COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"R. Woodhouse" ist die stärkere Version des in der Braustelle bekannten Saisonbieres "Rosemarie", welches mit Rosmarin gebraut wird. "R. Woodhouse" wird zusätzlich mit Honig und Rauchmalz gebraut. Der Name "R. Woodhouse vs. M. Castevet" ist eine weitere Anspielung an den Horrorfilm "Rosemaries Baby" von Roman Polanski. Diese spezielle Version wurde auf selbst angesetzten Vanilla Oak Chips gereift, die zuvor auf einem Mirabellenbrand gelagert wurden.

MrHangover (3857) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours a murky, darker orange beer without any head on top. Aroma of vinegar, strong cinnamon, a bit smokey. Flavor is very, very tart, stringent and tangy. Loads of vinegar and herbal notes in there again. This was a really old bottle, best before somewhere in 2012, so it must not have aged all that well. Soft carbonation, biting mouthfeel. Not all that good, but certainly the worst ever.

oh6gdx (24856) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Botled (backlog). Deep amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruty, spicy, some rosemary and mild wooden sourness to it. Flavour is some toasted and sweetish maltiness, rosemary, mild spices as well as some wooden sourness to it. The wooden sourness was the kind of infection going on, rather than something intended.

skortila (5161) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen 2nd Tuesday tasting. 10cl sample. bbd mar 2012. The aroma has sweetish honey, maple, pine, rosemarry. Clear, brown coloured beer with no head. The taste is sourish, sweet, very spicy, has caramel, some porto. Would be better without the sourness.

caesar (6473) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, BB March 2012, small sample. Hazy brownish color, short head. Aroma of rosemary, some vinous note, bit port, caramel, toffee, hint of raisin. Sour taste, bit sweet. Besides the spices in the aroma, underneath is some wonderful aged barley-wine-like beer. However in taste, the sourness ruins it. Unbalanced and messy.

Benzai (12760) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Hazy red - brownish color, virtually no head. Aroma is toothpaste and a horrible mix of herbs and spices. Taste is fortunately a bit better due to lightly sourish influences. The herbs and spices are way less prominent so it’s quite drinkable imo, as long as you don’t smell it.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. BBE 03-2012. Aroma of menthol, licorice, herbs, cough syrup, rosemary and loads of spices. Flavor is quite spicy, sour, licorice and herbs. Loads of herbs. Horrible.

KnutAlbert (6651) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Strong spiciness, sourness, vinegar. I’m not convinced that the rosemary was such a good idea.

Plaas (92) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2012
Sour ale, but no vinegar - the sourness was rather subtle. Spicy aroma, lots of rosemary, pine, cinnamom. Malty, bread. Very complex, deep taste. I really enjoyed this.
