JorisPPattyn (9712) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2016
Very dense & fine, lightly amberish tinted head, fast dwindling over foxy copper beer. Caramel, wet dog, maltcookies, sweat. Lightly bitterish caramel, sweetness arriving as an aftertought, before taking over; Very malty brew, in the end. Parsley, bit leafy, dry cookies. Very light body, spritzy carbonation. Aftertaste acquires some marzipan flavour. Too little, too late. The Smithwicks spectre roams even the craft segment.

sebletitje (9627) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2016
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Original, Irish Craft Beer #1, shared with 77ships. Cuivré, col crémeux blanc. Arôme au nez fienmetn houblonné typiquement anglais dans l’approche rappelant l’EKG, petit rétro malté avec une note ’bready’. Palais est léger, pâle et Otter? pils, houblonné modéré ajoutant une fine amertume assez anglais. Levure reste sur la fin avec une petite fraicheur citronnée. Reste très classique.

77ships (8661) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2016
Draft glass shared with Sebletitje @ Moeder Lambiek Original. Dark orange, little white head. Nose is malty herbal, muted rustic pine, farmland, more herbal than pine forward. Taste big dull old apple, almost cardboard-like, bland slab of cooked apple, sugar, paper, bland malts,… milky body on top, stale cooked apple. Boring at best, big almost oxidized apple sweetness profile doesn’t do much for me. Pass.
