Garrold (3778) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle. Missus bought this about 2 years ago, probably from Beermoth. Amber colour. Film and ring of lasting, off white head. Nose is not what I expected. This is like a lightly bretted barley wine? Apple juice. Apple brandy. Fruity, toasted teacake malts. Ripe pear. Soft brett. Hint of almond. Notes of wet leather on the back end. Smells fantastic. Taste is funky, fruity, and slightly tart. Some dryness. Mouthfeel is full, with a little oiliness. Well hidden alcohol. Finishes tart, fruity bitter. Like a geared up version of Orval’s bigger, slightly less refined, brother. Excellent.

Alengrin (4159) - BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2016
"Belgian wild" ale, at Billie’s Bierkafetaria. Medium thick, off-white, stable, papery lacing head over a warm, lightly hazy orangey copper coloured beer. Lovely, vinous and elegant bouquet of sweet sherry, cranberry, marmelade, rosé wine, pink grapefruit peel, yoghurt, mango, sugar glaze, stale sweat, green olive. Sweet candied orange in the mouth, overripe strawberry, gooseberry sourishness but less ’deep’ and tenacious than expected though a certain berry tartness remains till the very end; softish carbo, very soft and slick body, honeyish malt sweetness underneath, bit nutty, dryish finish of the initial berry tartness but the fruity and malty, at some points even refinedly sugar sweetness prevails, with very low hop profile; bit vinous as well due to the (unexpectedly) high ABV. I assume this becomes more and more interesting as it grows older and the Brett, which I assume is present here, gets the time to eat the residual sugars - definitely one for cellaring, I’d argue.

Desverger (6969) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016

Kosmokrator (803) - ITALY - NOV 26, 2015
Ambrata, acidula, pungente. Sentori di lievito, batteri, frutta matura, limone, zucchero a velo; acidula, di corpo medio-lieve, carbonata, beverina. Un’esplosione di energia, una birra indomabile!

Lagerboy (1834) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
330 ml bottle, best before: 28/03/19. Murky brown-ish orange, off-white foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of tart funky yeast, spice and rich malt. Taste is lightly tart, sweet malty caramel, spicy yeasty funk, some alcohol. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. A warming quencher. NFL (Not for Lagerboys)

Tognetta (657) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 14, 2015
Cobre avermelhada, espuma laranjada, de média formação e boa persistência. Aroma cítrico ácido, uvas verdes, maltada, complexa. Paladar segue bem o aroma, evidenciando mais o dulçor de média intensidade, álcool perceptível mas bem distribuído. Corpo mediano, assim como a carbonatação apesar do teor alcoólico. Aftertaste novamente lembra uvas, azedume muito bem disperso, malte sempre presente. Uma das melhores que já provei do estilo.
