Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Sweet with a hint of funk. Floral fruity aroma with a whiff of pine and a hint of funk. Pours almost opaque pink hued amber with a foamy fizzy light pink head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Lots of pine and citrus hops like an IPA with some farmhouse funk along with it. They don't really go all that well together. Like it doesn't know if it wants to be an IPA or a Saison. The floral notes are really nice and there's a fruity sweetness that's kinda nice too. But too much conflict between the pine and the farmhouse.

Adelbertís Black Rhino
Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Gotta say I really donít get the hate for this one. Dark pour, mild smoke to make things interesting atop the mellow dark-roast character. Almost like a gentle smoked beer; I quite like it. Chocolate and sweetness is fairly background, and itís low abv contributes to an easy drinkability.

Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Nice malt-forward Biere de Garde, tasted at two years of age. Malt flavors rise over a light farmhouse character, very easy to drink. Well crafted.

Adelbertís Pabloís Pale Ale
Foggy copper pour with a white head. Strong bitter piny hop presence is known right off the bat in the aroma. The flavor is medium but the finish decidedly bitter.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Can. This beer is pink -- and I donít mean a little pink, I mean full on in your face pink. Muppet pink. And thatís OK. Nose is lemon, phenols, hibiscus, papaya, and guava. A touch sweet up front, then a rush of dry tropical fruit; the hibiscus is definitely there, along with pineapple, mango, more papaya, and that dry spiciness that says saison. Imagine white pepper on a tropical fruit salad. Sounds good, doesnít it? Hey, the Dutch put black pepper on strawberries, and itís fantastic. Great long, citrusy finish. Tasty.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Light, refreshing, bright, brewed with hibiscus flowers and supporting a good cause. This beer pours bright pink (from the 100 lbs of hibiscus flowers - no fake coloring). I appreciate the color and flavor the hibiscus gives. Citrusy, fruity with a hint of tartness. Totally crushable in this warm weather.

Dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruit and a little booze. Belgian yeast, whiskey/boozy flavor. Better as it warms...bottle says 55-60. I would agree, but I was impatient. Wait for it.

Adelbertís Tripel B (Bad Boy Brew)
4 oz draft goblet taster at Lone Star Taps & Caps in Lewisville, Texas. The pour is a clear golden yellow with not much of a white head. The aroma is sweet floral, herbal yeast and a big full traditional Tripel nose. The taste is sweet, floral hay and the clove herbal Tripel yeast. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with soft to low carbonation and the yeast in the alcohol warming finish. This is a well made Tripel.

Adelbertís Tripel B (Bad Boy Brew)
Pours a very hazy golden color with a frothy white head. Light aromas of candied sugar, some fruit and light alcohol. I definitely picked up some pear in the flavor along with some grass/hay. A fairly light body, especially for a Tripel. Overall itís satisfactory but nothing special.

Adelbertís Danciní Monks
Batch 9, bottled 3/25/2014 - over 2 years old. Struggled a bit with the cork, but eventually was able to remove it cleanly. Hazy medium mahogany with a dense two-finger head and minimal lace. Rich dark fruit - plum, fig and raisin - aromas with chewy bread, yeast and a hint of alcohol. Taste is mostly fruity sweetness with a breath of alcohol and yeast notes. Nothing hoppy about it. Full body, generous effervescence, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness in the finish.

Adelbertís Vintage Series Barrel of Love 2015 Belgian Quad
750 ml 2015 bottle from Tavour, labeled whiskey barrel aged Belgian-style Quad. Nose is oaky vanilla, golden raisins, and fig newtons. Hazy dark brown with a medium light tan head. Flavor is very sweet, caramelly, dark fruits with hints of woody vanilla and bourbon. Actually very nice if you like sweeter quads.

Un voile de mousse trŤs mince se forme sur une biŤre jaune paille embrouillťe. Des arŰmes de foin appuient des effluves fruitťs rappelant les oranges sanguines et les citrons. Des fruits jaunes plus mŻrs se retrouvent en bouche et la levure champenoise apporte ťvidemment une gazťification remarquable. Par contre, la biŤre est beaucoup trop sucrťe, ce qui g‚che lamentablement líexpťrience, ŗ mon humble avis.

Phenolic, estery, fruity nose. Drinks like an imperial blonde or Belgian pale ale. Banana, peardrop, bubblegum, pepper. Sort of sticky, sweet flavor, a little heavy in flavor and overpowering the tongue. Slightly hot. A little bitter, lemon pith at the finish.

Adelbertís Vintage Series Barrel of Love 2015 Belgian Quad
2/26/16. On tap at Metzlerís BBQ, Denton. Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Weird aroma, some of the whiskey and oak, coffee, etc., but definite sour cherry, tart, etc. Light flavor, too light bodied, some coffee and chocolate, but definitely sourness. Not awful, but too thin and definitely infected.

Adelbertís Tripel B (Bad Boy Brew)
Tap at Brass Tap, Fort Worth. Pours pretty light yellow, not too good looking. Like poorly hydrated urine. Aroma is fairly standard tripel, but a it mild mild, lemon, clove, definitely some nice Ester sugars, not too complex but not bad either. Flavor is hmm, I mean, itís kind of what a Belgian tripel is, but very mold and very sweet. Itís a bit too sweet for me. Clove, sugar, lots of sugar and esters. Itís fine but nothing exceptional.

My Bottom Line:
Fusel alcohol and honey surprise, as white grapes and big bubbles attempt to rally this Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the misty blond.
-I sincerely doubt they did all that is required to warrant the íBrutí mention.
-The esters are pleasant but are sadly taken over by a harsh alcohol presence.
-This is billed as being íbone dryí, yet the first thing you smell is a whiff of raw sugar...

Bottle.

Batch 3 750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts (way lighter malts than a lot of dubbels), some light floral notes, and faint notes of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a pretty nice blend for being so old and a dubbel. Really carbonated - shot the cork off. Not a bad beer at all, just not my favorite style, which is why I might like this more since it doesnít seem to be true to the style. EDIT: Really harsh on the finish. Starts cool, finishes bad.
