Martinus (3344) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of cheese and malts. Light bitter flavour, hops, and quite a bit of off-flavours, fusel oils and medicine. Finish light hops and cheese.
Not sure what was the matter with this bottle, but it wasn’t really pleasurable I’m afraid. Might warrant a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Shared by sebletitje. Thanks, Seba!)

Comment: Bouteille de 330ml embouteillée le 23 juin 2011 et bue lors de la dégustation de la révolte estudiantine.
Description: Bière ambrée avec une belle tête crémeuse de mousse beige. Cette mousse est durable. Le nez est composé de caramel fruité et de houblon herbeux. La bouche est de houblon amer. La levure fruitée donne une touche agréable. Cette bière est agréable malgré son âge.

_angst_ (3217) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy off-white head that clings to the glass and leaves some lacing on it while slowly dissipating. Smell is sweet with sweet fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, alcohol and some hints of peaches and citrus. Taste is malty, bitter and slightly metallic with minerals, resin, dandelions and pine. Finish is dry and very bitter. Weird one this one, not sure what I think…
