Accusata perchè troppo dolce? Non fa assolutamente niente. Certo se vi piacciono SOLO le IPA o le birre che usano la lingua come sacco per pugili girate a largo. Se invece vi piace variare risulterà una buona birra, mai stucchevole. Molto forte il gusto di miele, alla fine lo zucchero di canna uscira fuori gia bello e vestito. Floreale. Con i dessert intavola dialoghi di buon gusto. A mio parere molto sottovalutata su questo sito.

Incredibly, disgustingly sweet. Flowery aroma and its golden appearance are not a put-off, but the honey, brown sugar most definitely are.

TBone (11905) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 09/2013)
Deep orange-amber color, small steady off-white creamy head. Fruity Belgian yeasty aroma with hints of coriander. Medium-bodied. Quite sweet, lots of kandi sugar, sweet honeyish notes, then orange peels, yeast and some alcohol in the finish. Lingering sweet herbal aftertaste. Too sweet for my liking.

sinte (301) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle 0.33 L. Cloudy dark golden body with an average, creamy, off-white head, mostly lasting with a good lacing; high density of tiny particles. Heavy honey aroma with notes of sugar and maple syrup; malty (biscuit) and hoppy (Sweet flowers) characters are also present. Heavy sweet flavour lightly balanced by an acidic note in the long-lasting finish. Medium body with a creamy texture; lively carbonation. Really a sweet beer, ideal with desserts I’d say, like apple strudel.

Yves (2073) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2011
Clear amberish cloured beer with large white head and lots of carbonation. Fruity hopped aroma. Full sweet and sparkling palate. Finish is sweet sugar ending sweet slight bitter and dry. Too sweet for me.

Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sugary sweet flavor, some caramel and some fruitiness, faint spiciness and faint alcohol.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2011
In bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a thin white head. Mead aroma with honey puffs and hibiscus flowers. Similar flavours with caramel, barley and oats. Quite floral overall with very low carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Fairly sweet and malty. Interesting.

Svesse (5862) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, marmalade, flowers and jelly candy. Fruity, floral taste with dried fruit, candy, roses, treacle and a slightly spicy finish with a fairly low bitterness. Solid malt foundation, quite sweet. On the sweet side, but tasty, well balanced and nice.
