Ruikt idd naar balsamico azijn. Heel vreemd. Heel zuur en beetje azijn nasmaak. Speciaal!

30/XI/14 - 33cl bottle from the brewery @ home - BB: IX/2015 (2014-1454)

Clear deep ruby red to purple brown beer, big creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: Rodenbach smell! Sourish, some balsamic, bit caramelized, lemony, earthy. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour lemony start, lots of oxidation, like a very old sourish Liefmans Goudenband, caramel, vinegar. Aftertaste: spicy touch, very oxidized, orange peel, dusty, old, very sour.

A disappointing beer from this usually brilliant brewery. Tastes more or less like the average sour Belgian brown beer. Doesn’t remind me of balsamic vinegar.

Christian (11548) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2014
At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. hazy copper with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with diacetyl, and a touch of vinegar. Sweet and tart caramel and diacetyl flavour with vinegar notes

tricksta_p (1706) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Aroma of balsamico vinegar, red fruit, oak, ’appelstroop’. Flavour is vinegar sourness, but also some brown sugary sweetness. An interesting and satisfactory experiment.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul. Pours lightly unclear brown with a weak, white foam head. Definitely some hefty vinegar in the aroma, some leathery fruits, berries. Light sweet flavor with stinging vinegar, light aged fruits, toffee, bread. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. More throat-burning vinegar to finish - it wakes you up - with slight oxidation notes, old fruits and toffee. Not bad.

Scopey (8371) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is tangy dark fruits, wood, big balsamic vinegar, rubber, cola, acetic and lactic notes. The taste is tangy, balsamic vinegar, acid burn, cola, dark fruits, wood, earth and faint caramel with a dry, somewhat acidic finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not as bad as I thought. Still doubt I would drink much of it.

ST247 (448) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige foam. Aroma is like aceto balsamico but also with some cherry, sweet and sour. Taste is a mix of aceto balsamico, cherry, alcohol and chocolate. Oily texture, medium body and good carbonation. Finish is a little bit sour and some other taste I can’t name but don’t really like. Interesting combination.

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel. Brune ambrée, col beige. Arôme offre le caractère typique de balsamique, ici le côté boisé est bien rendu et tout amateur de ce vinaigre y retrouvera le caractère. Note de fruits trip mûr notamment de prune et cerise. Palais et au premier abord me rappelle une oude bruin avec ce côté balsamique nettement plus présent. En retrait un léger boisé, et ce côté sucre roux caramélisé, malt crystal accompagné de qcq notes de fruité noir. Fini est épais accompagné d’un boisé modéré. Je note encore ce léger côté fruité fermenté noir en sucre résiduel. Bière qui reflète bien l’idée du vinaigre balsamique mais qui aurait été mieux dans un calibre de 18cl voire 25cl.
