18/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from Den Zytholoog / Bierloods (Adegem) @ home - BBE: 2010 (2014-371)

A rare find, that alas didnít survive time. Although Iím not sure it was very good when fresh, either. Anyway. Little cloudy reddish amber beer, small pinkish head, irregular, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: dusty, cardboard, bit sourish. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish start, black currants, bit dusty, some cardboard. Aftertaste: bit lemony, cardboard, sourish, dusty, citric touch. Actually, the acidity of the berries is probably what keeps this beer pretty drinkable, but it has aged too much and was probably to low in ABV to survive properly.

33cl bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan. It pours a peach color with a fluffy white head. Subtle fruit and brettanomyces aroma, yeasty. Definite horseblanket character in the flavor. I like this brewery

Why is it so hard to brew a decent non-lambiek fruit beer? Even Smisje kind of failed, since this beer is too sweet and a little metallic. A shame really.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
translucent tan. Nose has heavy brett rubber band, cherry, light earth. Heavy bandaid and rubber cement, light lemon and Brett. Finish is Brett citrus, bit of out of place smoke. Short smoke, bit imbalanced.

Strange vegetal and squash-y nose. Dirty dishwasher taste, some pinesol and a touch of rotten fruits.

jredmond (5336) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Draft at Ginger Man NYC with Linh. Pours a hazy orange body. Aroma is very light fruit? Mouthfeel is incredibly thin and smooth with no carbonation (canít remember if this was cask or not). DAMN YOU SLOEBERRIES!

Cloudy orange beer, sherbet nose. Very sharp note with unusual orange and tomoto tones. Good but a little bit too off the wall!

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2010
bottle, reddish-amber coloured with small and unstable white head. Smell: like cigarettes, pipes and some blueberrys. taste: very smoked, blueberry, monotone, very strange and heavy beer! Beer for real man who want to try some fruitbeers.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Poured into a flute glass, the lightly hazy body glows a dusky orange-gold color. A small but lasting head of smooth, snow white foam coats the entire glass with thick, solid sheets of lacing. The aroma is downright strange. Iím talking off-the-charts strange. First to hit are notes of dirt and minerals, combining to mimic the scent of well-circulated coins. Copper, nickel, and worn tin are then joined by unidentified, slightly minty berries, with a touch strawberry sweetness, and then some aquavit burn. Did I mention that this stuff smelled strange? Well, the flavor is just as weird, showing a smoky ash contingent, sweet-tart berries, sugary alcohol, and caustic metals. Ugh! The palate sports the consistency of tonic water, spritzy and fizzy, with a light body and some residual sugars. I canít really find a redeeming quality. This stuff is practically a crime against beer. Pretty horrid.

Another beer from De Regenboog, another brought back from my recent trip to Belgium. Iím not sure if itís a winter seasonal but the festive sled with the cartoon dog leads me to believe so. Itís a murky coppery-brown with no head to speak of. A tart berry aroma wafts from the glass, (this ale is supposedly brewed with some sort of berry) some brett funk smells too. Quite tart. Who am I kidding? Itís pretty sour, lots of acetic acid and barnyard funk. The berry/cherry sourness flits in and out too. Surprisingly, the finish is relatively clean, just a hint of vinegary sourness and then itís gone. The mouth is light but lots of flavor. Itís unique. Not sure I love it but it is different.
