Bottle. Tasty blond Belgian beer. Nice white head. I think there were floral notes and other good things about it. Easy drinking.

750 ml bottle into tulip, no bottle dating(but must be quite aged, I got it on clearance). Pours very cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of honey, apple, pear, apricot, earth, herbal, floral, bread, light pepper, and light yeast spices. Pretty nice and interesting aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, apple, pear, honey, bread, earth, herbal, pepper, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of caramel, honey, apple, pear, bread, herbal, pepper, floral, earth, and light yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Very nice malt sweetness to peppery flavor balance; with nice complexity and no cloying sweetness at all. A bit of an earthy tang on the finish as well, but not bad. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale ale. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; very pleasant and smooth to sip on. Despite the questionable age, this was still quite enjoyable; and certainly worth the 5 dollars I paid for the bottle.

Botella de 330ml. Coipa Globo. Notas de may´11. Color dorado y espuma blanca. Capa de burbuja pequeña que se disipa lentamente. Aromas de miel y carmaelo con untoque de manzana Granny Smith. El sabor es malteado con gentil dulzor y matices de especias. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Sutiles notas afrutadas en el intermedio. Bajo amargor que compensa el limpio dulzor. Interesante y sabrosa cerveza. 330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Notes dated on may´11. Golden color headed by white froth. Small bubbled, slowly dissipated crown. Honey & candy aromas, granny Smith apple touch. Flavor is malty, gentle sweet with spiced hues.Medium body, medium carbonation. Subtle fruity notes in the middle. Low bitterness cuts clean sweetness.

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Slight gusher. Hazy golden color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, yeast, lightly sugar and something weird I can’t describe. Taste malts, some sour hints or maybe the beers is infected and some sour-bitterness. Medium body, a bit fizzy carbo.

Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours cloudy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, sugar, dried fruits, citrus, orange and floral hops. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long kind of spicy, citrus, fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. A slow gusher, producing a diminishing, off-white head over an unclear golden-orange body. Yeasty, fruity nose with something reminiscent of honey, as well as a good dash of white sugar and fruityness. Quite bitter flavor, that in a strange way don’t suit the beer. Pale malts, fruityness and some yeasty hints in the flavor. A strange one, certainly not my beer. 120330
