Thuis. Proeft heel erg de Jenever en de alcohol zweem er van, erg fruitig. Ook de dryhop is goed te proeven. Apart!! Backlog from 2015/07/31.

olio (8810) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2015
65 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Aroma is spicy and there’s a lot of toffee notes, not that fruity, maybe some ripe notes, there are some barreling effects here though I wouldn’t have guessed genever. Toffee on the flavor also, spice notes, faint vanilla, wood and subtle yeast. The genever notes from the barrels are more distinct on the flavor but it doesn’t steal the show. Carbonation is soft, somewhat sour palate with a spicy finish. A decent toffee-dominant Belgian Ale with an interesting barrel twist.

Maakun (2924) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle shared by me. Hazy golden with short lasting white head. Wow, massive juniper and Jenever up front, immediately followed by resinous hops and a rum like sweet booze character. After the really strong initial Notes there’s some sweet malts, vanilla, lemon, dough, flowers and quite some spices. Medium sweet with hoppy and spicy bitterness. Medium bodied with a bit thin feel and quite some carbonation. Massive beer for just 5.5% abv, unique and very nice but definately not for everyday.

Bottle from belgiuminabox. Pourd clear blonde, small white head. Smell is grain, sweet , oak, jenever. Taste is bit bitter, sharp yet a round ending,. Jenever is balanced to the maximum. Totally in touch with the basebeer, perfect carbo. Nice

Lilja (2543) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2014
Flaska ölföreningen 2014. Smak och doft av humle, citrus, honung, trä, bittermandel med toner av hostmedicin. Torr, sträv med lite fadd eftersmak.

Vignale (3092) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. En annorlunda blond. Spritsig och en aning spritig sina 5,5% till trots. Har nog plockat upp lite alkholsmak hos genevern och då även lite enbärsbeska, tydlig ginsmak och lite mandelkubb lätt fadd eftersmk. Ett roligt experiment som funkar helt okej men kanske lite tröttsam att dricka en stor flaska av.
