Achel (273) - Ioannina, GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 Opened with a good strong effusion of gas. Pours hazy dark gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma of malt and slightly spicy hop. Full bodied, thinning as the carb leaves. Flavor is quite floral with light malt and some standard Belgian herb/spice. And fruity. Rather sophisticated and tasty.

probstblueribbon (3400) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep golden with a full, tight white head. Aroma: Boozy and fruity, lots of lemon-lime notes, sort of herbal, sweet honey, coriander. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Lots of lemon-lime, quite fruity and sweet, honey, a little coriander, some booze, almost buttery; quite sweet with minimal bitterness, some alcohol and a long, fruity finish.

Not bad. A bit too sweet for me.

Hazy golden colour, big white head that does not hold for too loong, but leaves a good lace and a ring on the surface. Lots of sediments clearly visible through the bottle. Spicy aroma, with cloves, bay leaf, candy, banana, apricot. Medium to full body, sticky, creamy. Taste is similar to aroma: Cloves, spices, candy,malt, fruits. Special indeed.

Flaske 0,75 liter, super lćkker řl, men syntes at den mangler lidt cremet’hed, smager virkelig godt og dufter godt, til prisen mangler den lidt.

Satyroneto (253) - BRAZIL - JAN 9, 2015
Cor dourada escura com tons palha um pouco turva; espuma branca de média formação e persistência de uma fina camada com lacing pouco/razoável (servida na taça da marca que favorece menor expansão da espuma); Aroma complexo de maçã, uva verde e vinho branco; Sabor inicial de maçã e uva verde evoluindo pra um final picante e alcoólico que aquece a boca; retrogosto alcoólico e picante de especiarias. Corpo médio e carbonatação alta.

Bottle sample. Thanks rayaron. Cloudy yellow golden with a large frothy head. Aroma of sweet overripe fruits, coriander, spices, yeast. Moderate sweet, fruity, spices, herbs, light-medium bitterness, well balanced. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Decent.
