All ratings displayed on this site are personal opinions, and are not neccesarily to be seen as professional reviews. Some of these beers have been drank in conditions that were far from optimal. If you'd like a professional review of your beer, please contact me. Always interested in meeting up/sharing beers / trading beer . Next to beer, I have a big passion for Ice cider, Mead, and Sherry. Exploring the wine and spirit world asside of this all. Allow me to explain a bit on how I score. These are based on personal enjoyment. Quality & 'in style' are part of that enjoyment, but won't totally make or break a drink, if I myself have a different opinion. Whiskey : Rated on the website 'whiskeybase' ( account Kraddell ) Wine : Rated on the App / Site 'Vivino' ( Account named Kraddel . ) <-- with the dot. Still searching a medium for other spirits, so those aren't online for now. If you know anything, let me know ;) For all mediums, the score is decided like this : 100 : Absolute perfection. Must have sampled it at least twice, and be mindblown twice. 90 - 100 : absolutely amazing. I'd like a drink like this anytime, even if it ain't the cheapest. 80-90 : Very damn good. It'll depend a bit more on the price - but this is probably one to seek out. 70-80 : better than average . Will likely enjoy again if it's priced compeditive. 70 : Average score for anything with alcohol . // 50 : The absolute middlepoint ( pure H2O ) Anything with alcohol beneath 50 is simply not worth drinking (seriously, concider your liver) // 05 : The absolute, final downpoint . Songs shall be written about how this attack to the tastebuds has started a rage within, killing inocent bystanders for no apparent reason - other than the fact my life is ruined by drinking this. On the other hand, it's kinda interesting to try something THIS bad, so you should probably seek it out ! As you can see, I use the FULL scale , and a rating of 70 by myself isn't bad at all !

Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Scent is very phenolic, milder on the hops. Taste is full, fairly creamy, restrained bitterness, but it does end a bit burning . Milder aroma, NZ style hops rather than the expected USA. Not as soft and gentle as I like them, and far from a typical NEIPA.

Pours unclear blonde, medium sized white head. Scent is full, saison yeast phenols, grainy and full. Taste is sharp, bitter but also a tad tart. Funky phenols. Rough and raw, bitter finish. Grainy. Bit thin, slightly higher carbonation, some brett. Kinda strange, but I don't hate it !

Pours rather clear blonde. Medium sized white head. Scent is full, green, stangely herbal, yet smooth hops. Taste is full, fairly bitter, herbal and raw, vegetal hoppyness. Full on, bitter finish. Nice.

As a fan of the concept of non alcoholic beers, it's a great thing to see a first NA trappist ! The beer pours - hugely to my surprise - dark copperbrown. Medium sized , seemingly stable cream-white head. Scent is generic NA, tad nuttyness as well (chestnut), caramel, but all deeply covered by the common and generic, commercial-beer-NA scent of unnatural sweet impressions. Taste is overly so as well - generic, sweet, boring, and easy to tell it's NA. pearl necklace candy, toned-dpwn-sugary fruityness (but harldy natural). Whiff of caramel. Not great, not even within the commercial beers. At least different in color, to the generic blonde I expected...

Pours a medium dark amber-brown, surprisingly clear. Small, stable white head. Scent is mildly showing it's age ( this beer was originally brewed for one of my 10k beers, which was an Icebock of this one. However, I never tried this one fresh, and decided for whatever reason to age all my bottles of Ymir basebeer) , but dried fruits are very recognizable, whiff of caramel, fairly complex dark breadyness as well. very vineous, I could be tricked to think this was aged on red wine barrels for sure. Taste is showing a surprising amount of bitterness, over a fairly thin body - both are surprising elements compared to my expectations. High to very high carbo, still very vineous, as it's got some acidity just like a wine does - it's not at all a sour beer though. Shame for the overcarbonation, otherwise a more than fair basebeer - yet so very different to what I expected. These could take a few more years, I reccon !

Light gusher. pours clear pale blonde, soapy, yet relatively stable white head. Scent is saison phenolic, bit straight forward but certainly not bad. Taste is very sharp ( overcarbed aspect doesn't help that) dry, to the bitter side. A bit of a generic, yet enjoyable, yet overcarbonated classical BE saison style. Ends a bit iffy, def not sweet, but not as dry as I would have expected. Still, refreshing and enjoyable, even with the extreme carbonation level.
