Bavik Kwaremont 6.6°
Hazy golden with a smallish, firm head. The aroma is light malt, yeast. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a soft hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Lingering malty finish with a lasting yeasty impression. Pleasant aroma and very basic flavor.
Vleteren Bruin 12° Oak Barrel Aged
Pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a light beige head on top, almost two fingers in size, thick enough, with average retention and light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is dried fruit, honeyed caramel, light grape and port notes, vanilla, dark rum soaked bread, drier barrel elements. Taste is caramel and fruity port, dark toffee, yeast and honey, spicy bitterness, finishing with light chocolate and brown sugar. Smooth, medium heavy body. Pretty nice.

Honeyed lemon. Thick and sticky white foam. Attractive aroma of lemon rind, brett, and rose petals. Deeper swirls brings out sweetish malts and rich toasted oak. Soft but creamy carbonation. Iron comes and goes, with continual acidity and a restrained brett flare. Finishes slightly moist and sweet with a gorgeously harmonic culmination of oak and toasted malt hulls. Absolutely amazing.
