Zlotta (2268) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2016
0.25 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, bottled in December 2014. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly spicy, musty aroma of caramel, brown sugar, sweat, nuts and hints of orange jam. Sweetish-malty, spicy taste of caramel, brown sugar, nuts, cloves and orange jam, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Somewhat unround, has a cheap touch, drinkable nevertheless.

prawlie (1500) - ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle. Light fruity aroma. Malty, crystal, smooth, with a bitter finish. I found this to be pretty bland to be honest.

Golden with nice head. Nice malty brew slight sweetness reminiscent of a bock without the booziness. Light body very drinkable. Almond and roasted malts. Very drinkable surprised at how high the alcohol content is. Good beer.

0.25l bottle. Courtesy of Cristobal37. Clear amber body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, orange zest and floral hops. Taste of caramel, orange zest, a tiny bit of roasted malts and some floral hops. I could drink this all day. Not super complex, but very smooth.

Bawelt (582) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2015
Très satisfaisante. Joli bouquet entre le caramel, de belles notes fruitées (pêche/abricot) et un peu de levures. En bouche, une jolie rondeur, une belle effervescence, assez aqueuse. Peu d’amertume pour une ambrée, on part presque sue une triple.

darioklc (715) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 10, 2015
Poured out a clear, orange/amber color with a small, soapy, off-white colored head of foam. It smelled slightly funky with a sweet caramel aroma. Fruity with just enough spicy yeast notes, it had a nice sweet caramel maltiness. This is a nice Belgian style ale. It has a nice balance of spice and sweet.
