gyllenbock (5746) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in September 2012. 109 SEK for the bottle. Hazy golden/yellow with a firm white head. Sweet with quite a lot of spices, mostly cardemom and coriander. Also malt, toffee, some lime and dried fruit. Not bad but a glas was enough.

banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
Gylden og skyete i glasset med et friskt skum. Aroma av sitron og alkohol. Smaken er vanvittig syrlig, nesten som å sette tennene i en sitron. Et lite innslag av lime og alkoholvarme. En øl som får deg til å sperre øynene opp, men kanskje ikke av de rette årsaker. Overraskende sprøtt øl fra Chimay - kanskje noen år i kjelleren får den på en mer avbalansert kurs?

freretoc (1106) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 28, 2013
Une mousse magnifique blanche qui tient longtemps avec une couleur jaune troublée des plus magnifique ! En bouche on retrouve un goût citronnée et une belle touche de cardamome pas du tout écoeurante, une bien belle bière !

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, earthy spices, spicy hops, Belgian yeast esters and Candi sugar notes. Flavor is malt forward with Belgian spices, light hops and bitterness fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation.

Lilja (2092) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2013
Flaska drucken med ölföreningen. Smak och doft av lime, örter, lavendel, bergamott, tigerbalsam och hostmedicin. Tvålig, rund, len, blommig med en aning pepprig eftersmak med toner av anis och karamell. Lagom söt och annorlunda smaker.

Vignale (2497) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2013
Flaska från SB drucken med ölföreningen. En riktigt kryddad pjäs. Limeläsk, anis, bergamott, rosmarin, lavendel, kktus och sandelträ, kardemumma. Listan kunde ha fortsatt. Ändå funkar det riktigt bra men inte i för stora doser. Rejäl kropp med välbanserad sötma. Alkoholen märks knappt. Riktigt annorlunda på ett trevligt sätt.

Nische (1159) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2013
Hazy yellow colour with a generous white head with small bubbles and good duration. Aroma is fruity, with banana and apple, slightly citrus hints, cookies and yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet, fruity, spicy. The final is light bittery, alcoholic and dry.
