Erzengel (3974) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
Dunkelbernsteinfarben, süßlich-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-würzig, mild und zum Hauptteil schnell ins alkoholische umschlagend. Scharf-herb mit penetrant süßlicher Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist ist lang, penetrant-komisch und sehr alkoholisch.
Gar nicht meins... 2/9/2/1

Leighton (12231) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle shared at Kasteelhof with Colin and Bruce - Cassel, France. Bottled as ’Blonde Cuivree’. Pours clear gold with a creamy, off-white head. Huge bready malt aroma and lightly farty. Medium to big sweet flavor with sugary bread, cereal and caramel. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Very sweet to wrap with lots more sugary bread. Meh. Not too drinkable.

Bottle from a French supermarket. Pours amber and sparkling with a decent cream head. The taste is spicy and a bit fruity. Some caramel in the aftertaste. OK

Alengrin (2592) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Classic bière de garde from the region known as French Flanders. Finely structured, snow white head, orange blonde colour with protein flakes. Aroma of orange, banana, caramel, cinnamon, liqueur, peat and a smoky hint which they claim comes from fermentation. Sweet fruity taste, bit cake-like, drying up in the middle and finishing in herbal hops but also badly hidden, astringent alcohol.

Armadill0 (284) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Golden, clear. Big quickly vaporating white head. Aroma has grain, yeast and wood. Taste has grain, some fruit, yeast and wood. On the bitter side as a whole. Well rounded but lacks character. Basically a beefed up laher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelgoldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, fruchtig, Banane. Geschmack malzig süß, leicht metallisch, dunkle reife Früchte, insgesamt aber zu metallisch.

Bottled as "Bière blonde cuivrée" in Douai, France. Pours as a slightly cloudy amber with a frothy head which persists for some time. Slightly malty aroma with a sweetish taste. Slight note of "orange confits". Not the best beer that I have tasted!
