jaghana (3754) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle 75cl @2ndTSRG, a copper beer with medium head. Aroma is on fruit notes, low body, burnt plastic finish, bit boring for something that should give all the best of Belgian yeast.

caesar (4966) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Bottled @ Camping Ratebeers 2014, small sample. Bit boring belgian-like blonde beer as a base beer. Monk, which probably is some kind of trappist yeast, provides a bit more fruity touch perhaps. But it doesnt mask the base beer. Its still a boring belgian blonde.

McWorta (559) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 7, 2014
Amber in colour with a light yeast haze. Offers a frothy pillowy white lasting head. On the nose aromas of grass, floral, barnyard and light dry earthy and fruity notes develop. A light fizzyness offers a certain sweetness which fades quickly into a light sourness and bitterness. The texture is slick and the body is medium with some fruity spice notes to it. The finish is medium and somewhat dry.
