Last Sunday, brewery Smiske did their annual Festivity Happening again.
The BBB was present, and captured things.
One day of beery happiness from 3pm till 10pm.
Note that bry. Smiske exists for 7 years alread.
In Mater this means, because before it was called bry. De Regenboog and was located in Assebroek, close to Bruges.
Highly interesting: A novelty could be tasted!
A dark 9 vol% beer with the name Smiske Vario 2016.
That Sunday only available from tap.
This picture shows a "tapped" Smiske Vario 2016.
That full bottle was taken out of the fridge for optimal picture purposes.
I didn't sample the bottled edition, just because Bruges' beer pub 't Brugs Beertje has it already on offer !
That'll be tasted in Bruges SOON !
From tap, it has become a mighty creamy sensation.
Look at that velvety smooth'n soft head.
It gives - as such - that wonderful creamy mouth feeling.
This 9 vol% beer is made with four kinds of grain, and three kinds of hops.
Hops that are all cultivated inside Belgium, hence the logo on the label.
One of the hop variants is an American one, i.e. Cascade. But that one is also cultivated inside Belgium (Poperinge) to be precise.
Dark caramel burnt malts and some chocolate malts to make it deliciously caramelly/chocolaty flavored.
Quite an earthy hoppy boost there, and a very long lasting hoppy finish. Sensational for sure.
Johan, what a great beer you made.
From the first sip till the last drop a great beery treat -- all the way.
Note that this beer is only made once!
But no worries, next year, there will be another unique brew available. That'll be the Smiske Vario 2017.
A beer made according the mood of the brewmaster !
Wow, if that isn't some great idea and concept.
This means that - every year - we can savor something completely different, rare, and unique from bry. Smiske.
Ofcourse, we tried more Smiske excitements!
For example that amazing 12 vol% Smiske Kriek, made with Schaerbeekse Krieken!
And what about that 11 vol% Smikse Winter.
DAMN LOVELY STUFF !! BLOODY SENSATIONAL!!
I took more pictures of the happening and made a small pictorial impression.
