Erzengel (8444) - Wuppertal, - NOV 21, 2012
Vielen Dank an Sean! Dieses dunkel-bernsteinfarbene IPA ist mit fnf verschiedenen (und leider nicht benannten) Amerikanischem Hopfen aus dem Yakima-Valley in Washington-State veredelt worden. Sehr schn grasig-malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist hopfenintensiv, toll grasig und harmoniert interessant mit der spannenden Malznote des Krpers. Zum Hauptteil hin baut sich diese Paarung noch weiter aus, es entstehen leichte Kaffee-Gras Aromen, Rstmalz ist vorhanden, wird aber von den Hopfentnen deutlich berlagert. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr angenehm extrem hopfig, aber nicht zu sehr (so dass man noch Aromen schmecken kann), und sehr lang anhaltend. Total trocken. Dafr frisch und sffig. Tolles Bier!

Belle ambre translucide, avec de beaux reflets cuivrs sombres et une mousse ivoire avec une tenue respectable. Nez qui sarticule principalement sur les houblons, complexes, et les armes dagrumes non moins riches ! Trs belles notes florales et vgtales (foin, paille, luzerne, herbe frachement coupe, champ de bl sous le soleil, pissenlit, illet, bergamote, jasmin, rose...) et de fruits (citron, litchi, pamplemousse, orange sanguine, kiwi...). Les notes maltes ne sont pas en reste avec ce ct crales chaudes et pain frais qui sassocient merveille avec les notes houblonnes. Cest dlicat, complexe et trs quilibr. En bouche, la premire gorge rvle dimposants armes et saveurs de pamplemousse qui dominent nettement le reste. La carbonatation est bonne, la texture est douce mais manque cruellement de corps, lalcool est mince (4.1% seulement), lamertume est assez sage avec une attaque au dmarrage et une baisse de rgime qui ne redmarre jamais. Cest une bire vraiment rafrachissante par contre grce ses armes et saveurs dagrumes, de vgtaux et de fleurs. On peine aussi retrouver les levures... La longueur est comme le corps : mince. Il manque vraiment quelque chose pour crer de larrondi au palet. En conclusion, de merveilleux armes au nez mais une texture et un palet qui ne suivent pas du tout. Dommage... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

DijkBier (323) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
On draught in Zindering Utrecht. Clear reddish brown with light tan head. Soft aroma, but also served too chilly to fully explore itself. Light hoppy, fresh fruity,not quite specific Taste is light bitter and light sweet, slightly watery. Rather soft carbonation and soft bodied. Not a very interesting brew, but a fresh and light, low ABV mid-dark ale.

Inoven (566) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
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.

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 (518) - 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 (114) - 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.
