alla spina ambrata schiuma media non molto persistente sentori fruttati caramello live tostatura etilico fastidioso anche in bocca compromette tutta la bevuta piccola nota di liquirizia forse perche l’alcool brucia tutta

Clear deep amber with medium off white head. Sweet caramelish aroma with grainy notes. Very sweet and permurmed flavor with caramel notes. Ends sweet with warming alcohol.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
Canned, thanks Björn. Pours out in a clear pale amber colour with a low white foam. Quite sharp aroma of alcohol and red apples with nutty undertones. medium-bodied with strong notes of salt, alcohol, rubber and toasted nuts. Dryish finish of faint toasted malts, nuts and hot peppery alcohol.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
Tasting at my place. Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of malt and apple and the flavour has light notes of malt, apple, candy sugar and light citrus. The finish is dry. Considering the style this is quite nice.

Can (BB 06/2009)
Amber-reddish clear color, not much head. Aroma has malts, metal, caramel, cardboard and barnyard (just after pouring). Sweetish, almost syrapy strong lager - apple-like fruityness mixed with crystal sugar. A bit grainy. Finish has harsh maltyness and caramel. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Sweet, bareable strong lager. As a Belgian beer, nothing to speak about, but in its style, ok.

yespr (36972) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
50 cL can. Pours clear orange to amber with a collapsing light brown head. Light spiced to herbal aroma, mild malt note and light alcohol note in addition. Flavour is light spiced towards perfumed and sweet. Light fruity too. Ends light alcohol warming spiced.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Can. High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear light red body. Light berries aroma. Relatively carbonated with a fair amount of hops bitterness and some dusty notes. Berries are present but the overall impression is bitterness. Short aftertaste.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Sampled in Nancy, France: poured a beauituful red with large tan head into a thistle. Aroma was malty and bready. Flavor was fruity with malty overtones, and a soft breadiness. Carmel and slight roast mixed in. medium bodied. On tap this wasn’t a bad beer, and it didn’t seem very lager like at all?

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 Lovely red colour with a respectable head. Caramel malt aroma with some alcohol. Sweet flavour, also with caramel and alcohol, nothing else going on really. When I drink beer with this high an abv I expect some flavour but overall this is simply two-dimensional and bland.
