LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 9, 2008
Trionfo di prugne nell’aroma e nel sapore, questa birra di Natale di Castelain volevo conservarla per il 25 dicembre, ma essendo arrivato a 599 volevo fare 600 senza assaggiare niente di troppo pretenzioso o troppo grande; 65cl di Ch’Ti mi sembrano l’ideale. Solito fruttivendolo di via Maddalena. Questa è la tipica birra che mi stufa un poco, con le sue note estremamente dolci che non vengono smorzate dal finale un po’ secco tipico delle bières de garde (e a cui mi sto abituando siccome ne sto bevendo tantissime).

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2010
Bouteille de 65cl. Couleur dorée, mousse plutôt faible qui ne tient pas longtemps. Arômes de fruits et d’épices, un peu légère en carbonation. Au moment ou je l’ai dégustée, je l’ai trouvée encore un peu jeune. Trouvée à huit à huit - Vitry en Artois.

jaghana (5520) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle 75cl. A clear copper beer with small head. Smell is fruity. Aroma is sweet with fruit and spice aroma on agrumes, bitter with a dry finish. Not really exceptional but drinkable.

thewolf (12131) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear golden with a super-nice, staying, creamy white head. A truly perfect looking blonde. Aroma is sweetish, citric, doughy. Light herbal. High carbonation, lightish mouthfeel. Flavour has some pilsner-feel to it at first, citric and sugary, but redeems itself with an okay malty sweetness with a finish with a light vinious finish. Average, but truly pretty.
