31/X/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 28/X/14 (2013-1017)

Clear deep orange to amber beer, aery off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: honey, ripe to overripe fruits, funky (is it bretta?), orange peel. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: if I ever tasted an Orval clone! Eat this, Mikkeller! Bit funky, somewhat fruity, orange peel, pretty bitter hops. Aftertaste: bretta, though probably artificially bread, bitter adn dry hops, lots of citrus, some grapefruit. Lovely beer! For me, this is the winner of the series.

Bouteille de 333cl@ChezJosy. Bière ambrée à la robe rousse et au col moyen. C’est le bouquet d’épices qui pique au nez : coriandre et zeste d’orange, puis la levure et une amertume florale. En bouche l’amertume est prononcée et mise en concurrence avec le bouquet d’épice qui en devient presque agressif si on laisse pas la bière s’ouvrir. Ensuite, c’est le malt et le sucre qui adoucissent ce festival de saveurs. Le palais est sec. La finale est légèrement amère et doucereuse. Donc une bière mal équilibrée qui laisse une drôle de lourdeur mais avec une belle longueur dû à cet assemblage malts, houblons levure.

33cl bottle at home, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: dark blond beer, small stable off white head. NOSE: grains, bananas, German like. TASTE: grains, bubblegum, westvleteren like weird aftertaste, still can’t really say what it is... Nothing special here

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from De Hopduvel. BBF 28/10/2014. Brett, spelt malts, coriander, orange peel and Smaragd hops are listed amongst the statistics and ingredients. Very murky brownish fruity amber, very high carb. ~ insta-gone head. Sticky dark fruits syrup in the nose, prune jam, light dark bread, quite hoppy, fruity hops, light bread. Taste is big prune jam (interesting), other grains (spelt I suppose), dark bread, ripe dark fruits, light musty sweet red grapes, even touch ripe dark berries, definite brett presence, sweetish with brown sugar and syrup but also some hops. Very high carb. & murky body. Messy but I am a big sucker for beers like this. Bit puzzled as to why they did the competition if they released all 4 beers.

Bouteille 33cl @ Délices et Caprices, séance dégustation. BB 28/10/2014. Orangée-ambrée léger, col blanc épais. Arôme présente les caractéristiques type belge dans la levure tirant sur des esters fruités. Note orangée, pelure avec ce bouquet typique de blanche mais ici plus centrée sur les malts. Palais reste assez douce avec encore ce côté ester fruité, pointe d’épice. L’ajout de brett est très discret et développe malheureusement très peu le caractère des bretts. Fini sec avec des notes malts pâles. Ok, mais reste typique de nombreuses belges. L’idée de brett était intéressante surtout pour un projet qui se veut novateur, mais ici, le tout reste trop dans l’ombre.
