Kristall-König (2102) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Festival der Bierkulturen 15.05.2010 Eher bedeckt hopfiger Geruch, dem eine zurückhaltende Zitrusnote innewohnt. Antrunk dann sehr aromatisch, übergleitend in eine trockenherbe orangige Mitte mit deutlicher Bitterkeit. Im Abgang nochmal verstärkt bitterer. Gefällt.

bottle@bar: bottle calls it an IPA and is probably closer to an IPA than a Belgian Ale, my bottle was slowly but continually gushing, resulting in more head than beer and the head made it look like they put dishwashing liquid in there, foaming like crazy, I am pretty sure that the whole thing was unique to my bottle because that cannot be normal, right? beer itself was hazy, bright golden, smells sweet hops with some flowers and fruit in there, dry finish, full, clean, sharp bitter taste with some sweetness underneat, flowers, fruit (pear & lemon), agressive carbonation, lots of yeast

Bouteille de 330ml, partagée avec Le Slovak. Au départ ce qui surprend de cette bière est la mousse rocailleuse qui perdure jusqu’à la fin du verre. Le liquide est tant qu’à lui est doré. Le nez est surprenant ne ralliant pas les autres commentaires. L’ammoniaque est au rendez-vous avec les brettomyces, j’ai bien dit les levures sauvages de la famille des bretts. En bouche il n’y a rien de distinctif face au nez, les bretts sont présents. On cherche les fameux houblons de cette IPA revisité. Lot 313. La note médiane a été donné.

(Bouteille de 33 cl, lot 313) Le liquide a une robe dorée. La tête mousseuse est un sommet de neiges éternelles. Une large dentelle ceinture le verre. Le nez de cette IPA est passablement touché par des herbes amères et des fleurs légèrement sucrées. La présence de la levure me semble bien débordante, allant même jusqu’à présenter des caractéristiques habituellement rattachées aux brettanomyces. Étonnant sans être déplaisant. Au goût, la levure sauvage refait surface avec des saveurs de basse-cour. Les houblons réussissent aussi à s’affirmer et la combinaison Amarillo et Chinook se traduit par des saveurs épicées et herbacées au caractère bien amérisant. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen à faible avec une effervescence très active et une texture pratiquement fouettée. La finale se fait sur des notes bien mordantes de houblons dans lesquelles apparaissent quelques petites pointes sauvageonnes. En résumé, ce liquide qui fourmille de microbes semble avoir été autre chose dans le verre des précédents ratebeerians. Dans cette optique, une autre bouteille s’impose et au plus vite. Pour tout don, les téléphonistes prendront vos appels au 1-888-404-4040. Un reçu d’impôt sera émis pour toute offrande dépassant les 24 bouteilles. Merci!

1/8/10. On tap - thanks to Steve at kickbacks for the hookup! Mild spicy aroma that almost hints at smokey with a mix of citrus. Very nice citrusy flavor with a yeasty bite. Yum!

Grima (2035) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2011
The first glass (which consisted of 99% of foam) I could tip it. The second glass is now 90% of foam, so that the test set at the end still holds good 100ml! It only takes 5 minutes until I can start the test. Once you can see some beer, it is now slowly out an orange-yellow, well turbid beer. On the ground, relatively large particles floating around, the foam holds the position mercilessly. Then, when finally a smell test is possible, it smells bitterhoppy and good spicy. It starts rather mild, much milder than most IPAs. Fruity, sweet, with a slight hop tinge. To the center part it is somewhat alcoholic in the mouth, also comes the hop by intense, fruity acidity increases, ie, it will total more intense flavors! Until then finish remains very intense.

From Beers of Europe. Thankfully, this didn’t explode on opening, but pouring was a bit of a nightmare, battling the enormous foaming head, with trying to keep the sediment in the bottle. The result was a wonderfully aromatic beer, that looked like mud, with a lot of silt at the bottom. The taste is very fruity, fresh and full, some caramel is present, with a dry, biscuity finish, that turns earthy later on, after the huge foaming head has settled. I actually had to spoon out about 9 tablespoons of foam! The alcohol is warming and rich and this could have been a really excellent beer, if it wasn’t for the massive over carbonation.

Bottle and served in snifter: GUSHER that caused the beer to produce a very hazy amber hue with lots of floaties, The huge foamy head finally faded after a minute or so leaving very nice lace in it’s wake. The aroma has notes of Belgian yeast and some clear candi sugar, pils, pale, caramel/crystal malts, cloudberry, peach, and slight resiny pine hops along with a hint of lemongrass. The taste is more towards the Belgian Ale and less towards an IPA as the nose let on. Still there is just enough hop love to let you know this is a nicely hopped Belgian beer. The bitterness provide a nice balance against the sweet malt and yeasty character of the beer. The mouth feel is lightly aggressive and vibrant with a chalky and slightly astrengent tannic finish. Overall dispite the gushing beginnings, this is a nice brew that I enjoyed.
