4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 first of all, out of the ordenary, i’d like to talk about the bottle ( wel, label) here. its my second beer from this ’brewerie’ (they’re guys making beer at proefbrouwerij, they’re called verhuisbrouwerij themselfs and made lustem as well ) i enjoyed the other one realy much. labels are like de molen, just text. but it says all ! the amount of beer made in the batch ( this ones a 500 l onley ! ) the adress, description, idea of the brewerie, how they make the beer ( specified even the yeast and hops) so yeah ! big fan ! lets see what their second baby will do to me !
first thing to do, is it proves to be a GUSHER. it was brewed october 8, bottled november 5th. today is november 3th 2012. 2 years old, still a gusher ...
dark, orange brown ( they make SUCH nice colours ! ) white, maybe some small brownish part foam, wich keeps getting.. bigger (?) dont even know hos this is possible :p
not so much of a smell
taste: not that carbonated at all ! not that its flat neither, its just how it should be.
a little ’sourness’ kind of hint to it, warmth, reminds me of a beer like the struise make their good stuff ( panbnepot etc) yet it something totaly diffrent though, its just .. so good quality, complexity, balanced,.. how does this get so low ratings?
realy drinkable. it has this candysugary thing in it ( wich may explain me thinking of pannepot? ) anyway its so light, you can drink it like a lager. yet so complex, tastefull in the back of your mouth. its a beer that says hello, enjoy me like watter, and whispers behind it ’ and i taste great too’ (if that description makes any scence ) deffinetly recomended ! these brewers do better than 99 % of belgian brewers ! respect !
other detail : this is the first batch (the one i had)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle at Kerstbierfestival ’11. Strange and fairly bitter brown ale with apparent nut character and a light, odd vinous tartness that might not be in the plans but I happen to like. New Orleans pralines in the nose with touches of mocha and caramel. Dark chestnut color with sturdy light brown head. Fair bitterness balanced by light sweetness before going rather dry. Well-rounded in the end. Vinous and toasty aftertaste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
15cl bottle sample @ Kerstbierfestival ’11, Essen. Brown with dirty head. Nose : Caramel and honey notes. Sip : mouthful feeling with pillows of carbonation (can’t swallow it properly). Sweet start with a bit sour dryness on the end. Something I would have to try again some time to give a more appropriate rating.
