Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Bottled. Quite a lot of lemon and soy sauce in both nose and taste. Unpleasant, mediocre. Definately not an interesting or pleasant beer.

Bottle -- Yippee, a beer style I’ve never had before! A yellowy gold with suspended yeast and not a lot of carbonation. A medium rocky white head with not a lot of retnetion, although it never completely disappears, but quite a lot of lacing. Aroma is gentle: mainly matly with a hint of bitterness. Not as watery as I expected. Flavour is gently malty with some toastiness and sour fruit at the end. Not a bad drop.

bottle. Golden yellow, large head. Malty, slightly hoppy. Well-balanced and very drinkable beer.

These little cheat sheets for us drinkers are invlauable. With such a relatively unknown beer such as a landbier in this country one wouldn’t now what to expect. From the description the intial slight ffffft when cracked caused me no concern. This pours well into the glass with a slight haziness and light biscuity colour, reminiscent of mum’s butter cookies. The nose is simliar with a touch of wheat and maltiness. I enjoyed the lack of carbonation in this beer and the ease of it going down, due largely to the fact that this was the first beer after a day in the sun that had me waterproofing a deck area. After 12 hours most beers would have been good but I was pleased with the softness and smoothness of the beer as it slid (quickly) down.

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 After downing a ’Tiger’ I was after something a little more vibrant. This was next on the list and indeed turned out to be a light and easy quaffer. Tasted from the bottle and poured into it’s own stem glass. A short soapy white head formed, atop a slightly hazy pale gold body, and clung firmly to the glass as I downed it. Very loose yeast particles continued their dancing in suspension, good to see it’s not filtered. Bitter grassy aroma, initially, with a lot of sweet honey malt coming through as it warmed. Similarly sweet in the mouth, reminiscent of this morning’s breakfast. Lightly toasted malt, grains and honey. Light bodied and a little yeasty, it had mild carbonation and only a touch of leafy bitterness in the back. Finishes off with a short grainy and slightly soapy swallow. Not bad, undemanding but still a decent, light, summer beer.

This is my first of this style of beer. The colour of the body was light golden with a compact head. Aroma was mix of soapy yeast and some hops. Taste was fairly thin and lacking any sort of body, maybe some malt characters coming through and some pear. Still I drank it down easy enough.

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 29, 2002
golden-bronze colour, fine head, hoppy and light fruity aroma, smooth and full-bodied, sweet with a light fruity aftertaste - a good zwickel

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2002
A very blond beer. The aroma is hop and yeast. Small head. A bit sweeter than St. Galler Klosterbräu. There is no trace of a palate.
