COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal beer Agriturismo A Belgian ale made in collaboration with Labietis with handpicked pine shoots, elderflower and lemon peel. And you can taste all of that. It’s fruity and flowery and green! BELGIAN ALE7%12IBU2017

For our Agriturismo we went back into nature to connect with the trees, ourselves and each other. We invited our Latvian friends from Labietis and together we ventured into the Dutch dunes to pick our fresh ingredients. We charged in the sun and got our hands dirty! We navigated a corn maze, slopped hogs, picked fruits, fed animals and enjoyed our trip in nature. At Labietis, they know what it’s like to celebrate the pagan lifestyle. They are known for their herby beers and are often out and about, crafting forgotten beer styles that are deeply rooted in authentic traditions. Agriturismo is the expression of our meeting. It’s a crispy beer with the smell of fresh herbs from the real outside. Handpicked by us, for you. We settled on pine shoots because it was the season and then we added elderflower and some classic lemon peel. And you can taste all of that. It’s fruity and flowery and green! Artist Matthijs Booij colored the label with his free interpretation of our nature trip as a leisurely Summer night, while also subtly encouraging nudity at all times. Thanks Matthijs.

R4N5H (1352) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 33cl bottle picked up at Oedipus Taproom and enjoyed at home of 17-Nov-2017. Hazy golden amber in colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grains, herbs and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of herbs, fruit, elderflower and pinecones. Sweet with a bittersweet finish. An odd one - a cross between a herb beer and and a farmhouse ale.

PotjeBier (3768) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2017

sjogro (4840) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle at home. Hazy golden/ pale amber with white head. Sweet malts, elderflower, citrus, vegetal juices, cow parsley and massive Arnica, pine, mild spices and herbs. Moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium body, soft malty feel and soft sparkly carbonation. Very lovely rich aromas and well balanced. My love for the herbal and floral mix juices from Labietis runs deep. Can’t believe these low scores. A complete forest hike in yo face! Bier met tieten.

loscovar (766) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - OCT 23, 2017

2.9
suurjuust (3806) - ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy yellow beer, big white head. Nose is estery, pine, citrus, yeast, but as the beer warms, everything gets covered by the pine. Flavor is slightly sweet and malty, estery, citrus. Finish is bitter with more pine. Aftertaste is sticky pine resin, pretty bitter. A strange experiment.

3.5
Plovmand (8630) - Grindsted, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle provided by Borresteijn. It pours murky golden with a huge bubbly white head. Fresh lime and lemon grass in the nose. Light piney and sweet yeasty. Orange notes. The flavor is fresh spicy and malty with notes of lime and lemon grass. The elderflower gives a fresh soapy whiff to it. Not bad at all.

3.9
Alusmamuts (2169) - LATVIA - OCT 2, 2017
Yellow, bit hazy with rich white head. Nice yeast aroma with fresh citrus notes. Nice taste rich of fruity yeast and citrus notes, however pine notes, which are coming later, are too harsh and this harsh bitterness lasts in the aftertaste.

Cokemonkey11 (1106) - - SEP 17, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Scent is gorgeous notes of flowers and herbs. Fuck yeah. Taste is lovely notes of dense herbs and sweet properties with a bit of stickiness and sweetness. If this was #1000 it would be my perfect 5. Gorgeous.
