"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...

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle, 33cl. It pours an unclear, pale golden body under a dense, finger-thick white head. Fruity nose with some white sugar and hints of pine cones and resin. The flavor has a nice bitterness, as well as a generic fruityness and some white sugar notes. Medium body, quite dry. A nice bitterness finishes the whole thing. A really pleasant and easy drinkable beer, nothing world class going on, but sure decent. 130208
