Alengrin (3549) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Made for a Ghent sports club after a recipe developed by the guy who invented the Braven Apostel beers. Creamy, light beige, moussy head, brownish bronze colour. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, liqueur, plum, sour cream, iron and - alas - some DMS (cabbage). Yeasty, dry fruity taste with sourish wheat, bit metallic too, dry and lightly roasted finish, bitterish and not well-balanced - and retronasally there’s the DMS again. What a weird beer to celebrate an anniversary with... Apparently conceived as a dark wheat beer, so perhaps it should be considered classifying this as a Dunkelweizen (of some sort)?

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2012
33cl bottle from Geers, BB 17/06/2013. Cuivrée, col fin beige. Arôme est léger malté caramel, fruité noir sur note d’épices. Presque herbes médicinales, possible anise? Palais est malté pâle, léger en épices, levure, penchant presque sur une bière de table. Fruité léger noirs avec une pointe minime d’aigreur herbacée et un rappel à un cola et la douceur d’un malta.

6/V/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 17/VI/13 (2012-470)

Clear dark red brown beer, nice big creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, cookies, pretty hoppy, herbal notes, mocha, dark chocolate, red fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: little sour start, red berries, caramel, quite a lot of mocha, dried fruits. Aftertaste: mocha, little sour, spiced, milk chocolate, some caramel. Could it be the wheat malt that provides this sourness? It’s not too bad, especially given the pretty low ABV!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2009
(Bottled, BBE 23.4.2009) Hazy dark reddish brown with a small, firm and beige head. Aroma of slightly sour wheat, licorice, and mild roastiness. Roasted maltiness and licorice in the flavor, with dried fruit and hints of wheaty sourness. Almost medium body, medium and soft carbonation. This is actually pretty good, even when past its BBE. Beats all but the very best German Dunkelweizens. Maybe slightly thin, but quite nice.
