caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Bottled from Bier Genot, BB Oct 2017, large sample, served in a snifter. Pours a dark brown colored beer with a meduim almost creamy brown head leaving thick creamy lacing. Aroma of quites some coffee (although there seems to be no coffee in), some roast, bit licorice, slight spicy, some caramel, biscuit. Quite bitter in taste, some from the hops, but mainly from the malts, coffee again, hint of cookie sweetness. Slight creamy texture. Finishes with a bit of the candy sweetness that can be found in belgian styled beers. Slight dry palate, together with grassy bitterness. After a couple of their mediocre brews, I wasnt expecting a lot from this White Pony, but this one is truly wonderful. Horrible labels btw.

[33 cl. bottle][15 cl. sample][Split with Kogymo][White Pony Day @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske] Very young sample +/- 1 week old, I was warned. I am always a bit confused when a brewery brings a beer to a festival and warns me about it prior to drinking, it is young, over carbonated etc. I understand that they are covering their backs but it still seems a bit odd to me, if you are not sure of a beer just don’t serve it to me. I have never been handed food in a restaurant accompanied by a warning like, I am not sure if the bread was long enough in the oven. It seems to me if it tastes great, I won’t start nitpicking about the colour etc. Anyway pours oily black with unsurprisingly little in the way of head. Smells of cacao, chocolate syrup, hazelnuts, it is quite grainy and lacking a definite characteristic or subtlety. Tastes of roasted malts, it is a bit watery, sweetish, oily with hazelnuts, sweetish, syrup, very simple and a bit watery and week, lacking many characteristics maybe indeed simply to young. I was told that this is their best beer & that it was bound to impress.
