rand (1300) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bouteille 33 clé de la Cave du Vénitien - La Roche-en-Ardenne (B). Brune à belle mousse ocre et fine. Nez fruité, vineux comme une Brune des Flandres, rôti, note houblonnée. La bouche est relevée, torréfiée, café, boisé, épices, sirop de Liège et compote de prune. Notes acidulées-astringentes délicates et de houblon. Une bière entre deux styles, rafraîchissante et encore plus complexe et ronde lorsqu’elle est moins froide.

Benzai (8800) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2012
33cl bottle @ home shared with Thompson.Slightly hazy deep dark red color, small to medium sized light brown head that lasts for quite a while. Smell malts, herbs or spices, soap, perfume: just a really weird mix. Taste malts, herbs or spices again, some sweetness, slightly sour hints. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Thompson (340) - - MAY 31, 2012
Average beige/white head. nice dark red/brown colour. Very sharp smell maybe herbs also somewhat sour. Taste also gives clues to herbs, reminds me of oregano from my local pizarria. overall not to bad colour is great just to much hints of herbs or spices. Drank at the lair od the evil beer baron benzai.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2012
Bottle @ home. Darker brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off white head. Rather spicy (warm winter spices). Full creamy palate. Finish is strong spicy, malty slightly roasted and somewhat alcoholic. Lots of flavour. Nice.
