Bright copper and crystal clear with occasional carbonation within a T'Zelfde stange. A brief almond fizz immediately forms a ring.

Sweet caramel reaches out while pouring before turning towards tea. Warmth transforms this beer towards lemon, green apple and faint floral notes.

There is a balance of moderate bitterness, tartness and sweetness. Lemon and lime work with quiet maltiness. The beer is very similar to a sweet tea with honey and lemon right through a light lingering and bright finish.

The body is light to medium with a silky yet scratchy texture. Carbonation is faint and fine. The finish is mildly refreshing and tending toward dry.

This made for a good lunch beer that I imagine would pair well with a reuben or long conversation.

Seems more like a darker Gose, but a weak attempt at that. Low carbonation, thin body, light in flavor except for some notable salt, tart, bit of fruit and malt

Small white heat, robust yellow color.

Interesting aroma, containing funky acidity, yeast and fresh apple.

Very refeshing, altough carbonation isn’t as high as expected. Still, sour green apple and a decent, dry tartness add to that impression. Chewy, dry, mouthfeel with a little sparkling, topped by a warm spiciness. Yeast adds character to the beer, supporting the bitterness very well, also adds smoothness. As nice as the beginning is, there is no real follow up, but a watery finish, going along with a discreet bitterness and hints of salt. All in all, this is a unique beer, which deserves an ending, with a little more punch.

Pours light amber, two finger fluffy head, with great retention and really sticky.
Smell of dark bread crust, tobacco, tartness, dry citrus peel and fruity esters.
Sourness surprises at first, but for a very short while. Rather crisp start, lots of sour lemon zest, some tastier citrus too, plus peel, goes to some toasted bready malts and red apple juice. Green herbal notes towards the finish, getting drier, with some wood notes and dry leafiness, reminding of English hops.
Medium body and carbonation, refreshing for a bit, but aftertaste gets covered by roasted malts, autumn leaves and lactic acids.
This felt a bit too weird and funky, old recipe or not. Enjoyable, but an open mind and a trained palate sure do help.
