Okay yesterdays pub crawl around durham was epic, think I managed twelve pubs and I’m never playing Fuzzy duck again.
Anyways here we have Floris Chocolat from Huyghe brewery standing at 4.2%.I have had a floris last year, think it was passion fruit, which was basically fruit juice. So when I saw that they did a chocolate flavour I had to find out how bad it was.
At first I was like yeah this smells of chocolate. And nothing else. Then you try it…. the very first second it is in your mouth you brain goes ooooohh chocola-thesmegisthis! It immediately get replaced by this chemically chocolate taste that then leaves you with a watery finish. Really weird. They have somehow made a drink that is like fake old ass chocolate soda.
Purely get this to stitch someone up.
Next we have Finesse from Savour brewery standing at 5%.
The bottle says spices, lemongrass and bubbles. Its has some carbonation I give it that but nothing like champagne bubbles like it claims. Reading more it actually says yeast spices, I dont even know what that means and neither does google. There is a faint faint edge of spices at the back of the throat. Not going to beat around the bush here but the lemongrass is non existant. But does have a nice balance of bitterness and yeastyness. A pleasant aftertaste leaving you wanting more, but still quite clean. For me its just an okay beer. Even if the whole ‘gourmet beer’ tagline grinds me.
