veceo (229) - CROATIA - FEB 23, 2014
Hazy golden color, thick white head. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma is malts, yeast, some fruits. Medium to high sweetness, mild traces of bitterness. OK, but kinda boring and unbalanced Belgian strong ale.

RexTalionis (2131) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours clear golden in color with a massive whitish head. Very fruity aroma, peppery spicyness and dry hay too. Nice biting spicyness in taste, garden fruityness and forrest green is present as well. A bit on the sweet side towards the end, but otherwise quite refreshing. Dry, slightly spicy with sweet fruityness in aftertaste.

Pours a golden yellow. Lots of head on this beer. Smells bready, has a little spice, and yeasty. Great tasting bready and earthy flavor with a hint of fruit.

330ml bottle bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.

Cloudy hazy golden honey yellow colour with small traces of yeast sediments; Two finger head with long lasting crumpety white foams; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Slightly fragrant aroma of malt, with light caramel, sugar, vanilla, light alcohol, and muted Bel yeast; Mid to light sweet taste of malt, with light metallic, shades of boiled jicama, caramel, ester, sugar, Bel yeast, very light spices, light liquorices, lemon, and strong grass; Medium body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is fat body, good Bel yeast but short on fruity ester tastes. Strong sweetness but not cloying, booze is well hidden. There’s initial metallic plus bugging boiled jicama motes in the background suggests oxidation. That’s aside, it’s okayish… Hoppiness is no nose, lemony and strong grass in taste. Light liquorices mixes well with sweetness for a quite balanced, short sweet-bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste, sweet and easy to mouth.

Comments: Compares to the sub-par BSAs like Leffe Royale and Palm Royale I had earlier, this one cuts from pretty much the similar cloth, but is better in looks, body, and solid in taste. Of course, it’s still short on taste varieties, plus a very muted and lacking aroma keep this one from being top. It’s quite okay and drinkable, but far away from being likeable and favorite. Oh well.
