Drinking from tap. In the aroma some fruit. The unclear brown beer has a small off white head. In the taste liquorice, cherries. Medium carbonated.

blackisle (2084) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Poured into a teku glass. Clear deep ruby brown, small stable frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; sweet fruity nose, cherries, raspberries, caramel, wood (much more complex than expected); taste light heavy sweet and light to medium sour, candy sugar, cherries, bit woody, light spicy notes; becomes more sour in the middle part leading to a fruity sweetsour finish, woody undertone; medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation; better than expected (being a Martin’s beer), perhaps bit too sweet but enough sourness for the balance.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - APR 30, 2016
Produite à Bruges grâce à une technique de brassage ancienne consistant à mélanger des lambics et des brunes de haute fermentation. En bouche parfums de cerise et de framboise associant avec talent l’amertume et le sucré. Intéressante. Une bonne surprise.

Brown/red color with quickly falling beige foam. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel, malt, berries and wine-sourness. Taste is surprisingly pleasant with a good sweetness and a good amount of malt compared to other beers in the category. Slightly sour but overall more on the sweeter side with notes of berries and caramel. Reminds me a bit of a russian softdrink called квас (Kvass). Overall this was better than I had imagined and actually a beer I would buy again to enjoy with some friends. Thumbs up!

Smaak is kersen en appel sapje, met een fijne bitter in de nasmaak. Nasmaak had wel iets dikker gemogen, drinkt nu te makkelijk weg. Aroma heeft ook veel weg van vruchtensap, en iets van cruesli. Paar belletjes zorgen voor paar schuim-streepjes.

Beer style that tends to provide great products of a great delicacy. But this is too flat, too much like a normal crevesa. Too little gas and subtlety.

Rating #1112, fra The Bottle Shop i Brügge

Mahognibrun øl med luftigt skum der forsvinder lidt for hurtigt. Let ristet duft af klassisk tehus, men noget utydelig duft... Syrlig tehus-agtig smag med appelsin, blommer og hindbær, men derefter en utroligt kraftig metallisk bismag, der komplet ødelægger oplevelsen. Den lader dog til at være overdøvet, så snart man tager tår nummer to, så det er til at håndtere. Jeg bliver desværre nødt til at give den en lavere karakter, p.g.a. dette førstehåndsindtryk. Fylde og tyngde som forventet - hverken tynd eller tyk. Det er da en ganske fin øl, men et stykke fra den belgiske topklasse.

Beau mariage entre les saveurs d’une brune douce et ronde et le tranchant fruité et acidulé des levures spontanées aux délicats parfum et goûts de cerise et framboise.

Aromat słaby. Trochę owocowy, nuta słodkawa, lekko kwaskowe. W smaku słodko-kwaskowe. Jak na leżakowanie w dębowych beczkach to słabo. Jest jakaś nuta, ale nie do końca beczka. Dość ciekawe, ale nie powala.
