COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WARNING: You cannot add a rating of Earthnun if you or someone else, including Struise staff, blended two bottles or two tap pours of Pannepot Reserva and Earthmonk. This is the equivalent of rating a Black & Tan and will be deleted. Only those having a blended and kegged version of this beer may review it, which is currently only those who tried the beer at ZBF 2007.

The Aardnon is a blend of 30% Aardmonnik and 70% Pannepot Reserva (oak aged).

madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 Draught. Dark brown red coloured. Dense light brown head. Aroma is great. Berries, subtle sourness, spice, grape, some earthnotes and a countering sweetness gives a aroma in great balance. Flavour as well i harmonious and balanced. Dense sour berries, flowers, light sour grape, spice and some light vinegarnotes. Very complex. Has a fantastic mouthfeel. Is dry and grapish in the end with some berrysweetness. Yet another masterpiece from the fantastic Struise brewers. Cheers to Urbain, Carlo and all the others.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 17, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 ZBF2007: Saurer Kirschgeruch. Säuerlicher Antrunk, leicht alkoholischer Mittelteil. Das Bier schwankt immer wieder zwischen eiem säuerlichen und einem eher süßlichen Kirscharoma. So auch im kirschig-malzigen Nachgeschmack, in dem der Hopfen kratzig erscheint.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2007
Dull chestnut colour; good beige head. Sour, lactic and even acetic acid aromas, severe. Very dry, extremely woody with a perfect lactic/acetic balance. Complex without showing. Very dry, agreable, certain slickness. Great beer, but oh, so severe!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 A Mes rate: Draught at ZBF. Totally love Aardmonnik, totally love Pannepot. Of course they go together, no brainer really. Like a tarty Pannepot or a less sour Aardmonnik. Sweet and sour caramel nose. Red grapes (red wine) a la Aarmonnik. Great dark brown colour with a tan head. Simply incredible in the mouth dancing over the palate jumping from sour Aardmonnik character to the candy sugared roastyness of Pannepot. Earthy and sugary, balsamic (very) and creamy. Its a tastebud assault. Loooong finish goes on for a long time. Superb. Clearly one of the best of the festival.

SHIG (3545) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 4, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Draught: Poured a dark hazy brown with light brown thick fast acting head. The aroma was fruit and acidic. Spicy earthy flavor that finshed dry acidy.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2007
The Earth Nun has arrived. Dark brown, thick head. Aroma of sour apples and other sour fruits. Lively, slighty acidic mouthfeel, tart-sour fruit flavor, maybe cherries. Lacks the creaminess and maltiness of the Reserva, but still dry and lovely.

henrikb (1257) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 24, 2007
Brown reddish body, huge beige head, thick lacing; Huge great nose, with lots of complexity, tons of different elements from fresh sour fruits to warmer malty licorice; Near perfect carbonation in a body that is a very little soft, bitter, sour and sweet; Loooong finish where the sourness grows and the aromas explode. Very, very great beer!

A splendid beer. I could taste almost every beer on draft they ad at the beerfestival. Very nice brewerie. Only a problem with the Kloeke Blond. Splendid beers with very nice and complex taste. A lust for every beer taster
