laiti (8531) - Tampere, - JUL 31, 2012
33 cl bottle at Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 18.10.2013
Slightly sour and tart aroma with citron and earthy notes. Flavour has earthy notes, some citron and hints of apples. Foamy and slightly sticky palate. Tart and dry and finish. Like a witbier with bretta.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Lichte waterige kleur, volle kraag. Ruikt naar gist. Lichte smaak, bitter, fris-droog. Licht romig mondgevoel, niet onprettig. Blijft niet hangen maar drinkt lekker weg.

Mpuntmuts (370) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017
Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Smell of yeast, musty basement, banana peel and herbs(Coriander?). Taste of the yeast is prominently present, the mix of the malts cause it to feel a bit messy I think. Thin to medium bodied and medium carbo. Out of balance in my opinion, needs work.

Met Pje Dakhuus 31/10/2017 Seef of Seefbier is de naam van een historische streekbier van de stad Antwerpen. De Antwerpse Brouw Compagnie heeft het in 2012 opnieuw op de markt gebracht. Het is een troebel blond bier met een kruidige smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium body, creamy, almost flat; poured with a 2-3 cm head and it went down almost immediately after. Although it seems like a Belgian blond, it almost feels like a German weißbier. Bottle art was the reason I got it, but can't say I'm impressed.

JaKeAFC (1310) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle at kulminator, antwerp. quite old, maybe 2015, bbd 24/12/2016. milky yellow color, fruit r white head that fades soon. Aroma is grainy, a bit malty, vaguely fruity, lots of yeast and starch. There are some herbal/groot and citrus notes. Taste light sweet, salty, light to medium body, strong carbonation, dry finish, yeasty, noticeable alcohol. Not really that good but local and our of the ordinary, it was a must to me. I think this one would be better very young.

Decent Belgian Blonde, yet hard to stand out from the masses. Not particularly special.
