In spite of what it says on the label it tastes like it was bottled in the 1970s. Old beer flavour and remnants of some disappointed hops.

Aroma fruttato, scorza d’agrume , frumento, leggero acetico. gusto acetico, secco, non troppo amaro. abbastanza equilibrata, astringente, carbonata, un accenno di calore alcolico. Volutamente fuori stile. Equilibrata.

Benzai (11031) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Again I got the last part of the bottle (sort of speak) and it was totally murky, yellow colored with slightly some yeast particles floating in there. Small off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is totally weird, it reminds me of Indian rice...wtf.. Taste is yeasty, a bit sweetish, it’s alright actually. Don’t like the aroma but the taste is decent.

Thanks to Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle split by 3. Orange, quickly gone head. Lots of mellow orange and light marmalade in the nose, hay, straw, peaches, lightly rustic. Tastes of mellow biter zest, light esters, sweet orange, dash marmalade, touch creamy, lightly sweet. Not stellar or pronounced enough to reach for the stars but still a very lovely drink. I may be anything but a fan of most ’t Hofbrouwerijke beers but is definitely one of the good ones.

33cl Bottle at Brel Biercafé. Hazy golden yellow colour, white head. Aroma of earth, light spicy, hay, lemon, straw, classic. Flavour is light to medium-sweet, hay, unmalted barley, spices, yeast, lemon, citrus, firm bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Nice.

FatPhil (11501) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2014
750ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
Straw coloured, UFOs. brief head. Milky creamy rice pudding cooked milk aroma, some fruitiness. Slightly watery palate, fairly refreshing, crispish carbonation. Fruity body, fleshy sweet fruits - pineapple. Finish has some nice bready malts, just a hint of saisony farmhouse yeastiness. Sub-par saison
