Bontus (800) - Flanders, - JUN 23, 2012
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

Golden orange yellow. Aroma apple peels, slight oaky sour wild. Tastes caramel, slight dry musty grains. Some buttery grain character. Dry.

JoeinDahlem (1521) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2017
An odd, tasty beer. Pours hazy orange-gold, smelling of chamomile, clove and nutty wet grains. Taste starts mildly sweet then runs though a light, lemony acidic tang to arrive at a spicy, moderate bitterness. Lingering clove, yeast-zest and alcohol in the finish. I wonder what sort of mash they do on those grains? The spicy phenolics manage not to put a foot wrong, and that light bready acidity keeps it in balance.

Pyrmir (6088) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2017
330 ml bottle in Brussels. Hazy blond beer with thin white head. Aroma and taste are grainy, almost spicy malt notes, soft and mellow yeast with grassy herby hop notes.

Moolesen (558) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Golden with a white head. Interesting combination of typical wheat taste with some ale tones. Not sure it’s my taste. Not bad at all, though. Medium lengh.

3.2
nathanvc (493) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2017 Pours hazy ochre/blonde with a lasting, lacing-leaving, foamy, white head. The aroma contains wheat, citrus, lemon peel, yeast, hay and bread. It tastes light sweet and light to medium bitter with a long, dry finish. Creamy texture and fizzy carbonation. Balancing somewhere between a Witbier and a Hefeweizen, with an authentic feel to it. Good.

2.7
Salwal (486) - GERMANY - APR 5, 2017
From the bottle poured into snifter. Pours cloudy yellow with intense white head. Yeasty spicy nose, Cloves. Taste is yeasty watery, slightly citric.
