kraddel (8324) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2017
At estaminet de brouwerij. Pours rather dark blonde. Small layer of white foam. Smell is paint thinner, very chemical - which is weird for a brewery I trust to use no chemicals.taste is mild bitter. The juniper berries really make it metallic , dry, paint thinner. Plain bad. It was probably better when less old... Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2014
’Saison’ commissioned by a hobby brewery in Lauwe with milky, sticky, thin and unstable head and warm golden blonde colour, cloudy. Aroma of orange, pineapple, banana, honey, cognac, coriander, cake, yoghurt, dust and cardboard. Citrussy freshness in the onset, sweet fruity with rather sharp carbo, yeasty and estery, bit powdery, ’dusty’ mouthfeel with light coriander, mild hop bitter finish with some ’whiny’ sourishness - my sample was probably very lightly infected. tderoeck (9978) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2014
5/I/14 - 33cl bottle from De Bierloods / Zytholoog (Adegem) @ my parents’ place - BB: V/2010 (2014-17) thewolf (12631) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2012
Clear orange to blond beer, huge towering creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing. Wow, this doesn’t look like a beer that’s 5 years old! Too bad about the gushing part. Aroma: spicy, coriander, pretty fruity, banana, some honey (because of ageing) and some citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: well, talking about a beer that’s holding up well with age. Very fresh and spicy start, lots of coriander, citrus, bit grassy, bitter hops, grapefruit. Aftertaste: very fruity, citrus, bit floral, honey, bitter touch, pretty yeasty.

A hazed golden saison with a thick collapsing white head, floaties, some gunk in the opening, gushed. In aroma, very mineral salts, with light juniper, oxidized notes. In mouth, still decent, with some nice oily biscuit malt, astringent spices, some gin notes, but oxidation comes in finale. OK. Bieropholie imports, forgotten in my fridge, BB May 2010. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Pours a hazy yellowish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, hint of citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. Almost like a Belgian Wit.
Koelschtrinker (20591) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Fruchtiger Geruch, etwas süßlich-hefig, bananige Note. Hopfiger Antrunk, dabei leicht süßlich. Im Hintergrund baut sich eine herbe Note auf, die aber erst im Nachgeschmack zum Zuge. Dort ist das Bier recht würzig, die Süße macht das Bier zusätzlich süffig.
