Buskers Devochka
33cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense hazy gold with white foam, very fine. Aroma is fruity and quite alcoholic. Body is medium-dense, with intense carbonation and relevant stickiness. Taste is moderate in sweetness, with marked bitterness and maybe also some spiciness. Quite extreme and exaggerated for its alcohol level. Finish is long and bitter.

Buskers Devochka
Tripel from an Italian beer company I hadn't heard of before, apparently brewed at Extraomnes. Bottle from Beergium. Fairly thick and densely moussy, 'membranously' lacing, very stable, egg-white head slowly thinning in the middle, over an initially practically clear, very warm orange-hued 'old gold' beer with lively strings of fizz throughout, shifting to a misty, much deeper orange-tinged darkish ochre with sediment. Convincingly tripel-like, rustic but also very notably boozy aroma of spritzy orange zest, dried biscuit, ripe apricots, ginger, dried banana, honey liqueur, old white pepper, gin, mandarin, calvados, clove-like phenols, meringue, fresh camomile, papier maché, old straw, melon, baker's yeast and dough especially (or in fact almost only) after adding the sediment. Fruity onset, estery as is to be expected from a Belgian style ale, with hints of banana but in a 'clean', not overly perfumey or sweet way, pairing well with sharper, more crisp impressions of freshly cut red apple, peach, unripe pear and raw pineapple, altogether sweet (residual 'white' sugar syrup, mostly) with a deeper, sourish, crisp edge to it, quite firmly carbonated but not overly so for a tripel, adding sourishness and minerally aspects. Bready, soft malt sweetish base, relatively clean at first but 'dirtier' (and also softer) as more of the yeast goes in, accentuating the breadiness; floral, even somewhat zesty, quite aromatic but still very "Old World" hoppiness in the end, bitter and mingled with mild spicy 'phenolics' - but what I had been fearing from the "sniffing phase" onwards, is soon confirmed: a peppery, stinging, heating, wodka- or gin-like 'white' alcohol effect is already popping up subtly at the beginning, but wreaks havoc from the middle of the tongue onwards, ending in a very wry, unpleasantly heating, almost 'white spirit'-like booziness which eventually overpowers the aforementioned subtleties of the hops. I like the aroma, I like the way this beer imitates sweeter Belgian tripels (or even 'edelbieren') without descending into bubblegummy esteriness too much, I even like the flavour for the first half - but I very much dislike the harsh, strong, fusel- and spirit-like alcohol effect ruining the second half completely. A good Belgian style tripel (is there a non-Belgian style within tripel to begin with?) should be warming and 'treacherous', sure, but a really good one also hides its ABV much, much better than this. Too bad: as said, I really like the general flavour profile these guys have constructed here, but it's a shame this profile is then ruined by brutal ethanol. Hadn't it been for this overt booziness, I'd easily given this a 3.6 or something, but in this shape, I think 3.0 is more than generous enough.

Bottiglia 0,33: Buskers Birrificio Extraomnes. A mio parere questa birra è piuttosto singolare, cioè che non possiede in pieno un proprio stile. All'inizio sembra essere una belga(tripel) infatti si nota un abbondante schiuma salire velocemente, ma una volta degustata tutto l'aroma dolce che si è riscontrato all'inizio viene sopraffatto dall'amaro del luppolo alla fine. Credo che non si possa esprimere un giudizio vero e proprio su questa birra dato che si mischiano due stili differenti che tra loro non c'entrano un gran che..

Degustata in bottiglia da 33 centilitri. Colore ambrato carico e schiuma leggera ma forse non troppo persistente, abbastanza torbida. Odore erbaceo, lievemente fruttato e frutta secca (mandorle), sapore uva passa e ben liquorosa. Birra prevalentemente dolce sia al palato che al gusto ma corposa e di sapore intenso e deciso. La bottiglia da 33 le sta stretta.

At La Tana in Brussels. Medium thick, greyish white, stable, cobweb-lacing head, hazy chestnut brown robe with bronze-ish tinge. Aroma of hazelnut, elderberry, leather, butterscotch, dry earth, pear, hint of iron and a subtle layer of peat. Fruity, estery onset, dried berries, pear, vague banana somewhere, caramelly and bit nutty malt core becoming somewhat toasted as is to be expected from a Scotch, fluffy and filling, bittering finish, quite clean with the smoky and peaty touch returning, earthy and peppery hop bitterishness and warming alcohol. Interesting and more than decent.

Stesso identico profilo della versione "base" ma al palato è più rotonda e il passaggio in botte regala quel sentore legnoso/fruttato che arricchisce il bouquet, anche il carattere mieloso ne esce rinforzato. Ottima.

Bottle @ home. Giallo ambrato carico, schiuma biancastra fine piuttosto persistente. Aroma molto intenso fruttato , agrumato. Maltato, con zucchero (sembra candito) ed esteri del lievito che ricordano lo speziato e la pesca sciroppata. Gusto abboccato, alcolico, fruttato di pesca ed agrumi. Amara senza eccessi. Calda piena rotonda . Mediamente carbonata. Armonica e perfettamente equilibrata.

Craft Clerkenwell. Keg. Very hazy orange - amber beer, residual white head. Palate is slightly viscous but the carbonation level is low. Sweet pale malts, slightly sticky and with a honey tone. Thick sweet marmalade with a light touch of fresh orange peel. Resinous grapefruit. A little floral sweetness. Smooth dry finish. Mild peel bitter linger. Odd palate but big flavours, overall pretty good.

300 ml on tap at Spring Beer Festival. Pale gold, quite hazy, with a small, creamy and persistent bright white head. Good lacings. Bready and biscuity notes in the beginning, just before a mesmerizing citrusy (mandarin, blood orange, grapefruit) explosion. Perfectly balanced between slightly bitter and slightly astringent components. Again quite citrusy, lingering and clean aftertaste. Juicy but at the same time dry and refreshing. Very good!

300 ml on tap at Spring Beer Festival 2015. Dark gold, pretty hazy, with a big, fluffy, forever lasting white head. Fresh hop notes on the nose, quite dank and slightly citrusy. Freshly cut grass reminiscence as well. More than average herbal astringency upfront, pleasent rooty and hoppy taste, relatively refreshing with a dry finish. Nice, but I would score it so much higher if that astringency wasn’t so dominant..

300 ml on tap at Spring Beer Festival 2015. Dark amber/light copper, quite hazy, with a fluffy, forever lasting off white head. Quite unique nose: wet tea leaves, burnt caramel, candied orange peel, subtly smoky presence and just a hint of alchool. Mild boozy astringency upfront, typical toffee sweetness, moderaly sweet malts presence, ridicolous drinkability for the ABV. Well done Buskers, this a great DIPA.
