What better way to celebrate todays Dem victory than drinking a fantastic ’Merkin beer! Yes I know its Danish but I needed an excuse to drink this beer as it is frightfully $$$ in NZ. The brett is not as pronounced in this beer as the Rayon V, but in this case the subtlety adds to the beers flavour profile.

A us hopped belgian strong ale with a kick of brett that gives a delicate but nice touch

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 27, 2015
Not sour at all. Yeasty funk at best. Hay, red ale like, English breakfast tea. Quite bitter, amber malts, heavy carbonation. More of an Amber Ale with a slight doughy yeasty twist. Like it though, could be an autumn beer or for rainy summer day like today. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Vestergaard (958) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a nice, clear amber with a bit, off white head. Aroma has lots of grainy, malty sweetness, caramelized sugar, some hops and a hint of funk. A bit of honey melon as well. Taste is sweet up front, but quickly gets more funky dry and hoppy bitter. Very dry end actually. I guess some aging would suit this well! Average low carb and medium full body.
