DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Half pint on tap at the brewpub. The aroma is a bit doughy with a light metallic character. Good biscuity sweetness is also there. Really nice. Mildly hazy dark amber body with a medium cream-colored head and great lacing. Wow - starts creamy, spicy, herbal, and metallic. Great malty character in the middle with a biscuity and doughy pils and vienna maltiness. Full-bodied. Finishes with a nice, herbal, nutty, hop kick. A fantastic altbier!

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
Appearance: dark brown, slightly transparent, no visible carbonation. Frothy beige head. Aroma: Very heavily of chocolate and nuts. Best chocolate smell I’ve had from a beer, actually. Palate: smooth, creamy, nice finish. Taste: quite sweet, not bitter, very savoury, hints of saltiness. Lots of chocolate, nuts, caramel. Subtle hints of coffee. This is the best altbier I’ve had yet.

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, cph.
Pours muddy, deep orange-brown, lovely, staying, frothy off-white head. Aroma is powerfully grassy, deep toasted caramel, light floral. Highish carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is top-notch, dry, bitter, toasted, milky chocolate. Super-lovely, dry mothfeel. Great.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle 341 from King&Godfree. Well balanced beer, with very fresh aroma. The nose has lychees, caramel, apricot, and hints of toast. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety and medium bodied. Amber, with a consistent frothy head.

Marsiblursi (3005) - Gцteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2011
(bottle) pours beautiful clear dark red with brown hints and a creamy, sand-colored head. The aroma is malty up front with tones of dark, grainy bread, cookies and caramelized brown sugar. Light fruity undertones. Spicy, herbal and woodsy hops in the background. Just a lovely nose. Quite creamy. The flavour is light to medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Robust, bready, caramelly and cookie-like malt alongside spicy and woodsy hops. The mouthfeel is creamy and round with a light to medium carbonation. Toffee and noble bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied. Wow, just wow...

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 6, 2011
Состав: вода, солод, пшеница, хмель, дрожжи. Это пиво, появившееся в декабре 2010 года, «узаконило» давнюю дружбу пивоварни Dieu Du Ciel! с Квебекским фондом фауны rescousse.org («Спасение»), занимающимся охраной исчезающих видов животных. Пиво названо именем фонда, а росомаха на этикетке, талантливо нарисованная «придворным» художником пивоварни Янником Броссо, является одним из приоритетных животных в благородной деятельности фонда. Кроме того, пивоварня отчисляет в фонд некоторую сумму денег от продажи каждой бутылки Rescousse (уточнил: 11 центов). Итак, альтбир – старинный немецкий сорт верхового пива, «бродящего» при низких температурах, но в экстремальной североамериканской интерпретации. Первое ощущение это атомный хмель, обжигающий нёбо и проникающий в носоглотку, под кожу и ногти. Потом он успокаивается и занимает приличествующее ему место на второстепенной дороге, но при каждом глотке грубо напоминает о своем присутствии. Букет успокаивается и начинают выглядывать хлебно-карамельные и пряные (кориандр?) нотки. Что-то почти незаметное цитрусовое на острие ножа, что-то солодовое... Очень округлое и теплое впечатление от этого пива, несмотря на постоянно выёживающийся хмель.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Well deserved high rating for the style, this is a great altbier, clean and pure. This brewery rarely disappoints, and this is no exception. The beer pours copper, halfway clear in color with a white head. The aroma brings some nutty, sweet chocolate toffee malts and with the hops having settled to the back. The flavor brings smooth pure malt flavor with some light sweetness resembling the subtle hop presence on a perfect body, so smooth on the palate overall.
