Swaroga (1387) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2012
15cl sample. Blond liquid with big white head. Nose : soap, lemon zest, grains. Sip : low density with water like texture. Dry lemon zest feeling , bitter, really drinkable. The aftertaste is bitter zest. Overall this is one of the most lightest alcohol lagers but one of the best there is. Full of taste and refreshing.

Dralloc (1) - BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2013 does not count
Bière blonde légèrement ambrée, rappelant la lumière du soleil en début de soirée. Mousse généreuse qui forme un très beau col sur le verre. Bouche fraîche et amer avec des notes fruitées d’agrumes voir de pamplemousses. Légère, elle a une longueur en bouche modeste, mais ce n’est pas là son objectif. Elle est juste là pour vous rafraîchir en vous donnant du plaisir par une belle journée ensoleillée ! Je suis conquis !

sebletitje (6777) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2011
Draft @ 9th Rencontre des Brasseries du Luxembourg Belge. Very limited release. About 200 bottles made according to Raphael (brewer) and a few kegs. Sainte-Helene experimental brews as was their ltd barleywine release. Couleur dorée opaque, mousse soyeuse blanche. Superbe découverte aussi, avec 3.5% une pils facile à boire, légère et complexe. Mais une qui allie aussi un style typique avec un houblon noble américain, et qui me réconcilie avec le style et offre ici un produit de qualité dont les gros revendeurs devraient prendre un peu de la graine. Donc une pils de base avec des notes de malt pils/pale mais avec en retrait une touche de malt grillé allant sur une note de café amer. Le houblon Simcoe ajoute à cette pils une belle dimension citronnée ainsi q’une amertume qui se marie bien avec le style, qui est souvent vu dans les IPA américaines. Néanmoins, ce dernier est parfait pour ce que Sainte-Hélène a voulu faire. Je vois ici une bière hybride qui marie les styles en offrant, certes une pils de très bonne facture, mais aussi une touche IPA de par son houblon. A 3.5% ça se boit facilement, et c’est d’ailleurs ce que j’avais fait durant ce festival.

fraz (36) - Castiglioncello - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 19, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Packaging and Serving - Poured from a 75 cl bottle into a cristal plastic glass at Zerodue Beershop - Cecina, Italy
Aroma - Intense and fairly persistent. Citrus (lemon, grapefruit), fresh grass.
Appearance - Golden hazy color with thick white head. Fine bubbles.
Taste - Lemony entrance, good bitterness. Ends with gentle hoppy and resinous long lasting bitterness. Citrus aftertaste
Mouthfeel - Intense taste quite long persistence. Good carbonation. Light body.
Overall impressions - Into the mouth is pleasantly clean and fresh. To drink a lot during the summer.
Food - Good session beer. Amazing with fat food like fried fish or grilled salmon. It’s bitterness is perfect to refresh and clean the mouth without.

Cunningham (4632) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2012
Golden and light hazy colour with a thick nice foam. Mild fine hoppy and spice aroma. Lovely texture. Together with a well blended hoppy and mild fruity flavour. Refreshing mild biterness. Toghether with Nøgne Ø Pils. This must be the best premium lager/pilsner I have ever had! Outstanding.
