A sweet red fruity aroma of grapes, peaches and perfume with a nice ruby glow. Taste, however is a little lacking. A bit fruity, and a little sticky but doesn’t live up to the aroma. Very easy to drink though but a more bold flavour would help.

Una strong non tropo particolare ma comunque buona. Rosso rubino con riflessi ambrato carico, schiuma compatta ma non persistente, buona struttura del corpo, rotondo, poco luppolata, buon finale

Raisin cake, nuts. Red fruit, croissant, green pepper, sour sweet finish. Can feel a bit of the alcohol burn, interesting strong red ale but not that smooth or balanced.

Fashawn (341) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 24, 2014
Bell’aroma di prugne, uvetta lievito e alchool appena percettibile. L’aspetto è di una splendida birra color rubino, con una schiuma beige. Alla lingua arriva subito la prugna, un po’ di malto e orzo. In bocca è una vera sorpresa, col corpo rotondo e la carbonatazione medie che la rende molto ben bevibile. Si sente la crosta del pane, il burro, la prugna, luvetta e qualche biscottino. L’alcool è ben nascosto, emerge solo sul.finale che è amaro ma magari non secchissimo. Buonissima birra.

ElManana (849) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2014
Must say, gorgeous bottle. Pours brown, ruby red with small disappearing head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel and grass. Taste is quite flat, more dried fruit combined with quite bitter hops. Have had better.

PapaVillum (587) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
75 cl, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, købt i SuperBrugsen på Østerbro, 13. september 2014. Mahognifarvet belgisk stærk Ale med fine cognacnoter i modlys. En fin mindre offwhite-farvet skumtop, som svinder ind til et par mm. Aromaen er typisk belgisk for denne øltype med masser af tørret frugt, som rosin, sveske og belgisk gær. Svage/fjerne noter af læder. Smagen er domineret af sødme, sukker og frugt med en bitterhed som usynlig partner. Læner sig op af sine belgiske søstre med lidt større potentiale. Fin balance mellem sødme og bitterhed, men en anelse mere vandet end "søstrene". Øllet har fin mundfylde, cremet i munden, en middel til kraftig krop, og et let afdæmpet kuldioxid indhold. Eftersmagen er lang og vedholdende. Umiddelbart en fin belgisk øl, men jeg savner det sidste spark, som kunne hive denne øl helt op i superligaen af belgiske øl.
