Lot 335 12/2013. pale color with white head, hoppy aroma, quite a full taste for such a light beer. dry and hoppy finish. You can still taste the hops in your mouth after you swallow. Good beer !

Countbeer (4032) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Medium to bigger sized white foamy head on top of a hazy to murky yellow colored beer. Aroma is like that of a Witbier: wheat, yeast, herbs, coriander, tea herbs, some soap, light malty and some white pepper. Flavours of bitters, yeast, herbs, some floral tones, wheat, light malts, some plants, tea herbs, nettle and some skunk/marijuana tones. Aftertaste is bitter, floral, yeast and some herbs, plants and green grass. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy texture. Decent beer.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pale hazy beige color ale with a relatively large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of bready yeast with some floral hay notes is very enticing. Taste is a very drinkable mix of bready yeast with some light Belgian malt with a dry hay finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Nice complex beer with good drinkability and low ABV. Where do I sign-up for more of this?

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle at Ottawa crew’s March tasting courtesy of Luc. For me this was the star of the show - poured a murky yellow with a white head and I could have smelt it for hours. Amazingly fresh and light saison aroma with a nice combination of pepper, grass, lemons, some orange, light malt profile in the background and a slight funk. Moderate body and carbonation, dry, complex, and amazing.

kraddel (2430) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com Pours very clear blonde ( actually looks wattery ) with a very big, but fast fading white head . Intense, grainy , lager-ish smell . But in a good way ( grainy ) Good carbonation . Taste has malts, thin bitterness, some grains, some hay even . No clue wether this is low or high fermentation, but I’m pretty sure -tastewise - it’s low fermentation . Easy drinkable, as to be expected . Nice amount of and a good taste , but not nearly the best low ABV i’ve had .

Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a medium persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is grainy with some spices and fruity hops. Taste is also mainly of grains along fruity hops, herbal notes and a touch of spices. Light body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Tasty for such a low abv beer. Refreshing and drinkable. It’s nice to see more of these quality low abv beers on the market. Good!

cfrancis (2153) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Thanks to Lubiere for this. Pretty amazing that a beer this complex comes with just a 2.9% price tag. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is grain, corn and straw. Taste is some straw and grainy malt profile with some clove and dry yeast finish.

mike_77 (2726) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2014
Hazy pale blond with thin soapy head. Strong aroma of pale malts together with citrusy hops and yeast. Body is light and a little watery but there’s a solid punch of citrusy hops. Has a tart and bitter taste which is very refreshing.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
A hazed blonde saison with a thin white head. In aroma, beautiful fruity malt with notes of pepper, orange pulp, Brett, very nice. In mouth, for a light alcohol beer, superb dry malt with smooth spices, coriander, Brett, creamy character, very nice. Bottle from cave à bulle.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2014
Small white head over faintly veiled, well-carbonated orange-golden beer. End of bottle muddy yeast blob. Fruity nose, grapes, grass, lunaria, nectarines. Quite bitter, dry bitter spices, dried hops, hay. Good! Faint retronasal aroma of washing powder. Bone-dry, obviously light body but without giving a watery, even not empty impression. Yeast addition, apart from the more creamy MF, gives a bitter lineseed-like aftertaste from the hops. Another of these latter-day super low ABV taste bombs. In any way, vastly superior to the Florida
