Tasted Blind at a tasting party in Gent

A - Half finger white head. SRM of 4. Light gold

S - wheat and grass. Corn and figs. Very light dry smell.

T - Once again. Too sweet. Very dry champagne taste. Wheat and pears. Apples? Getting slight hint of egg white

M - 100% carbonation. Medium body. Lingering saison and wheat

O - 90/100. Tastes like a borderline cheap beer but it’s tasty and drinkable. Pretty okay smell and decent taste.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2012
Een goudgeel bier met mooi schuim, wat hogere alcoholen, banaansmaak en een smaakvol bitter lichtelijk op de achtergrond. Mooi bier uit West-Vlaanderen, aan de brouwerij Deca gekocht door vriend Hugo, en samen genoten in de zon. Kopte lekker binnen.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before June 2012, poured into an ’Augustijn’ badged chalice in June 2011. The second beer of an ’odd-ball beer tasting evening’. The beer is a dull golden colour, slight haze showing. Thin white covering for a head. Very little in the way of smells, semi-sweet summer garden hints, but no real aroma to talk about. This is a sweet fruity beer, with a yeasty front that struggles to hide the 8.0%ABV alcohol content this beer packs. The overall feeling is fine, in fact very pleasant, the alcohol sits well within the strength and depth of the brew. I’m a fan of the sweeter beers and this is my sort of brew: the beer is well balanced, a little too sweet for some maybe, but in my opinion this is good stuff.

jaghana (3696) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - APR 4, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with good head and retention. Nose is lemony and astringent like. Aroma is sweet with flower notes and lemon touch, alcohol is well hidden, metallic and violette notes, very interesting. But too much yeast aroma, yes lot of phénol there, nice sweet fruity finish.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
330ml, room temperature at The Penguin. Coarsely alcoholic, cherry-accented aroma. Pours golden, sieved with mist beneath a patchy white head thinning to nowt. Overly fizzy, slightly meaty, marzipan taste not endearing itself beside the relative perfection of St Feuillien Grand Cru. Some light buttered pine trying to break out; toasted wheat, disjointed, synthetic kriek cherriness (booze). No thankyou.

cpetrone84 (1271) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a deep golden amber with a pillowy, slightly off white creamy head. The nose is light, some sweet candied sugars with a decent yeast presence, light spice with notes of lemon, vanilla, and honey. The taste is bigger and sweeter than the nose. Loads of candied sugar with sweet caramel malts. The yeast and peppery spice is dulled down and the feel is very muddled and sugary. The body is syrupy and oily, the finish is thin and has a light soapiness in it.

Yves (2094) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2011
Clear golden coloured beer with small white head and medium carbonation. Hoppy spicy aroma. Full creamy slight sparkling palate. Finish is spicy slight bitter ending dry. Easy drinkable for the high alcohol %. Misses some character.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2011
Dorée avec légère brume, col blanc épais. Arôme de levure double belge, profile houblonné fruité. Bière au palais épais, levure belge restant assez douce et vers un style abbaye, houblon style allemand avec une carbonnation active. Note houblonnée de citron mais aussi sucrée rappelant l’abricot, le tout étant fleuri. Malt pils et fin cara, alcool passe bien.

psilosophy (478) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur blonde légèrement orangée, trouble, mousse moyenne de tenue moyenne. Des arômes de miels, d’épices soutenus par un cachet légèrement fleuri. Assez sucrée, elle a du corps et une carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
