Préaris Smokey Li
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is strong herbal tea, soft smoke, mild citrus, malt, light grassy hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and above moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Nice Lapsang Souchong/beer hybrid, but you have to enjoy the tea to enjoy this one.

Cloudy iced tea brown color. Nice sweet sugary aroma. Deep sugary brown malts. Somewhat bready, not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests. Nice quad, will come back to it.

Brown, not entirely see through. Aroma is espresso coffee, nice. Taste is cooked coffee grounds. A bit of a let down. Like a dubbel with coffee grounds in it. Drinkable but nothing special.

Préaris Marius Reserva 2016 (Sherry)
Vliegende Paard has been ageing Marius, Andy Dewilde’s take on imperial stout, on sherry barrels for months and I have been looking forward to the end result all that time, so I’m glad it finally reached my tasting table today - in a generous 37.5 cl ’geuze’ bottle with crown cap (a cork would not look bad on this bottle, actually, but anyway). Opens with a hissing sound but no gushing. Medium thick, pale yellowish beige, creamy head, leaving pretty ’veils’ of lacing and quickly showing gaps in the middle, but retaining well, over a very dark beer, blackish in general appearance, but actually a very sombre bronze with hazy mahogany brown edges. Strong, quite complex and ’noble’, inviting bouquet of rum-soaked raisins and candied figs, medium dry sherry, wet leather, quite some phenolic cloves but not over the top here, wet oak wood including that typical ’vague vanilla’ oak tends to breathe, butterscotch, dried prunes, some liquorish and indeed ’dropwater’, black cherries, cassis, shoe polish, fainter hints of dry earth, whisky, pipe tobacco, damp tree leaves, Moroccan krachel, ginger powder, walnut liqueur. Fruity, sweetish onset but not exagerratedly estery, banana but in a refined, candied kind of way, pear, raisins, some blackcurrant sourishness underneath, but almost completely lacking in the (lightly) ’meaty’ umami character I found in (the first batch of) the basic beer; supple, ’full’ body with quite lively carbonation, feeling more like a hefty quad than an imperial stout, falling short in ’oiliness’ for that, like the basic beer. Stings of carbonation remain scarce and very subtle, while dried fruit sweetness and a thin berry-ish sourish factor travel on top of a big, mouth-filling malt middle with bready and caramelly character, developing bittering toastedness towards the end. Actual roasted bitterness comes in very late all the way in the finish, where it blends with a peppery, earthy hop bitter touch, drying woody tannins though not overly so, and the expected wave of alcohol, bringing forth an accent of dry sherry as well as a lot of boozy, peppery heat and a slight astringency on the root of the tongue. Toasted malt bittersweetness, dried fruit flavors, some sherry and this strong alcohol warmth combine to form the last impression after swallowing. Quite complex, warming sipper, very well-made indeed, with the sherry barrel adding oaky and - evidently - drying sherryish aspects to an otherwise very decent beer; I only had Marius very young from tap at a Bruges Bierfestival edition so far, first batch, and apart from a somewhat thin mouthfeel, I must say I was pleasantly surprised by it. I would therefore have to re-rate it in order to get a complete view on it, but in any case I thought it somewhat excelled the level of the many recent Belgian attempts at this prestigious beer style; in this form, I think this is best viewed as something like ’Belgian style imperial stout’ - in other words, a compromise of actual ’impy’ on the one hand and the old familiar trappist-coloured quadrupel on the other hand. Many beers like that have arisen in the past few years and if seen from this perspective, this is certainly among the finest of them, offering a complex and well-developed palate and bouquet in which the sherry barrel ageing has been applied in a well-balanced manner. Expect a highly profiled, classy and generous Belgian sipper of high technical quality here, rather than a smooth, clean and super-intense American BA stout - and then you will not be disappointed. This beer to me is another argument for recognition of a hybrid ’Belgian imperial stout’ style, which would be yeastier, earthier, a tad paler and less oily and thick than Anglo-Saxon imperial stout; heck, if the Americans already use this concept (think of Weyerbacher’s Tiny or - implicitly - the Spencer monks’ imperial stout, for example), why shouldn’t we Belgians?

Préaris New England IPA
New England IPA has been rapidly conquering the craft beer world in the past few years and examples of this new beer (sub-?)style are popping up in Western Europe too now; to my knowledge, this is only the second one in Belgium, after Hof ten Dormaal’s - flawed - attempt, and belonging to the continuously progressing series of limited releases brewed by Andy Dewilde in his own, small installation, with simple black and white labels. The bottle had leaked a bit during transport without loss or even loosening of the crown cap - so I prepared myself for fierce gushing and opened it over the sink as slowly and carefully as possible; still lots and lots of hissing and carbon dioxide pressure indeed, if I had opened this in one swift movement, there is no doubt I would have seen a very violent case of gushing so be warned. Typical ’gusher’ head I reckon: towering high and very foamy initially, but fairly loose and papery in structure and thus collapsing in a short amount of time, leaving behind a complex pattern of tight cobweb lacing around the glass, eventually setting into an irregular layer of egg-white mousse which in the end retained very well; immediately completely cloudy appearance, very misty peach blonde with an ochre tinge - haziness being a natural but well-known side effect of this type of IPAs, this is not worrying whatsoever, though it does seem to become all to ’murky ochre’ in the end even for a NEIPA, looking a lot more like a flawed Belgian blonde. The aroma, however, is already a reason for some concern: delicate ’tropical’ hoppiness is noticeable, but already at a first sniff, it is clear that it stands no chance against an assault of (for this style) inappropriate phenols and esters. Strong band aid and even liquorish-, clove-, cough syrup- and even sweetened medicine phenols, alongside even an unmistakable whiff of bubblegummy banana ester, brutally oppress much more delicate (though very clearly not all NEIPA-related) hints of marmelade and succade, fermenting orange juice, ripe cantaloupe flesh, soggy white bread, overripe sweet pear, apple peel, minerals, rainwater, honey, flowers, old yellowing cucumber flesh, soap, something vaguely minty and ’stroopwafel’. Unsurprisingly, this beer does not behave like a NEIPA in the mouth either: estery onset with hints of banana, orange and peach as well as slightly souring gooseberry, all numbed by - at least in the beginning - an unsurprisingly sharp degree of overcarbonisation, impairing drinkability and in no way related to the creamy, soft mouthfeel one expects from this style; instead, the mouthfeel in general feels rather unpleasantly soapy, the combination of which with the strong overcarbonation reminds much more of an average Belgian blonde rather than anything truly IPA-like. A soft bready malt sweetish backbone carries these esters along to an expectedly very phenolic - spicy but also, again, medicinal - finish with the bubblegummy and soapy effects still lingering; breadiness and earthiness expectedly increase when adding more of the yeast sediment while deep below, the hops establish an earthy, bit peppery, soft bitterness of medium duration, at the same time desperately and vainly trying to push their delicate citrusy and sweet fruit notes through the unbreakable wall of phenols. The label sadly does not mention any hop varieties (a missed opportunity in this type of beers, in my opinion) but what it does mention, is the addition of sugar, which I have not yet seen in any (American) NEIPA recipe - though I am not a brewer of course, so who am I to judge. I can, however, judge whether this is a successful attempt at this new, overly hyped style or not, and in my view it very clearly is not. It may come a bit closer to it in theory than Dormaal’s Troebel in Paradise, but if anything, this one is even more flawed from a purely technical viewpoint; like Troebel, it loses itself in completely irrelevant Belgian side effects, the phenolic part of which is in this case especially strong, to the point that I would consider it a flaw even if we were talking about a Belgian blonde or tripel here. Drinkable beer, in all, don’t get me wrong, but if you tackle a style as hyped and acclaimed as NEIPA is these days, you expose yourself to more strict scrutiny I guess, creating high expectations from the geeks and afficionados. The audience this beer is trying to reach, will most likely be largely disappointed, as those expectations are clearly not met here. I hope Andy intends to immerse himself much more deeply into this style and I’ll be following the first steps of NEIPA in Belgium with suspicion and interest - but to me, this style is still non-existent in Belgium so far. Sorry Andy!

Préaris Quadrocinno
2017-05-15. Dark brown body, moderate foamy tan head and lace. 3++ Aroma has sweet dark fruit notes, moderate sugars and alcohol, nutty accents, touches of coffee. 7++ Flavour has similar sweet dark fruit base, notes of candi sugar and brown sugar, muted coffee undertones maybe, if you look for it, particularly in the aftertaste. Smooth medium to full bodied palate, softly effervescent. Significantly better than I expected from the description to be honest! 8/4/7/3/15-16 Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

Préaris Grand Cru 2015 (Bourbon BA: Maker’s Mark)
Shared 2014, 375 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a clear, amber/mahogany color, tan foam that quickly formed a persistent, thin ring, light film, and spots of lacing. The nose was malt sweetness, a bit of cocoa, mellow dark fruit, and strong saltiness & soy. Only light to medium bodied, with low carbonation, and thinning texture, the taste was somewhat similar, with some barrel & bourbon hints, and continuing soy. Didn’t cellar very well for 3 years. Had potential, but disappointing result.

23/IV/17 - 33cl bottle, shared @ post-ZBF train ride - BB: 14/XII/17 (2017-551) Thanks to Andy for getting me the last bottle from his fridge!

Little cloudy yellow beer, creamy white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: floral, bit sweet, honey, bit fruity, citrus, minerals, yeast. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: pretty salty start indeed, bit sourish, sea water, little earthy, not getting the smoked part from the fish, actually. Aftertaste: more salty, yeast, bit funky. Definitely very interesting brew, would’ve liked it a bit more sourish / lemony though.

Préaris Grand Cru 2015 (Bourbon BA: Maker’s Mark)
0.375 l bottle from ’Gall & Gall’ (Cuijk) as ’Préaris Grand Cru 2014 Bourbon Barrel Aged’, best before November 2017. Clear, dark reddish brown to black with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, off-white layer. Sweetish, boozy and slightly fruity aroma of lots of vanilla and bourbon, caramel, oak and some prunes. Quite sweet, malty, slightly boozy and a bit fruity taste of lots of vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisins, prunes and some caramel, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, not so boozy but warming and a bit woody finish. Over medium-bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel, almost completely flat. Nice sipper, well-balanced even if the barrel took over massively, very pleasant.

23/04/2017 @home - 33cl bottle from Malt Attacks. Red to rose with big creamy tanned head. Nose is some grains, lots of, lots of beetroot. Taste has some maltyness, beetroot juice, light sour touch, red fruit touch, some grains, earthy (as I would’ve expected from a beetroot). I was very keen on trying this, glad I found it by luck. It did live up somehow to my expectations, only feels sometimes a bit like beetrootjuice. But damn nice idea!

Clear chestnut dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, sugary, caramel, alcohol. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body.

Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt with light coffee notes is pleasant. Taste is a mix of caramelized malt with some residual candi sugar notes with some light floral coffee notes. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting mix with more drinkability then I was expecting.

Préaris Me So Juicy
Bottle thnx to Andy ! Story has it the beer wasn’t being sold day 2 of Zythos, since Andy wasn’t satisfied with how it came out to be. I am a fan of quality control and honesty in brewers, and thus I want to salute him for doing so. The fact he gave us a bottle - if what I heard is true, that is- must mean it’s a pure act of goodness. he’ll know we’ll rate a beer of him he isn’t completely happy with, yet still gives us the chance of trying it. Thnx for that, Andy ! Anyone reading should also bare in mind that - if all of the above is true - this score will be lower than what the beer should get, in ideal circumstances. Bottle. pours hazy, yeasty blonde. OK white head fades rather fast. Smell is rather weak, mild fruity aspect. Taste is decently bitter. Fruityness is very mild. Very malty though. I love this malt VS hazyhop creamyness VS decent bitterness. I can agree a beer with this name should be more fruiy, but I don’t mind drinkin this at all. decent mf, higher side of carbo. Not bad at all, yet perhaps a bit too subtile and hops, and a bit too overwhelming in yeast. IF this is a ’lesser batch’ it only proves how good the better batches will be.

Thank you for sharing German speaking RB Crew! Sampled draft @ ZBF 2017. Very dark brown to black, tanned head. Nose is mocha, hazelnut, gravy, mocha powder, instant chocolate milk mix, some alcohol. Sherry is odd here, strangely boozy going towards varnish & plastic notes, not really integrated with cacao, mocha, dark bread, powdery chocolate, feels a bit raw, messy varnish notes, too young? Body is plastic, low varnish, cacao, not as thick as you would expect. Pleasant in general but not that sexy for a BA RIS.
