Trappist1 (575) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2013
Mat van kleur, wat vuile neus (zonder afknapper te zijn). Frisse afdronk met bittere toets maar al snel overheerst een zoet, licht plakkerig gevoel. Smaak situeert zich vooral vooraan in de mond, okay all-rounder.

Admirable bière qui développe encore l’immense potentiel du Westhoek... Cette région de Belgique nous offre une profusion de belles bières. Celle-ci est une surprise de taille, parce que très confidentielle. Couleur or brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout comme un feu de paille. Mousse blanche très épaisse et crémeuse. Superbe. Arômes de houblon très fin, pain blanc grillé, croissant, pamplemousse blanc. 1ère bouche douce de citron vert, coriandre, épices fines, fleurs de houblon. Le malt blanc vient après en arrière, superbe. 2ème bouche de grande finesse, et une pointe de cette épice de la Vieille Salm. 3ème bouche avec un développement sur les céréales/houblon/épices. Rétro-nez frais de fruits blancs, superbe. Longueur où l’orchestre se met en place. Levure douce, fleurie, fraîche avec une amertume de classe. Alcool très bien dosé, parfait. Finale où la symphonie se dévoloppe. Bière admirable sur une recette de Diksmuide, le fruit de Dieu et de la puissance, dit le commentaire du brasseur... Un vrai délice ce parrouquet (papagaei) dans un verre calice.

Countbeer (4744) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized lively and with regular speed changing white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of fruit, yeast, some grains, light hop notes, some malts. Flavours of spices, yeast, hops, bitters, light creamy, fruity. Well balanced. Low carbo, almost silky light oily ish mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture. I was enjoying this beer, thus nothing more than a short rating from Countbeer.
