This is very hard to write about. It is disappearing to quickly. So while I can, this is Benno from Stift brewery standing at 6.9%. Aroma of traps, trappistness that is, malty, yeast but not bread like, burnt sugar, alcohol and off hay. Taste is very malty, sweet bread and light caramel. The 6.9% is not hidden in any way, its a nice smack of strength while drinking. The carbonation is just right and leaves you with a fizz during the aftertaste.
A beer to put hair on your chest and feel powerful. (Plus I’m sure I ordered this one as it is one letter off from being called Tenno, aka I am Warframe fanboy)
Ha just poured the last of it into the glass and noticed lumps. Hmmmm its bottle conditioned/fermented, dam you brain not reading the label properly 🙂
This is gonna be hard.
This lil beauty is Dulle Teve (Mad bitch) from De dolle brewery standing at 10%. Refering to the start of this post, this will be hard because it is stupidly nice. It has a lot going for it, it gets many things just right. Strong, not too heavy, pleasant carbonation, inticing aroma, an array of flavours, yet balanced, silly name and it leaves you feeling satified. Also said it was hard because I’m having trouble describing it. Just want to drink it haha.
The aroma has fruit, but not berry or raisin like, more apple. A smiggen of citrus. Theres something else too, like a honey yeastiness. Meanwhile the taste is sweet, ever so slightly sour, sweet apple, yeasty and the alcohol is hidden very well. Pleasant texture, not super smooth, just enough carbonation. With a lingering finish, bittersweet with even some spice. (Even got a flatmate involved for this one)
Big yet mellow. Complex yet simple to enjoy. And a joy to talk/write about. A very very good beer.
(Now I have learnt that it can be kept for years without it changing too much, and then its starts to get a little bit sweeter. So really would like to buy two more, have one next year then another even later.)
Now im going to have trouble with this one. I ordered it as even the descrption on the site was all in another language, Bavarian it seems. Here goes nothing. Tonight we have Leo Weisse from Maxlrainer brewery standing at 5%.
The second I took of the cap my brain pushed my face away from the bottle and went ‘Thats a wheat beer!’ took me by surprise. But the aroma is quite refreshing and this is a strange thing to say as the main aroma is yeast, I find the aroma to have a lot of depth. I didnt get bored of the smell the whole time drinking it. While the taste is borderline like every wheat beer that I have had before, Im still finding it remarkable addictive and am enjoying it. It has a little more carbonation than the previous two beers, not its not intrusive of the taste and still glides down easily enough. Will mention that the aftertaste is somewhat…. perfumey, it is quite strong and stays with you for quite a long time. Which I really liked but maybe not to everyones tastes.
Quite a pleasant lil beer tonight. Certainly a different beer from what I normally find myself consuming. Especially while watching Cry’s Parasite Eve stream.
My first blonde beer for quite a long time. Here goes nothing
Todays mystery third bottle is Luppoo standing at 6.5%. The aroma is what I expected from past blonder beer experiences, hoppy citrus with a slight bitter note. Taste wise hoppy citrus with a bitter note…
Doesn’t excite me much, it’s nothing bad, just not too my tastes. Main saving grace is the balanced citrus while drinking, smack of bitter the second the glass leaves your lips and then actually a nice aftertaste. It grew on me better than most blonde beers and seems to be going down much easier than I realised.
