tricksta_p (1954) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Aroma of fruits, yeast, citrus, grass, floral notes, hoppy notes. Aroma is light sweet with a moderate bitter finish. A Belgian classic. Surprised it’s still quite hoppy after almost two years of aging.

Douberd (3189) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
(Van Eecke Hommelbier Nieuwe Oogst Fresh Harvest 2013) 750 ml bottle at home, served into a tulip glass, ABV 7.5% Clear body, orange coloured, with a tall, soapy, white head, with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Nice aroma with floral notes, yeast with light pepper character, some honey-like sweet notes, grassy hops, apricot. Sweet taste, alcohol, malts and sugars, then becomes fruity with apricots and peaches, again some honey, grass, light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium body, good carbonation, quite dry palate. Very good, tasty, glad it’s a 750.

Alengrin (3230) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
The second edition of this special version of Poperings Hommelbier, with four fresh hop varieties. Sticky, stable, off-white head, hazy peach blond colour. Grassy and explicitly hoppy aroma even more so than the regular, green apple, grapefruit, lemon peel, honey, sulphur, flowers, some vague DMS. Fresh fruity taste, citrus freshness same as the regular, honeyish and somewhat caramelly malts, lightly sweet, finish clearly ’green’ hops, floral and grassy, relatively mild but complex, refreshing, ethereal, long and dry.

Zymurgeist2 (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Out of a 750 ml at Cafe Rose Red in Brugge. Muted malt aroma. Hazy bright orange with full white head. Flavor is not very hoppy - perhaps a little old on this one. It has probably faded from the beer it once was, but a pleasant beer to have. Malt and biscuit flavor.
