Just a taste...but I had to make note. This goes into the WWTT file (What Were They Thinking). Upfront I should confess to not being a big hops fan, but the effrontery of the rye negates any nuances. I'm not big on slamming a beer but I'm leaving this 'message in a bottle' so I don't ever get caught up in the mystery of the name of this brew again. Might be rye-ght for some...but I'm not that guy.
On tap. This time it's winter's end & this still hits the spot. Mind you, it makes me wish for about +40F outside, but it'sice to remember what life can be. I would say "sunshine in a glass" but this is not a commercial. Get real. I'm in a bar & wishing it was in FL between here & mt apartment, but it ain't...snap out of it.
On tap. Very nice stuff. Shows how a well behaved member of the hop family of brews can please and I am very pleased. Wonderful balance. Smells hoppier than it tastes. Good cold. Doesn't look like I'll get try it at room temp. At 6.5% this should be monitored carefully as it very desceptive & delish.
From bottle. Having had the Coffee version from this outfit before I wasn't expecting much. I guess I'm spoiled by the likes of Goose Island Bourbon County or Brooklyn Black Ops. The texture is a bit watery & the coffee flavor tastes a bit forced. I wouldn't flush it from the bomb shelter stores, but I wouls question why space was wasted with this particular brew when space is at a premium.
From bottle. I'm not exactly sure this is what was in the bottle because the label was missing but according to the cap it was from Cazeau & since I've been having a lot of winter/holiday brews lately the spices led me to conclude this was it. I was hoping for a bit more influence from the yeast, that which makes me pay so much attention to all things Belgian. I enjoyed enough to leave the door open to other Brasserie de Cazeau beers.
On tap. Where have you been all my life? From this point on I'll be using this brew as a yardstick. Unfortunately I foresee few matching up. Super stuff. Don't listen to me. Just taste it & then find as much of it as you can & figure out how to store it as I think it's only a flash in the pan. God speed.
On tap. Really nice stuff. flavorful but nothing was trying too hard for attention. Like the old expression "...seen but not heard" the elements here were there, but not all shouty. A class act. That being said it's not the only beer I'd like to have for a session. Great in a mix but not in the singular.
FRom bottle. Way out front on the grapefruit side of the hops. Citra? I don'tknow ehough to opine but I suspect. As one who doesn't appreciate too much hoppiness this is pleasant. Tame, even, until it warms up. The 6% elevates it beyond a session quaff, but It's good for a few as long as they stay cold!
From bottle. May be past due but interesting nontheless. A bit flat but since the label says "the Hoppiest beer of Belgium" I wonder. I'm a big Belgian fan & shy away from hopppy but if this is the top end...I'm moving to Belgium. On the spicy side for the genre. Not bad..not that good, but as I said this bottle may be past prime.
