EB Quintessence Trip April 16-19. Life is indeed Belgian. Curry/walnut-notes are very dominant, almost vulgar, but I must confess I still love it. Mind blowing now but will be even better and definitely more elegant with some age.

18/IV/22 - 75cl bottle @ Cantillon Quintessence (Brussels), BB: n/a (2022-359)

Paired with amazing +24 months old Comté.
Clear blond beer, small to almost no head, a little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very musty, damp cellar, mouldy earthy impression, nutty, lovely! MF: ok carbon, medium body .Taste: citrus notes, earthy, oxidized, some orange peel, grapefruit, a gentle acidity, lovely complexity. Aftertaste: more acidic in the throat, lots of citrus, oxidized, clean acidity, lemon notes, a bitter touch in the finish. Lovely beer, great cheese pairing!

Lovely funk, massive walnuts and oxidized Vin Jaune. Sour and woody, but less dry then some Vin Jaune I’ve head, though it’s still very dry. Over medium sour. Great stuff, though maybe slightly on the sour side right now.

Bottle, served from a decanter at Bon Bon. Clear dark yellow pour. Simply amazing. Fantastic vinous and apricot notes give way to lemon zest, oak, and barnyard backbeats. Perfect body and mouthfeel.

19’ bottle. Pours a hazy golden with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is grape skin, barnyard, oak, citrus. Thin body, sweet grape, oak, funk, nice tartness, really enjoyed this.

14/VIII/21 - 75cl bottle, shared @ Cantillon brewery (Brussels), BB: n/a, bottled: 10/VI/20 (2021-794) Thanks to all for sharing today’s beers!

Rather cloudy orange beer, small creamy white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very oxidized, lots of celery (!), funky, spicy, bit weird. Not very nice… MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: nice, funky, very herbal, spicy, lemony notes, very funky and bretty, little dirty. Aftertaste: very vegetal, soup, sweet touch, bit of a medicinal bitterness. This very under par from what we're used to...

Bottle shared at the brewery. Lots of vin jaune, good oxidization but also nice lambic and funk. Quite woody. Really good.
