HonusWagner (1974) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A slightly above average Belgian strong dark thing, with a bit of the usual sweet fruity estery component you expect and then some slight orange peel. Drinkable, but totally whatever.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of dried fruit and caramel. Similar taste, light toasted with raisins and some light orange peels. Nice!

heman (479) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Barwa ciemno-miedziana. Aromat słodki: suszone czerowne owoce, karmel. W smaku pełne, owoce w karmelu, niuanse cytrusowe. Goryczka niska, po ogrzaniu alkohol wyczuwalny.

TychoJames (890) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2016
Fat bishops Örebro. Grumlig brunaktig kulör. Djup doft av örter, torkad frukt och farin. Krafull och fyllig smak. Torkad frukt, metall, mörk sirap, äpple och lite knäckiga toner. Intensiv munkänsla med konplexitet. Lömskt värmande alkohol där i vakgrunden

rlgk (16542) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy amber/brown beer with a decent beige head. Fruity yeasty aroma, caramel, citrus, grapes, orange zest, some floral notes. Orange zest flavor, spicy, hay, citrus, yeast, some bread. Orange and pepper finish. Quite ok.

Axile (64) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2016
Flaska från SB. Mörk brun färg med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar vört, jäst, farinsocker och torkad frukt. Smakar torkad frukt, jasmin, apelsin och lite knäck.

Diabobale (426) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 19, 2016
Altamente stucchevole, troppo caramello e alcol al naso, beva non facile anche rispetto allo stile. Speziatura poco valutata con troppo spazio alla frutta, soprattutto all’uva passa.

veceo (1076) - CROATIA - JAN 16, 2016
8% ABV. Cloudy deep amber color, average sized off white head. Aroma of malt, bubblegum, fruits, detergent. Taste is very sweet, malty, dull, honeyish notes, some fruitiness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Yeah, not the biggest fan.

Bottle 0.33l from Hops Beer Shop in Trieste. Cloudy dark amber color with beige soft head. Smell of detergent. Fruity taste with detergent, some bitterness. Nothing special. Medium body.

@ Agards väg 7/1-15. Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty and dried fruity with notes of yeast and some spices. Body is medium, the finish is dry, bitter and fruity.

rayaron (1192) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. 8% abv. Hazy brown with medium beige head. Sweetish soapy aroma with some fruitiness and yeasts, some funk, dusty. Very sweet flavor, a bit alcoholic, fruity and syrupy, notes of raisin and clove, spicy, bitterish with some orange. Medium to full-bodied. Good.
