COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Après le succès de la Bracine de Printemps et son houblonnage puissant, nous souhaitions développer une nouvelle gamme de bières de spécialité, encore plus ancrée dans la tradition brassicole. En effet le houblon était très largement utilisé dans les bières de nos ancêtres essentiellement parce qu’il en assurait la conservation. anosteke est donc une bière résolument houblonnée lui conférant ainsi une amertume et une longueur en bouche incomparables. De plus notre anosteke est la première bière française dont les émissions de CO2 liées à sa fabrication et son transport sont compensées (cf www.actioncarbone.org). anosteke = traduction phonétique de « tot anoste keer », expression de chez nous signifiant « à la prochaine »

Prufrockstar (832) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Pours clear apple cider copper with rocky white head. Aroma: well, that’s awfully pleasant. Bubble gum and cotton candy on the nose. Sort of a Dupont saison thing going on as well, with lemon, pepper and cracker. Taste: despite the cotton candy on the nose, this is remarkably dry. Mineral, pepper, with a short, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Bubblegum in the aftertaste. Copper finish picks up after the first few sips, but stays in check. Alcohol becomes a bit more present as well, lending something of a spicy quality. Palate: light/medium body, average carbonation. Overall: I’m actually digging this quite a bit. Wasn’t really expecting to coming into it, but I’m glad I didn’t let those reservations keep me from enjoying this one.

Also, watching Sideways while rating beer. It’s funnier than I remember it, probably because I drink ("taste") now. Of course, I’m only half an hour in as I type this, so it may fall apart before the end, but so far it ain’t bad.

after4ever (6089) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2014
750, corked. Aaaaand that’s it for the Rare Beer Club. Enough mediocre $46 shipments for this kid. Pours a hazy pale amber with a fizzy white head that hangs out for a while. Mild lemon and verbena nose, soft mineral notes. Fizzy light body. Starts out caramel, then goes coppery, then gets really coppery, and finishes really coppery.

JDBaker11058 (1223) - Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Appearance: clear bright gold with a frothy, bubbly bright white head and decent lacing; second pour of the 750 revealed substantial sediment that changed the glass to a very hazy yellow. Aroma: bright citrus up front, with herbal honey, uncooked pie crust, green tea, and pepper. Taste: bitter citrus and floral hops, with herbal notes, a hint of tart green apple, and a bit of caramel and peppery yeast. Notes: dry, bitter, and lingering herb garden characteristics. Notes: Labeled as "Biere de Garde" but the write-up from the Rare Beer Club noted it’s the "Blonde". Pretty hoppy, herbal, and bitter for the style. Nice palate, but would have preferred a bit more honeyed sweetness to balance.

Pours a cloudy, straw-golden color with a very short-live large bubble, sudsy head. Bubble gum, Belgian spice, and banana on the nose. Full body with some light syrupiness. Flavors mimic the bouquet. Some pilsener bitterness at the finish.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Pours a lasting white head to a cloudy golden body. Laces well. Wheat and semi-sweet fruity smell, notes of alcohol behind. Sappy sweet fruity taste profile, lightly spiced. Sweet ending with alcohol. Quite nice and smooth, rather sweet in the long run (Tromsø 19.02.2014).
