sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
Draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Brune foncée, col beige léger. Arôme malté grillé sur une pointe de lactose, note presque café et grillé. L’ajout de sarrasin se fait discret pour un malté et grains restant agréable. Palais est malté, grillé, ici aussi ce côté lactose pour un fruité moyen. Pointe de houblon et citronné en fin de bouche. Le tout reste léger et facile à déguster.

15 cl. draft sample @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark brown with a big creamy beige head. Sweet, light mocha nose, lightly lactic (buckwheat I assume?), sweet creamy, light white chocolate, touch watery,… Taste is sweet mocha, milk chocolate, light white chocolate, lactic, light sweet roast, sweet coffee,… Body is a bit light but very easy to drink. Almost like a delicious mild. Nice & easy to drink, delicious.

Draft. Copper, beige head. Toasted malt, grain, low sweetness, medium earthy hoppy notes. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Borresteijn (7078) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2013
On tap at Beer Temple. Clear dark reddish brown colour, off-white head. Sold as a milk stout. Aroma of burnt caramel, light roast, chocolate, veggies, quite sweet as well. Flavour is medium-sweet, chocolate and caramel, some hard roasted malts, cocoa, vegetal and leafy bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not great imo, as with most beers from this brewery so far.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Aroma of chocolate with an earthy/nutty presence (I imagine this is the buckwheat) and light/moderate resin. Appearance is murky brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the buckwheat is a perfect substitution for the nutty malts usually found in the style. Palate is bubbly. Really quite good.

3.1

Draft. Color dark red with small head. Aroma caramel, malt, bread. Taste sweet, malt, caramel, fruits, spicy.
