Lore (1765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2015
brown colour, moderate sized sized beige-ish head; aroma of fruits (mostly plum and some apple), candy sugar, hints of vanilla and minimal alcohol; taste of brown sugar, yeast, dried fruits some bitterness and well hidden alcohol; isn’t it the same beer as St. Bernardus Pater?

jamesie1857 (1780) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
330ml bottle - Pours a hazy medium brown colour with medium layer of quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is light, sweet and brown sugary, with hints of grapes and raisins. Flavour and mouthfeel light and a bit watery, but also very carbonated in the mouth. Slightly tart and bitter with some stewed fruits and toffee flavours. Overall, pretty good.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En av de första belgare jag provade någon gång i början på 2000-talet. ddags att se hur den stått sig. Djup rödbrun färg med tjockt krämigt bestående skum. Söt doft av torkad frukt, marsipan, men kanske också lite metall. Stor, söt maltig kropp, sött mörkt bröd, rostade nötter, värmande alkohol, jäst, lite kryddigt med en lätt och lite pepprig beska på slutet. Stor, söt och god, en liten metalisk ton stör något annars riktigt trevlig.

Bottle @ Biergasthof Schiffner. Mahogany brown clear, off white big bubbled head. Fruity lactic acid nose with a farmyardy hint. Gently sour in taste with a stewed stone fruit middle and gentle tart finish. Mouthwatering and utterly tasty.

33 cl bottle at home. Ruddy-brown colour, creamy head. Little aroma, scalded sugar and fruit. Taste is sweet to start with a nice, deep bitterness to follow. Lively on the tongue, rich and with a slight tang. Very drinkable.
