Grzesiek79 (3182) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 20, 2013
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.

PapaVillum (425) - 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

yngwie (13529) - 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

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2012
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et stort tætsiddende skumhoved. Duften er ekstyrem sød, med en masse karamel og lidt slik. Smagen er også sød hvor den samme slikkede karamel kommer frem. Man skal have en sød tunge og være i humør. Det var jeg.

Pours a clear and dark copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, yogurt, fruit and hops with dirt. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.
