UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 A Mes & Sim rate (hand delivered by Alex, Mes & Reakt to 4:20): Aroma of rich apple sauce: sweet but with a serious sourness hiding underneath. Slight notes of iron and leather too. Superb perfectly balanced fruit very similar to the Aardnon but just that little bit more rounded. It could be cranberry. But it also could be plum. I seriously want this aroma in a fruit salad. Looks fantastico - murky red/brown that’s both opaque and translucent. Head speaks volumes with its cosmic cling. Tart, cherry, cranberry & raspberry flavour. It hits your palate with a vengaence, but sweetens it at the same time. Aggresively sherbert. Delicately sugar. Acidic as hell yet tempered almost effortlessly by the soft and rounded character of the Grand Reserva. I could drink this all day - though I know that I shouldn’t. A certain beer girl has learned her lesson with a certain Grand Reserva. One of the best of an amazing repertoire from Urban.

Dark mahogany pour with a nice white head. Lots of dark fruits- plum, date, fig, and huge cherry, candi sugar, and barrel vinousness. A bit of chocolate and acetic acid follow. The flavor holds massive Pannepot notes with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Epic and tasty! Uber thick and rich palate with a sweet raisin oriented finish. Yummmmm.

Cola colored pour with a bubbly film of a head. Aroma holds a lot more wood than Earthnun, with further notes of date, fig, bourbon vanilla, and lighter presence of tart cherry from the Earthmonk. Flavor is wondrous; very much like the Pannepot but the little touch of tartness from the Earthmonk adds a great note of complexity. Great dark fruit presence with a sweet but not burdening finish. Palate is low carbonation and quite drinkable. Very nice.

Dark brown pour with a thin offwhite head. Aroma dark fruit, yeast, very light sourness, sweet brown sugar. Flavor is intense fruity yeast, dark pit fruit with light sour cherry notes and sweet finish. Tasty

Draft. An unclear brown beer with a dense beige head. The aroma has notes of wood, brettanomyces, and fruits. The flavor is acidic with notes of brettanomyces, wood, malt, and caramel, leading to a tart finish.

RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Blend of Pannepot 2005 Reserva and Earthmonk
Dark color, almost black, with a beautiful creamy head. Very strange aroma, with cream, tomatoes, sour and fermented fruits. Good body strength; sweet caramel flavor, with light fruits, wood, sourness, acetone. In the final, it’s a bit drier, and some darker malts manage to appear; creamy. A very complex beer, but difficult too.

On tap. RBESG Rome 2010. Pours a cloudy opaque brown with a dense and creamy beige head. Tart aroma, some Balsamico. Medium body, dry yet sweet’n’tart with dried fruit and notes of wood. Fairly tart finish with lots of acetone. An interesting but not very classic Flemish Red. 030610
