Sensorial reviews of the beers I tried at home, which by no means I intend for them to be treated as professional. They are more like beer tasting and english writing exercises.





Schneider Weisse | TAP 2 - Mein Kristall

Schneider Weisse | TAP 2 - Mein Kristall

Perfect for special occasions: “Mein Kristall” - the prickly crystal “Weissbier” free of yeast, the ideal choice for a stimulating aperitif, served in a fine tall glass. With its delicate carbonation it’s a truly inspiring drink for getting attuned to a reception. It also goes astonishingly well with fish. But even in a classic wheat beer glass its never out of place.



Salvador Brewing Co. | Cookie de Chocolate

Salvador Brewing Co. | Cookie de Chocolate

A cup of coffee with a chocolate cookie? The harmony between these two flavors can be perceived in each sip of Cookie de Chocolate Pastry Stout. For the brewing of this recipe, coffee, cacao, vanilla and hazelnut were used to achieve the characteristic cookie aroma. A dessert that, certainly, replaces with mastery the inspiration combo: coffee and cookie.


Devaneio do Velhaco | O Começo do Descontrole #2

Devaneio do Velhaco | O Começo do Descontrole #2

The start of our wood barrel mixed-fermentation project. And when I say that’s the start, I mean it: the primary fermentation is done 100% in the wood barrel. Refreshment balance, light acidity and aromas that are coming from our Brettanomyces. The version #2 of this beer went through a Port Wine barrel. The version #1 went through a turfed whisky barrel.



Japas Cervejaria | Kawaii

Japas Cervejaria | Kawaii

It’s impossible to think in Japan without reminding of so many “cute” characters from mangas and animes. And there, all this cuteness has a name: Kawaii. Besides that, it’s a culture that became a lifestyle with so many adepts around the world and that now became inspiration to our beer. It also means something innocent, pure, but not exclusively sweet, that’s why we created a Smoothie NE IPA, with a light bitterness, tasty, velvety and with a touch of blackberry and raspberry.
