First new beer after being out with an infection. 2010 vintage, $3.29 @ Binny’s. Brownish amber pour is the color as the bottle glass. Pours a big spongy head in my little goblet. Lightly tart smell, not overdone. Taste is a bit tart, but more likely it’s aged out and smoothed down. But a bright oaky palate takes its place. The middle of the pour increases some of the sourness, but there’s little fruit to it. I guess I’d call it sour yet dry. Alcohol is pretty light. So it’s a nice, sessionable sour beer. Nice for easing myself back into my rating routine.

Butelka, warka lidlowa do 23/02/17. Ladna piana, lekko kremowa, drobna, opadajaca niestety stosunkowo szybko, ladnie zostajaca na szkle. piwo przejrzyste, brazowo-czerwonawe. Aromat na pierwszym planie estry owocowe (wisnie) i stajenny. czuc, ze kwaskowate. W smaku analogicznie, kwasno (choc niespecjalnie) odswiezajaco, z wyczuwalna goryczka (niska) i wlasnie ta goryczka przywodzi na mysl jakies drewniano-beczkowe skojarzenia (w aromacie ich brak). srednie wysycenie, malo ciala, calosc bardzo odswiezajaca. dobre. z 6ciu sprobowanych petrusow dla mnie najciekawsze i jedno z dwoch ktore mi pasuja calosciowo

Butelka 0,33l. W aromacie owocowe, troche winne. W smaku przyjemnie kwasne czerwone owoce szybko ustepuja miejsca metalicznemu posmakowi. Za mocno to nie przeszkadza, ale ogolnie przecietnie.

ElDesmadre (1942) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Red wine, redcurrant, some cherries. Not really noticeable oak. Light tartness, boosting the refreshing qualities of this beer. It lacks flavour depth and complexity but it’s a very nice, very fruity thirst-quencher. Light metallic but that did not bother me much. Very nice.

0.33 cl bottle, bb 4.06.2016. Ruby coloured, a bit hazy beer with beige head, good head retention. Slight woody aroma, and some malts notes. Taste is dominated by malts, some hints of fruits. Not really sour. This is the first Flanders Brown Ale I am trying, and it is a bit disappointing.

Przeciętny do potęgi, ale dający się wypić sour. Można wypić, ale w pamięć na trwałe się nie wryje.

Old rating. Brown ruby colored. Caramel, cherry, oak, vinegar. Decently well balanced, but not particularly smooth with the sourness.

matbli (85) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle 330ml, pours ruby with creamy colored head that reduces fast to a light lacing. Aroma of cherries, oak wood, cramel, barnyard, green apples, raisins and vinegar. In taste medium and very fruity sourness, nicely balanced with medium sweetness and a minimal touch of bitterness in the finish. Very light for the belgian style. Carbonation could be slightly lower, but in general very good drinkable.

PawelD (292) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Butelka. W aromacie cocacola, lekkie nuty octowe, stajnia. Kolor bardzo ciemny bursztyn, klarowny, kożuszek białej drobnej piany, wysycenie wysokie. W smaku słodko kwaśne, pełne, smak słodki na myśl przychodzą wiśnie, a kwaśny - agrest. Bardzo gładkie, mega pijalne, minimalna goryczka chmielowa na finiszu. Udane.
