3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned, 330ml, from The Bottleshop, Bruges aged 6 yrs. Slightly clouded amber gold with explosive white head. Still really lively after ageing which stirred the yeast up somewhat. Strangely this still tastes a little on the raw, spiky side, there is a sharp, slightly herby, spicy character, positioned against a bitter malt note. Tastes just a little unbalanced.

Brought home from eu roadtrip. Clear golden with a thick creamy white head. Great powerfull yeast fruity aroma with notes of banana, lime and berries. Also has a herbal touch of coriander. Flavor is welbalanced with the alchohol doing nothing but good matched up to the fullbodied deep malty sweetness and yeasty fruit. Great!

I disagree with the "staying head" part of the pitch, it’s a little thin but still not bad. Nice blonde body. The aroma is soft, heavy on the malts with only a hint of hops. The taste is a load of grass on the front odd citrus notes, easing into a heavy alcoholic and grassy bière-de-garde finish. Good mouthfeel. Rather nice, a little more complex than I expected.

This is what a beer should look like. Clear, golden/copper color, big strong head. Taste starts nicely malty, but then the alcohol comes on and stays. Viscous mouthfeel, alcohol aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 330 ml brown grenade bottle pours a cloudy, effervescent amber/orange bodied ale with a large, long-lasting white head that left excellent lacing. Aromas of light grain, orange rind and alcohol. Well-attenuated and dry through-and-through, this is a lively, medium-bodied ale, with a complex mid-palate flavor profile that expands as the beer warms to room temperature and the strong orange citrus elements give way to other fruit flavors like green apple and banana. The beer has a long, dry finish and an ABV of 9.0%. Overall, a very nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml stubby bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 9%. Golden colour, huge and lasting white head. Very nice initial fruity and spicy aroma, loses some its impact after a couple minutes in the glass. The flavour is sweet and spicy with noticeable hops, but the alcohol is not too well hidden. Could have been better, could have been worse.
