Préaris Belgian Bio Hop Ale
Bab 2017. Thnx for sharing 77Ships and Tderoeck ! Pours unclear blonde. OK white head. Smell is bit hoppy. Malty, some yeast. Taste is sharp. Overcarbonated. Bit bitter. Very, very mild hoppyness. OK beer, just perhaps not as sexy as I’d expected from this Brewery.

375ml cork and wire bottle, vintage 2014, No. 02327. Provided by Finn. A filmy layer to a deep rosewood coloured body. Spotty lacing. Subdued doughy aroma with hints of dried fruits. Interesting blend of prunes, dough, and oak added by a bourbon touch. Dried fruity ending. Vinous impression. Full bodied. Gets rather sweet in the long run. Nice in smaller amounts (Shared with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 11.02.2017).

Donkerbruin bier, nauwelijks een schuimkraag. Whisky overheerst in de neus. In de mond aroma van alcohol, vanille, hout, iets van chocolade. Zuurtje op de nasmaak, verder bitter en licht zoet. Zacht en vol.

Pachnie karmelem, rodzynkami i ciut kawą. W smaku przerażająco pusto, mało typowo quadowych akcentów, trochę fig, daktyli, kawa w aftertaste. Ogólnie jest pusto. I słabo.

Préaris Gerstewijn
330 ml. bottle split @ Beerlovers Bar. Purchased @ Bruges Beer Festival 2017. Dark orange amber red with little bubbles. Nose is hugely thick & sweet in a very BE fashion with big cuberdon notes, sugar, sweet, candy, excessively sweet. Taste is massive almost strange hark back to DE fashion with big fish guts note combined with cuberdons massive very Belgian sweetness, oily caramel, candy, fish guts profile, near umami, BE notes, almost cloying, oily. Thick sugar, caramel. Puzzling beers that goes BE sweat for broke, extreme sugar, fermented to almost vague DE fish guts notes in a non-lager malt thick brew. It does many things other than fitting into the standard USA styled barley wine category. Puzzling beer, not entirely to personal preference but an interesting one & pretty decent one.

Préaris Belgian Bio Hop Ale
Drank most of a 330 ml. on the train post Bruges Beer Festival 2017. Very hazy amber orange, collapsing white head. Nose is some peach yoghurt, bit stale, dough, white bread. Taste is dough, taste is better than the smell, carbonation is too high, body is lots of dough, sugar, white bread, faint soap, malt profile dominates, getting little hop, malt profile reminded me a bit of their ’t Brugs Beertje beer. Okay.

Préaris Framboise
330 ml. bottle split with kraddel @ train post-Bruges Beer Festival 2017. BBF 05.01.2018. Looks nice dark red pink raspberry, vaguely pink head. Nose is sadly heavily metallic, low sugar, raspberry feels sugary & fake. Body ruins all taste, extremely over-carbonated. Taste is stale yeast upfront, metallic, artificial bitter, fruit is barely there, washing powder, whatever raspberry is there feels fake. Bit of a waste of fruit really. Sorry, I wanted to like but this is a miss & I don’t see many beer geeks liking, maybe the more casual beer drinker can appreciate this, fruit doesn’t feel real, carbonation makes it feel empty, it is metallic. Not sure what this was meant to be, real fruit sweet beer?

20170204 33 cl bottle at BAB. A dark yellow, cloudy beer with a good white head. Aroma is mainly grapefruit like hopbitter. Some sweetness in the taste, which is in good combination with the fruit hops. Grapefruit, marmelade, peach, melon. The aftertast is bitterdry with still some sweetness. Only the dry bitter in the aftertaste is not so nice after a certain time.

Préaris Gerstewijn
New addition to Andy Dewilde’s Préaris range, at BBF. Thick and very creamy, dense, pale yellowish beige head, dark bronze colour with warm burgundy hue, hazy. Aroma of caramel sauce, honey, raisins, candied fig, white port, orange peel, white rum, marmelade, white pepper, wet leather. Sweet onset of dried banana and fig, slight sourish redcurrant-like accent and even a very light beefy umami touch, medium carbo, full and smooth, ’fluffy’ mouthfeel though perhaps a tad less vinous than one would expect from the style, thick toffeeish malt sweetness with a soft, subtle toasted accent, lingering candied banana and honey sweetness but balanced in the end by a dash of spicy hops and warming, brandy-like but non-astringent alcohol. English style barleywine indeed but still with certain Belgian (quad-like) traits, which however do not disturb me here; perhaps a little bit overcarbonated, but otherwise a delicious beer, technically in perfect condition, rich and warming. Recommended, hopefully this will soon be a part of the more widely available Préaris range.

Dark mahogany pour, medium beige head. Aroma is alot of dark fruit, some bitter coffee beans, with some dry cereals. Mouth feel is crisp, and clear, and the carb is spot on. The finish is dry, and malty, with more fruity esters with some light coffee. I wouldn’t have guessed the two would go well together, but who knew.... Quad and coffee. Tasty!

Thick creamy beige head stayed on a very dark brown still body. Dark sweet coffee, plum , dark fruit & caramel aromas, slightly boozy. Smells fantastic! Smooth, thick & creamy to the fore with a sharper tingly back. On the front it’s quite sweet with coffee, dark sugar & malt this slowly dissipates over the tongue to light fruity tastes with a tang & slightly bitter coffee & aniseed aft.

Very confusing beer. My bottle says 8.5%. Wasn’t sure if this was an imperial stout or a coffee porter. It’s a dark dark red mostly clear pour with a big frothy off white head. Very sweet nose of booze, yeast, chocolate, leather, nuts. Translates into more of the same. Lost of warming alcohol. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Some pepper heat along with the carbonation. Aging would be interesting, but it’s pretty much ready to drink right now. I
