Alengrin (2993) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Now available in Belgian supermarkets, in bottles and cans. This rating is from a 50 cl can. Off-white, fiercely crackling, loose head which mysteriously but litterally vanishes in seconds much like the ’head’ on a coke would, leaving a flat, cristal clear, pale ochre to light orange blonde robe with steady sparkling (clearly hauling from artificial carbonation). Aroma of iced tea, industrial caramel, strong and very off-putting smell of Bacardi mixed with Coca-Cola, hints of macaron, toasted (but in fact nearly burnt) bread, burning plastic (quite strong and sulphuric!) and a chemical, nearly gasoline-like smell for which I’d have to turn to my friend the engineer to in order to determine which chemical compound it might be; lime extract is probably there somewhere too, but after this ’attack’ of horrible things, I don’t even care anymore. Flavour starts sweet and sugary as well as herbal with tons of lemonade-like ascorbic acid - ice tea springs to mind again; soft carbo but still stronger than expected based on the surprising lack of head; some grainy and metallic undertones and then there it is: a watery, sugary, thin and disgusting finish of mineral water, ice tea, lingering sugar, lingering lemonade-like ascorbic acid and an artificial brown rhum aroma - as if someone took a Cuba Libre and watered it down. A horribly oversugared, thin but all too persistent ice tea taste is left behind, with a trace of (generic) rhum. Beer features, in the sense of malts or hops, are near absent. This concoction is only interesting to me in my search for worst beer ever, and damn, this makes a very good case for it. Absolutely repulsive - and unnecessary to say, I poured most of it down the drain. There really is nothing good to say about this - an infernal beverage, almost frightening in its hideousness. It does not even try to appeal to beer drinkers, but then I ask myself: which kind of people does it appeal to? I don’t want to know... Too bad I cannot give a plain 0 for aroma, appearance and taste. How was I to know that somewhere in this world, there was a beer even worse than Desperados... Hit the bottom here, worst beer ever so far - this will surely become one of my pet hates!

This is really not good at all! The bottle has a nice gimmick with the eyes of the skull, but that’s about it!

Bottle. Chemical yeast and malt aroma. Obnoxious fruity flavour. Some hints of coconut.

BlackHaddock (4677) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Clear 33cl bottle: bought in Jerrys Cigar Bar, Brugge of all places and drank in my hotel room in ’Notre Dame’ ten paces away on 7th Feb 2015 after a fun day at the Brugge Bier Festival. Clear, light golden body: sweet grainy nose and taste. Not good, not good at all. Sugary and nasty thing with a Rum twist, avoid like the plague.

jice (165) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2015
Difficile d’y trouver quelque chose de positif. C’est trop sucré, c’est un cocktail à base de bière. Dans la tendance actuelle des boissons alcoolisées pour les jeunes, c’est à destination des soirées festives et entre amis, mais pas pour des amateurs de bière.
