Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Two snifters at Dark Horse in the sunny afternoon (Friday). Great surroundings as always, nice people. Entirely too cold at first, this is tough to figure out. Nice, somewhat dark yellow; head lasted a bit. Sharp young brettiness - snappy, tart, just a hint of stink. Moderate to lesser acetic acid than I would have expected in a plambic. Artusory’s foeder samples were better (and, more acetic than this was). Warmed up OK, a little hefty bodywise, even. I need more to truly tell, but this is middle of the road at this stage. I hope they bottle some and keep some in wood! Update: Aroma is killer (lots of fruit - peach!- very dry) at a warmer temp. Update again (Saturday): Actually this is pretty harsh stuff. If you drink a lot (like 2/3 of a growler). There’s a lot of packets of stuff thrown at this beer, to not the greatest effect. Update again, the third day in a row (Sunday) sampling this beer, back at the brewery in Marshall - I was told this was an accidental batch of Amber that had gotten infected, so the brewers threw "wild yeasts" into it to see what would happen. There are no plans to store or bottle the beer. It is pretty refreshing, but seems thrown together, as I indicated before knowing the history of the beer. Still, a slight upgrade.
