A very attractive alternative to the classic Pils. The Yersekes Mosselbier offers more color and more taste. First you taste the bitterness of the hops, immediately followed by a light sweetness of the roasted malt. The dark amber color in a special flute glass is an enrichment for the table.

The pour reveals a slightly cloudy amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is mostly sweet, caramel and honey, and yeasty, not bad at all so far. The flavor is very straight to the point, caramel and honey sweetness team up with dusty yeast to provide a decent entertainment. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. This beer is not as bad as it sounds.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Golden amber pour with a pillowy white head. Buttery malt aroma with a distinct waft of brine. Intriguing but sickly. Buttery malt, vanilla, tin and seaweed. A not unfamiliar note of ozone. Finishes with just enough bitterness to salvage it from sickliness. Sweet and fluffily carbonated. Pleasant enough, but do we need a mussel-flavoured beer to accompany our mussels any more than we need a slice of lemon in our Hoegaarden?

Bottle, 5.2%. Malty aroma, with some oxidized notes, cardboard. Not too old, 3 days til BB date. Hazy amber colour. Small, bubbly head. The flavour is fruity and yeasty, slightly sweet aftertaste. Low bitterness, hint of cardboard. Low carbonation.

Eructoblaster (4098) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy amber body with low carbonations and a thin off-white creamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma is rather thin. It carries some subtle sour fruity notes. Taste is decent and well balanced, but it lacks complexity. It carries yeasty hints and ends with a fair bittersweet finish. Not bad, but even not an average ale.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2007
Draught. Cherry, vanilla and something bitter in the aroma. A bit reddish colour, white foam. Fruity dry taste with apple, but a bit short finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 Clear copper body with a small off-white head. Light generic malt-caramel on the nose plus some woods. Taste is rather boring, not flavourful at all. A little malt-caramel, some melons, some wet leather and thats about it. To avoid. Yersekes Mosselbier? To me it was more like Yerk! Hustlebier.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2006
Enjoyable if unusual beer. Malty, smooth, dry with a hint of Flemish-style sourness. Short finish, lacking a fullness. Great lacing on the glass. And damned if it didnt go great with some curried mussels.
