Une bière puissante et douce à la fois, un bonheur pour les papilles ! Belle corpulence et un équilibre parfait. Génial !

Hanoi (379) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Nose is yeast, cloves, banana, some spice, light herbal notes. Complex but over dominated by the yeast. Taste is cloves, banana, brown sugar, leading to honey, orange light spice and a light peppery note in the dry corrianderish finish The mouthfeel is fine but the alcohol a little too pronounced. It’s a very nice beer but a little underwhelming for such an important anniversary.

KAWANO (25) - JAPAN - MAR 4, 2014
With that said commemorative bottle, it might be too much to expect from before drinking. Level is different from the Blue As it turns out. I thought you are losing both smell taste, and I want to recreate in the thing about 11% of the alcohol content if it is this.

Unclear golden color with a white head. Malty, mild yeast, some spices and fruity aroma. Medium + body. Slight sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok carbonation. Nice fresh ale. Malty, fruity, some spices and some yeast. Tasty sipper.
