MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle, 7.7%. Fruity and refreshing hop aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is fruity, semi-sweet to begin with, but dries out a bit. Clean and well-balanced. Almost too clean for the style, but that might not be a bad thing. Semi-anonymous but very drinkable.

Wolfbass (864) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 14, 2014
I tedeschi che copiano in modo così i belgici, in effetti mi ha un pò sorpreso. Nel complesso potabile, ma non certo indimenticabile...

olio (5281) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2014
75 cl bottle @ Timo A. Jahrgang 2012.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, toffee, yeast, wood and some juicy notes. Flavor of apricot, peach, wood, some yeast and juice, faint alcohol throughput. Medium carbonation, moderately sourish palate. A bit too juicy for me, alcohol comes through a bit also.

750 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a slightly golden colour with a minimal white head. Aroma of rhubarb, sweet malts and grass. Flavour of sweet malts, rhubarb, alcohol and pear. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Nice and warming but a bit dull.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Alex Shmoo-Shmoo. Jahrgang 2011. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, cardboard, a cookie-ish note and light fruitiness. Sweet flavor of cardboard, stale malt, honey-ish notes, a light fruity hint and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied. BBD is in 2017, but this one’s already too old.

Idiosynkrasie (3244) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2013
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Unspectacular malty aroma with a wooden touch, cautious hints of honey and resin. Taste is moderately sweet malty with a touch of honey and elderberry, some fruit acid abates the sirupy viscousness, cautious hints of yeasty spicyness.
