Benzai (14122) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - JAN 31, 2013
75 cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. (Note: label says 9.5% ABV, so is this a new entry? Admins: please correct and move my rating if I’m wrong) Hazy orange color with some yeast residu floating in it. Medium sized off-white head that lasts for a while. Smell some malts, lightly herbs or spices, some fruitpeel-bitter. Taste malts, fruitpeel, some herbs or spices, a bit herbal bitter. Medium body, fizzy carbonation that makes me burp. Ok beer.

Bière blonde épicée, refermentée, basée sur la tradition d’Herentals. Niveau abv de 7 %. Couleur jaune abricoté, au voile de levure conséquent (forte saturation co2 à l’ouverture). Bulles fines partout dans le verre, à montée lente. Mousse blanc cassé ; qui reste un nappage crémeux à 2 mm. Arômes de malt clair, vin blanc sec, camomille, cardamone, romarin, sauge. 1ère bouche soyeuse, très fleurie et épicée. Arrière-bouche dense et agréable, à dominante fleurie. 2ème bouche agréable, mais très déséquilibrée sur les herbes. Arrière-bouche assez dense, et de belle longueur. 3ème à la texture très douce, sur la même ligne gustative. La longueur intègre un peu mieux l’ensemble. Jambes fines, très marquées. Levure fine, mais assez ordinaire. Alcool correct, mais il laisse faire plus qu’il ne dirige. Finale identique au reste, sans envol. CONCLUSION : bière spéciale assurément, qui devrait être classée dans les spice/herb/vegetable, tant ceux-ci sont prédominants !! Pour amateur de petites fleurs ...

Bottled@Tuulensuu, Tampere. Yellowish golden colour with a big white head, that leaves lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some plastic, mild meaty and smoked notes along with some citrus as well as grainy notes. Flavour is spicy, caramelly, mild rubbery notes as well as some grains, meat and strange tart/acidic sourness to it. Very strange brew, which I can’t figure out if it’s just bad, or actually has an infection going on.

330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Lemonadey artichoke dip aroma - very spicy. Taste has nettles. Sourish aspects are a bit off-putting. Some savoury spicy aspects. Clove, lime, sharp lime. Better with some yeast, but still not good.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20130810) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, herbalness and Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spices, malts, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, fruity and bitter. A very spicy brew. That was a bit off-putting but still the beer was somewhat drinkable.
