JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2011
Very good, dense, faintly amberish tinted head over well-carbonated foxy amber bere, cloudy and riddled with volcanicaly erupting, upwelling utterly ugly UFOs. Wave of wild fruit in the nose - and a touch of Brett?!? Rhubarb, bit of caramelmalts, but not suggesting sweetness. Again wild fruit and agin an impression of Bretts - halfway between the lambic and the floormop variety. Ends on some faint caramel, and some vague fruity esters. Spices are there, but not overwhelming. Warming up, some strange aromatics, reminding me of aftershave, whilst the Brett impression fades away. Well carbonated, seriously alleviating the slickness & body. And now for the $ 10,000.- question - where are the cherries? Or put differently: how much were actually added? Maybe as many as the masking spices? And (UUUU) where the hell do they get that gruesome looking yeast?

Benzai (8145) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle shared @ ZZT 8. Murky dark orange color, full sized a bit fizzy beige head. Smell malts, quite fruity, lightly yeasty. Taste lightly malts, nicely fruity, slightly orangepeel, lightly dry. Fizzy carbonation, average to medium body. A bit less carbonation would make this beer much better imo.
