Bontus (742) - Flanders, - APR 4, 2013
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours clear orange, sparkling. Rocky frothy white head. Nose of Euro hops, slicky palate a bit buttery, guess it’s also and English yeast they’ve used. Finishes with a touch of caramel malt and spritzy bitterness. This is the perfect base ale for a dryhopped bitter / APA.

Ptichou (15) - FRANCE - JUN 2, 2016
Bière subtile aux arômes de réglisse. Une fin en bouche qui a une douceur mettant en avant l’amertume de la gorgée suivante

ForlornHope (380) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a thin head. Aroma of malt, yeast and some herbal hop. Taste is slightly sweet to start with a gentle bitterness to follow. Nice malty base, some fruit and a dry finish. I also detect some vanilla and slight yeast in the background, with the slightest hint of funky, bitter hop. A pleasant beer, I would have another.

Pours a clear orange golden color, topped with a medum sized, frothy head, white color. Very spicy aroma with yeasty notes. A bit fruity. Coriander feel most noticeable. Mild taste. Slight bitterness with little yeastiness in the finish. A tad of spices as well with herbal aftertaste. Fairly light and nice.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with an average, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry wit a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale. 🌟🌟🌟
