MoritzF (8937) - Ottobrunn, - SEP 21, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a blond and dense medium-sized foam. Yeasty and fruit-accented aroma with notes of citrus, orange zests and coriander spice. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Quite dry malt-character with present fruity notes and a good dash of herbal and peppery hops; dry-ish bitter hoppy finish with not too much amounts of coriander. Good one. 09.IX.12

Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Medium strength hybrid between blonde and saison, lightly gushing, resulting in a very rocky, towering, dense, snow white head. Clear and pretty golden robe with fierce sparkling. Fragrant, delicate, perfumey aroma of honey, lavender, star aniseed, tulips, chamomille, cake, bubblegum, vanilla. Crisp, refreshing taste, banana, pineapple, honeyish, light on the tongue but flavourful, elegant and supple, with retronasal aromas of aniseed and field flowers as well as a hint of pink pepper and a quenching light sourish touch. Lovely little beer!

Bottle: Golden, cloudy, stable mid-sized white lacy head, mild to moderate spicy orangey and citrussy nose, yeast, alcohol and herbal hops still detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering citrus-fruity and yeasty finish, some warming alcohol detectable. Nice brew…
