3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 0.25l bottle @ Beer Enthusiast release party. Pours a dark honey-amber colored body with a small sidesticking off-white head. It has a light sweet malty aroma, some yeasty tones, a little bit of cardboard, almonds and banana sweetness. The texture and mouthfeel is soft oily and it has a average carbonation level. Flavors are light sweet-ish, malty with traces of candy sugar, almonds and ripe berries. Also some hints of alcohol and it’s leaving my mouth light dry. Yeah, quite a tasty one. 23.04.2012

750ml bottle @martjoobolut’s, thanks. Amber color, full of floaty bits. Looks like divers paradise. Sweet, candy caramel, malty, fruity, apples in aroma. Apples, candy, sweet, malty taste. Caramel in aftertaste. Sweet, but feels watery. Strange. Well tbh I don’t mind it just sad it looks like this.

750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Ugh, crappy floaty bits, and we’re only part of the way through the pour. Sweet mashy pale grains aroma, porridgy. Mart’s glass was less sticky and sweet but more weird. Taste was better, it was a quite light, but sugary, belgian ale. Ours was thick and sticky, mashy and sugary, and just a bit of a mess. As I go down he glass, the flaws fade, but everything fades, it beomes quite weak flavourwise. Brewed from sugar more thin malts, to be honest. Hmm, undecided about this.

Hazy orange beer, medium off-white head. Nose is slightly sweet and malty, fruity notes. Flavor is toasty sweetness and caramel, malt, some fruit notes, apples. Finishes with mild hops, tofee. Pretty drinkable.

Nez : une belle odeur de pâte à pain, de blé, très chaleureuse avec un fond houblonné très rafraîchissant.
En bouche : le pain s’efface pour faire place à un bel arôme caramel. Le houblon part sur des agrumes genre orange/pamplemousse. Le tout présente un superbe équilibre, une jolie rondeur, malgré une présence un peu trop prononcée de l’alcool par rapport à sa finesse.

Kompleks, mørk aroma med mye malt og rosin. Frisk og søt, kremete i munnen med god balanse og konsentrasjon.

Opaque dark gold, medium white head. Dark fruit and some nuts on the nose. Medium body, delightfully balanced flavour - all is in order. Roasty, nutty notes with more of that dark fruit. Overall - delightful, if a bit overcarbonated.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit notes, a little citrus and marzipan, yest and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale.🌟🌟🌟

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle sample from a tasting backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a thin off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, tart apples, citrus, hint of apricots, slight floral hops, only the lightest bitterness, interesting beer, but not something I would seek out.

The description positions this beer beautifully and so I don’t believe I need to add to it. The real triumph was the food match, made by my esteemed company, the writer Geoff Griggs and his wonderful wife Pip. I cooked a slow-roasted lamb shoulder in a ragout of tomato, garlic, cinnamon, olives and ale. I had expect the best match to be an innocuous lager that would cut through the fat of the lamb, but my friends put on this excellent ale whose sweetness set off the savoury of the lamb wonderfully well. A memorable ale for this reason.

Bottle; pours a cloudy caramel color with a tan head; sweet aroma of caramel, fruits, yeast, and bit of malt; taste is sweet with caramel, yeast, fruits, and a touch of syrup; short dry finish with a hint of spice; while the beer is sweet it is not at all over powering and very drinkable; nice Belgian
