Bontus (638) - Flanders, - JUN 23, 2012
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

330ml bottle, pours light lemony haze, aso also has some lemon, with wit ike malts, coriander and farmhouse like notes, sweet with some biting sourness, definitely a bit different and worth trying. Medium body with average carbonation.

Aroma of cloves with hints of coriander. Cloudy gold color with a lasting white head. Chalky, earthy, coriander taste with an unpleasant clove finish.

Not too yeasty or light. Kept thinking of it close to a heffewisen

On draft while in Europe. Poured a golden color, somewhat hazy, and huge white head. Aroma was a traditional wheat. Got some hay and grass, with some fruits in there. Taste followed the nose. Not bad, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

didierlewallon (125) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
Es una cerveza de color oro con una buena espuma de color blanco. Aroma intensamente afrutado, es fuerte y picante, con plátano y trigo. Sabor a lúpulo agrio y notas de frutas en todo, con solo un toque de acidez agradable y un final seco. Cerveza realmente muy buena.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2014
Much-debated restitution of a historical Antwerp beer, launched in 2012 by a former Moortgat employee. The original and therefore necessarily old-fashioned glass and label have been kept in honour - and considering my interest in Belgian beer history, this immediately elicits some sympathy from my part. The beer shows a sticky, off-white, stable head and cloudy ochre golden blond colour. Aroma reminiscent of a witbier, with obvious sourish wheat and lemon peel, something sweaty and grainy, as well as apple, biscuit, almond, honey. Mild fruity onset, apple and some citrus, medium carbo, wheaty beginning with freshly sourish accent, bready, sweetish background, powdery and somewhat starch-like mouthfeel, quite a lot of body, lemony freshness in the finish, thirst-quenching. A tasteful ’tarwedubbel’, I like it.

Florals with a little bit of an odd yeast aroma. Pours hazy yellowish. Bread yeast. Some banana. Kind of tastes like a Belgian wit. Tap at Sancho pistolas.
