Alengrin (4420) - BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2016
American ’oud bruin’ with blackberry and dates, bottle at BeerTemple, generously shared by Ilse from Craft & Draft, cheers! Lightly lacing, moussy, egg-white head, mahogany to chestnut brown robe. Rich and seductive aroma of indeed blackberry and candied date, embedded in hints of blue plum, toffee, rum-soaked raisins, medium dry sherry, hazelnut oil, some cocoa. Sourish and sweetish onset, raisin and fig impressions next to recognizable date and blackberry hints, medium carbo, smooth and full caramelly and nutty malt body providing underlying sweetness and rotundity against an unripe stonefruit tartness softly drying the mouth, nice tart and juicy finish with persisting dried fruit flavors. Ilse clearly knew which one to pick to share with us: this is a truly brilliant example of the style, as it combines gentle but adequate sourness with a well-rounded, opulent malt sweet underground, a combination typical for some of the greatest Belgian examples of the style as well. A real gem.

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]
hazy red-chestnut, thick large bubbled cream head lasts. Heavy berry and red wine, brown sugar oude bruin element. Fizzy black cherry front palate, lightly waxy as sweet, watery mid before stinging sugar and berry dark/sweetness ends the beer. Acid and sugar controlled, fruit expressive. One of the better Wicked Weed sours.

Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk dregs run. Appearance - cloudy dark brown. Nose - wood and sour toffee. Taste - tangy herby red fruit or olives. Salt. Wood lurking. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - acidic dry start. Some fruit in the middle and then it goes back to the bitter olive.
