Assignment by John Vanloo of San Francisco-based Waterloo Beverages LLC to develop & manufacture the Westoek Ale 6% ABV at & by the Deca Brewery. As this was a very complex recipe to deal with, Deca asked Urbain Coutteau, brew master at Struise to collaborate on this project. 4 grain Blond dry triple ale married to a soft English bitter. Urbains Magnum hops for bittering, Styrian Goldings for different aroma hop gifts in the boil, late boil & flame out, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh for dry hopping.

Beachmaster (491) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 20, 2014
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. pours a clear dark amber with a massive white head which slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is sour fruit. Taste is very dry, crisp, with little of the typical sweetness. Different, but not outstanding. Not a bad effort, but not one of my favorites.

Barreras (1670) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a light yellow color with a fruity aroma. Taste is very light and apricot fruit flavors that disappear quickly. A lasting fruit flavor on the palate, that isnt too sweet but has notes of sugar. A tasty beligan ale.

Vignale (3594) - Malm, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2014
Flaska frn Etre Gourmete. Mrkt gyllengul och disig med lgt vitt skum. St fruktig doft med honung, mogna pplen, sav och lnnsirap. Fruktig smak med pplen, pron, persika, honung. Ltt beska. En st, men nd vlbalanserad belgare. Knns som en ltt fruktig trippel eller en korsning mellan en engelsk strong och en belgisk blond. Hur som helst mycket trevlig.

Christos (5365) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip, ABV 6% Orange golden colour on a clear body. One finger of white froathy head, with average retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Faint aroma of yeast, malts, peaches, grains, light funky. Taste of malts, sugar, funky notes, some grass. Moderate bitter on the aftertaste. At first the taste is a bit weak but it manages to become interesting soon enough. Medium thin body, average carbonation, mildly dry palate. Overall okay beer, seems a bit boring initially but the funky and yeasty notes give it some depth.

tightslice (1158) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Pours a cloudy apple juice / cider with a mild, musty aroma. Taste is yeast, orange peels but overall dusty and forgettable. Very fuggy indeed.
