La Simon Dinkel, la bière aux trois tiers

Deux tiers de malt d’orge et un tiers d’épeautre non malté provenant d’un agriculteur voisin de la brasserie à Wiltz.

Cette spécialité non-filtrée a été créée en 1998 et titre seulement 4,5% d’alcool, ce qui renforce sa fraîcheur et sa délicatesse. Son trouble naturel provient des levures restantes à cause de l’étape de la filtration qui a été omise dans ce procédé artisanal.

Moins amère et plus douce qu’une bière blonde classique, cette bière est légère et digeste.

MrHangover (3951) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Poured into original Simon Dinkel glass, wich looks like a weizenglass. Pours out hazy yellow with a firm, creamy white head on top. Yeasty aroma, little malt presence. Flavour is bitter with with grainy and fruity notes in the beginning and the finish. Finishes dry. Nice find from Luxembourg..

BlackHaddock (6346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle (4.5% ABV), best before 8th May 2010, drank and reviewed 6th Apr 2010. Poured into a Duvel glass. Very pale gold/yellow, with a slight haze within, the head was a pure white colour and well formed. The smell was wheat and barley along with a mini yeast ester. The taste wasn’t like a normal Euro lager, this had some flavours of grains and cereals, pleasant stuff. This is the last of my Simon beer samples given to me by a Luxembourg based Brit, cheers Marcus. Full bodied and intereting for this style (not sure what style it is to be honest). Anyway, well worth trying to find if in and around Luxembourg, which is more than can be said for most of the beers from this country.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Bier schaut extrem hell und trüb im Glas aus. Der Geschmack is leicht süßlich, würzig und etwas malzig.

Eructoblaster (3843) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with a thin white foamy/creamy head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with light yeasty and citrusy hints. Taste is slightly dominated by maltiness. It carries herbal and yeasty notes, and ends with a short bitter/grainy finish.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2011
Im Geruch hopfig und ein wenig brotig-muffig anmutend. Im Antrunk durchaus herb. Würziger Fluß durch die Mitte. Würzig-bitterer Abgang. Solides Bier. Danke an Grima für dieses Bier!Test vom 8.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

olsvammel (5995) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 On tap at Go Ten Café in Luxembourg. It poured a watery and foggy yellow liquid with a small white head. A very light beer in all ways possible, light taste and light body. Just a bit of fruitiness. However lean and easy to drink. But made me think of carbonated water, so the score is low because of it.

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Herber Antrunk, deutlich prickelnd. Das hilft dem Bier vorerst, seinen Engpass zu überbrücken, dann abseits der Herbe sind hier kaum Aromen präsent. Eine Hefenote stößt im Mittelteil dazu, seicht, geradezu vorsichtig. Wenig dunkel getreidig, soll dass das Dinkel sein? Naja, immerhin ist es erkennbar... Zum Ende hin wird das Bier sehr leicht, weiterhin prickelt es. Erfrischend, hier aber zu oberflächlich. OK. 8/9/8/7/7/7

Bierkrug (2130) - - APR 13, 2011
330 ml bottle in Germany. Pours a hazy light yellow color with a large white head. Aroma is sour mash with some pineapple. Taste is slightly sweet with some very different flavors passing through it. It is a bit watery but still is nice and smooth. Palate leaves a lingering sour/bitter tang but it is not offensive. Good mid level brew even if it is a bit strange.

Countbeer (6192) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2011
Bottle: Best before 25/10/2007: Small quick disappearing white head on top of a very very light hazy, almost clear orange yellow colored beer. Smell honey, butter, malts, herbs, hints of wood and sweets. Taste is a soft and smooth mix of butter, sweet, malts, hints of honey, water and light grassy. Very low malty grassy aftertaste. Low carbo, low to medium body, soft creamy mouthfeel and a watery texture.

bierkoning (12387) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle from Grima, thanks! Pale blonde. Grainy, buttery aroma. Grainy flavor with bitter walnuts and rancid butter. Diacetyl hiding the citrus notes.
