Gangstergafje (537) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
The beer looks quite nice, but not very special. The color of the beer is golden yellow, like most Belgian Ales. The beer has some cloudiness in it. On top of the beer s layer of rough white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses rather quickly, to leave a thin drape of foam. Some bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. The smell is something else. This is special. I donít know if itís completely my cup of tea though. The smell has a little sourness reminding me of wild yeast. After this first impression, some nice bitter and slightly sour hop aromas touch the nose. Itís the lovely citrusy, grapefruity hop aroma, which reminds me of manny great Irish IPAís and Pale Ales. The smell that reminded me a little of wild yeast is all forgotten. I also smell some malts. The taste also contains this hoppy flavor of citrus fruits, especially grape fruit. This is combined with a nice malty flavor and a pinch of the alcohol. Itís quite the combination. To top it all of, I also get some yeasty tones of raisins and maybe even banana. Itís quite nice, and not like any other beer. A nice one.

R4N5H (642) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
33cl bottle at the brewery taproom on 14-May-2016. Clear pale golden amber colour with a medium sized head. Aroma of straw, sweet malt, pine and spices. Light body and medium carbonation. Some citrus, lemongrass and malt. Lightly hopped sweet Belgian ale with a bitters finish. Refreshing and easy drinking.

avdboom (7) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016 does not count
Aromas and pallete got notes of: grass, hay, dough, earthy and leaves. Itís got light sweetness in the finish, medium (IPAíish) bitterness, light body and thin feel. Carbonation is lively and the taste is mostly on bitter, just the way I like it! A solid fresh beer with the yeasty and bitter not overdone but solid center stage. Well done!

puren (565) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 5, 2016
klarowne, jasnobursztynowe, piana obfita, ale sycząca, szybko opada do kołnierzyka, słabo zdobi szkło;
wyraźny - nuty skůrzane, końskie, delikatnie kwaśne, poza tym drożdże, suszone brzoskwinia i pomarańcza;
ciało niskie, wysoko nasycone, musujące w ustach, goryczkowy finisz;
w smaku trochę wodniste, jest to co w aromacie tylko dużo słabsze i w dodatku przykryte wyraźną choć krůtką skůrzaną goryczką;
pijalne, fajne na lato; zdecydowanie do popijania niż degustowania.

Batavi (317) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2016
Fles gekregen, uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn tulpglas. Goudgeel licht troebel bier, met een hoge, luchtige witte schuimkraag. Aromaís van bloemige geurende hopsoorten, met tonen van vlierbloesem, Belgische gist, sinaasappel, groene kruiden en hooi. Het smaakpallet is moutig, verfrissend droog, mooi hopbitter met tonen van hooi, groene kruiden, bloemige hopbitters en citrusfruit. Aangename eerste kennismaking met deze brouwerij, een verfrissend bier, maar ondanks het lage alcoholpercentage zeker smaakvol, dit bier heeft kenmerken van een IPA. Hoge carbonatie, en korte droge hopbittere afdronk. Een prima verfrissend bier van Brouwerij ít IJ. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
