Beersiveknown (5110) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 27, 2016
bottle at home for 2016 European secret Santa courtesy of V_Duquerroux, cheers Vincent!
burnished gold with fluffy white head. quite grainy, dusty, slight diacetyl on nose. full bodied, very underattenuated for a siaon unfortunately, some bitterness but overwhelmed by caramel sweetness, could charitably call it a biere de garde. Not a big fan Im afraid.

Bottle at home. Aroma is soft malt, peppery spicy yeast, grassy hops, floral garden notes, a tad herbal, hay. Flavour is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Very nice balance between yeast and hops, grassy and green herbal floral with lots of peppery yeasty notes. Good one.

bartlebier (3625) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Full tap sample at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1, merci. - Another missing link between hayish bire de garde, dry and zesty saison and UK bitter: light-bodied, greenish, forwarding both the earthy straw of barley husk and almost a wild hedgerow hop character I am very fond of. Classic, to be revisited bottled.

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
33cl bottle consumed at Brasserie Thiriez in Sept. 2014, bottled Dec. 2013: Coppery golden. Fluffy, pasty and creamy white foam exhibits stellar retention. Very bright and clean aromas of lemon, melon rind, lilac, gum, pecan skin and toasty malt. Soft and pillowy carbonation. Lusciously hoppy, with polished lemon atop a coarsely earthy punch of wood-root spices. Zingy, appetizing acids perpetually sparkle with fresh lemon as they deposit rich oily notes which are embraced by the refined and well-structured malt. Fluffy gum notes abound in the center before fading softly into the richly toasty, semi-lush haylike maltiness. Immaculate attenuation is beautifully augmented by the hop oils which produce a marmaladelike effect. Finishes dryly malty with assertive lemon zest bitterness capping things off. Another hopcentric beauty, with lovely malt character to boot. In other words, just your typical excellence from one of the best brewers in the world.
