Nose very sweet offering of fine hops in the nose. The palate is warm and silky and offers a bitter pungent which is very similar to that of a beer of low fermentation commonplace. Apart from this little bitterness that is not really pleasant but may interest some of its length on the palate, it lacks a little flavor in post-taste.

Drank on the terrace of the 'Belle Vue' on the sea front in St Idesbald, the Belgian coast.

Recommended by the barman.

Almost clear, it was a straw blonde golden colour with a good white head, I like to think I poured it well.

The aroma, taste and mouthfeel all came across as fairly sour, strong flavours of grapefruit and lemons, not an unpleasant experience at all. This beer was more than just drinkable, it was enjoyable.

This little bastard was poured from a green, 750ml bottle. Unable to find any bottling date, though the label was a bit disheveled. Bottle was capped and also corked; easily opened. Into the goblet, Zinnebir is a deep golden, apricot hued brew. Has a touch of haze within. There's a plentiful procession of carbo rising up, as some particulate heads in the opposite direction, seeking refuge at the bottom of the gob. A hard pour produces a mammoth, healthy head, an off-white dollop of meringue which slowly ebbs while leaving a lovely trace o' lace in the glass. Nose is not fully forthcoming, but gives off some bready touches along with a hint of ginger and some flowery action. Body was a smidge south of medium, with a light, airy, bubbly feel on the tongue.

Taste is lightly crackery, with some mild fruitiness also acting up. Some mild apple, and a lick of pear come out to play. A miniscule touch of a peppery character comes out, with some flowery hops laying down some bitter background notes in a very dry finish.

Overall? A somewhat better than average bier, but nothing to lose sleep for if you're trying to find it.

Zum Wohl!!
