bottle and keg, special

If we could sum up Everyday Anarchy in one sentence, it would probably be “it doesn’t have to make sense.”
Take everything you were expecting about this beer, and file it under I for Irrelevant. This French white wine barrel aged imperial saison has a plethora of intertwining aromas and flavours.
Malts: Extra Pale Cara Wheat Rye
Hops: Motueka Saaz Bobek
Twist: White wine barrel aged for 355 days On the nose, there’s raisin, caramel, sherry notes, apricot, plum; a fruit punch explosion from your glass, mixed with the presence of some sophisticated alcoholic aromas.
On the palate, there’s a running battle for dominance between bitter, sweet and sour. Peach melba, redcurrant, sour plum, spice, syrup, chewy toffee; the list goes on.
Everyday Anarchy is glorious insanity. Take the time to delve into its twisted charm, and you’ll be rewarded.

SimonTja (262) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2014
Very syrupy, some sherry white wine and apricot. Fruity, syrupy texture, very strong alcohol aroma. Taste is very peachy, wine is there, some acidity, and again, very very sweet. Could be good, but too sweet, too much wine, the "saison" character is zero, and mouthfeel is very syrupy.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2014
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a thin head that disappears quickly. Nose - somewhere between honey and syrup. Actually verging on toffee. Definite barrel influence dominant. Taste - repeat of the nose. Palate - rich and full bodied with a big creamy texture and a fairly good finish despite the richness. Overall - quite annoyed with this one as I thought combination of white burgundy barrels and saison would be excellent. Good idea I thought but didn’t work out.

JorisPPattyn (7909) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Seconds of yellowish head from the cristal-clear raspberry-coloured beer; big, lazy-bubbled. Sweet fruit nose, verging towards the syrupy; oxydation, old oak, fruitliqueur. Liqueurish flavour, delicate despite the fruitsyrup streak Perfect twining of kitch and great Art, of natural and chemical(-like). Some rosé dessertwine springs to mind, in the best of ways. Warming up, a flavour as from blue cheese (the hops?) Flat as a pancake. Syrupy-oily-viscous; liqueurish in one word. It doesn’t make sense, indeed. Do I like it because, or despite this?

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Clapham Junction’s opening night; 13 August. Poured a clear, bright, dark amber, with a dense white head. Aroma was massive, lots of dried fruit, honeycomb and apricot. Grainy flavours, some oranges, peal and straw. Finish was mellow and very nicely balanced, with some tinned fruit, marmalade and hop resin.

Bottle from a shop in york. Copper with no head. Raisins and sherry is right! Taste is very sweet, and a bit sour almost tart (tugs at the saliva glands). Don’t get any bitterness. Carbonation is prickly and body Is medium, plenty of oil. Wouldn’t drink again at this price.

Clear red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Tangy dried fruits with apricot and peach. White wine tang. Rounded of my mellow vanilla oak. Comes together very well.

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are vinous, dried fruit, caramel, and grapes - with a slightly dry finish.

gEUS (1055) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours clear orangy-amber with no head. Wine alike intense fruity nose: peach, lychee, apricots, orange juice, raisins and sweet white wine . This is the best part however. Medium body, no carbonation whatsoever, and then the palate is mess of everything: sour sting, unpleasant bitterness, some alcohol burn, ... without any balance. Taste is then again yeah... bland.
