DutchDrebus (3979) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle @ home. Weird murky amber colour with a medium sized white head. Smells herbs, yeast, weird. Tastes sourish, raisins, herbs and spices, plants. Medium body, medium carbo.

Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy reddish color, average to medium sized white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly sweetish, lightly herbal, a touch of sourish wood, yeast and I also get a touch of brett. Intended? Doubtful, but it’s ok. Drinkable, but not really my kind of beer.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Amber-coloured session ale with yellowish white, delicate, very stable head and ravishing deep copper colour, clear, but turning hazy after adding the deposit, as it should be. Nose gets walnuts, sweet melon, peach and strawberry, flowers, caramel candy, rhum beans, cloves and vanilla. In the mouth a vivid play between the sharpish nut-like malts and a sweetness of dried fruits, all under a medium carbonation, but not leading to a satisfying ’happy end’, not enough hops for balance and not enough body, finish even a bit thin. Could have been a lot better.

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle at Reading Beer Festival 2014. Lightly cloudy orange with little head. Dry hop aroma, fruity with apricot notes. Very dry spiced beer, yet tasty. Went down well but it wasn’t earth shattering.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014

Bosbouw (1191) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Mooie donkere caramelkleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt zoetig, gebrande mouten, caramel, rood fruit. Smaakt zoetig, fruit, caramel, kers. Een ietwat zoet biertje.

fkoolen (270) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Hazy orange colour, foamy off-white head. Thin aroma. Taste is big on malts, grainy and sweet, a little fruity (peach) and acidic and quite bitter. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, fresh but a bit oily mouthfeel.

bartlebier (1649) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2014
33cl bottle, DHVL pairing suggestion with their rich 4-cheese lasagne, pre-NvdGD 2014. Nose of Peach, subtle apricot upon pouring the characteristic Belgian yeast. Gentle fruit basket. As if timeclocked: later gentle yeast&hop bitters. Mango-peach aftertaste without any sweetness. Lingering yeast pillows. Good, but odd pairing.

Tayeth (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 27, 2014
Sehr malziger, hefiger Geruch. Geschmack dann sehr hefelastig mit einem leicht angebrannten Nachgeschmack.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2014
Amber color with a big off-white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of berries and malts. Flavor is quite fruity with notes of bitter chocolate. Full body with a dry and slightly alcohol finish.
