50cl bottle - Freaky indeed. Unpasteurised gusher of a beer, unbalanced wild nose with a confused malt backbone, piny hops floating freely in a wild taste profile and funky foam that is all over the taste...You can tell tha tthe ingredients used must have been high-quality, but it tastes as if nobody bothered to line them up...contaminated bottle or is this Alvinneís idea of freaky?

Well this was the most wild gusher I have ever had to deal with. A medium explosion of beer upon opening then I poured mostly foam into the glass and the bottle continued to create a steady snake of foam coming from the 500ml bottle. I eventually got it to the kitchen sink after sucking the foam on the bottle to try to prevent the mess from getting worse and it continuespd to foam from the bottle for a minute or more until the head in the glass subsided to where I could add more.
So the appearece after all of that is a hazy honey brown color with obviously a huge head that eventually with some patients can be a loose frothy tan head that falls to a lumpy mottled layer. the nose is some fruit, hints at tartness, some floral and citrus notes. The taste is a subdued malty beginning, then some fruit, hop bitterness with a lasting dry bitter ending. Body is very light with of course active carbonation but it is fairly smooth as it is not coursely structured. Overall fairly good though Iím not sure if it is worth it after my fiasco and loss of part of the bottle contents.

Itís time for Euro2012, and this time Iím starting it off with this bottle kindly provided by BelgBeerGeek. Thanks man! 0.33l bottle thatís slowly but consistently expanding by itself out of the bottle. When the massive fluffy off-white head has calmed a bit down, I can see that this one has a quite delicate but heavy murky glowing orange body with some big dark floaters at the bottom of the glass. It smells kinda Belgian with that lovely fruity yeast, sweet malts and some tones of forest, but itís also quite hoppy. Not so much fruity hoppy, more bitter hoppy Quite nice. It lacks a bit in the depth, in other words a bit thin in the body with a light oily texture and itís lively carbonated. Flavors are quite dry with lots of references to red berries and soft fruits. A bit stingy-hoppy as well, and I get tones of dry cones when drinking this. Definitely an interesting one this, and a great beer to kick of the Euro2012. 08.06.2012
