Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schöne kastanienbraun-rote Farbe, ganz komisch süßlich-metallischer Geruch. Der Antrunk ist wässrig und ganz leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommen etwas malzige Noten hinzu, die süße Note fügt sich sehr gut ein, viel Aroma findet sich aber nicht. Zum Nachgeschmack hin wird das Bier ein Bisschen herber, ganz leicht säuerlich.
→ Sehr interessant, aber irgendwie nicht so meins… 5+12+7+6

PapaVillum (393) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
65 cl, flaske, 5,9 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 6. februar 2014. Ufiltreret flot mahognifarvet belgisk forårsøl med 1 cm tykt offwhite-farvet skumtop. God, ret kraftig, duft af rosin, figner og andet frugt. Både sød og syrlig. God frisk smag af både Bock og noget frugtrigt. Overraskende god balance, som er rigtig rar - der er bitterhed, men klart mere frugtsødme. Kulsyreindholdet er middel, måske en anelse over middel, men det klæder øllet pænt. Smagen starter let syrligt/sødt, bevæger sig over i bitterhed og slutter i en blanding af bitterhed og let syrlighed...meget rart. Et spændende glas øl, som man bare ikke bliver træt af. Og desuden en meget køn etiket, som præsenterer øllet på en elegant måde. Let it be spring! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dobre piwo de garde bez osadu wiec filtrowane co w tym przypadku nie oznacza gorsze. Ladny kolor ciemnego bursztynu i spora kremowa piana, trwala i gesta. Fajna krachlowa butelka o poj 0,65cl. Sezonowe wiosenne Biere de Garde z wiekszego browaru, ale mimo to i tak bylem zachwycony smakiem tego tresciwego piwa.

yngwie (13161) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle, 65cl. It’s a clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger, light beige head leaving lacings. Malty nose with a caramel touch. Some candy and a little note of cola and spices. A bit strange, but quite nice. The flavor has the same cola and spices hint, but it’s the maltyness that plays the lead role. Caramel tending towards toffee, lightly bready, and with some fruity hints too. Full body, quite carbonated, but in a nice and suitable way. Semi-dry. A little bitterness in the finish. A beer well suited for the spring time I think, but it’s not super exiting. 130504
