Bière immonde au gout chimique. Le gout speculoos est très présent. Aucun intéret. Je n’ai pas réussi à terminer mon verre.

Icedwarf (798) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Geel bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet met speculaas aroma die chemisch overkomt. Combinatie is apart en naar mijn mening minder geslaagd.

Travlr (16394) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Amy, thank you ma’am! Smells and tastes like oatmeal raisin cookies. An interesting concept, but not for a beer, sorry. Couldn’t finish it.

Tayeth (507) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Geruch kräftig nach Zimt und Vanille. Geschmack dann sehr extrem, Zimt Vanille, Karamell und Aschenbecher. Zudem relativ stärker Alkohol Geschmack. Brennt im Hals.

Alengrin (3360) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Export version of the infamous biscuit beer Ultra de Noël, with a thick, moussy, yellowish white head and orange blonde, vaguely misty robe. Sweet aroma, opulently decorated with biscuit, plum loaf, gingerbread, caramel candy, banana, overripe peaches, ginger powder, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, dried orange peel and a sharp meaty smell reminiscent of meatloaf or even chicken broth. Very sweet taste of honey and ’speculaas’, caramel syrup, soft and mellow mouthfeel, sourish accent, sweetish spices, medium carbonation, finishing a bit dryish due to not too well-hidden alcohol. Original but clearly not to everybody’s taste.

mikske79 (1310) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 6, 2014
Een speculaas-bier met een zeer uitdrukkelijke smaak, veel mensen zullen dit niet lusten, maar ikzelf vond het zalig.

Tselloufc88 (240) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Aroma is of yeasty, and a strong Heinz cream of tomato soup. Not exactly appetising. Taste is of chocolate, tonnes of cinnamon. Far too sweet! Pretty poor. Sickly. I couldn’t finish this one.

JefVerstraete (2125) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle @ De Zytholoog, Adegem. Brown colour with a lot of big particles (cookie?), some white foam. Soft carbonation. Very sweet aroma of cookies, ginger bread, speculoos, cinnamon, brown sugar and spices. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. Strange beer.

foxo82 (809) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle at The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Biscuit aroma - unsurprisingly. Does indeed taste like a cookie - or at least one of those biscuits that is served with a coffee. There is some bitterness, which slightly offsets an otherwise very sweet (obviously) cinnamon and sugar experience. Rich and flavoursome.

gueuze (639) - - JUL 16, 2014
Geruch nach Anis, Zimt und Desinfektionsmittel. Im Geschmack selber zu flach. Kaum Bitter zum Ende. Bleibt die Zimtbombe. Zu viel davon.
