timmwillum (65) - BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2014
Fin lys klar gylden farve med hvidt blivende skum. Let krydret næse med en smule jern. Smagen er sødlig med skovbund og rigeligt med krydderi. Tilpas bitterhed for balancen. God kulsyre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (2984) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, light spiciness (coriander). Body is medium to full, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and faint metal. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, light spiciness and light metal with faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Quite typical Belgian strong ale with notes of sharp metal - lacks character. Not overly too sweet though.
