Hahahahahaa I knew it!
I got a sour fruit one right after I mentioned one yesterday. Luckily its quite a nice one actually. So here we have The tropic folk from Dugges brewery standing at 3.5%. It is super low carbonation, sharp, lightly sweet, tart, fruity, short and pleasantly dry. A very easy to drink beer and doesnt outstay its welcome. The aroma is so fruity, a chunk of pineapple and peach, with citrus notes. Taste is watery fruit, a balanced mix of tropical tart fruits, with a touch of lemon at the end. A very thin texture that finishes clean and dry. Would not have a problem having another one these in the future, but by no means am I going to search it out, lets see if we clash again into Tropic folk.
Plus I think I like this more than most sour beers as it reminds me of the pineapple juice I make, when I dont add a wedge of honey at least.
Tonight we have Seef. Seriously that is all was on the site I bought it from and on the invoice haha. But it is brought to us from Antwerpse Brewery standing at 6.5%
I will admit that I have never had a bottle with intructions before. Had to pour two thirds of the glass, swirl the bottle somewhat and then finish pouring the last third. It went a lovely clear blonde to a murky hay blonde. Hope you like yeasty hay like drinks as that is what you get with this. With added sourness and a little lemony citrus like taste. A somewhat watery taste and finish as well. Smooth and clean finish too. The aroma is yeasty bread making, with sour notes. Guess the word floral should be in this post as well.
This is the style of drink where you take a big glup only to realise that you have hardly made a dent in it, it just wont go away. You can kind of guess that this isnt my kind of drink. If you have had a Hoegaarden then you have had this.
Here we have Silver top from Old dairy brewery, a cream stout standing at 4.5%. Luckily I picked this one now as it is a bottle conditioned beer, that goes out of date on the 17th… at least that means its had a good fermenting period.
When I first opened the bottle I got a wiff of chocolate then a smack of liquorice, then the chocolate never really came back. Even in the taste there was no chocolate to speak of. Some pleasant liquorice and the coffee taste is nice enough, though thats really all there is to this one. Its not oily or heavy at all in texture, so it is very easy to drink but only leaves you with a slight bitterness that you want to get rid of by drinking again.
I’m having trouble selling this one to you guys haha. The bottle even mentions fruity notes in the aroma, really? Give me a second. *shoves nose into glass* It has the slightest of slightest berry notes
