Bire du Brugs Bierinstituut brasse chez de Proef, et titrant 7% abv. Elle contient 5 malts dorge, et 2 houblons: Saaz et Amarillo. Couleur ambre fonc cuivr moyen. Clart nette. Bulles fines partout vives. Mousse beige fonc bien crmeuse avec des nappes en haut, stable 5 mm. Armes de cerise rouge sucre, reine-claude, miel de tilleul, malt cara et grill, candi brun. 1re bouche douce avec beaucoup de malt et dpices brunes. Arrire-bouche riche, assez dense, sur lOrient. 2me o la texture sarrondit encore. Bel quilibre malt/houblon avec du piment doux. 3me la superbe densit de saveurs, avec un zeste dorange pour peaufiner. Arrire-bouche riche en nuances, complexe. La longueur dbute sur le caramel et du houblon, dans un assemblage curieux mais vif. La suite est beaucoup plus homogne et fondue. La levure est pice, herbace, trs bien pour le genre. Lalcool remplit son rle, mais je le trouve un peu au taquet. La finale donne quelques baies des bois et myrtille. CONCLUSION: une grande recette assurment, une ralisation trs belle mais qui nest pas sans faille, notamment en dbut de longueur et sur le soutien apport par lalcool.

bartlebier (3930) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Sample draught @BBF 02/2014, ZA. Complex malt-aromatics ranging from candied orange, maple syrup, prune jam and cassonade, evened out by a modern dry palate and great choice of dry hops to top off the desert dubbel base with spicy orange zest and some green hop bitterness. No traditional Belgian estery fumes whatsoever. Easily one of the more accomplished, elegant and finely composed beers, at risk of being overshouted by bolder un-belgian concoctions at the festival. - To revisit from bottle.

33 cl. bottle @ t Brugs Beertje // 7 % Belgian Ale commissioned by Brugs Bierinstituut at the Proef // havent seen this anywhere else except @ t Brugs Beertje & @ Brugs Beer Festival // assume that this is a very local beer // label is just the name in fancy Germanic letter type // reddish amber with an uneven off-white head // smells of sweet caramel, candy sugar, caramelized apple, caramel malts // taste is Belgian yeast, sweet caramel apples, candy fruits, caramelized brown sugar, dash coffee, bitter floral finish // bit too much carb. for me // much better than I expected this is quite good // definitely better & more memorable than the White Zwaan that they also commissioned, if you ever come across this, you might consider picking it up
