poech73 (284) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2015

@1st Tilquin English Beer Festival "Kill the kegs" (05/06/2014)
bière blonde à la robe paillé diaphane et aux reflets cuivrés. Son nez est malté, acidulé et fleuri. En bouche, la gorgée offre un maltage assez fluet, à la fois suret et légèrement rôti avec une gentille rondeur caramélisée, plutôt léger à boire. La finale est sèche légèrement amère herbacée.

Maakun (1660) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Tap at Kaapse festival. Slight hazy very pale straw with short lasting fluffy white head. Lemon, sour grains, funk, light white pepper, light vegetal bitterness. Not really any sweetness with medium sourness. Light bodied, dry feel.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2015
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 27 Feb 2015) Pale yellow colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of citrus, grass, hay, lemon peel and earthy hints of yeast. Fruity, spicy taste with citrus, grapefruit, lemon, grass, hay, earthy yeast and a balanced spicy bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well made, quite true to the style. Very nice.

JulienHuxley (4323) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
On tap at the BeerTemple. Very pale white gold pour with white head. Aroma is hoppy, light Belgian yeast notes but very subtle. Taste is very grainy, bready flavor with light citrusy hoppiness, dry. Palate is light, light body light carb, a tad watery. Not a much of a fan of the Belgian stuff as their hoppy styles, this was ok.

domienS (226) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2015
Pours a clear blonde beer with a little white foamy head. Smells yeasty with a little hint of hops. Tastes lightly sweet, soft beer. Low on saturation.

Pedrens (164) - SPAIN - JAN 30, 2015
5,1% AVB...de barril, en copa. Color amarillo palido opaco. Espuma blanca persistente. El olor muy a madera verde y sidra. En boca acida y en la que los aromas se mantienen como sabor, aunque se percibe algun toque mas a levadura. Dulzura baja, amargor medio, el acido persiste. El final algo mas herbal. No me ha gustado mucho...demasido "asidrada"

shoulderbroken (2850) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Maybe left it too long as it got left behind when I moved out of the country. Clear pale blond colour with white fluffy head. Aroma is very Belgian, herbal, touch of spice. Maybe lost the hoppiness, but quite doughy, bit of fizz, touch of fruit, slightly metallic, slight creaminess. Taste is nice, herbal again, quite crisp. Bit metallic again, but I am guessing this is the age. Really should have drunk it earlier. Still nice though. Doughy maltiness, touch of fruity bitterness.

CraftBeerNick (1274) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home on a winters night in August, break from Black IPAs. 25th August 2012. Saison is not a favoured style of mine, but I like The Kernel. Pours clear and straw coloured, visible carbonation and a reasonable head, aroma is yeasty, flavour is refreshing and palate fairly fizzy for the Kernel, in line with the style. A good example, but I will not be having another
