La Simon Dinkel, la bière aux trois tiers

Deux tiers de malt d’orge et un tiers d’épeautre non malté provenant d’un agriculteur voisin de la brasserie à Wiltz.

Cette spécialité non-filtrée a été créée en 1998 et titre seulement 4,5% d’alcool, ce qui renforce sa fraîcheur et sa délicatesse. Son trouble naturel provient des levures restantes à cause de l’étape de la filtration qui a été omise dans ce procédé artisanal.

Moins amère et plus douce qu’une bière blonde classique, cette bière est légère et digeste.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2005 Bottled version: Colour is hazy gold, due to the sediment - needed, don’t drink clear. The head, as with any wheat beer good!. Aroma is of wheat malt, with slight hoppiness. Flavour is a subtle wheaty maltiness, but a full bodied flavour, none of this nambi-pambi Regal taste, a super beer from this brewery, maybe they should do more like this. Draught version is a real winner.

Called dinkel so I thought it would be a dark beer. But it wasn’t. Bit disappointed but that was soon gone after smelling the aroma. Very nice and promising. The color is a bit yellow and I don’t like that but further it looks great. Hazy, nice lace, leaving a small head until the glass is empty. Good feeling, moderate full, light sweet, very well hopped. Little bit dry finish. Very good beer (finally one) from our Luxembourg breweries.

Bottle 33 cl. Tasted yesterday with William. Almost clear lightyellow color (with lightgreen shine), with a fine white head. Aroma fruits, grains, malts, (sarazen), sour touch . Medium body. Taste sweet, grains, malts, spice, hopsbitterness, refreshing.

Bottle. Slightly hazy, pale yellow colour, medium white head. Spicy malts aroma, rye bread. Rye bready taste, spicy. Medium to lightish body. Not bad.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Luxembourg. Non filtered cloudy looking beer. Light palate. Hint of fruit. Crisp champagne like finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Good.

BlackHaddock (7356) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle (4.5% ABV), best before 8th May 2010, drank and reviewed 6th Apr 2010. Poured into a Duvel glass. Very pale gold/yellow, with a slight haze within, the head was a pure white colour and well formed. The smell was wheat and barley along with a mini yeast ester. The taste wasn’t like a normal Euro lager, this had some flavours of grains and cereals, pleasant stuff. This is the last of my Simon beer samples given to me by a Luxembourg based Brit, cheers Marcus. Full bodied and intereting for this style (not sure what style it is to be honest). Anyway, well worth trying to find if in and around Luxembourg, which is more than can be said for most of the beers from this country.

JorisPPattyn (10006) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2004
Fuzzy, very pale-yellow, slightly irregular, snow-white head, lacey, reasonnably stable. Very fine, acidic nose, bit wheat-like, faint lactic like buttermilk. Acidic , acrid, slight tart initial taste, leaving place to much more sweet malts, then receding again to the acrid taste (isomerised hopoils?). The bitter, acrid taste is the only negative thing to report. This is actually quite nice. Diacetyl is there only in the nose.

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle conditioned. Gold beaten to the point of transparency under a rocky whip of suds, lacing ornately. Fresh herbal and yeasty aroma pitched halfway between unfiltered German helles and Belgian Blonde or saison; pollen, lime, honey, dung and a dab of butter beckoning the drinker in. Insubstantial beyond with a tickle of herbal hop, honey, houmous, buttered Cream Crackers. The initial spritz burns itself out pretty quickly, but the lace remains. Refreshing and slight. The best Luxembourgian beer I’ve had to date.

jaghana (6077) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is on sweet malt and cereals, aroma is malty, cereal like, caramel, notes of naturtrub pilsener, nice body, easily drinkable.

pivo (2685) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2006
Dusty sweet wet hay nose, hazy straw color, fluffy white head. Creamy malt, broad light end. Very dull bitter. Oily feel, rough. Almost like a Landbier. Fizzy, thin, light overall.
