3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle from Traditions en Nord in Cassel and also at Blauwershof in Godewaersvelde. Murky, workaday bière de garde ambrée now subtitled ’vlaams potjebier’ (Flemish potty beer?) and riding the growing traditions of the north eastern France beer belt. Nothing massively distinctive about the taste.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Brown beer. Good carbonation. Has an almost geuze like sharpness with a nice malty depth to balance. Was better when fridge cold though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white and bubbly head. Aroma is mild citric and phenolic yeasty. Smooth phenolic and solid acidic with a mild cherry fruity note. Mild lasting phenolic note. Mild yeasty finish with a distinct sourness coming through. Mild off-note of a phenolic kind that disturbs the infection to be really good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle from Beersofeurope Magic_dave6’s] Aroma of cork, slightly earthy with some vinigary acidity and spice. More cork on the palate, slightly funky with a tart finish. Less nuanced than I had hoped, too heavy on the cork notes but still a nice beer.

was almost out of date by 20 days. Aroma gave straight up age, yeast apple ageness, which i am seriously fond of. Taste was sweetish yeasty fruity with the yeasty oldness and quite possibly one of the best beers iv had this month.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Dec 06). Interesting aroma - wood, earthy malts, leather and tobacco with a little funky yeast. Fairly drinkable body, slightly sweet with a little spice.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Hazy nut brown, brief head. Cellary butter aroma. Sweet and sadly corky with notes of red berries. Medium bodied with caramelly malt and low hop rate. Not at all what I was hoping for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botle conditioned, from Fabeers in York. Hazy amber bronze, moderate white head and gentle condition. Vaguely phenolic and dusty nose with traces of wild yeast and a background of sweet caramel. Slightly iron-tart and dry in the mouth, some gentle smokiness, a pleasant sweetness and a trace of fusty mouldiness. Dry funky finish with some flowery hoppiness and hints of mushroom.
