"In fermento veritas." Bière aux 10 épices (10 spices) BeerMania is not a brewery, the "Mea Culpa" (or Mea Maxima Culpa, the same in 75cl bottle - there is even Ultima Culpa, but that’s an incredibly large artsy glass) is brewed upon Nassers’ own recipe at a Belgian brewery. He declines so far to tell which, until he has all contracts signed and papers worked out...

FatPhil (13629) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 1, 2013
330ml bottle (Laijuva Lahna, Helsinki)
Super soft aroma. Super soft palate. Gentle grains all over. Drinkability is MASSIVE. Nothing fancy anywhere, just a classic belgian ale, but it’s brilliantly crafted. Very nice finish. Subtlety and balancde is this beer’s strength.

Beer5000 (5866) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
330 ml bottle. A slightly cloudy pale golden body with a big white head. Nice and delicate aroma of yeast, spices and white sugar with a hint of citric fruit. Flavour is sweet, light malty, spices, yeast and light fruity. Medium body and pleasant aftertaste. A really complex version of a blonde beer that grows in taste and actually shows much more than an average beer within this style.
