Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass dark brown, huge head. Starts malty, quite roasty, some earthy-malty notes. Bitter background. Finish a bit unbalanced, metallically, a bit soapy. Okay.

freretoc (904) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 17, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur brune grosse mousse beige et effervescence moyenne, au nez ça pique avec une odeur importante sur la terre et l’oignon ( c’est mal parti) en bouche ça sent l’acidité de l’amande (infecté ?) et le côté fort de la terre mouillée, une horreur, à goûter pas infecté car le côté caramel du fin de bouche fait imaginer un truc un peu meilleur.

Calisky (1190) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 4, 2014
couleur noire, forte mousse beige. Nez malté, fruits secs, noisette et café torréfié. Cout de café crème leger, fruits sec, malt de pain, Corps bien cremeux avec fin de fruits noirs. Vraiment pas mal!

Martinus (3176) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
Brown colour, white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, soy sauce and apple. Light sour flavour, caramel and roasted malts. Very fizzy. Finish caramel. Not my favourite, but still it is nice to see craft beer emerging in the Alsace.
(From 33cL bottle @ RBBWG III, Tim’s place. Thanks for sharing, Rian!)

18/I/14 - 33cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: n/a (2014-67) Thanks to Thirstybird for sharing the bottle!

Clear brown beer, creamy beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: bad, rotten fruits, some caramel, bit sugary, liquorice but overall a very unpleasant bad smell. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: grains, unpleasant bitterness, some liquorice, overripe fruits, caramel, some mocha, bitter touch (from the hops?). Aftertaste: little bitter, caramel. Oh boy... This makes us realise why we usually try to seek out the good stuff. :-)

@RBBWG2014. Thanks Sebletitje. Hazy dark brown. Aroma of caramel. Some sourness (infection?) Metallic taste. Unbalanced and thin body.

sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
33cl bouteille @ RBBWG III, thanks ThirstyBird. Ambrée, col fin beuge. Arôme est légèrement malté, caramel, avec ce bouquet pomme phénolique montrant un signe de maîtrise bancale. Palais offre en premier une bizarre note de picotement qui rappelle un sous-bois, des feuilles en décomposition accompagné par un léger citronné. Touche ici aussi ce côté pomme-pelure - phénoles. Au fini est complété par un malt carapils, pâle avec une petite note biscuitée. Pas mauvaise, assez unique mais mal exécutée et on se perd à deviner dans quelle direction le brasseur a voulu aller avec cette bière.

Pours a cloudy orangish brown with tan head. The smell is wet leaves, fruit, green pepper, yeast. The taste is vegetal, wet leaves, fruit... Something seems a bit off. Medium body with average carbonation.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to ThirstyBird. GUSHER. Reddish dark brown, little tanned head. Nose is not good, fermenting overripe fruits, infection funk, fizzy, sourish with herbs. Taste is even worse than taste, this tastes like a fermenting forest, rotting plants, moss, leaves, herbal, plants, cleaning agents,… Mouthfeel is that of a spoiled beer. Rank honestly overall.
