Holy shit, just walked in to La Cave à Bulles and got this immediately shoved in my face. Don’t my if I do. Small head but interesting light brown appeal. Like it’s hiding something. While being very fruity at first, it’s actually Moderately spicy later, quite layered and with a biscuity malt base. Taste isn’t anywhere as sweet as expected (or feared perhaps), although this older bottle might be one reason. In fact a bit watery. However, I enjoy it a lot as it brings quite an unique layered approach to both taste and aroma. That’s much to Simon and his guest of which I already forgot his name. Sorry!

bartlebier (2537) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2014
Draught@Potaupré source, Chimay 01V14. Very much the lighter-bodied mineral sister of the more bodacious Rouge, with higher effervescence, aquateous table beer body and that same honey & nuts malt/yeast quality rounded by spicy hops. Not sure the bottled version that pops up in bars once in a while needs seeking out.

Bottle@home first post CBC 2014. Haze dark yellow. Two finger great foam. Rubber nutty yeasty notes. Very gentle smooth dry taste. Not much bitterness to begin with. Simpel light and delicate.

PapaVillum (630) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2014
0,33 l, flaske, 4,8 % ABV, gave fra Værste Fætter og Anne - tak! 4. maj 2014. Honningfarvet Trappist Abbey Ale, ufiltreret, med fin hvid 2-3 cm skumtop. Frugtrig aroma henad banan og mandarin... lidt humle i baggrunden. Smagen er rig og fyldig for en øl på 4,8 %. Lidt sødlig, men overvejende bitter/sødlig. Anderledes end vores traditionelle bayerske pilsner. Let drikkelig og med pæn lang bitter eftersmag. Indholdet af kuldioxid er på medium. Har set frem til at smage denne "Chimay-munkenes hverdagsbryg", og jeg må sige, de har lavet det udmærket for sig selv.

Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, fruit anc citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a yeasty finish. Not bad although pretty disappointing from Chimay’s lofty standards.

Fris en fruitige Chimay. Je proeft de kruiden. Heerlijk verfrissend biertje.
