Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Sampled @ ZBF 15. Red brownish color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sourish, overripe apple, green applepeel. Not good imo, tastes infected. Could be intended I guess, but I don´t like it at all.

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Recreation of an old Aarschot beer tradition, apparently commissioned by the town of Aarschot itself; very thin and quickly dissolving, off-white head over a misty bronze beer with yellowish hue. Aroma of overripe peach, yoghurt, green apple, wine vinegar, walnuts but also rainwater and a disturbing presence of something sulphuric, not unlike rotten egg, so I suspect H2S. Restrained sweetness and peachy fruitiness in the mouth, some caramelly maltiness, smooth and rather thin body, dry tartness but not in the most elegant way (as in sour milk). Could have been a lot better, in this form it does not really honour the Aarschotse Bruine tradition, I’m afraid (not even technically: the original Aarschotse Bruine beer was made by blending a brown ale with a lambic, this one is a brown beer to which lactic acid is manually added, a bit like the former Zulte ’oud bruin’, which, needless to say, does not enhance complexity).
