Butelka, dluga polezakowala. jasne, opalizujace, z wysoka i niebrzydka piana. Aromaty mocno przyprawowo-ziolowe, kolendra na pierwszym planie z bialym pieprzem i chyba faktycznie delikatnym kardamonem, ale tez sa owoce jasne (broskwinia, modela, bnan), troche cytrusow nawet, guma balonowa, miod, jakies od drozdzow zapachy sera (jakby to dziwnie nie brzmialo - ale to fany aromat). W smaku wyraznie slodkawe, powtorzneie aromatow, dosc pelne, dosc wysoko wysycone, z niewysoka goryczka. Wszystko w tym piwie bylo zaskakujaca poukladane, alkohol super ukryty. Jak dla mnie super, nawet ta kolendra po raz chyba pierwszy z pitych przeze mnie piw pasuje do calosci.

Une très belle bière à la mousse crémeuse. Le nez allie agrumes, coriandre, épices, notes houblonnées et fruitées. La bouche est un régal de fraîcheur et d’ampleur, l’ensemble est long est équilibré. Un régal de fin de soirée

Zlotta (1331) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
0.75 l corked bottle from Bierpost, now about three years old. Clear, luscious golden yellow with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, tan to white head. Yeasty-spicy aroma of coriander, vanilla, citrus, apricot jam and hints of cinnamon. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of vanilla, coriander, coconut, citrus, apricot jam and hints of cinnamon, followed by a long, slightly bitter, gently warming, alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very spicy, great mouthfeel. The alcohol is noticable but not yet disturbing, may have been different right after bottling. Suggests christmas spices with a gently fruity and yeasty touch, providing an almost full body. Very good!

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy honey color with a light tan head. The semi is Juicy Fruit gum with fruit and toasted malt, some herbs. The taste is pretty much as it smells with some crisp dryness and yeast at the end. Light/medium body with fine carbonation.

gramity (1586) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours a really nice tan color with a fluffy white head that lasts throughout with little bubbles. Sweet, sugary and boozy

The cork shot hard, and I’m glad I moved out of the way. This beer is about what you’d expect, malt sweetness cut by yeast spiciness, hops are very faint in the background.
