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.

Alenda Weisse + MF Cervejas Artesanais | Früchte Weisse

Alenda Weisse + MF Cervejas Artesanais | Früchte Weisse

Alenda Früchte Weisse was born from the union of Taberna MF and Alenda Weisse. We have something in common, which is bringing not just a beer, but an experience. It’s manufacturing process followed the same traditional methods used in Baviera’s beers, including the decoction process and open tanks fermentation (Dekoktionsverfahren und Gärung im offener Bottich). During the many production phases, three different yeasts were used: Hefeweizen, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus which was extracted naturally from the malt, besides that we used a concentrated cherry juice which was manufactured at our brewery. It’s a traditionally contemporary beer and only should be consumed by open minded people which are open to new gustatory challenges, otherwise we do not advise to open this bottle.







Seasons Craft Brewery | Senssons!

Seasons Craft Brewery | Senssons!

Hello. Is this from Celsons? No, err… is this from the Fensons Brewery”? WRRRONG!!! Our series of mind-boggling saisons is complete. Once again awarding the gramatical creativity of our people and our partners, we present Senssons, our third saison. A fruity, hoppy and turbinated beer with the citric power of grapefruit zest added on the maturation. So aromatic and striking that you’ll never forget how to spell our name in a wrong way.



Zapata Cervejaria Rural | Oursin Tasmania

Zapata Cervejaria Rural | Oursin Tasmania

Oursin Tasmania is the second beer of the “Croquis” series (“draft” in french). This series is a homage to experimentations and to the unusual. Tasmania is the scenary of this Croquis, whose originality is in the utilization of the Ella hop joined with an acidification process. Oursin is one of the cientific names of the Tasmanian Devil, mammal species that is native of that region, which meets other little bacteria devils, lactobacillus, creating a killer “Australian Sour Ale”!


Cervejaria Hocus Pocus | Day Tripper

Cervejaria Hocus Pocus | Day Tripper

Day Tripper is a NE IPA with the experimental hop HBC 472. This hop, at first, has a similar profile with other hops that are already well known in IPAs, with citric shades of grapefruit and lemon zest which, by itself, would make a beautiful and fresh beer, ideal to be tasted in sunny days. However, when used in almost irresponsibly big amounts, the beer starts to develop a fruity and lightly woody character, which looks like as if we put a dense coconut liquor for some months in Bourbon Whisky barrels.
