Recent Tasting Notes

Scheldebrouwerij Dulle Griet (13/20)
Massive head on pouring that took a while to settle. Murky reddish brown in colour. ’Warm’ flavours on the nose; coca cola, rich malts, a touch of sugar and aniseed. Palate is quite fizzy but this carries the heavy cola and aniseed flavours well. Quiet simple really. Good enough but not enough to make me come back for seconds.

De Cam Oude Lambiek 2000 Vintage (14/20)
Soft feel and very low fizz, perhaps accurately reflecting the 8 years of bottle age. Nose is low impact but the classic characters of sour fruits and vomit persist. Similar characters in the palate; shows good presence and depth, allow clearly this beer is mellowing and the flavours do tail off somewhat. Bitter finish.

Struise Pannepot 2006 Vintage (18/20)
Geez this was good. Amazing combination of spice, lifted floral red wine notes and malt drive. Such a balanced and beautifully constructed drink. Really impressive. Best beer I’ve had in some time.
