A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.
Probably not quite worthy of our 7k but there we go. Dark brown with a thin off White head. Fruity brown beer in a very Belgian style. Spritely yeasty notes and a good rounded malty finish. Nice enough.

Dfonorow (1867) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Pour is darker brown with a finger-wide light tan head that fades very quickly. Belgian yeast and peppercorn break through the aroma with a strong backing of roasted malts. Flavor is more on the smoked side with hints of chocolate, molasses, and burnt wood. Some Belgian spice in the finish. Interesting beer.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle, 6%. Very slow gusher. Light fruity nose, slightly roasted. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Quite stable light brown head. The flavour starts off slightly roasted, turns a little yeasty. Finishes with a sort of citric note.

Slipstream (2319) - USA - JUL 24, 2011
I picked the right glass for this foamy pour - a widemouth Belgian goblet. Slightly irritating aroma of yeast and lemon peel - but it tastes very good. Fairly sweet and complex flavor - molasses, dates, apricot, a bit of citrus, and a lightly sharp finish. The label says it is a Belgian ale, but here it is described as a rye saison. Either way, it is good stuff.
