FatPhil (9723) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 330ml bottle (Tolly, Tartu)
Harsh sour smell, bit of booze there. Clear, it’s scary. Bit of yeast softens the scariness, but it’s still not good. Rough and alcoholic. Clean one tastes of apples and booze. Hazy one tastes of horrors and booze.

330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Slightly hazy yellow color. Tiny size head, stays. Malty, sour, fizzy, faint candy in aroma. sweet, perfume, alcohol, vinegar, plastic in taste. Horrible. Never again.

Alusmamuts (549) - LATVIA - JAN 12, 2015
Yellow, bit bibbly with rich creamy head. atse with nice bitterness, which stays on the last part of tongue balanced with some sweetness, but a bit too much sourness (lemon like) in the taste.

- Alcoholpercentage van 9,4% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

À servir doucement car elle mousse vite et tien assait bien Elle est de couleur dorée et la mousse est bien blanche (comme une pils) au nez on va sortir des notes d'alcool et de grain germer En bouche elle est assez douce et on va sentir des notes d'alcool Ce n'est pas vraiment une bière de dégustation...

mikeyo1 (293) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow with swimming yeast particles. Lasting, medium white head. Sweet aroma of honey infused oath cakes, caramel, nuts. Orange, sour lemon and spices in the background. Sweet phenolic taste with oaths, pears, toffee, caramel, oranges, pepper, yeast and vanilla. Some earth and nuts in the finish along with a low bitterness and a rather sticky alcohol note that makes the aftertaste unbalanced. All together the flavor combinations are odd, but interesting.

Fashawn (221) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 13, 2014
Il tipo di birra che mi soddisfa. Bello l’aroma, con il lievito che sale subito al naso e incontra la mela. Esteticamente la birra risulta biondo acceso, con uno splendido cappello di schiuma compatta e fine, senza risultare disomogenea o sgranata. Buona anche il sapore complessivo, anche se alla lingua sembra scialba. Non la birra migliore di questo mondo, ma sicuramente una buonissima compagna di bevute con il sapore del lievito a farla da padrone, e quel sentore amaro che pulisce tutto. In lontananza sin sente anche la banana. La bocca rimane buonissima dopo la bevuta

Een goed en lekker biertje met een rijke smaak. Niet het beste dat er is maar zeker ook geen tegenvaller

Alengrin (2586) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Strong ale in existence since 1991. Off-white, not too stable head, colour pure amber, misty. Aroma as well as taste orangey fruity, caramelly malty, a bit nutty, honey and pepper; yeasty middle, finish warmly alcohol, fortunately not too astringent. One of the better Huyghe products, but I’ve never been a devoted fan of this brewery.
