Préaris Red Dragon
330 ml. bottle. BBF 10/03/2017. Dark amber orange, small but solid tanned head. Nose is pleasant thick pine resin, syrupy hops, low bitter herbs & orange peel syrupy hops, malty in a pleasant way, herbal malts. Lively body, lightly fizzy. Malty in a good way, touch herbal malts, thick pine resin goop, bitter orange peel, pleasant bitterness not overly so, touch herbal, faint mineral streak. Lively carbonation makes it a touch empty (minor note), ABV is also not very high, it has the hop profile of a DIPA. Low mineral finish. Overall drinks pretty well, hops are quite lovely, malty touch suits it well. I think that a +/- 8 % ABV version of this would really rock (or a slight tweak of this recipe), this deserves a bigger batch than 50 litter. Pretty respectable IPA.

Préaris Rauchbier
Another limited ’boutique beer’ with black and white label by Andy’s Vliegende Paard brewery, those are really hard to catch up with... Top-fermented Rauchbier with medium thick, off-white head retaining as a firm moussy edge and as a thin veil over the middle, slowly showing gaps; hazy peachy orange blonde robe with quite lively sparkling, turning misty and deeper amber with deposit. Aroma has unmistakable smoked malt (mouth-watering smoked bacon as well as smoked paprika powder), olive oil, roses, fresh cigarette tobacco, dried orange peel, fresh toast, grass, dried apricot, soap, fried egg, chicken spices, ripe gooseberry, hints of banana peel and stale ’armpit sweat’ (excusez le mot). Spritzy, crisp onset, minerally carbonation is the first thing that meets the tongue but calms down quickly, subdued fruit sweetishness (dried apricot and some very subtle banana ester again) with an underlying redcurrant sourishness; the sharp carbonation coarsens the mouthfeel a bit, but the overall body remains lean and smooth, with a backbone of nutty malt ’bitterish sweetishness’ in its core. The smoked malts effect unmistakably pops up somewhere in the middle and increases towards the end, yielding a retronasal smoked ham and smoked paprika effect in a not too obtrusive way; its smoky flavor is then cleverly fused with peppery, leafy hop bitterness, a combo which makes for a dry, quenching, spicy ending, with only a thin trace of the fruitiness and malt sweetness piercing through. Hop bitterness gets the last word and sticks to the throat for a long time. Apart from a few ’sweaty’ and soapy elements in the nose which I think do not really match up, this is still an accomplished Rauchbier in my opinion: it delivers sufficient smokiness without overdoing it, refraining from becoming a one-trick pony as is often the case with this particular type of beer. For me personally, the Belgian yeast traits, in all, work quite well with the smoked malt effect, but I can easily see how some of my esteemed colleagues below expected something more radical along the lines of the traditional Bamberg Rauchbiers. But those are lagers, and this one is essentially still a Belgian (blond or even amber) ale adorned with a Rauchbier-like character, rather than making the smoke the essence of its existence. If you look at it like that - and like smoked malt - then surely this will not disappoint.

Préaris White Gecko
"Session white IPA" made for Gents Bierfestival after an idea of tderoeck. Moussy, creamy, egg-white head, cloudy blonde robe with ochre-ish hue. Aroma of lemon zest, soap, green banana, freshly cut apple peel, orange peel, touch bitter honey. Fruity, with hints of apple, faint banana and pineapple, somewhat spritzy mouthfeel, soft middle with soapy wheat and bready barley well matched against each other but sharper grainy edges too, supple, mild and aromatic hoppiness in the finish, less drying than I expected (and hoped) but very pleasant, with retronasal citrus peel and spice notes. Refreshing - session IPAs, white or regular, should be a lot more ubiquitous in this country as flavorful alternatives many of to the lower ABV beers traditionally regarded as ’session’ by the general public here (standard pale lager, in most cases).

Nose is mellow wheat, bread, touch sugary sweetness. taste is easy drinking mellow wheat, low odd paper, light bitterness grass & some pepper. Body is wheat & papper. Easy drinking, okay but I was hoping for hop qualities, there is some low bitterness here but no real fruity character etc. bitterness is low. Approaching more a session wheat ale.

Syvän tummanruskea olut paksuhkolla beigellä, pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Karamellisen maltainen makea tuoksu, jossa myös lakritsaa ja suklaata, houkuttelee maistamaan. Maku samalla kertaa lakritsaisen ja suklaisen makea, mutta myös katkera. Makean täyteläinen ja ennen kaikkea paahdetun maltainen jälkimaku, jättää pitkän makean häivähdyksen suuhun. Todellinen herkutteluolut kylmiin talvi-iltoihin.

750ml, bottled March 25th 2014. It pours t dark brown, over an inch of off white foam and kills it with the lacing. Dark pitted fruit and caramel malt straight up in the smell. Hint of slight oxidation. The taste is delightful. Dark pitted fruit with a mild sweetness from the malt and, again, hints of oxidation. Bit of cardboard and butterscotch. In a quantity that’s easily manageable for my palate. I call it full bodied with medium carbonation. An excellent example of a Quad here. I am glad that I got to enjoy a bottle all the myself.
