bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Sample draught @BBF 02/2014, ZA. Complex malt-aromatics ranging from candied orange, maple syrup, prune jam and cassonade, evened out by a modern dry palate and great choice of dry hops to top off the desert dubbel base with spicy orange zest and some green hop bitterness. No traditional Belgian estery fumes whatsoever. Easily one of the more accomplished, elegant and finely composed beers, at risk of being overshouted by bolder un-belgian concoctions at the festival. - To revisit from bottle.

33cl, new exclusive brewfirm Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly fruity/spicy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, ’This to celebrate my 2000th Belgian Beer Rating. Always nice to see some new Belgian breweries and brewfirms coming out! Starting my life as a wine taster I didn’t think I would get so far with craft beer... I still pursue all bottled Belgian beers I havn’t rated yet, except low alcohol. Many thanks to those fellow Beergeeks who helped me out in this never ending venture...’ Note to Joris: the deal still goes on... (as soon I will have another milestone!)
