Meteor Bière de Noël
Bue à la pression. Tu prends une bière de base, tu y mets du Picon sous-dosé et bim, v’là l’équivalent de la bière de Noël de Meteor. En gros, on sent un peu de caramel, un peu d’écorce d’orange, et une amertume assez prononcée. Rien de bien intéressant là-dedans.

Meteor Pils
Tap at Frenchy in Tallinn. Clear yellow with rather persistent off-white head. Sweet malty aroma and flavour. Wet grains. Wet cardboard hints. Grassy hops rather in the background. Pretty smooth and not unpleasant mouthfeel, but gets stale when the bubbling rests. Perfectly alright! Much better than most Pilsners available around here. Then again, I might not have liked it this much from (the clear green) bottle.

3.1
Meteor Blanche
French witbier with moussy, creamily lacing, egg-white head with medium retention and hazy pale straw blonde colour with notable greenish hue; the equal haze is perturbed by strings of vivid fizz here and there. Aroma of industrial - not sharp - lemon juice or even lemon-scented air freshener, soap, starfruit, bread dough, lime cake, fresh sorrel, faint banana, unripe gooseberries, clear coriander, Conférence pear, sourish grains. Fruity, crisp onset, somewhat ’clean’ but still with vivid impressions of starfruit, unripe pear and some gooseberry, softly sourish with a sweetish touch, quite spritzy carbonation well fit for the style but calming down quickly, soft and rounded, smooth but somewhat thinnish mouthfeel. The sourishness, combining a dim, basic soapy sourishness of wheat with a sharper, more pronounced lime-like acidity, makes for a very refreshing mouthfeel, with a lot of retronasal soft lime juice or sweetened, almost hand soap-like lemon aroma; the soapiness is further accentuated by the coriander, as is to be expected from the style. Goes down as soapy as it began, with this soft ’industrial’ lemony touch dominating the finish and, frankly, becoming a bit tiresome in the end. Not bad per se, lacks a bit in malty breadiness perhaps, but it has an outspoken lime-like quality which, though feeling a bit ’fake’, lends it a fresh character which is easy to appreciate. Simple and straightforward for sure, but different from the old Hoegaarden standard. However: it says a lot that the brewer himself recommends throwing a slice of lemon in it - something a Belgian witbier brewer would never do - and that this style, which has become a bit outdated in its country of origin, still remains fairly popular in France. It is cristal clear to me that France still has a long way to go in order to produce really interesting beers; there is a lot of hobby brewing going on throughout the country but they seem to be stuck in Belgian clichés rather than trying to experiment and find something new. Of course, copying 20th century Belgian ale standards is exactly how the beer revolution in e.g. Italy or the Netherlands started - but that was in the eighties and nineties... Let us hope that French brewers are willing to draw from the rich wine culture of their country and find ways to incorporate that know-how into their beers, like the Italians have done - then France may one day become a truly interesting beer country.

Kochersbier / Zornbier
Bouteille de 25cl de Kochersbier au Leclerc express. Bière limpide et jaune clair, le nez donne des notes de houblon herbeux et floral. L’arome est très proche de la Meteor Lager mais en vraiment très flotteux, peux de gout, amertume faible, pas de faux gouts mais on s’ennuie ferme.

Meteor Wendelinus Blonde
August 2016 - Bottle shared on level 42, picked up in the shop below One Canada Square. As ’Meteor Wendelinus Blonde’. Dark yellow, lightly sparkling, foamy white head. Aroma is buttery, spicy, some citrus, lager. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is sweet, thin grainy malts, buttery with a spicy finish. Not a great beer, but interesting to try a biere de garde. In saying that, it’s quite a lot like a tripel. (2.8)

Beer of the day at Brasserie Zedel apparently. Pours hazy yellow, thin head. Faint aroma of slightly artificial bananas. It doesn’t taste of a great deal, amd hasn’t any depth, but it’s fresh and went ok with what I was eating. Ok, but lightweight and anonymous.

Meteor Wendelinus Blonde
Color is a hazy orange-blonde with an aroma of fruity liquor and pool water but just fresh sterilized water and not in any bad connotation. Flowers, fruit, orange, spice and wheat. I feel like I have the whole French country side crop in my glass. All the subtle qualities of a rich dark Belgian beer without all the fuss

Meteor Wendelinus Tenebris
Bottled, 330ml from Auchan Hypermarket in Louvroil, Nord, France. Chestnut with no head. Quite flat on the pour this is surprisingly sweet in character with an oily palate feel. The sweetness creates a heavy feel to the beer, there are some spiy notes with a toffee flavoured finish. Too much for me.

Bottle. Clear yellow/golden and fizzy with a white head. Aroma of apples and grain - a little ciderish actually. Flavour is malty sweet with bready notes and only the slightest of bitterness. Watery palate and hardly noticeable as a beer of 4,2% alcohol. I’ve had plenty of lighter lagers with plenty more of everything not even counting all the hoppy stuff out there.

Bottle at Cote, Woking. 15/07/16. Aroma - a hint of hay, something floral, minimal. Dark golden - poor white head. Bubbley. Initially bitter, but then gets sweeter. But pretty bland. Soft body, the bubbles are noticable - the term chalky comes to mind, slightly odd palate. Not very interesting - however did go well with my salty starter and main course.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal (Asko Rogaland ølmesse): i likhet med Meteor Pils har denne klart lys gyldent, ok skum. Floral aroma og smak med kokte grønnsaker i førersetet. Say no more. Men en rating er tross alt en rating. Disse to var kveldens eneste virkelig røvkedelige øl.
