Clear yellow with big white foam head. Sweet aroma, so is taste but there is still some alcohol involved. Taste is too sweet, not my style. (Velp 201206)

Soemhow I felt uncomfortambly much more alcohol in this one than in Bush Amber. Has an appearance of a czech pils, frothy, and later creamy head; sweet, long bitter finish.
For me harsher and less complex than the Amber that I now know I prefer.

From BA (Sept 2007). This 25cl brown bottle with its posh gold topage has been sat in my garage for over a year. I moved it to my fridge three days ago. I was horrified to discover it was out of date, I should have drunk it before 27 July 2007. Never mind it is only a couple of months.
The bottom of the beer (while still in the bottle) had a scummy cloud moving about, I tried to keep its movement to a minimum, but particles floated upwards even before I even opened it.
I poured it into my huge ’Judas’ glass, as I wasn’t sure how emotional the beer would be after being released. I poured it as slowly as i could to try and prevent too much sediment hitting the glass. I did a fairly good job, but no head appeared at all, just a very thin collar around the glass.
The colour was light orange, blood grapefruit skin, if you like. Only a little cloudy, but I did pour slowly remember. It didn’t look very appetising at all.
The aroma was all yeast and alcohol, cooking apples mixed in.
Taste is better than I was expecting, sour and very alcoholic. Plenty of life even though there was no head.
Of course the alcohol stays in the mouthfeel, but so does the sourness, this is a better beer than it looks.
Even though the taste is good, I also drink with my eyes. When you consider other beers within this style (Duvel etc) and how beautiful they can look with their large heads and golden bodies, this just doesn’t come up to the picture my eyes want to see.

Hazy blond with some massive chunks of residue whizzing around the glass. Aroma is bready and malty. Flavour is quite sweet and a little bit yeasty. A bit spicing and numbing on the tongue.

Egészen világos, citromsárga színű sör, ami opálosan lassan gomolyogva pihen a poharunkban. Habja krémes, fehér, vékony de igen kitartó. Illata édeskés, aszalt sárga gyümölcsös, fűszeres, kissé sajtos és élesztős. Ízében nem csak aszalt gyümölcsök, hanem házi baracklekvár is érződik, ott a belga élesztő fűszeressége és kissé csípős fanyarsága, az alkohol édessége, koriander, fehér bors. Elég testes és olyan szénsavas, mint egy jobb pezsgő. Utóíze keserédes, gyümölcsös és kissé száraz. Ravasz egy sör, mert rendkívüli módon itatja magát és nem is vesszük észre rajta, hogy voltaképpen milyen erős. Remek!
