Plovmand (7849) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a creamy beige head. Loads of berries in aroma. Blackberries and unripe strawberry. Wood and cobwebs. Tart fruity flavor with tart berry notes. Some sweetness in the finish that could be from the dates. Else it’s mostly dominated by tart black berries. A bit unrefined but tasty still.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle, from b3shine-- thanks Beau!-- shared at game night. Hazy deep mahogany hue with an off white head. Terrific sour unripened blackberry flavour with vinous undertones and elements of dark fruits, wood, and spices. Great flavours across the palate, with a sourness that isn’t bracing or harsh.

Alengrin (4529) - 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.
