bierkoning (11544) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Malt and apricot aroma. Full bodied. Apricot flavor at first, followed by a strong maltiness and a fair deal of hops. Some licorice. Just a bit sweetish and a hint of alcohol. Lovely well balanced beer, emphasizing the fruity maltiness. Expensive ($ 5,- per half litre in the shop), but well worth the money. From tap (Arendsnest Amsterdam) the beer disappointed somewhat. Traubenzucker in the aroma. Flowery flavor, somewhat perfumed. Reasonably well hopped and seasoned, just a bit on the sweet side. I was also less satisfied with a bottle tasted in 2008. Orange color, slightly perfumed aroma of tangerine and coreander. Sweetish, perfumed spicy flavor. malt and coreander. Citrus fruit. Not unpleasant, but too perfumed for my taste.

Bottle: A bit unclear, small lacy white head; caramalt, toasted malt, some hops and coriander in the nose; quite light bodied for abeer of 6.5%; moderate, almost solid bitter-sweet flavour; slightly lingering, spicy (coriander) and nutty finish. Pleasant and good..........

Sweet (cara-)malty and nutty aroma with flowery hoppy notes and loads of spices (anise, coriander). Toast-malty and distinctively nutty taste with light spicy notes. Medium-dry, sweet-bitter, slightly toasty and nutty finish with hints of flowery hops and light spicy notes (06.I.09).

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2004
Gushing to huge brownish head; orange-amber beer. Very fruity nose, citrus-orange, Mandarine Napoleon, spicey too. Taste is spicey, as nutmeg and swet spices: cardemom, maybe cinnamon. Yet main flavour is sweet, liquorice like and citrussy. Rather thin mouthfeel for such a laden beer. Too sweet for my tooth. For the amateurs of liqueur-like beers.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 31.12.2011.
Rated on 20110802.
Hazy copper colour with a small head. Fruits, mostly apricot and citrus on the nose, also some notes of malts. Flavor is malts and apricot, notes of citrus. Something seems to be missing for this to be an enjoyable beer.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 31-12-2011
Sweetish and a bit stale perfume-like aroma with citrus. Sweet flavour too with citrus and a bit bitter aftertaste. Some candi sugar and orange peel too. Good and drinkable, but could be more refreshing.
