Proef Flemish Primative Wild Ale (Demon Fish)

Huge pure white, fluffy head that is not going away. Clumpy thick lacing.

Hazy, golden straw in color.

Funky, malty aroma. Maybe a touch of sweet honey in the end. Not unpleasant but funky.

Low carbonation. Funkiness carries over to the flavor. A bit sour. Barnyard or horseblanket is the best description I can come up with. If this is what a belgian pale is supposed to taste like count me out. Almost a rotten taste. I'm pouring this out.

Overall impression is that this beer is not for me. Aroma is acceptable but the flavor is just nasty to me.

I have a bottle of Spoonwhacker that's been aging. I think it's a 2006. Now you have me worried, haha.

But no, that's not what your typical belgian pale should taste like. To style would be fermented with a Saccharomyces yeast rather than spontaneous, which is what the primitive wild ale is.

Go pick up an Orval and see if you like that. It has a regular fermentation and then is spiked with Brettanomyces. Perfect combination, imo.
