Maakun (6339) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2017
Tap at The Black Smith. Slight hazy darker golden with off white head. Peach, sugar, dry grain husks, bread, pear icecream, some spicy yeast. Quite sweet and just medium bitter. Over medium bodied.

Tap @ Little Delirium, Amsterdam. Ruikt niet heel uit nodigent. Dus go voor batch 3.0. Gele kleur en zwaar troebel. Smaakt fruitig met een beetje zurige nasmaak en een klein bittertje. Maar er zit iets in de nasmaak wat ik niet zo lekker vindt. Maar dat mag voor een experimenteel biertje anders bereik je nooit de perfecte samenstelling experimentum batch 3 kan niet wachten. En deze laten we gewoon bij wat het is en wat het moet blijven een experiment.

On tap at Cafe Cambrinus Brugge. I got the bar woman to check the keg and its Batch 2 Clear amber colour slight haze. Lasting white head. Sweetish amber malts. Yes a malty amber beer with some hop dryness on the finish. Ok.

Sampled at Zythos 2017. Thnx for sharing, Ruben and Tim ! Pours cloudy, unclear amberblonde. Stable, fluffy white head. Smell is bit bitter. Taste is sweet, reminding me of dyacethyl, but not sure dyacethyl is actually in there. Malty. Mild smoked, perhaps ? i did not like this one...

23/IV/17 - on tap @ Zythos Bier Festival 2017 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2017-513) Thanks to kraddel for sharing today’s beers!

Cloudy blond beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adheisve. aroma: smoky touch, not much smell actually. Bit yeasty. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, bit sweet, malty, pretty yeasty, ripe banana. Aftertaste: same, with a hint of peated malts? If you’re experimenting with a smoked beer, don’t be afraid of the smoke. Let people taste and smell the smoke. At least, I suppose that was the experimental part of this brew?

Thank you for sharing German speaking RB Crew! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ ZBF 2017. Completely different recipe, they made it more rounder than batch 1 since apparently people found batch 1 served at Bruges Beer Festival a bit harsh, low portion of smoked malt. They should start listening to the common dominator is what I think. This beer is far too mellow & pleasing in general even ignoring the experimental name. I suppose that they have a client base to please but makes the experimental moniker bit of a joke. Hazy orange, little white head. Nose is very Be yeast, malt, hay, grain, clean, okay but plain, lacking the USA hop flourish from batch 1. Tase is BE yeast, banana, hay, mildly bitter, very faint smoke, sugar, white bread. BE yeast, banana,... body. Very aptly brewed, there is nothing to fault here, I rate this one the same as the first one but I hope for more weirdness honestly. Just go all out if you will fail, you will fail gloriously.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 Bottle. Hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is milky yeasts, estery, peach. Taste is milky yeasts, straw. Medium carbonation. Okay beer, but what is experimental about this?
