colui72 (316) - HONG KONG - JUN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Not the best by Van Honsebrouck. Booze tastes too strong, average Belgian Ale. Too similar to many others

Grumbo (881) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
750ml ’champagne’ style bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a slightly hazy light golden colour with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of hops, apple, banana, caramel and honey. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, with a light sourness too. Medium body, texture is sticky, average carbonation. Decent enough if unspectacular.

huineman (421) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2015
Pours golden with rocky head. Aroma is very low: biscuit, spearmint, corn flakes. Mouth-covering, medium body. Not very long-lasting.

beermaris (164) - LATVIA - MAY 24, 2015
Amber golden appearance. Bitter and a bit sour taste. Interesting taste altogether but not rich in nuances.

Torrefacto (951) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 3, 2015
Dorado limpio y espuma blanca algo ligera.Aromas de ésteres afrutados, ciruela y uva. Cuerpo denso con carbonatacion alta que aporta además un golpe de acidez a un sabor dulce, aunque plano que acaba en un final seco de amargor moderado.

HammerTroll (848) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 30, 2015
Every time I visit Vrutak, I watch this little bottle. For over a year now. I guess I was a bit skeptical. Finally bought it. Hazy golden color, big white head. Aroma is yeast, wheat and malt. Medium sourness and sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Alcohol hidden well. Something in between lighter BSA, Wit and Saison, perhaps. Not bad after all.
(Vrutak 0,33l bottle)

Alusmamuts (1064) - LATVIA - MAR 24, 2015
Amber hazy with rich off-white head. Yeasty aroma. taste too agressive - sharp yeasty notes as well as sourness, some sweetnes and diachetyl.
