Benzai (8395) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Dark red / brown colored beer. Fair smell. Short, dry finish. Even though it’s 8.4%ABV the beer misses body, it’s weak.

This is surely a Belgian Strong Ale??? Deep red-brown colour. Aroma has sweet red fruits, syrup, jam. Flavour is similar. Low carbonation. Quite silky but also a bit thin.

33 cl bottle.This one 6.6 % Abv. No yeast in bottom. Reddish amber colour with a rocky but fast disappearing head. Sweet aroma of grain, caramel and malt. Nice flavour of berries and malt, but overall a good beer but not great.

SHIG (3590) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle with a spooky design: Poured a reddish-orange with a off white color head. The aroma was sweet and hints of cinniman to my nose. The flavor was very sweet candy malt with a berry or fruit finish.
Earlier Rating: 6/3/2007 Total Score: 3.4
Bottle: First off the bottle presentation is awesome and nice to look at, with all the lines as writing in white which brings out the red. Poured a red amber with a thin white head. Fruity sorta cherry aroma. The taste was sweet berry malt flavor, very candy and lasting finish. The best Gordon I have had from the finest series!

Skinnyviking (7069) - 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.

Maria (10164) - 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.
