A tipical strong belgian ale......perhaps a little bit strong, the spicy flavour is not enough to cover the alcoolic taste of the beer and the carbonation is eccessive. Anyway a good beer

vickey9 (751) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Quite blond with white head. Nose is a barrel lemonade, some summer alcoholic cocktail, wood, yeast. Taste is sweet and a bit sour. Palate is dominated by let say lemon filled by alcohol - simply like a South American beer with a great dosis of vodka or Carrabian rum. B@H

martjoobolut (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2015
0,33L bottle (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours clear pale golden with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grains, malt, metallic. Flavor is sweet, fresh fruits, citrus, malt, alcohol, metallic notes. Overall: not good, basically hobo fuel in fancy bottle...

FatPhil (10992) - 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.

Marduk (4071) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2015
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 (1073) - 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...
