33cl bottle from el corte ingles. This beer has a great golden orange color with a nuce fluffy white head. On the nose it has a tropical fruit, citrus and slight caramel aroma, with a very distinctive Bergamot aroma. Medium body, medium sweet, bitterness on the lighter side. Short flavour finish, with a lingering subtle bite. Overall, a great beer, very well balance, very drinkable. However, I was expecting some kind of "earl.grey IPA", which this is not. Nonetheless, a great beer!

Ambrée trouble, effervescence faible, col beige moyen et crémeux. Malts cara et pils assez bien présents, suivi de quatre houblons donnant une amertume légèrement fruitée, les fruits de la bergamote n’étant ni trop, ni trop peu présents, plutôt ronde en bouche. Mmmmhhhh...

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Consumed whilst watching the WK 2014 – Belgium vs. South-Korea. Bottled on 17/02/2014. Pours a gorgeous pomegranate red, radiant ruby with a creamy beige head that laces nicely. Nose is a mix of sweet sticky pine resin, aromatic tree oil / sap, very bitter (bergamot) citrus peel, esoteric oil, mix of very sticky sweet with very raw floral / citrus peel bitterness. Taste is that same mix of sweet burned brown sugar, tree sap / aromatic oil with very bitter (bergamot) citrus peel, floral, very lingering, dries the mouth out, caramel, huge pine resin, very raw, odd mix of bitter floral and almost cough syrup-like sweetness, burned sugar, faint smoke & almost alcohol in the back. Bit extreme for me but quite unique. Body has the same sticky aromatic oil quality as the rest, interesting stuff.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy amber with off-white head. Lovely malty aroma. Very nicely balanced taste. Freshness. Dry finish. Lovely.

Bottle from Beergeeku. Pours Amber with a cream coloured head. Aroma of sweet malt, pine and Bergamot. I loved the way this tastes. Sweetness and Pine in delicious union with enough Bergamot to make it interesting. I’ve aways liked Bergamot whenever I’ve had it in beer. Brings to mind thoughts of Earl Grey. Really delicious.

Nose is citrus, grapefruit. Pours quite dark. Taste is very balanced, hops obviously. Good, but not special.

Fresh aroma with citrus, wheat, sweet pale malts, grassy hop, amarillo. Sweet. A bit too sweet perhaps. Shorter aftertaste than expected. Interesting and I like the idea of a bergamot fruit beer, but it needs to be drier to prevent the sugary aftertaste. (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

Mi aspettavo meglio, ma resta una birra più che discreta. Molto maltata, le note citriche del bergamotto s’insinuano nel sorso rinfrescando e stuzzicando. Poco amara.
