bartlebier (4214) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2018
75cl lot655 bb12/2018, Geers, shared at JAN18 tasting. Big fan of this French-Flanders brewery and its up-to-date takes on their bière de grade/saison patrimony. - - Intensely fresh, even dank aroma of spring meadow, dandelion, lillies, rapeseed, citrus blossom on lighthearted yeast and earthy grains with a whiff of cornhusky smoke to give it that fresh-off-the-farm smell akin to Dupont's smokey yeasts - on point for a true "session saison" I'd say.. Intensely grassy bitter with notes of chlorophyll and blossoms, green plant stalk, dandelion milk and lime. Highly attenuated and naturally hopbitter with some milky unfiltered yeast and bready grain body. Affordable, sessionable, on point collab. - Highly underrated brewery that churns out more historically relevant, understated, modern-day saisons than beergeeks could recognise even if they bit them in the ass.

Maakun (6710) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle shared with my family. Clear pale golden with white head. Spicy yeast, grassy, lemon peel, straw, soft dried dusty herbs. Light dry malts with a touch of bread and dry grain husks. Very light sweet and medium bitter. Light bodied with dry feel and soft carbonation. Lovely, so much taste for the low abv.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 Mooi goudblond, licht troebel, fijne witte schuimkraag. Gist, meiklokjes, licht grassig, beetje citrus. Zeer goed van smaak voor zo'n licht biertje. Mooie ietwat droge afdronk, heel klein bittertje.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2017
(Thiriez / Jester King la Petite Princesse) Tap at Cafe Beugeel, Arnhem. Bright golden orange colour on the body, hazy, with a tall, soapy white head on top. Aroma of citrus, stone fruits, grass, lemon leaves. Taste has citrus, grass, peach, nicely bitter finish. Medium thin body. Very good, refreshing, perfect to start the evening.

rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - APR 16, 2017
Bouteille 33 cl / La Cave à Bières - Yverdon (CH). Blonde dorée voilée à mousse blanche moyenne et pétillement vivant. Arômes herbacés et végétaux, céréales et houblon. Saveur florale et herbacée avec des notes de levure citron et zeste. Malt maigrichon, amer bien présent et mordant de zeste et herbes. Pas mal mais trop typée houblon pour une bière de table.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2016
Bue à la pression au Borefts Beer Festival 2016. J’avais d’autres choses à faire que de prendre des notes ;)

Psytron (2562) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Smell of hay, malt, some fruit. Muddy brown colour, high white head. Aroma of straw, overripe fruit, some yeast. Light body, but not watery. Medium bitter, slightly sour. Wild carbon. Nicely balanced.

Desverger (13667) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2016
[email protected] 2016, Bodegraven - gold yellow coloured pour with a white head. Aroma and taste is fruity and light malty, lots of floral, herbal and grassy hoppy action throughout, hoppy bitter finish.
