2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bought from the malting pot in Brussels. Overly powerful taste of cardamom and a bit too sweet for my taste but enjoyable.
More generally a great idea behind the Brussels beer project.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Absurdly towering dense ivory head, irrregular and leaving shards of lace over hazed orange-brown beer. Heavy, perfumed-spicy nose, the cardamom jumping out of the glass with the head. Dishwashing liquid with christmas herbs. Sharp bitterish spicy, very wry to astringent. Again the cardamom, but all its wry flavour dominating its aromatic vectors. Tannine-like. Really unpleasant mouthfeel, as drinking tea from horsechestnut or acorns. Medium body. Cardamom - as coriander - is a marvelous spice. In oriental food. NOT IN BEER.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from De Hopduvel. BBF 28/10/2014. This one is also made with brett & spelt as well as cardamom and candy sugar. Smell is huge black liquorish, black bread, unpleasant spices, sticky, something unpleasant for me, syrup, something in the smell rubs me the wrong way, light rotting eggs maybe?… Taste is black liquorish, thick rye and black bread, heavy spices, slight dark fruits, once again prunes esp. prune jam, not much in the way of bret. Candy sugar, sticky sweet roots and red wine vines,… Over carbonated. No there is something very dominant taste / smell in here which rubs me the wrong way… maybe the cardamom? I don’t know. My least favourite one of the 4. Ugh too bad, I enjoyed the other 3.
