COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
A very attractive alternative to the classic Pils. The Yerseke’s Mosselbier offers more color and more taste. First you taste the bitterness of the hops, immediately followed by a light sweetness of the roasted malt. The dark amber color in a special flute glass is an enrichment for the table.

The pour reveals a slightly cloudy amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is mostly sweet, caramel and honey, and yeasty, not bad at all so far. The flavor is very straight to the point, caramel and honey sweetness team up with dusty yeast to provide a decent entertainment. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. This beer is not as bad as it sounds.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Golden amber pour with a pillowy white head. Buttery malt aroma with a distinct waft of brine. Intriguing but sickly. Buttery malt, vanilla, tin and seaweed. A not unfamiliar note of ozone. Finishes with just enough bitterness to salvage it from sickliness. Sweet and fluffily carbonated. Pleasant enough, but do we need a mussel-flavoured beer to accompany our mussels any more than we need a slice of lemon in our Hoegaarden?

MiP (13599) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle, 5.2%. Malty aroma, with some oxidized notes, cardboard. Not too old, 3 days til BB date. Hazy amber colour. Small, bubbly head. The flavour is fruity and yeasty, slightly sweet aftertaste. Low bitterness, hint of cardboard. Low carbonation.

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy amber body with low carbonations and a thin off-white creamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma is rather thin. It carries some subtle sour fruity notes. Taste is decent and well balanced, but it lacks complexity. It carries yeasty hints and ends with a fair bittersweet finish. Not bad, but even not an average ale.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2007
Draught. Cherry, vanilla and something bitter in the aroma. A bit reddish colour, white foam. Fruity dry taste with apple, but a bit short finish.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 Clear copper body with a small off-white head. Light generic malt-caramel on the nose plus some woods. Taste is rather boring, not flavourful at all. A little malt-caramel, some melons, some wet leather and that’s about it. To avoid. Yersekes Mosselbier? To me it was more like Yerk! Hustlebier.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2006
Enjoyable if unusual beer. Malty, smooth, dry with a hint of Flemish-style sourness. Short finish, lacking a fullness. Great lacing on the glass. And damned if it didn’t go great with some curried mussels.

Any first impressions?
-A sturdy sheet of foam covers the transparent auburn.
-Toasted malts form a simple aroma.
-The sweet, juicy fruitiness of peaches, raisins, and cantaloups are ably paired with the bready, toasted malts.
-The comfortable effervescence renders drinkability, as the healthy maltiness is never too thin.

What if you dig deeper?
-It finishes very smoothly, a careful fading of the aforementioned maltiness.
-The hop bitterness mentioned in the commercial description doesn’t even reach the realm of afterthoughts.
-The fruitiness might have been helped by coriander here, but it isn’t obvious.
-This is a very humble, well-brewed Belgian amber ale, for which there is nothing much to say; I have no idea why this is such a small bottle though (25cl.)

Bottle; best before 04/04/2007.
