BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, - MAY 10, 2012
December 2007, from BA: Brown 33cl bottle, best before? Not sure, so drank both the bottles I had, this review is a combination of those beers. Poured into a Corsendonk tulip glass it has a small white head that soon sinks down into a scummy looking wisp. The body of the beer is an orange cloudy, light amber colour, not very appetizing really. The aroma was of sweet and sour fruits, pineapple and citrus together, with the sweeter smells winning the battle. Fruit juice with a kick, strange mix of flavours, couldn’t pick a true taste comparison, not unpleasant though. Fairly thin in the mouth, plenty of life but something missing in action. Didn’t really know what to make of this beer, I enjoyed the first one more than the second, which is unusual for me, as i said earlier, something missing for me.

Hamirubi (403) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
33cl bottle at my parents-in-law (1 XI 2015). A clear orange and brownish coloured brew with a swift and pearly head - while having a side glass with a cloudy brown residu liquid, with strong yeast flavours. The nose has firm malts and yeast features, and some undeniable cellar and dirt hints. The mouthfeel is somehow earthlike, and has a keen water feature and an omnipresent endive bitterness. The dirt accompanies the bitter ending.

SaintMatty (6292) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2015
330ml Bottle - Hazy golden with a foamy head. Grain, wort and honey in the aroma. Grain, porridge oats and honey can be detected in the bready taste. Interesting but I am not familiar enough with flax to discern it in this beer.

bartlebier (2966) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2015
Fresh Tap pour@the unfortunately named Rock Circus, Gent (rename suggestion: Hop Circus). Tastes like a diluted Hommelbier with less Poperinge kick, the same clean, but not really bright hoppiness and a dusty honey malt base with some industrial white pepper, cardboard, meadow pollens. Very lacklustre, also regarding the pollen yeast profile, old school Belgian session ale overall that I would like to see replaced by bright and lower ABV representatives of the style like De La Senne. This bar seems to have 20+ taps of those...
