Flesje gedeeld met TomHendriksen. Donker amberkleurig bier matig stevig schuim. Aroma is fruitig. Smaak is fruitig en hoppig maar trekt meteen weg. Nasmaak blijft iets wrang.

TomHendriksen (235) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
Fles gedeeld met Inoven na een dagje Bouwbeurs. Het is een donker roodbruin bier met een volle zachte schuimkraag. Het ruikt lekker hoppig en smaakt licht bitter. Helaas is de smaak redelijk vlak en wat snel weg.

Had this on draft last week and was really disappointed. No great hop aroma or flavour. Bland overall

Heidbummer (448) - SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2017
Pint at the Basement. Pours ruby, foamy and persistent head. Very soft aroma - malty and biscuit. More of that on the taste with a hint of char and bitterness. Very drinkable, and better than most Meantime offerings these days.

Keukeman (109) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 Appear: .33l bottle poured a dark and hazy, ruby beer with a thin soapy off white head. Aroma: berries and citrus, fresh hop aroma. Taste: slightly sweet barley malt, bitter from the hops. (Apparantly there are 5 different hops in it) Tastes more like alcohol than %4.1 vol.Palate: really high in carbonation, not really pleasant to drink. Overall, pretty special beer, interesting flavours, not really my style.

Bottle ar the Battle Axes (Chef & Brewer), Elstree. Hazy amber-red with a thin off-white head and moderate fizz. Toffee, berries,dust and a hint of grapefruit. Pleasant at first but quickly grew dull. Yet another Meantime brew that failed to live up to early promise.
