BoBoChamp (5758) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2013
33cl, new exclusive brewfirm Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly fruity/spicy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, ’This to celebrate my 2000th Belgian Beer Rating. Always nice to see some new Belgian breweries and brewfirms coming out! Starting my life as a wine taster I didn’t think I would get so far with craft beer... I still pursue all bottled Belgian beers I havn’t rated yet, except low alcohol. Many thanks to those fellow Beergeeks who helped me out in this never ending venture...’ Note to Joris: the deal still goes on... (as soon I will have another milestone!)

yngwie (15567) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. There’s a few small floaties in this one, else it’s clear, with a dark amber body and a small but firm light beige head. The aroma has some toffee and a little bit of roasted malts, as well as both fresh and dried fruits. Mostly dried though. The flavor has a pleasant sweetness, with malts, roasted notes, dried fruits and some faint bitterness. Medium to full body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a more pronounced bitterness in the end, but still it can’t really be classified as bitter. Anyway, it’s a beer I wouldn’t mind drinking again, I like the way the flavors are integrated. 120218
