Bottle sample at a tasting at tderoeck’s place. Thanks tderoeck. Hazy amber, beige head. Honey, date honey, very sticky aroma. Sweet honey taste and a little soap. Full-bodied, soapy aftertaste with a little candy sweetness. Not amazing.

DutchDrebus (4422) - 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 (9353) - 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 (2742) - 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 (1215) - 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 (6299) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewery stand at Zythos. Hazy orange. Fruity, yet bitter. Long full flavour. Elegant.

Bosbouw (1486) - 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.
