Douberd
Epe Bier Collectief Duuster Wit 3.4
(Epe Bier Collectief Duuster Wit) Tap at NBF 2016. By the colour alone this is not a dunkelweizen. Deep orange coloured body but not a dark one at any case. Tall thick head, slightly off-white, good retention. Aroma of wheat, clove, ripe pears, light banana. Taste follows, wheat, clove, spicy yeast, ripe pears and bananas. Quite sweet. Medium body with good carbonation. Not bad.

Epe Bier Collectief Afschot 3.4
Une schwarzbier de 5,4 % abv, avec malts pils et choco. Trois houblons : Hallertau Hersbrucker, Hallertau Perle, Citra. Mon exemplaire était à plus d’un an avant sa date. Couleur noir roux châtain, à l’opacité moyenne. Nappage fin de surface. Arômes de malt joliment grillé, café, chocolat, pointe de nougat, noisette. 1ère bouche souple à l’excellente entame malt grillé/café. Arrière-bouche sur le café de grand-mère, soigneusement passé au ramponneau. 2ème avec malt grillé toujours, mais le malt pils passe davantage. Arrière-bouche agréable, équilibrée, mais pas complexe. 3ème où le côté lager blonde passe un peu trop au-dessus de l’ensemble. Arrière-bouche plus courte que la 2ème . Longueur sympathique, mais assez fluide. Jambes fines, marquées. Levure douce, lisse (pas de refermentation). Alcool faible sur la longueur, il peine, il voudrait mais ne peut pas élever le niveau. Finale linéaire, mais sans défaut. CONCLUSION : une schwarz qui me fait penser en quelque sorte à une black lager. Elle est plus que sympathique, mais ne peut prétendre au haut niveau.

Epe Bier Collectief Afschot Oak Aged 3.5
Dark brown color. The nose reminds me of at a cheap nightclub on a weekday to drink copious amounts JD and coke. The mouth is a bit sour and astringent and thin bodied but still not bad, with lots of bourbon character. Chocolate malts shine. Bourbon lingers in the finish. Pretty decent for 5.5%. As it warmed up I enjoyed this less and less and it became more astringent.

Praotnat 2015 3
Bottle at home. Aroma is bready malt, sweet candied fruit, floral notes, a bit sulphury, spicy notes. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Strange beer, the used hops promise fruitiness, but there’s little to be found. More of a floral malty and light spicy beer with some hoppy notes.

Praotnat 2015 3.4
Helder amberkleurig. kleine cremekleurige kraag. Veel te weinig aroma, klein beetje verse hop. Smaak is wat beter. Verse hop, licht fruitig (abrikoos) en vooral wat grassig. Niet erg uitgesproken, maar toch wel lekker.

An ok quad, no personality but a more than good copy of the Belgian quads. Not so boozy, could do with maybe a little less candied sugar but a very nice beer nonetheless. Bottle from Van Erp Groningen.

Bottle @ home. Dark brown to black colour with a medium sized beige to light brown head. Smells roasty, iron, floral, slightly soapy. Tastes liquorice, quite sweet, slightly caramel, slightly roasty, slightly coffee, floral and slightly soapy. I like the roastyness (but it?s kinda weak) and dislike the floral/soapy aspect. Thin to medium body, soft carbo.

Epe Bier Collectief Zzzoef 3.2
Bottle from Burg Bieren, BB March 2016, large sample. Clear light golden color, short frothy white head. Aroma has lots of ginger, bit citrus, slight grainy malt, bit earthy and grassy hop, slight spicy yeast. Bit bitter in taste, ginger, bit citrussy. Dry in the finish, some ginger, some bitterness lingers. But all in all ginger dominates. Probably pairs good with sushi, but as a standalone beer its not more than ok.

Not a bad beer, I’m not sure why its getting such low ratings. It actually reminds me of a sahti, but with ginger and pepper instead of juniper. They didn’t hold anything back in the spicing of this beer, so be prepared, but i thought it was pretty decent.

Aroma is musty with apricot, some ginger and hayish tones. Also hints of toffee. Flavour has cardboard, ginger, some ashy tones and mild minerals. Feels like a cheap & old bulk lager with some ginger added.

Epe Bier Collectief Zzzoef 2.5
33cl van Erp Groningen, bleek gouden met minimale witte kraag. aroma waarin de gember zeer duidelijk merkbaar is, verder kaneel, mout, ik denk dat dit een biertje gaat worden die je ofwel lekker vindt dan wel niet te zuipen. We gaan het zien.... eerste slok.... hmmm gember zeer merkbaar, zwak bittertje, pittig karakter van de gember, behoorlijk droog in de mond, citrus zuurtje, hop, pilsmout, zwakke body, normale carbonisatie, tja ik moet zeggen het is zeker niet slecht... alleen is het gember té dominant aanwezig in het bier... .denk niet dat ik de 33cl zal opdrinken, een proefglasje is genoeg.
positief: ik vind het etiket prachtig ;)
