Berliner Weisse??? who was the brewer? it makes a huge difference!

Its a rare style and I can only think of a handful of people that make it but I have to say its my favorite style. Actually I cant tell you how happy I was to see the Breury's Hottenroth on the shelf the other day after what felt like a 2 year wait. Its my hands down favorite, I know its not for everyone but it pares well with a lot of food.

Personally, I have been working my way through Mikkeller's lineup lately. I feel a bit late to the party, but !damn! do they make some good beer.

I really want to get my hands on the Bruery's one. I've heard very good things.

Did you try Black yet? Make sure you're sitting down once you're finished!

I really don't like any of their offerings.

Interesting, malty taste, but pretty expensive.

Unfortunately, I didn't make a note of it. Was toward the end of a long campaign of drinking and I spotted it on the list.

Boulevard's Smokestack Imperial Stout last night - did not care for this at all. Don't know what it was but the beer was so tacky in the mouth that it made me feel like I needed to drink some water after every sip. Flavors were all right, and it was strong, but I wouldn't go anywhere near it again.

Hey B1os, I also tried some beers from the Braufactum collection. First in the store with their tatsing glasses from already open bottles and later at home in a wine glass like yours from the just opened bottle.
what i noticed was, that they had more flavour/aroma in the store. So I am wondering if you did experience the same?
post #4093 of 7362
I haven't had a dégustation in the store. Does beer benefit from decanting? Also, might it be that the setting of the dégustation in the store was more "exciting" and therefore the beer better tasting? Like when you eat/drink something on holiday, bring it back home and it just tastes half as good as you remember...
Still, Braufactum has some great beers. They've got some 0.33l ones for 30€ - this seems a little over-the-top for me though... But probably just because I don't enjoy beer that much.
