Bière ambrée « maturée » comme dit le brasseur en barriques de chêne, apparemment du Médoc, mais le Médoc est tellement vaste... Elle titre à 8,5% abv et contient des épices. Couleur ambre/roux moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout dans le verre, bien vives. Mousse beige en nappage crémeux. Arômes de fût de chêne imprégné de vin, vinaigre de vin, prunes blanches très mûres. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur le raisin, le porto jeune, pain grillé, amandes jeunes. Tout ceci est très disparate. Arrière-bouche sur du pain sec, chêne clair, savon de Marseille, jambon fumé … Là aussi on ne peut plus dissemblable. 2ème avec assez de lambic, un peu de vieille brune, un peu de vin rouge, un peu de fût. Attention l’assemblage … 3ème où le côté fermentation spontanée se développe. Arrière-bouche pleine mais aigre en dominante. La longueur donne des accents très forts de Rodenbach vintage (c’est un compliment, mais c’est très spécial …). L’équilibre est inexistant, l’aigreur domine trop. La levure est douce et un peu fleurie. L’alcool est bien progressif, très bien pour le genre. La finale est plus équilibrée (si l’on peut dire) malt/vin rouge du bordelais, mais plutôt en bordeaux supérieur ou cru bourgeois. CONCLUSION : bière assurément originale, et qui représente un beau travail de maturation, mais l’assemblage des saveurs est très particulier et un peu heurtant. L’aigreur du lambic cause à mon sens pal mal de préjudice à l’ensemble, mais certains aimeront ...

Alengrin (853) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
’Edelbier’ matured on médoc barrels. Off-white, delicately structured, fairly stable head, colour of ’old gold’, clear. Complex and rather powerful aroma of white wine, oak, grapefruit, cognac, bourbon, green hops, freshly grated ginger, mint, star aniseed, tea, pineapple, a touch of eau de cologne and champagne. Vivid fruitiness in the taste with citrus peel and quite strong, almost champagne-like carbonation, caramelly and bit honeyish malts covered under a complex of fruitiness and spiciness (aniseed again, ginger), finishing leafy and peppery hop bitterness as well as rather strong, whisky-like alcohol, a combination enough to completely dry mouth and throat, to the point where it becomes even a bit astringent. Had the finish been more benign, this would have been a truly great ale.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen 2nd Tuesday tasting. 10cl sample. The aroma has lacto, fruity wine, wood. Almost clear, yellow golden coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is quite sweet, has sourness, fruitiness. It has just a bit too much lacto for my taste. But well, good brew yes.

Wow, this is unique and exciting. It’s really a little confusing at first because I’ve never had anything like it. Quite funky nose, yeast and wood, a little stinky. Glowing orange with thin white head. A nice balance of dry Belgian funk and slightly sour wine barrel. Subtle but very present sourness, really nice. So much going on in this beer. Excellent.

Really lked this - the oak is more pronounced than other brett style beers and keeps the sourness in check. Seems to have more going on than a lot of guezes I have had, all while still be approachable and highly drinkable. A nice find by Shoulderbroken.

Lightly hazy gold beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth, light and dry. Very mild fine carbonation. Very light gueuezy sourness balanced by mild sweet generic fruits. Little florlaness. Light finish. Mellow and drinkable.

Bottle from De Hopduvel. Orange colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Very complex fruity aroma. Vinous nose, Tropical fruit with hints of lemon and sweet vinegar. Tart and sour with sweet fruity notes, light bitter aftertaste. Really nice balance. Very good!

bartlebier (1631) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
33cl bottle bb? courtesy of brewer @BBF 2014. Pours a bright peche melba with beautiful creamy whisps of foam. Immediate rich fruity fragracies ooze from the bottle upon opening: sweet and sour apricot, "confituurke" at a Belgian bakery, some sherry and wood. Taste is a piece of art in composition that well accomodates the added sugar and spice: after-dinner Peach liqueur on marinated biscuit dough, plus the delicate pungency of old hops, like a double, malt-heavier lambiek drenching a vanilla sponge cake. Very much a sour ale in this respect, with incredible presence of all tastes perfectly balanced at that, with both a rich and astringent aftertaste that leaves the mouth behind coated with a dessert. Big fan of this original brewery, its confident crossover styles and its labels.

TimE (3120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2014
slightly hazy golden amber color. Big sour, tart nose with oak, various spices and a bit of hoppiness. The mouth is very oaky buttery in the mouth that is a bit too much. I don’t think I like the oak, but slightly sour. Very strange taste, that I don’t necessary like. The finish is very oaky. i loved the nose on this, but after that, much less so.

caesar (5043) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Slight hazy yellow color, short to no head. Quite viscous. Aroma of loads of wine, grapes, slight barnyard and horseblanket, fruity notes like apricot. Like in between a wine and a gueuze. Slight sparkling. Bit sour in taste, bit sweet. I quite liked this one.
