.The aftertaste is particularly dry. A slight bitterness is still just above, before it fades.
