Benzai (8246) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Joes. Dark red brown color, no head at all. Aroma of wood and a touch of sourness. Taste some sourness that’s actually quite overwhelming. Why would you bottle this? It’s more like red fruits and red wine instead of whisky. Basically it just sucks.

(bottle) pours a murky brown colour with a quickly-diminishing off-white head. aroma of dark fruit, caramel, candis sugar, dried fruit, honey, strawberries and grain. flavour is mostly cramel, bread dough and grapes, sweet and sour, alcohol is well-hidden, with a slightly tart fruity finish. medium to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

bartlebier (1748) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
33cl bottle shared by 77ships @kraddel’s Post TdG 2013 tasting. - Slightly unblanced, thin-bodied balsamico oud bruin with a whiff of vanilla whisky cask aroma and a decent quality malt base. Hides it proper ABV well but lacks profile and conviction.

22/IV/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB:XII/2016 (2013-363) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy deep red orange beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, caramel, nutty, lots of alcohol, sugary, smells very oxidized. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sour, red wine, more sourish, unpleasant bitterness that collides with the sour taste, cranberries and bitter grape peels. Aftertaste: sourish, lemony, dry, more lemony, red grape peel, bitter ending. Nope, this can’t be right...

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
33cl bottle courtesy of 77ships @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Fresh. Trouble ambrée, col moyen blanc cassé. Arôme donne de suite ces notes des 11%, avec un bouquet belge typique. Palais est ici aussi bien alcoolisé suivi de qcq notes de cask boisé pour un whisky très léger. Pétillant moyen mais qui termine assez plat. Malté avec ce profil fruité fermenté. Au final la bière est un peu partout, et on se perd à savoir le but original de la bière.

Travlr (11932) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of 77ships, thanks! Cloudy brown color, small white edge head. Aroma of vanilla, prunes, caramel. Taste is sweet candied and brandied plum, a bit boozy. Interesting.

77ships (3801) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
33 cl. bottle procured @ Willems. Shared. Murky, lightly brown amber with almost no head. Sweet moldy nose, light brown fruits, light wood, light odd rotting fruits, hint cellar and spices,… Taste is moldy barrel, light cellar, light port, overripe fruits, rotting wood, old fermenting prunes, light bitterness spices, light rotting berries, rotting mold, cellar,.. Hint fizzy,… Actually way better than expect from these guys considering the terrible amount of beers before.

Bottle. Hazy deep amber beer, little pale tan head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Minerally fine carbonation. Interesting beer! There is sour Flemish red type thing going on at the same time as sweet vanilla wood and whisky! The Flemish character is lightly dominant but the two sides are well integrated. Semi dry finish with tangy plummy fruits. Hides the abv well.
