rdb84 (323) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Cola colour, nice carbonation from the onset, modest foam head. Almost like a Cola (!). Aroma: typical Belgian double with a very pronounced metallic aroma. Prunes, dark fruits (raspberries, blackberries), also a very nice pear aroma. Fruity, as is to be expected from the Witkap line-up. The yeast adds an acidic touch, however. Taste: very mellow, with distinct grass and earth notes, chestnuts, some basement funk, slightest creamy touch. If I had to describe it: a bit like walking in an autumn forest. Development is mildly bitter, sweet, and faintly boozy. Aftertaste is neutral, with some brown sugar notes. Very gentle Double, nice!

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 21, 2015
33cl, slightly aged bb 01/2016. Thinnish chestnut pour, fizzy froth. Thin mélange of fig jam, stewed maroni, cocoa powder and something metallic, bretty even. Missed some cream or dark/roasted malt textures here. - Will have to revisit either bottled or on tap, feel this beer can do more.

bottle at home. Pours cloudy brown with a small fine light beige head, beautiful lacing and carbonation. Nice light aroma of malts, light caramel and toffee. Light body, very subtle balance between malt roastiness and sweetness, little honey touch in the taste. Very nice.
