Appearance - Brilliant Burnt Orange Color. Adequate carbonation with a a that disapated rather quickly to just a few bubbles lacing the glass.

Smell - This beer had a HUGE hop bouquet. The simcoe in this beer really stand old. The amaril provides a nice floral essence that lends well to the Simcoe buzsch bang. I get spicey,cCitrusy, floral....woah boy. Olfactory hop hues.

Taste - Clean, Crisp, and dry. This is an amazingly bitter beer, with a generous, yet subtle malt back bone to help carry the weight of the hops. This beer is very well balanced.

Mouthfeel - clean & dry. Full bodied taste that left me wanting more.

Drinkability - I really, really enjoyed this beer. You did a great job with this one. I could drink this beer all day


Don't underestimate your ability to brew great beer. If your others are anything like this one, then I'm in for a real treat.

I think I'll try the sour tonight, and then that's going to be it for now. I'm going to let your RIS, and Barleywine age for a few months.

Wow, my beer on youtube! I wasn't expecting that. I am curious why its doing that, maybe something on the inside bottom of the glass creating a nucleation site for the carbonation? I'll definitely have to open a bomber tomorrow to see if the same thing happens.... for research sake of course. Glad you enjoyed the beers despite the odd carbing -another sour beer convert?

Appearance - Nice Golden Color. Very clear, and clean beer Very the bubbly head disintegrated into very tiny bubbles around the fringe of the glass. Bubbles were seemingly coming out of one exclusive spot on the glass. I would later determine that it had something to do with the as the glass fleur de lis etching on the inside of the glass I was drinking form that instigatedall those bubbles.

Smell - Virtually no hop nose . CLean and dry scent to this beer.

Taste - Clean, Crisp, Dry and SOUR. Good on you Landhoney. This is a great tasting sour beer in the classic Belgian style, More horse blanket and cow bell are the only the only thing that this beer needs.

Mouthfeel - clean ,dry and sour. Crisp dry Brett taste, that finished into thin air.

Drinkability -Nice beer my man. This beer would be best enjoyed in an intimate setting where those around you could really...no REALLY appreciate this beer. Well Done.

Sorry the notes are about a month old.

Appearance - Dark like the night, poured a nice head which remained with the beer until the last drop

Smell - Raisins.

Taste -* my notes are illegible* sorry!

Mouthfeel -very smooth, full bodied stout

Drinkability -very quaffable.
Keep up the good work

I had one of these recently. It was really good, but weird too---I swore up and down that a sprig of sage had fallen into the fermenter...

That's exactly right landhoney. The Chimay glass has an etching at the bottom for this specific purpose.

That sour sounds amazing by the way.

Wow, these new posts are a suprise!
Glad to hear the beers were enjoyed. I'd be curious to hear more about the taste(Evan! and Glibb), sage???? These(sour, RIS, barleywine) beers are on my 'rare' list, so I won't be drinking them for a while to ensure they last for a few years.
