De Fontein Herfstbock
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby reddish, brownish beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma of mostly red fruits, some weird funk and caramelized malts. Flavor is basically the same, without the funk, but more fruits and caramel. Really basic, rather boring and really not interesting at all. Softly carbonated and quite short in light sweet finish. Meh.

De Fontein Session IPA
Glass at the brewery, Amber, dark brown beer, medium head. Aroma is malt, caramel, and a hint of citrus. Taste is the same, very sweet, and a small hint of bitterness in the end. Is it Session?, no its 5.8% Is it an IPA? not, in my opinion, its not. Is it a good beer? yes its very drinkable, maybe a bit too sweet.

(De Fontein Limburgs Blond) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5.9% Orange coloured body, mostly clear, with a tall and thick white head on top, average retention. Aroma of malts, leaves, old grass, hints of sourness as the others I had lately from this brewery. Taste is indeed slightly sour, with leaves, vegetables, some malts, old grass and faint medicinal alcohol. Medium thin body with high carbonation. Nothing special.

De Fontein Limburgs Dubbel
(De Fontein Limburgs Dubbel) Bottle 330ml from microbieren, served into a big tulip, ABV 6.4% Brown coloured body, slightly hazy, with a good sized and thick, tan head on top, very good retention. Aroma has the same sour notes of all their beers I had lately, no matter how long it breathed in the glass it was just sour notes and grains. Taste is nothing special either, thankfully not as sour as the aroma implied, grains, faint caramel, some dark fruits. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Weak dubbel.

De Fontein Vlaamsche Reus Blond
33cl bottle at De Vlaamsche Reus, at Wageningen in the Netherlands (26 V 2016). The home beer of this cosy bar in Wageningen. A hazy amber with white foam. Yet not the best beer the bar has, Im afraid. A blonde ale with a dash of grape juice, making this a brew with a true terrible nose. Lots of dust, cellar and muggy scents. Nothing more. A firm malt character, Belgian yeasted even, with an unpleasant nose, but a rather OK mouthfeel. Good bitter, sweets, malts balance.

De Fontein Herfstbock
Bottle. Aroma slightly malt and coffee. Full of taste: caramel, coffee, in taste spices like cinnamon, maybe even basil. Dark red-brown color, not clear. Medium body, soft-average carbonation, finish slightly bitter. Not very expressive, but ok. I was a little surprised about the spices. I also had it on draught, but liked it less: it was too watery.

De Fontein Maaskanter Tarwebier
Aroma is ietwat vluchtig zoet, niet diep of dik genoeg om enorm te imponeren. Waterige caramel en (jaja) tarwekoekjes en iets prikkelends scherp. Schuim zakt meteen in op bruin-grijs bier. Altijd leuk om wat te proberen, maar soms valt het wat tegen omdat het niet verrast en ook de herhaal factor nihil is.

De Fontein Inspirator Zomerblond
26/VIII/15 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: X/2016 (2015-1126) Thanks to Geroen for the bottle!

Clear pale yellowish beer, fizzy crackling white head, falls down quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of banana, sweet, band-aid, bit chemical. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very watery start, some citrus, grassy hops, little herbal. Aftertaste: spicy touch, soft bitterness, very yeasty, banana, watery, fruity touch. No clue what fruit would have been used in this one, though...

33cl bottle bought at the jan linders supermarket. Poured a fuzzy darker amber colour with a slight off head. Notes of grains, burned sugar, raisins, caramel, red fruits and a earthy plum note. Sweet malts, and a bit to carbonated. Boring beer

Flesje bij de Klep. Lichtgeel van kleur, mooie kraag die ook blijft. Veel koolzuur en een weinig nadrukkelijk aroma, in het begin even wat rijstachtigs. Smaakt zoetig in het begin en eindigt droog zurig. Wel een apart bier maar dat ik het nou zo lekker vind.....

De Fontein Roerdaler Gagelbier
Pours clear blonde, no real foam. Smell is spiced. Taste is nicely refreshing. The spice def. shines trough, but in a very balanced way, contributing to a refreshing taste. Its balanced between sweet, bitter and dry. Refreshing, and easy drinking. Perhaps too light of a body for my personal opinion. Good carbonation.
