ClubGonzo (5226) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light golden body with a large white head. Nose is strong Belgian estery notes; banana, white sugar, red fruits and hints of straw, grains and honey. Taste is white sugar, grains, red fruits, banana and hints of grapes, herbs and straw. Medium body, high carbonation. A nice enough beer, but I don’t know exactly what makes this so special and "historical" - to me, this tastes pretty much like any ol’ Belgian strong ale in the modern tradition. Still nice though.

brianza_ale (202) - ITALY - MAY 24, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 75cl in teku. Pours a huge, white, frothy and rocky head; light orange to golden colour, cloudy. Smells spicy, yeasty, floral, leaves, sort of "vegetation in spirng", fresh and bit tripel like. Tastes wheat and grainy, malty, fruity/lemon, spicy again, belgian sugary; I would say both medium level sweetness and bitterness, both very smooth and very well blended, very light tartness. Medium+ bodied and creamy; dry finish, with spices and some light hoppiness. A very solid and well made brew, characterized by spices, wheat and obviously the typical yeast. Great balance and drinkability

PartyFowle (942) - - MAY 7, 2015
Draft. Perfectly clear light straw hue with a thin, one finger tab of pale white that fizzles away after a few seconds. Pear in the nose, very sweet. Juniper, earthy notes and a hint of biscuits as well. Sweet in flavor. Soil, a little floral sweetness, orange blossom, lavender. A hint of bitterness hits at the swallow. More like a tripel in flavor -- this has a bit more sweetness than your average gruit. Medium body with a soft fizzle of CO2. Delicious but a little sweet. Probably not a traditional gruit, but still mighty tasty.
