new brews from the bloke in the santas hat!
It’s Alight – “A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Funky, fruity, dusty and citrus nose. The flavour continues in the same way with funkiness, citrus finish. A bit astringent in the mouth. Wheat-like finish with the flavours found initially. Pleasant and quaffable with a nice sourish and brett touch.” Ratebeer 76/100- beermerchants.com
Tia Frai – “Huge thick brown head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Pitch black colour. Aroma of nice roasted malty and dark fruity notes. Also vinous, coffee, chocolate. Over the palate came what could appear as a hint of smoke combined with sweet malty notes and solid roasted malt. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick mild alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavour with good counter sweetness. Roasted malty sweet finish with a warming touch.” ’From To’ is the perfect Christmas gift for lazy dudes. Just fill in the From/To card on the front label and put it under the three. ’From To’ is an easy drinkable christmasporter with light malty sweetness and a slight touch of X-mas spices.

Simcoe IPA – ” An almost clear beer of golden color. Wonderful citrusy nose with pineapple, pinecones and resin, as well as a good maltyness. In the mouth too, the hops dominates, but it has enough malty sweetness to give it some balance. Citrus, pinecones, pineapple and resin from the hops. Full-bodied, almost astringent bitter and teeth cleaning. Long hoppy finish. A really pleasant one, at least in smaller quantities.” Ratebeer – 97/100 – beermerchants.com
Not Another Wit – “loudy oak brown with a puffy white head that settles leaving a lacy ring. Nose is wheat, lemon, orange peel and coriander. Medium light with faint biting carb. Taste is orange and grapefruit peel, wheat, coriander and lemon oil. Extra hoppy but still remains true to the style.” Ratebeer – 90/100 – beermerchants.com
Wot another Wit?
Stone/Alesmith/Mikkeller – “A Belgian Tripel style ale – pours a translucent golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of fresh floral, citrus notes, candy sugar, bready pilsner malt, light spicy notes, light alcohol, lemon grass. Flavor of Belgian candy sugar, lemon grass, lots of mixed citrus, spicy, sweet malty notes.” Ratebeer – 90/100 – beermerchants.com
Alesmith as well... wow!
Three Floyds/Mikkeller = Hvegdgooooop – “It’s a beautiful red copper colour and the head is creamy. The aroma is both sweet and hoppy with nice notes of citrus, pine and chewy caramel. The flavour has sweetness and the hops provides notes of pine, resin, citrus, but I also find candy sugar, malt and chewy caramel. The wheat is subdued, but I suppose it could be helping the smoothness in the overall impression.” – Ratebeer – 97/100 – beermerchants.com
