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.

23/VI/14 - 75cl bottle @ home - BB: 22/VI/16 (2014-658) Thanks to Hilaire for the bottle!

Little cloudy red amber beer, big irregular unstable, head, dissipating quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, barley wine character, strawberry, bit spicy, alcohol, pretty strong and intense. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter hops, alcohol, bit sourish, fruity notes, grassy, bit of chocolate malts. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, grassy, fruity notes, some strawberries, bit oxidized, some honey, bitter ending.

Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna, choć na dnie widoczny był wyraźny osad. Piana w kolorze ecru, dość obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. [5/5] Aromat: słodowy (karmel), na początku trochę kwaśny (w stylu lambica), niestety z czasem ta dzikość zanika. Do tego akcenty cytrusowe amerykańskich chmieli i niewielka nuta alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy, pełny, nieco słodki, ale z kwaskową kontrą. Wyraźna nuta alkoholowa oraz wyczuwalna goryczka (w okolicach średniej) niestety trochę "zielona", łodygowa, nie do końca przyjemna. Mikkeller oferuje nam teraz belgijskie ale z dodatkiem dzikich drożdży i chmieli amerykańskich. Połączenie całkiem fajne i dość udane. Niestety muszę przyznać, że butelka spędziła w mojej szafie blisko 9 miesięcy, co aromatom chmielowym nie wyszło zapewne na zdrowie. Podejrzewam, że otwarte wcześniej smakowałoby (a zwłaszcza pachniało) jeszcze lepiej. Nie zawsze mam jednak z kim zdegustować większą butelkę...

75cl bottle at Tim’s place. Thx for sharing today’s beers! APPEARANCE: clear dark blond beer, small unstable off white head. NOSE: very sweet, barley wine nose actually. Aged hops. TASTE: caramel, sweet, barley wine like beer, not like orval at all. Nice beer.
