2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Creamy white excellwnt fully lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty moderate hoppy aroma. many fruity esters, banana? Moderate bitter flavor. Tastes of barnyard, really not my style. Very creamy palate. Strange beer tastes more like a light belgian ale. I wonder what yeast is used here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly herbal, grassy, citric aroma. Citric, grassy flavor with an upcoming grapefruity tarness (infection?) and a light hop character, especially revealing itself in the aftertaste. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (?, Amsterdam)
Darkish, good head. Sour, pissy and a bit peppery aroma. Taste is also a bit pissy, salty and drying - metallic. Some good malty body too, but dominated by odder tastes, not all good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Disparate light head, fast gone, over very carbonated beer, with a champagne-like colour and appearance. Nose of sour hay, yeast - this is a benign infection! A bit of ’t putteke . Fleetingly sourish, then an equally short-lived bitterness, tad metallic, reverting to more classical pilsner flavours with some grassy and hay - but hay that’s been long out there withouth drying. Very light bodied. A bit sharp, but not burning MF. As said, this is infected, but in a pleasing way. It’s quite original in it’s style! Thanks Dean.
