09.01.13. Bottle. White foam that settles into an even carpet on the surface. Slightly cloudy yellow/orange color. Aroma is sweet. Tastes super sweet, yuck. Artificial sweetener. Low carbonation. Aftertaste is awful, more sweetener. Overall, terrible beer.

Gurthnar (3336) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from Spar. Aroma flowery, peach, hoppy. Moderate intensity. Hazy orange colour, stable head. Taste relatively very sweet, spicy Belgian yeastiness, peach, flowery, honeyish. Overt sweetness somewhat impairs drinkability. Good though.

Saeglopur (1172) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 26, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Orange to copper, moderate hazy body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of flowers, berries, grass, some spices.
Taste is sweet, quite sticky, with honey, sweet berries, some flowers.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet, with honey, some fruits and slight hops.

OK, but nothing special. Very sweet and except some floral notes, pretty average stuff in my opinion.

Taste very much the honey! Very nice smell and color, and to finish, if you don't like sugar/honey with beer, don't try it!

leghorn99 (143) - Livorno, ITALY - OCT 11, 2014
Ha un bel colore dorato carico, al confine con l’ambrato, leggermente opalescente. Ha schiuma che si mostra abbondante appena la si versa, e che ha una buona persistenza. Al naso è ricca, con note di caramello, malto, zucchero di canna, miele d’acacia e un floreale dolce e deciso. Il corpo è ricco, pieno e abbastanza “variabile”: parte quasi asciutta, per virare rapidamente sul caramelloso e sciropposo, con l’abboccato dello zucchero candito e del floreale leggermente eccedente nel finale. Leggermente meno ricco di zuccheri il finale, che presenta una leggera nota amarognola che cerca, senza però riuscirci, di compensare la massiccia sensazione di dolcezza. Da bere con moderazione.

Birra incredibile nella sua complessa diversità. Una belgian alé, credo, che già dal bellissimo bouquet floreale si distingue. Così come in bocca, visto la dolcezza estrema che ricorda lo zucchero filato accompagnato da pere e banane, oltre che da una punta di fragola. Il finale anche è zuccherino, quindi non direi una birra da bevute abbondanti ma sicuramente una birra da assaporare per addolcirsi, prima che divenga stucchevole.
