BROOKLYN CUVEE LE BOITE

Elegantly contoured moderate-bodied Belgian cuvee delivers marvelous French-wined grape esters to creamy vanilla-sweetened banana daiquiri whir and wildflower-honeyed rum spicing. Buttery Chardonnay warmth lingers beside crystalline lemon-curried saffron and kaffir lime riffs. French Pyronees espelette peppers softly embitter herbal hop slot.

(HUYGHE) BIERE DU CORSAIRE

Bleak sour yogurt aroma never negatively affects creamy butterscotch palate and clove-peppered elegance informing fetching yeast-addled sweetness of strong pale ale (not far removed from French cuvee wine style). Well carbonated champagne flow catches attention, but vague berry-apple fruitiness and muted white wine finish dim overall prospect.

SOUTHAMPTON CUVEE DES FLEURS

Dazzling butterscotch-hazed, dry-bodied, Saison-styled ale with ‘edible flowers’ increasing champagne-fizzed honeyed yeast affirmation and vanilla wafer-clad backdrop. Floral lavender-jasmine-rosebud-tulip stead augments ample clove-chamomile-peppermint seasoning rewarding ripe pineapple-apricot-mango-marmalade medley as grass-hay-horsehide waft simmers appreciable vinegar souring. Perfectly balanced flavor exchange allows endless fruity illusions (white peach, tangerine, citron, banana) to arise. Compares favorably to similarly ‘flowered’ gruit beers.

(ANDELOT) CUVEE MYSTIQUE

Unexpectedly frothy sienna-hued amber-highlighted ‘strong dark’ Belgian ale cascades to fleshy head, bringing creamy milk stout peculiarities such as decorative cocoa-chocolate sweetness and roasted nuttiness to loudly resonating raisin thicket. As glass empties, inconstant web-like lace forms and earthy astringency approaches.
