Draft sample @ ’t Schooltje // this apparently made using the ice water that was left after making Five Squared // same as BD VII with BD VI & V // hazy golden with a surprisingly big & stable white head // nose is dominated by wheat, some light hay, farmhouse, dough, very lightly fruity & very light spices // taste is lots of wheat, touch sweet, light, small bit but definitely in no way overtly watery, hay, barnyard, slight spaces, body feels a bit light but in no way watery, oatmeal, hint of herbs, very, very mellow hops // body is wheat, slightly light but no watery // not bad for its abv, neat for the abv. // agreeable & nice for the Bob who drove everyone to “t Schooltje

Had on draft at Churchkey.

Pours a very still dark golden amber color, a bit cloudy. There is zero carbonation, no head. According to the bartenders, due to the low alcohol, the brewer was worried that any normal level of carbonation would begin to damage the flavors of the beer.

The smell is very sweet. Strong malt and honey. A bit musty. Floral hints.

Taste is very flavorful for only being 1.5%. It's heavy on sweet malts, orange peel, good balance with just enough hops to let you know they are there.

Mouthfeel is thin obviously due to the style paired with low carbonation, but overall, at 1.5%, this is great.

Poured from tap at the Brewery while carlos held "class" :)
I guess this beer is the result of cold runoff of another super string beer...or something like that.
Poured into a mini DeStruise tulip...pours a healthy amber orange with thick thick foamy head. Aroma is fantastic! So full and aromatic...hops, sweet honey...
Taste is really nice, hoppy but very malty and full. This has to be one of the, if not THE best low abv beer I ever had. Its just bursting with flavor. Really nice brew for the DD...why should they not be able to have good beer also and not amstel light?!
