27/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 30/IV/13 - (2012-762)

Clear amber red beer, big yellow to beige creamy head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: citrus, little metallic, grassy, some paint, touch of caramel sweetness, some overripe fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citric start, pretty fruity, grassy, bitter hops, some grapefruit, caramel and malty backbone. Aftertaste: some toast, caramel, bit grassy, some citrus. ESB? I’d say APA, but that’s just me... I’m suspecting American hops in this one...

androman (451) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from De Molen. Hazy amber body, very big massive rocky fully lasting excellent lacing head. Nose is brown sugar, parfume, marshmallow, Aroma is tons of malt, medium chocolate, slightly roasty, steamed vegetables, later quite hoppy. Taste light to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, slightly acidic. Medium body, slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation, long lasting bitter finish. Refreshing, not too easy to drink, quite much like a land/kellerbier and brown ale mixture with much stronger hoppy flavor. Very interesting.

Bottle from Bier-Deluxe.de. Surprisingly dark amber color with medium off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, honey,citrus hops.Taste, dark malt, citrus, overlapped by strong hoppy bitterness. I miss a bit a malty base, but overall good.

@BeerPlanet: BB 14042014. A la décapsule la bière a jailli. Je ne dis pas merci à BerPlanet. Cela me signale un problème de qualité sur cette bière.
Bière ambrée houblonnée et généreusement torréfiée qui offre un beau nez aromatique dominé par la cassonade, le boisé, la levure et une amertume épicée. En bouche, la bière étant passée, elle me laissait un voile très visqueux sur la palais. Le maltage est doux assez bien caramélisé, voire rôti accopagné de saveurs boisées de la torréfaction qui se finit avec une levure un peu terreuse, je dirais. Le houblonnage est assez sympa: le boisé se terminant sur des notes acres, voire très légèrement astringente sur la langue. Moyen.

Draught at L’Angolo dei 33, Trento, Italy. Dark reddish amber with one finger of fine, creamy off white head. Very faint smell of roasted malts, taste is roasted malts again, light coffee, good final bitterness. Light carbonation, medium body.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam
Gusher. Aroma has ripe fruits, apricot and toffee. Also some hay. Flavour is odd with hops, toffee, mint and grapefruit. Finishes with herbal bitterness, gooseberry bush leaves and some alcohol. Too boozy, not good.
