Oh, the decadence. It’s been a LONG time since I uncapped an expensive bottle of beer in the small hours of the morning and sat writing about it on the internet. Here goes....Pours a burnished, nectared brass with a low white foam. Nose the anticipated plethora of guava, blackcurrant and galangal hop loveliness without a sniff of sour or whiskey to distract; then something perfumed, botanical, gooseberry-inflected and slightly shit-spattered from the pig pens/hop fields of Flanders. Taste similarly hop-dominated with Refreshers-like sherbet, Rubicon, Turkish Delight, neat orange cordial and peach flan Cali hops vying for prominence. Zero whiskey.That Refreshers, violet-like note is as far as the sour goes. Lean supporting chaff of malt. Drinks about 5%. Rather magnificent. I could get right into this beer rating game.

5/VII/14 - 33cl bottle @ RBBSG III (Gent) - BB: 31/X/14 (2014-732) Thanks to JefVerstraete for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy pale beige to light amber beer, aery white head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: bit sugary, funky, brett notes, lemony, cilantro, some chlorine. Very weird stuff, but not per se bad. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very lemony, bit sugary, sourish, weird, lemon peel, did I mention weird already? Aftertaste: bit sugary, lemony, sourish. Oh, and weird, very very weird! :p

330ml bottle, cheers to Stuu666 for sourcing. Pours hazy lemon yellow, thin white head. Like the base beer, it’s very lemony, with the expected whisky note. Challenging, but interesting.

stouby (3716) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma medium citrusy, brett, bourbon, light malty. Flavor light sweet (Bourbon, barrel, caramel), citrusy, brett/sour, long hoppy bitterness, dry, some alcohol felt. Light to medium body, soft carbonated. I really don’t know what to mean about this strange brew.
