Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
One-off porter-like experiment for ZBF 2009. Light yellow beige head, very dark red brown colour, near to black. Complex fruity aroma, vinous with strong presence of lactic acid, sour cream, brambleberries, medium dry sherry, cassis, passion fruit, wine vinegar, coffee, white grapes. Smooth fruity taste, quite strong carbonation, sharp citrussy tartness almost like unsweetened orange juice, caramelly maltiness, dark ’forest fruits’, woody accent, ending in a lactically sourish dryness. Certainly something for those who appreciate Belgian-style sour beers but more of a very dark oud bruin than a porter to me.

Mortlach (1456) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
16/03/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bruna con riflessi mogano/rubino, abbastanza limpida, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso bretta, note di ciliegie, caramello, acetone. In bocca è acetica da morire, con lievissimi sentori superstiti di ciliegie, frutta rossa, note dolciastre, maltate, finale aspro, molto astringente. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Si salva al naso, ma in bocca è ai limiti dell’imbevibile.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Dark brown color. Strange aroma, sweet, dusty caramel, good body strength; sweetish caramel flavor, with light fruitness and decent sourness. It lacks some freshness in character to be really appreciated.

Koelschtrinker (14076) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Unangenehm saurer Geruch nach saurer Gurke, krass störend. Saurer Antrunk, der im ersten Moment fast so schlimm wieder Geruch ist. Im Mittelteil gibt es kaum eine Änderung, erst im Abgang wird die saure Note erträglich und fast angenehm. Wenig bis kaum malzig, die Säuerlichkeit wird holzig. Ein extrem eigenes Bier, dem ich nicht übermäßig viel abgewinnen kann. 12/9/6/7//8

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2010
At De Dolle, a treat sorted out by Chris I think it is? Whatever, a treat. Ta for the holiday Mes, Sim, Harrisoni. Dark brown with a small tan head. Great smell, fruity and sour and soy sauce. Unique, very unusual. To me anyway. Very tart and sour, fruit, almost a wine like quality. Thanks for the treat everyone. A special beer.

Christian (11981) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2010
Deep ruby brown with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, berries and funk. Dry and tart chocolate and roasted malt flavour, with a lasting aftertaste of coffee

Ungstrup (31419) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Draft. A brown beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of bread, wood, brettanomyces, caramel, and vinegar. The flavor is acidic with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a tart finish.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
On tap. RBESG Rome 2010. Pours a hazy deep orangey golden with an off-white head. Tart and very sophisticated aroma of wood and honey with a tart edge. Medium body, has a light whiff of hard roasted malt, but it’s the massive sourness and acetone that dominates. Maybe the starting off point was a Porter but the result is much closer to a Flemish Red. 030610
