Gorgosh (421) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2014
Bara namnet får smaklökarna att slå frivolter och alkoholhalten får hjärnan att sluta fungera under några sekunder. Inte för styrkans skulle utan snarare av förvåning över en belgare som inte ens når upp till 5 procent. I slutändan tar det ena ut det andra visar det sig. Close but no cigar.

Finn (6091) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Drukket på RV124 7 Feb 14. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Veldig høyt luftig skum som etterlater litt lacing. Bra maltaroma med innslag av krydder. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er anonym. Litt kvalmende. Litt tørr i avslutninga.

Pours a hazy golden body with a thick white head. Fresh aroma with a very well balanced taste. A lovely beer :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (5960) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle [BBE 2007]. Murky, dark amber colour with average, frothy to creamy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head; a white layer remains. Sweetish malty, fruity and yeasty spicy aroma, minimally peppery and herbal overtones. Taste is spicy yeasty, slightly peppery, I know this taste, but what is it? Reminds me of... Marmite!, yes, lots of Marmite; insipid, flat carbonation (no wonder). Very interesting experience, in no way sour, but quite different from a fresh original for sure.

Klar lys strågul farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt, honning, frukt, gjær og krydder. Smak av malt, honning, frukt, gjær og krydder. God og lettdrukket med bra karbonering. Vinmonopolet.

Tobiasoe (70) - NORWAY - FEB 8, 2014
Big fluffy white head holding well over hazy pale yellow beer. Medium minus aroma intensity offering yeasty and hoppy citric aromas. Nothing off there. Light bodied and thin on the attack, quite little flavour. Dry with grassy and immature apple flavours. No development on the midpalate but the finish provides a somewhat lasting refreshment. Initially promising, too bad about the hollow body, gets remembered as a mediocre thirst-quencher..
