*Note: I’ve been sick since before leaving Copenhagen. Started feeling sick the day before my flight back and have been in bed ever since. Sorry for the absence but not like anyone reading this blog cares for my well being. Thanks for the patience. I have some content coming up but have a lot of work at my day job to do to play catch up so beer is on the back burner*

De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva 2008

Technically, this beer does not exist!!!!!!! I had it while in Belgium but I’m not allowed to add it to RateBeer even though there is an entry on BeerAdvocate and Untappd. I was disappointed about not being able to review it. Took some notes anyway which were typed out on my phone:

Hazey and slightly amber. Brown

2 finger head, faded fast

Aroma – Tart. Lactic acid. Slightly acetic. Cherries

Taste – Some mango. Lots of oak and Granny Smith apple. Red grape skins. Sweet caramel and dark fruits. Insanely complexly

4.2/5

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting any tartness but I’m a beer noob so my expectations are generally wrong. It was still nice to try this. So, now I’ve had Reserva ’05, ’08 and ’10. 2000 is a “white whale” so no point in seeking that out.
