3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. brown colored beer, very bubbly, pours with a massive tan head that hangs around. Spicy, earthy aroma, a bit phenolic. Velvety body. Quite malty. Moderate bitterness. At first, it seems to be a pretty simple BdG...malty is its most apparent character...but the spiciness from the yeast(& hops??) really adds another dimension to this beer. Very well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle gushes when opened, pours hazy amber with strong head and visible effervescence as well as some floaties. Aroma is light tart pepperiness, raisin, bread. Taste is candy caramel, raisin, tart green grape, freshly baked bread. Body is light, frothy, effervescent, and with a dry tart grapey finish. Overall, an extremely delicious beer. Very enlightening to drink as I experience very different (yet delicious) results while brewing with their yest.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bronzy and quite effervescent, it started off with a fat layer of honeycomb meringue, and it kept on bubbling and churning like a miniature volcano in the middle of my glass, I enjoyed watching that. A few flakes were found laying around the bottom, not enough for me to be repulsed.
A real sour, almost lactic aroma. Like a funk-less lambic, or freshly squeezed lemonade. I tried hard to pick up anything else, but just couldn’t. A little one-dimentional, but I liked it anyway.
Excellent presence in my palate, much more malt body than I expected, it finished off chewy with an unripe exotic fruit flavor, like a caramel coated mango. This is my second solid offering from Thiriez, I’ll try to seek them out more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tasting notes from last year. Explosive beer. Foams like a madman! Orangish colored pour with crazy white head that lingered quite a while. Some caramel and fruit on the nose, nothing spectacular. Some spice in the flavor. I wasnt really impressed with this at the time... I think I was looking for something else at the time and they were out. I should try it again for an up to date rating.

20110602 Oirschot Beerfest (33 cl bottle): A slightly cloudy amber-coloured beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like amber-malt with caramle. Not to fresh. A sweet malty taste (caramel), full body, but with a sharp sour sense. A malty bitterness, not to much hopbitterness. BBE 01/2011
