Braustelle Wilde Wutz
0.33 l bottle from ’Schneider’s Getränkemarkt’ (Kölle), 2014 vintage at 7.5% abv, cellared for almost two years. Gusher! Murky, dark brown to black with a medium large, fluffy, quickly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-sourish, very funky and slightly smoky aroma of lots of brett funk, dark fruits, oak, a bit of chocolate and some peat. Slightly sweetish, moderately sour, very funky, slightly smoky and a bit roasty taste of oak, dark fruits, chocolate, red grapes and some peat, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, woody-dry, a bit spicy, a little roasty and slightly peaty finish. Thin to medium body, slightly astringent and rather effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A bit all over the place, and even though it’s a Sour Ale I’d say it’s fair to call this unintendedly infected (what else?). Still quite enjoyable though, very interesting recipe as well.

Braustelle Fahrt Ins Grüne
2015 vintage 75cl bottles sampled on 2 occasions: post What’s Brewing kindly shared by impuritylaw, again tasted (unfairly) against Cuvée De [email protected] Live 2017, merci Michael. - Makes a summery citric lemonade with a splash of vinegar and lime out of a lambiek blend (probably Girardin, could be Lindemans?). Emmer and Einkorn linger as thinned out corpses in the background. Drinkable, with a mild woody touch (cherry branches?) and watery pockets. Probably a bigger hit with US-schooled "sourheads" - this has nothing on De Ranke’s deep layers of grapefruit funk and rainy courtyard Cuvée with which it just might share a lambiek pedigree (10-30% overlap?).

Braustelle Czarina
0.33 l bottle from ’CraftBeer-Dealer.com’ as ’Braustelle Czarina’, best before February 2017. Black with a medium large, relatively fluffy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish, moderately roasty, quite smoky, slightly fruity and a little sourish aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, dark ripe fruits, peat, iodine and hints of oak. Quite sweet, moderately roasty-malty, smoky, slightly fruity and a bit sourish taste of dark chocolate, coffee, lots of peat, iodine, dark ripe fruits and oak, followed by a long, moderately roasty-bitter, peaty and woody-dry, almost vinous finish. Medium body, smooth but quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very tasty and well-balanced Imperial Stout with a decent amount of peat and wood. Mouthfeel lacks a bit, but the tastes makes definitely up for it.

Heftiges Zeug. Wenn man schnell genug hinschnuppert, bevor einen die Lederhose über die Nase gezogen wird, kann man sich an einen wohligen Aprikosenmusduft erfreuen.Wild und very funky. Die neblig ockergelbe Brühe mit der üppigen Beschäumung ist optisch ein richtiger Hingucker. Perfekt. Der Trunk dann kräftig Gueuzeaffin. BOON BLACK LABEL läßt grüßen. Nur viel schartkantig und angriffslustiger. Azetonalarm und Citusinferno. Buttriger Sourtwister und Alkosweetspicefatman. Halleluja!!! BRAUSTELLE RULES!! AGAIN!!!! 0,33 Flasche direkt von der Stelle. Ca.3€.

Braustelle Czarina
Tap (Braustelle, Cologne)
Woody sourish aroma, so smooth, a touch nuttey. No alc. in the mouth. Classic aged imperial stout taste - very rich roast, but beautifully mellowed, some whisky wood too. Delicious finish, really woody. Really nice dark roasty toasty finish too, it’s not forgotten that it’s a stout. Underrate?

Braustelle White Cardigan - W(hiskey)
330ml bottle (Braustelle, Cologne) as "Braustelle White Cardigan ’W’"
Hazy to cloudy orange, small head. Sweet sticky aroma, prunes, but some sharpness too. Crazy sweet taste fruity, but also sour. Winey fruity finish. Barrel ruined, or just not a great beer to start with? At least it didn’t throb with bourbon and associated booze, so probably using dry barrels.

Great Stuff. Rauchig torfige Aromen deuten auf ein ISLAYfassgelagertes IS hin. Fett. Im Mund nicht minder üppig. Rauch, Schokosweetness und säuerliche Röstpower lassen keinen IShead traurig zurück. Wowww. Das Finale ist lang, hopfenbitter und rotbeerig galant. Weltklasse!!! Again !!! Braustelle RULES ✨ !!! 0,33L Flasche direkt von dort...

Braustelle White Cardigan - Brandy
0.33 l bottle from ’Hopfenrausch’ as ’Braustelle White Cardigan B’, best before December 2018. Clear, dark reddish amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma of caramel, honey, lots of vanilla and ripe apples. Rather sweet and malty taste of caramel, honey, vanilla, ripe apples and a touch of oak, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, moderately warming-alcoholic and slightly woody-dry finish. Medium to full body, almost oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Not very quaffable, lacks carbonation, barrel is a bit too dominant. I liked the whisky version better as it was better balanced and easier to drink. Still nice though!

Sweetish, slightly fruity and moderately peaty aroma of pear, honey and whiskey. Rather sweet, malty, minimally sourish, slightly fruity and a bit peaty taste of honey, pear, orange jam and whiskey, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, a little tart, slightly woody finish in which the peat becomes dominant. Medium to full body, slightly creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very tasty, a bit unround maybe, but definitely an interesting experiment.

Braustelle Auf ein Kölsch, Trinker!
Cheers Roman! So glad I lucked into trying your beer. Bottle pours with a hazy amber colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up tart notes, strawberry, berry and a dash of Brett. The taste delivers fresh crisp strawberry and raspberry rolling into tart notes and a bit of Brett. This is a solid balanced refreshing beer with bright fresh berry notes. Awesome.

Zwischen allen Stühlen und so gar nicht bockbiertypisch. Super blutorangig und daraus resultierend mit einem leichten Sour Ale Twist ausgestattet. Zusätzlich, aufgrund seiner fruchtigen Hoppyness, aber auch Strong Pale Ale lastig. Wein und Malzansätze sind ebenfalls vorhanden. Kantig und unrund. 0,2/2,80€. Fass. BRAUSTELLE Köln.

Braustelle Muddy Waters
Im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes eine Muddy Optik, wie der Schlamm am Ufer des Mississippis. In der Nase viel erdiger Hopfen. Beim Trunk gesellen sich schnell die kleinen Tropenjungs hinzu. Lecker und anscheinend, aufgrund von Roggenmalz, ein IPA wie ein Abendbrot. Prickelnd frisch und schön vermalzt ist es ebenfalls. Klasse. 0,2/2,80€ von Hahn, direkt in der BRAUSTELLE Köln.

Braustelle Wilde Wutz
Tap (Braustelle, Cologne)
Rubbery aroma. Sharp lemony sourness too, almost tear-inducing, hint vinegary. Medium palate, but obviously sharp, carbonation. Taste similarto aroma, more of the rubber, woodier, touch of old school desks, acidity even more balsamic. No sign of any alcohol. Drinkability great. Don’t consider the above strange words as negative - there was enjoyment at every stage.

Tap (Braustelle, Cologne) (6+:4:6+:4:13=3.3++)
Basically black, a small beige head. Woh, sweet salty sour spicy sweaty smoked aroma. Funky, but nice. Rubbery burnt taste. Smooth palate carbonation soft. Fullish. Pleasant tingle on the tongue both from hops and smokiness. Covers 6.8% under the craziness. Enjoyed.

Braustelle Helios Tripelbock
0.33 l bottle from ’CraftBeer-Dealer.com’, best before February 2017. Slight gusher! Hazy, golden amber with a large, foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sourish-fruity, quite funky aroma of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, sweat and urine. Sweetish-malty, a bit sourish, slightly funky and a bit fruity taste of caramel, honey, white grapes, gooseberry, lemon and some urine, followed by a rather long, medium grassy-bitter, moderately tart finish. Medium to full body, a bit astringent, slightly creamy and quite effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Quite tasty actually, expected the worst after the slight gusher and the sourish-funky aroma. Typical Braustelle stuff with an infection, but it’s not bad at all!
