An airtight package of extremes, peculiar rust-hued Belgian farmhouse ale brings musty fruit dankness to pungent mushroom-y earthiness with no odd offensiveness. As flooded basement waft subsides, sour chamomile tea complements honeyed banana sweetness and corky peach-apricot-grape esters for tartly rewarding obscurity.
Brewed with complimentary (instead of dominant) fig juice, vinous viscous-coppered Belgian retains fluffy white head, clumped yeast sediment, and sharp cider tartness. Pungent grapefruit-dried tangerine-peach tang compels sulky sour grape acidity and cork-y herbal pinch to soak up honeyed malt sweetness. A bit too sudsy as an after dinner drink.
Mild pale-hued foamy-headed Belgian with xrisp barley-wheat toasting, fresh citrus aromatics, and sour yellow-fruited tartness envelop sweet white wine midst. Hop bitterness never overwhelms pleasant daisy-dandelion hints at buttery finish. Soft soda-like fizz gives it crossover appeal for lightweights.
Pale-clouded moderate-bodied white-wined wheat ale checks in with immediate clove-coriander spicing above fluctuant crystal malt assertion. Fizzy dry hop bittering overrides lemony orange-peach tartness. Light and fluffy for Belgian, but brisk quinine water crispness usurps bland finish while half-affirming tertiary tropical fruitiness.
Commemorating hilarious Monty Python movie, dry honeysuckled Brit (with clinging Brussels lace) matches thick caramel sweetness to light floral-hopped citric spicing. Abiding wood-smoked tinge, reminiscent of an India Pale Ale, endures to mildly bitter mineral-grained vegetal finish, but soapy aftertaste lowers vitality.
