De Fontein Herfstbock 3.2
Bottle. Aroma slightly malt and coffee. Full of taste: caramel, coffee, in taste spices like cinnamon, maybe even basil. Dark red-brown color, not clear. Medium body, soft-average carbonation, finish slightly bitter. Not very expressive, but ok. I was a little surprised about the spices. I also had it on draught, but liked it less: it was too watery.

De Fontein Maaskanter Tarwebier 1.9
Aroma is ietwat vluchtig zoet, niet diep of dik genoeg om enorm te imponeren. Waterige caramel en (jaja) tarwekoekjes en iets prikkelends scherp. Schuim zakt meteen in op bruin-grijs bier. Altijd leuk om wat te proberen, maar soms valt het wat tegen omdat het niet verrast en ook de herhaal factor nihil is.

De Fontein Inspirator Zomerblond 3.1
26/VIII/15 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: X/2016 (2015-1126) Thanks to Geroen for the bottle!

Clear pale yellowish beer, fizzy crackling white head, falls down quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of banana, sweet, band-aid, bit chemical. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very watery start, some citrus, grassy hops, little herbal. Aftertaste: spicy touch, soft bitterness, very yeasty, banana, watery, fruity touch. No clue what fruit would have been used in this one, though...

33cl bottle bought at the jan linders supermarket. Poured a fuzzy darker amber colour with a slight off head. Notes of grains, burned sugar, raisins, caramel, red fruits and a earthy plum note. Sweet malts, and a bit to carbonated. Boring beer

De Fontein Sakamai 2.8
Flesje bij de Klep. Lichtgeel van kleur, mooie kraag die ook blijft. Veel koolzuur en een weinig nadrukkelijk aroma, in het begin even wat rijstachtigs. Smaakt zoetig in het begin en eindigt droog zurig. Wel een apart bier maar dat ik het nou zo lekker vind.....

De Fontein Roerdaler Gagelbier 3.4
Pours clear blonde, no real foam. Smell is spiced. Taste is nicely refreshing. The spice def. shines trough, but in a very balanced way, contributing to a refreshing taste. Its balanced between sweet, bitter and dry. Refreshing, and easy drinking. Perhaps too light of a body for my personal opinion. Good carbonation.

De Fontein Maaskanter Tarwebier 3.4
(De Fontein Maaskanter Tarwebier) Bottle 330 ml from the local Jan Linders supermarket. ABV 6% Dark orange to light amber colour on the body, hazy and with lots of activity in it. Big white head, thick and with good retention. Aroma mostly of grains and nuts, it lacks the aromas you;d expect from a weizen. There is some wheat too but no fruity notes. Those are present on the taste though, along with some yeast, the aforementioned grains too, wheat, alcohol. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Mildly dry palate. Not bad, would be even more better if it was more aromatic.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy orange with a medium to big but fading white head and an aroma of oranges, gingerbread, toffee, roasted malts, ripe fruits, licorice and sweet spices. Taste is medium sweet with slight spiciness and a nice bitter finish. Far better than I thought it would be.

De Fontein Euleteul Winter 3.1
0,33l fles bij dwars amsterdam. Donker amber met een witte fijne schuimkraag. Geur is bessen en brandnetel. Smaak is in eerste instantie waterig, daarna komt de herbal en bessen weer naar boven, trekkende afdronk. Op zich had de moutbasis wat steviger mogen zijn voor een winterbier, de smaaktoevoegingen namen iets te veel de overhand.

(De Fontein Tantesbier) Bottle 330 ml from Secret Sinterklaas, into a big tulip, ABV 5.8% Dark orange colour on the body, slightly hazy, small off-white head on top with good retention, light lacing left behind. Aroma has the same sour hints as all the De Fontein beers I had till now, thankfully they seem to fade after the beer has breathed a bit. Like wheat notes, the spelt guess. Taste is better once again. Light wheat notes, grains, some toffee too with good bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste. Medium thin body, okay carbonation, nice dryness on the palate. Okay I guess.
