From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. Strongly herbal-soapy, making it hard to drink

Syfher (366) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Hum, long time no see Huyghe... but your beers are always so dissapointing. Were in front of a brown-red colour, with a sweet aroma. The head seems fuzzy, as the taste is. No real palate...

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 24, 2016
330ml bottle from Beervana. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a very big white frothy head that lasts for long and leaves a cute film. Aroma is fruity and spicy with the classic Huyghe profile. White wine, pears, white grapes, melon, prickly pear, apple and some flowers. Clear peppery and other spicy hints. Some phenolic hints. Taste is mostly sweet with a slightly bitter alcoholic-herbal touch. Fruity notes of apples and pears dominate with lots of alcohol punch complimenting and, sometimes, overpowering it. Not bad, but the alcohol is too present. Medium body, high carbonation, a bit spritzy. Finish is sticky. It leaves a long aftertaste. Not the best by Huyghe but a mildly interesting experiment.

Bier met een een sterke smaak van gist. Geeft hem een bijzondere smaak maar mij iets te krachtig en muffig.

I_LUV_BEER (230) - - APR 29, 2016
Served in a tulip from a bottle. Pours golden colour with medium head. Aroma is malt, bread, yeast. Taste is bread and yeast with banana notes. Quite heavily carbonated, almost prickly. Nice one.

bartlebier (3776) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016
33cl bb06/2018, dutifully revisited after at least 5 blissfull Guillotine-free years... Bref: A fuming grave for heaps of fusely peach molding over, stressed yeast and sugary cereals. - Macro soap pores for a head, ridiculously sugar-sweet in aroma (old macrobakery peach tarts going stale in a Lidl bin), slick and coating the palate in unhealthy refined sugars, with an empty mid (artificial lemon, banana) and an obstructing metallic bitterness reminding me of cooked leek, unripe banana peel, old bread yeast and chestnut husks. - Even after three small sips at 3 different temperatures and the following drainpour this remains an instant headache in a milk ceramic vase. Well after the 200th celebration of the French Revolution, French and Hungarian exports seem to be booming...
