The Sinner Series Wrath by Amager Bryghus is a 6.5% ABV Saison/Farmhouse Ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels.

Label:
Danish: Saisoner er in. Saisoner er hippe. Simpelthen. Endnu har ingen givet den helt gode forklaring på, at denne uhyre traditionelle belgiske ølstil pludselig nyder en voldsom opblomstring blandt toneangivede ølnørder. Bortset fra selvfølgelig, at det er en uhyre delikat drik i al sin forfinede enkelhed. Men vi har begået en synd. Vi kunne ikke lade være. Vi har nemlig hældt vores Amager-variant af en Saison på et træfad. Vi håber, at de bløde tanniner fra træet og de noble Pinot Noir-druer giver et saftspændt ekstra twist. Vi ved, at vi måske påkalder os Saison-fundamentalisterne vrede med denne gavtyvestreg. Men ærlig talt, så er vi ligeglade.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det…

English: Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. It’s as simple as that. So far, no one has come up with a good explanation as to why this very traditional Belgian farmhouse style has suddenly skyrocketed in popularity amongst the in- crowd of the beer geek nation. Except, of course, for the fact it’s simply a very delicate drink in all of its refined simplicity. But we’ve committed a sin. We couldn’t resist. We poured our Amager Saison variety into a barrel. We hope the soft tannins from the wood and the noble Pinot Noir grapes add a juicy extra twist. By doing so, we may bring the wrath of Saison fundamentalists upon ourselves. But frankly, we don’t give a damn!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

The second Amager beer I had my eyes on that may have implemented Anime, or not, but still looked awesome and one I wanted to pick up was Wrath. The funny part is that Sweden made a bigger deal about Lust than they did with Wrath even though Wrath has the boob showing with no nipple. Crazy Swedes and their morals. It really does not matter as I am sure you mainly came to read the review or mainly just stare at Wrath and her physique. Either way, hope this beer makes its mark to appeal your beer taste or anime. Whichever you prefer, we do both here and brewerianimelogs .

Aromas:
Citrus, Tomato, wheat bread, caramel, apples, funky farmhouse hay, floral notes, basil, banana notes, sour grapes, red wine, oak, herbal notes, peppercorns, cranberries, pecans, tree sap, mushrooms, honey, old yeast, smoked BBQ meats, leather, brown sugar, grapes and old oranges.

Flavors:
Citrus and tomato, raw like the sun, floral notes, caramel, green apples, funky farmhouse hay, wheat bread, old bananas, sour wine grapes, oak, pinot noit, wine and cheese party, herbs, peppercorn spices, cherries, Amber sap, brown sugar, leather, tart cranberries, pecans, mushrooms, honey and mild smokey ham notes.

Aftertaste:
Finishing mostly dry with dissipating Caramel, pinot noir wine notes, hay, vegetable flavor, fancy cheese, amber sap, honey, earthy notes, peppercorn, herbs and spices. No alcohol in the taste, medium to sipping drinkability with medium to full mouth feel.

Overall:
This beer kind of reminds me of The Bruery White Oak except without the bourbon complexity. An interesting Saison and just to add the Pinot Noir Barrels makes it very interesting for sure. The flavors of the barrel are very prominent in this one. I would recommend this one if you can find it but if if you have tried White Oak from the Bruery, it is similar in flavor except for the tart aspect of it.

Anime Corner:
Original Artwork by paparins and the other Original Artwork by unknown (Artist info needed) was used in this pairing to pair with the label artwork as well as the beer. While this is definitely not your typical saison, the Wrath aspect of the beer may not be prominent immediate upon trying the beer, it comes surely after and is what best represents it well. The artwork of a demon on a rampage best represents wrath but the sweetness of this beer is what is represented in the second pairing which shows that sometimes, a rampaging demon has to take a brake from time to time. Just like lust, do not take her so suddenly, she will make quick work out of the unsuspecting victim.

The Sinner Series Lust by Amager Bryghus of Kastrup Denmark

The Sinner Series Lust by Amager Bryghus of Kastrup Denmark is a 9.2% ABV Belgian Strong Dark Ale.

Label:
Danish: Denne stærke belgiske ale er så sødmefuld, at vi ikke er bange for at kalde den for rendyrket begær på flaske. Under brygningen blev stemningen så løssluppen, at brygger Jacob og brygger Morten brød ud i store mængder spontane kindkys til hinanden. Hvis ikke Thomas Schön var dukket uanmeldt op, var det sikkert ikke stoppet ved kindkyssene. Denne øl er så vellystig, at vi ikke garanterer for følgerne, hvis du serverer den for kæresten i stearinlysenes skær: det kan meget vel ende i en langvarig forsørgerpligt. Vi har brygget en øl med de mest sensuelle sukre, vi kunne finde i Netto og så har vi krydret den med velrenommerede afrodisiaka som spansk flue, østers og pulveriseret hjortepenis. Eller osse er vi bare fulde af løgn…
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det…

English: This strong Belgian ale is so rich, so sweet and so luscious, that we wouldn’t hesitate calling it pure lust in a bottle. During the making of this beer the general mood in the brewhouse turned somewhat sensual if not downright erotic! And everybody involved in the brewing spontaneously engaged in heavy cheek kissing. If it wasn’t for the unexpected ring of the doorbell things could have gone even further… This beer is so lustful that we cannot vouch for the consequences if you serve this to your girlfriend over a candlelight dinner. This may very well result in a lifelong payment of child support. We have brewed a beer with the most sensual of sugars we could find at our local grocery store.

We were tempted to spice it up with well-renowned aphrodisiacs like Spanish fly or oysters, but frankly we didn’t see the need for it.
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Anime meets beer, is exactly what I thought when I saw this label. This was a controversial label as some European countries like Sweden consider this too sexy too sell. Either way, it made it here to the Western Hemisphere and is one I had my eyes on for a long time. So I picked this one up and definitely wanted to bring it forward. There is something about the beer label I will also mention that I noticed later on in this review but first thing is first, the review of this decadent beers please!

Aromas:
Dark fruit, raisins, figs, prunes, cherries currants, brown sugar, espresso, dark and milk chocolate, biscuit bread, dulce de leche caramel, biscuit bread, toffee, rye, honey and butterscotch.

Flavors:
Coffee, Dark fruits like figs currants, raisins, prunes, cherries, blueberries, black berries, dates, hints of hazelnut, praline pecans, port wine, lavender flowers, oats, honey, dulce de leche caramel, vanilla, rye, biscuit bread, earthy notes, dark and milk chocolate, toffee, butterscotch, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread with jelly, leathery notes, tobacco, clove and hints of banana .

Aftertaste:
A variety of dark fruits still linger for a long time like cherries, raisins, blue berries, black berries, honey, rye, caramel, candi sugars, chocolate, earthy notes, toasted rye bread and grape jelly. No alcohol in the taste, sipping beer with smooth quality which is dangerous for the ABV. Good thing it is only a small 500ml bottle. It also has a syrupy and velvet mouth feel.

Overall:
Perfect beer if you love sweet dark fruit Belgian beers. This is almost like reminds me of La Corriveau by Le Bilboquet but more fruitier and well, it is a Belgian beer so more of a Dark Belgian style. There is this New Belgium Fat Tire base that reminds me of the malty caramel beer but if you took that beer and did not filter it and make it stronger with a ton of complex flavors and syrupy. You would come close to what this beer is. It also has some English Old Ale meets Belgian dark aspects too. Hard to describe. It is damn good, and I am not just referring about the sexy label, no, this is pretty fucking good and highly recommended.

Anime Corner:
Lust from Full Metal Alchemist was not only the best pairing for the beer, she was the star of the label. I am not sure if Amager got the inspiration, but this was way too perfect. I was kind of surprised that I did not catch this earlier but it make so much sense to use Lust from FMA on this. She is one seductive woman who searches to find weak-minded alchemist and turn them into victims. This beers sweet and complex flavors compliment her power and her seductive ways. The strength of the alcohol makes her very dangerous for those that try to court her too fast, trust me, if you take this beer and you don’t take your time, you will be sorry. Lust is that kind of character.
