Golden colored pour. Big white head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of fresh coriander - just slightly. Some peppery notes. Taste is a dry sweet malt with some spice. Not bad.

Countbeer (4391) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle: Very big sized, white foamy head that disappear very slow. This on top of a murky almost muddy yellow colored beer. Aromas of glue, clay, dirty malts, old hops, garbage, (cooked) cabbage... Not your average like of a craft beer aroma... Flavours of floral, old hops, bitters, malts, clay, manure, cream, hay, grass, grains, close to nasty malty bitterness... Aftertaste is floral, malty, bitter, earthy and grass. Medium carbo, soft foamy light blown mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Strange beer, bit out of tune...

Sten (632) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Yellow - orange coloured beer with a white head and a lot of sediment. Strange spicy aroma. Flavour is watery, sweet and malty. (Corked bottle 37,5cl)

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2013
Slightly hazy pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of laundry, yeast, spelt and hops, quite a bit of bubblegum and candy. Light sour, light bitter flavour, malts, spelt and yeast. Light sour finish, sweets and yeast.
Brought for those completing the HtD collection. Decent, though I found it a bit disappointing, I like some of their other beers more.

Thx. to Martinus for this one another one added to my Hof ten Dormaal collection. 375 ml. green bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Opaque yellow with a white head. Nose showcase the typical home-grown barley & hop character of HtD with their atypical hops winning the show mixed with a lot of herbs & coriander. Taste is sweet, milk, lots of spices, coriander, cleaning agents, their home-grown hop & barley showing here. Medium hazy, bodied, I believe that I was supposed to dislike this one… meh it is not bad & enjoyable albeit not their best.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
37.5cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of Tinus. Dorée, blanc. Arôme est herbacé avec ce côté cour de ferme et un malt discret dans un style très belge. Palais reste vraiment dans le style belge montrant ce côté typique de houblons nobles; citronné moyen, pointe d’épice et coriandre qui peine à mettre la bière en évidence. final, on s’ennuie, rien de bien surprenant.

Benzai (8139) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Hazy yellow color, full sized good lacing white head. Smell and taste a light sourness and some fruitpeel. Don’t really like it but it could be worse.
