3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the four ’yeast beers’, again a series of "Limited Beer Collection" for Delhaize, 8000 bottles of 75 cl each. This one is refermented with Brettanomyces and could be regarded as a forerunner to the Brett series they had made this year. Stable, off-white, sticky head, pure golden blond colour with equal haze. Pretty complex nose of banana, vanilla, leather, sherry, field flowers, hay, limoncello, musterd seed, sour cream, dried mushrooms. Dry fruity taste, some apple and apricot, minerally, cookie- and toast-like, a tad honeyish, touches of leather and hay because of the Brett but in a (too) subtle way, finish assertively hop bitter, long and grapefruity, along with some warm but not disturbing alcohol. I had expected something more out of the ordinary I suppose, but still enjoyed it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very yeasty, uninteresting and light Bretty. Flavor is boring, very uninteresting, even worse than the rest of this series. Best steer clear of these beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s a bit too delicate when it comes to yeast game. It has the same caramel character then the other beers from this series only less foam. The beer is strongly carbonated and reminds more of a Saison. There is almost no acidity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde dorée claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc crémeux. Principalement maltée carapils, légèrement fruitée avec une petite acidité, bonne petite amertume, les brett apportent un petit quelque chose en plus par rapport aux trois autres...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Prøve hos Borup, virker frisk i duften, men også lidt sur, smagen er frisk med sur bismag og let bitterhed i eftersmagen, der er lang eftersmag, dejlig konsistens.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized creamy head with a hazy orange body.
Aromas of glue, straw, light brett, light fruit, some flowers and light horse and stone tints.
Flavours of bitters, green herbs, some yeast/brett, light fruity, herbs, some peach, light wood and malts.
Aftertaste is a mix of some dey bitters, fruity brett and some flowers.
Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery light dry texture.
Aroma starts bad (glue, etc.) but after a while more fruit, flowers and some brett comes through. Flavour is pretty strong bitter. Not bad, but expected more of this!
