1/IX/2012 on tap @ Tuinfeest Heeren van Liedekercke (Denderleeuw) - BB: n/a (2012-989)
Little cloudy pale yellow beer, big aery fuzzy head, bit stable, adhesive. Aroma: hay, stable, grains, bit grassy, some citrus, spices. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: grains, malts, pretty fruity, hay, stable, grassy bitterness, little sweet. Aftertaste: hay, pretty bitter, grassy, still fruity, lemon, tangerines, grains, all-bran. Reminds me a LOT of all the German Helles I recently had on holidays.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
July 2008: Oh dear, Tim Webb describes it as possibly the best Pilsner brewed in Belgium. My findings are very diferent. He claims 6%, I claim 5.2%.
Choosen from the huge beer list at Cafe Botteltje in Ostend. My beer was out of date and this is not for ageing obvisously, as it was almost undrinkable. OK, only a sado like me would have finished it.
A dull old gold colour, with a white head, so it looked OK. The 33cl brown bottle gave off a citrus smell and the beer looked fizzy, please read on.
The beer from the list I had before this one, was a murky sludge (an out of date ’Lam Gods’). This beer had the aroma and taste of a lemon cleaning liquid, which came in handy the next day as I cleared up after the sludge fell out of me. A beer that smells and tastes like a toilet block isn’t my normal drink, but you only live once, don’t you?
