First tasting impressions #26: Faux Bruin

November 3, 2012

Initial proper sample. Almost black with the darkest ruby red tinted hue on the edges, ample head and carbonation. Soft, with alcohol warmth, very balanced, very “Belgian” a la mode Moinette Bruin or Chimay Blue – right up there to my estimation. I find it easier to cock up a 3.8 per cent abv bitter than any Belgian style beer – such an easy beer style to brew! The small amount of black malt and dark sugar in the recipe seems to keep the yeast character – spiciness – in check.

Will do the final tasting review at Christmas when the beer will have had more than four months in the bottle.
