Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is hay, malt, grassy hops. Flavour is malty hay, some grassy hops and faint fruity esters. Watery finish. Meh.

bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2014
50cl bottle, merci Jowan. 02/2014. Pours a lively straw yellow, aromas of green apple, cardboard and some old grassy hops. Very conflicted flavour profile, neither yeast, not malt, nor hop driven. Paper dry palate. Hard to tell if the citric astringent finish is from the hops or ascorbin. A commemorative ale for the centenary of the Great War and this is what they came up with: a light Belgian ale blend of Poperinge hops and strawy malts, nodding towards the nascent chemical mustard gas war, Ypriet by adding ascorbin acid? Not a sign of hope for the way ahead out of traditional Flanders Fields brewing and a bit sanctimonious at that.

Beerhunter111 (5467) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2014
500ml Flasche. Ins glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig fruchtig, belgische Hefe. Geschmack hefig, malzig, Gewürze, insgesamt aber zu schwach.

6/III/14 - 50cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 16/IV/15 (2014-252)

Clear blond beer with some very small sediment floating around under a small creamy white head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of banana, fruity, sweet and sugary, more banana, bit spicy. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: banana, some citrus, littel bitter, very metallic, banana peel. Aftertaste: more metallic, yeasty, some banana, little bitter.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2014
Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin. Malts cara, légèrement amère, notes fruitées (bananes, citron). Dans le genre qui relève des pils, celle-ci est supérieure et est d’une fraîcheur exquise!

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Yellow/golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, mild hoppy nose. Moderate malty, slight yeasty and grassy with dry hoppy finish. Just ordinary.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Draft at 2Be in Brugge on 1st Feb 2014. Pours lager like, golden with a white head. I was disappointed with this to be honest, not much going on in either the nose or taste. There are hints of flavour, traces of malty semi-sweetness and a hop undertone but this came across as bland. Refreshing enough, but so is water if you’re thirsty. There certainly wasn’t any ’spicy aftertaste’ as advertised.

fdomig (315) - München, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Aroma is light egg. Appearance is pale golden with a thin white head. Taste is thin. A watery mouth feel. Soft carbonation. Well. For a Belgian a bit disappointing.
