24/IV/2012 - 33cl bottle @ Klaas’ place - BB: III/12 (2012-401) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the beer!


Pretty cloudy muddy red brown beer, no head, some bit and smaller chunks floating around. Aroma: little sweet, some spices, chocolate, sour berries. MF: low carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet start, fruity touches, sweet malts, little meaty. Aftertaste: ripe to rotten fruits, red berries, some dark chocolate. In all, not quite as bad as I had suspected.

NikkTwist (2855) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Draught. Poured burnt sienna with a white head that disappeared quickly. Tastes of dark cherry and other crisp dark druits. Bit tart, especially on the finish. Not bad, but very one note. Better on draft than in the bottle.

bhensonb (14321) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle at 6.8% from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours very hazy dark copper with small dark chunks. Frothy beige head. There’s an extremely strong evergreen, perhaps spruce, aroma. Full bodied and very frothy. There’s a sour component, lots of fruit, and still evergreen. Yeast/spice. Probably more stuff, but it’s all complexly intermingled. Certainly more dry than not. Very tasty, if a bit challenging.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Certainly not the best example from ’T Gaverhopke but I snagged in for $1.99 on closeout. The nose is slightly sweet, sour and a touch of frozen horse manure. The taste is flat but has a complexity similar to the nose... sweet,sour fruit ,cinnamon,barnyard... it like you took a really good beer and added a liberal splash of bath water...
