Recent Tasting Notes

Schneider & Brooklyn Hopfen-weisse
Interesting collaboration for an interesting result. Pours hazy golden orange with a huge off white head, certainly darker than most hefes. Nose has masses of citrus with undertones of clove, banana & hop spice. Palate translates well, a hint of malt sweetness, not so much in the traditional hefe way, more US - derived from caramel or munich malts maybe. Citrus notes dominate palate. Finishes with medium floral hop bitterness and trademark hefe spicy phenolics. Wow! This is a cracking beer, something I’d love to see more of. Do yourself a favour and get some while its around.

Emersons JP Belgian Ale 2009
Great looking beer, not unlike other emersons beer. Quite dark for the style, almost porter/stout like. Dark, dark brown body with nice, creamy tan head. Nose has big yeast spice notes with alcohol evident but funnily enough disguised by the aniseed notes. Palate has dark malt, chocolate bordering on coffee notes. Some dark figgy fruit notes thrown in aswell. Finish has big spice notes, aniseed obviously most dominant. Overall a great beer,it’s near impossible to find non Belgians of this style with as much complexity. Star anise adds alot, without dominating too much. Emersons can do no wrong, seriously a world class brewery!

Eisenbahn Lust
I've been sitting on this bottle for a while & decided to open it with non-beer drinking friends. Pours hazy golden orange with a fizzy head that dissapears. Nose has confectionary fruit: citrus with a bit of strawberry. Palate is medium bodied with high carbonation. There is some sweetness but carbo dries it up quite well. Finishes with a good hit of alcohol and spice, whether yeast or hop driven I’m not sure. Overall a great beer. You can certainly see the base (belg tripel) coming through. Probably pulls it off better than Deus Brut de Flanders, the only other I’ve had of this style. Was a bit too sweet, whereas this was spot on. Would definately have again.
