24/IX/16 - on tap @ Borefts Bier Festival - BB: n/a (2016-1181) Thanks to the Belgian ratebeer crew for sharing today’s beers!

Clear amber beer, creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, some caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter, some overripe fruits, unpleasant bitterness, chemical touch. Aftertaste: bit sourish, dirty bitterness, don’t like.

Hopverdju (828) - BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2016
Donker amberkleurig bier met beige schuim. Geur: moutzoetig, karamel. Smaak: licht zoet, mout, kandij. Lichte koolzuurprikkel. Smaakt eigenlijk als een zoeter tafelbier.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Tap I believe at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1. Bref: dry autumn leaf caramels and dried stonefruit frame a spicy sessioner between bière de garde, maltier saison and toasty English bitter. Earthy aromas and something like curry or curcuma abound in malt, hop and yeast profile. Will revisit in a saison tasting.

330ml bottle bought @Johnny’s Off License (Rome). Pours amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, light roasted notes and ripe fruit. Flavour is unbalanced, very sweet and malty. Medium body, light carbonation. Ok.

ZodiacM (907) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Bruin troebel bier. Aroma van mout en gist. Smaak van gebrande mout, caramel, licht bitter, beetje waterig. Niets bijzonders dus.
