I had the Surfine after I had a Josenhofke tripel from draft first (https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/jessenhofke-tripel/64693/)
I love that Jesenhofke from draft. Never had the bottle.
The Surfine (also from draft) tasted a bit flat after that. However, because there was enough of it in the glass after a couple of sips the taste came more to the front. It is a saison, which means it is perfect to quench ones thirst. At 6,5% it is a beer that is easily drinkable with a light sweet taste. I would not try it again as it was okay for the that moment, but in the end I prefer a more bitter beer. (https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/surfine-saison/286516/)

One of my five favorite Belgian beers, Bez. I do not love their new package design, but the remains delightful.

#105909 ^ yes, a very nice beer indeed.

A last one during Manhunter. (What a score by the way!)

#105922 Mateo, I am at a beer festival. So many choices to taste. Insane. A lot of Belgian beer. And from the rest of the world.
I started with Doerak. A Dutch IPA. Very nice bitter taste.

Edit - as it is early and I have not eaten much I’ll try some low alcohol beers :-)
Now a Dutch session IPA called Roadrunner.

If you use the app Untapped (I do not so not sure how this works) there should be a listing for the beer festival 24uurs van Maastricht 2018 with all the beers on offer.

Edit- now a Portugese draft called Frank APA from brewery Musa

Bez, I'm on the website now and it looks amazing. So many Belgians. And a beautiful day for it as well. Chin chin, my friend. I'll expect a detailed (hazy) accounting of yourself at a later date.

Haha.
Well, I chose this one:

And my account of the beer festival is as follows:

Roadrunner (Iron Door Brewing Co.): very nice
Frank APA (Musa): very nice
Doerak (Van Moll): very nice
Ceci N'IPA (De Feniks): very very nice
Selfish Session (De Feniks): nice
Toetëlèr Blond (Brouwerij Den Toetëlèr): nice
Hop Art (vandeStreek): very very nice

A couple of days ago I had this one at home:

Very nice!

And in an hour and half I am off to the pub again. They are only open for one more week and then they will close shop after 35 years. I have drunk there all most every day from 2000 - 2010. The last eight years due to life changing I hadn't visited.

#106047 First off, thanks for all the great reviews. It gives me beers to look forward to. Second, it's wild fun seeing how many IPAs there are over yonder. It's the backbone of of the craft beer industry here in the States. Lastly, that is a shame about your local watering hole. It looks like a really great spot.
