Mainuh_man (169) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear pale with big, fluffy white head that lingers. Unique aromas that are sweet and fruity:. Apple and pear, alcohol, vanilla, tobacco. Sweet vanilla up front with cereal grain, slowly morphs into a subtle, herby bitterness that cuts the malt, finishing with warm alcohol in the throat. Medium body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel; really very smooth drinking. Overall, some interesting things going on with this beer. On the sweeter side, but overall balances well and really nice mouthfeel.

Bozo_skeleton (520) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 22, 2014
Ambrée au collet généreux. Aromes fruités tirant sur l’aigre. En bouche elle ressemble plus à une belge classique avec sa flaveur de levure typique.

martjoobolut (789) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 23.08.15. Pours clear golden with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is very sweet, sour notes, fruits, malt, alcohol and metallic notes. Taste is very sweet, fruits, malt, yeast, and some spicy notes. Finish has a touch of bitterness and hints of alcohol. Alcohol is rather well hidden. Carbonation is fizzy. Body feels rather light, but not watery. Overall: too much carbonation and too sweet for my taste.

BlackHaddock (3885) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
16th May 2014, a Westvleteren chalice was chosen to pour the 33cl bottle into. BBD 17th Nov 2014, so 8.5% ABV. Exceedingly lively, only a third of the bottle got into the chalice, a huge white head prevented anymore beer getting in without spillage. The second pour saw the clear golden body grow in size, the snowy white head still very large. The third pour added to both the beer level and the head, the sediment staying in the base of the bottle, so still a clear beer! The nose is subdued by the coolness, some yeastiness and herbal/floral notes appear along with bread and biscuity malts as it warmed in the chalice. It tastes similar to what the smell eventually expresses: slightly malty with a yeasty base with a herbal/fruity feel. The finish is bittering and mildly citrus. I thought about putting this into a Duvel glass, glad I didn’t: this is a different sort of beer to a Duvel.

Goudkleurig met een dikke laag wit schuim. Ruikt lekker, hoppig, citrus. Smaakt prima, lekker bitter. Gruut met hop?
