Benji and his hate story with craft. My dog is acting weirdly when am tasting beer, tries to get my attention, to get my glass, jumps on me, on my notepad, starts moaning...am pretty sure he is concerned about my liver 😉 Last night he actually left me a bit alone while I was spending some time with the Ibex of @zoobrew_brasserie_animale from Castelnau le Lez, maybe because he was too busy hiding under the covers as there's still no heating system at home. I think I don't need to present them anymore as the boyz proved with their brews that they are a big part of the French craft beer scene. A milk stout with a malty orchestra. Coffee first on the nose, cereals. Nice roasted aromas, with a milk/chocolate milk in the background and a touch of licorice. I first thought that I was just going on a classic milk stout but the malts revealed themselves on the palate. So we going on the softness, but not creaminess (maybe what I missed a bit) and then to try to name it all, here comes the biscuity, nutty with Pale opening the show, dark toasted/roasted flavors, with a tad of a bitter chocolate belonging to Brown malt kicking up the palate. My beloved special W with raisins notes, dark fruits. Cara special II with coffee bouquet, cocoa. Roasted wheat that brings a roasted coffee and chocolate but the positive point of not adding the bitterness roasted malts bring. Rye bringing the spicy zest tasting so good in a malt accented beer. And oat maybe not bringing all the smoothness I was expecting. And not to forget the milky touch, bringing the softness in the malt world. It's good, tasty, gourmand with a soft alcohol (only 5% ABV) that makes you want to have another one just to make sure you didn't miss anything in the malt story. Cheers guys 🍻
Накопилось тут несколько коротких заметок о французском пиве, дабы не тянуть кота, решил запилить все одним постом. La Bière des îles Virée à Porquerolles Blonde 5% English Pale Ale / Blonde Бисквит, тосты и кажется, бельгийские дрожжи. В меру сластит. В целом, вкусно! La Trop Rosée 4,4% Fruit Beer Сильно газированный ягодный морс. La Trop Blonde 5,5% Blonde Ale Вкусный мягкий блонд, конфеты и белый хлеб во вкусе. Огромное спасибо @nutella_d_abruzza_05 за пиво и бокал. Duyck Jenlain Brown Ale 6% Хороший темный эль! Ровненький, крепкий насыщенный. Пожалуй, самое вкусное французкое пиво, что я пробовал на сегодняшний день. Спасибо, @lizzi_specht очень порадовала! #labièredesîles#blondale#latrop#latropbrewery#latroprosée#latropblonde#duyck#duyckbrewery#jenlainbrownale#brownale#craftbeer
La prima birra che ho portato dalla Provenza, comprata al bellissimo negozio @denaturarerum_arles è una Belgian Ale di @sulauzebrewery aromatizzata con alga Kombu Royal. Sia al naso che in bocca si avvertono delle note inusuali, che onestamente non sono in grado di identificare (non mi capita spesso di assaggiare alghe!!!) In ogni caso, un esperimento interessante, ma che non incontra particolarmente i miei gusti.
