Bamsen78 (5003) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Draught @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Pours hazy ruby with small pinkish head. Clear vinous aroma with notes of fruit and yeast. Dry onset, quickly giving way to a vinous body with touches of fruit and hops. Estery hints in the otherwise very vinous aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence, especially towards the finish. Nice beer.

Poured into a large goblet last night at Bittercreek’s 2014 Funkfest... A hazy reddish/brown brew produces decent head and spotty lacing. Nose is weird... candy like sweetness punctuated by a musty/lightly funky bretty character.. Flavor has a big oaky essence that is punctuated by a tannic element... this one is for the geeks, I am not sure what to make of it... not really anything that I commonly associate strictly with grapes, but there is an overall round very background sweetness that I guess is grape. Weird ... very weird ... tasty, but certainly is not going to be everybody’s favorite.
