thanatosti (1501) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016
50 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Vulpen Doorn. Clear light golden with a thin white head. grainy aroma. Taste is medium sweet and mouthfeel is thin, even considering the low ABV. If I didn’t know better I would assume it to be a pale lager or pilsener. Bland and boring.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2016
On Tap at The Big Legrowlski - Pretty sure this bad boy is oxidized. It has a lot of bread and biscuit but it’s mainly cardboard at this point. The yeast is almost nonexistent. Nothing too estery or spicy.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 1, 2016
Jul. ’15. A 0.5 l bottle from Mali ducan, Split. It poured clear golden body with medium sized head. Lightly rusty sugary aroma, maybe touched with cloves. Flavor was lightly sweet, too, simle sugary and vanilla. No hops as advertised, maybe only lightly in the finish. Medium bodied. Nothing special here, apart from the historical tribute, without any character and messy. It was drinkable, even okay, but considering the style it doesn’t do so well.

Trolleo (1390) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 7, 2016
Clear golden color, aroma of malt and sugar. Sweet-ish and fruity taste, thin to medium body, average carbonation. Easy and drinkable stuff. //bottle at Svijet Piva

Bière blonde de haute fermentation, mais non refermentée, de 5,2 % abv. Définie par son brasseur comme une « belgian top blond », nous ne voudrions pas le contredire, mais elle est un peu ambrée … et en ce qui concerne le top, nous en reparlerons … Format 50cl (pourquoi ?), mon exemplaire était à 2 mois après sa date limite. Couleur doré un peu ambré, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, par centaines, partout, vives. Mousse blanche, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de caramel, muscade, pointe de cuir (?), malt grillé. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame assez correcte, malt et houblon avec une touche herbeuse. Arrière-bouche un peu épicée, muscade. 2ème à la belle texture, mais le goût est sans vraie valeur. Arrière-bouche un peu plus dense. 3ème aux gentilles nuances, assez fondues, mais sans complexité. Arrière-bouche agréable, mais peu consistante. Longueur et finale n’apporteront rien d’autre. L’alcool est bien pour son niveau, mais il ne contribue à rien dans l’ensemble. CONCLUSION : deuxième non refermentée de Van Honse que je goûte, et qui me paraît bien en-dessous des productions habituelles … Que se passe-t-il dans la tête du brasseur ?? Je veux bien que l’on cherche à associer certaines bières avec des fromages, mais on n’est pas obligé pour la cause de voler au ras des pâquerettes … comme les herbes que mangent les vaches .. Je ne sais pas si vous me suivez, mais les cotes sur ratebeer ont tout à fait l’air de suivre  ...
