Foerdifuxx (220) - Franconia, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2015
Dark red coloured beer with a small, brownish, short-lasting head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, plums, natural and fresh herbal undertones, dark cake, light alcohol, dash of lemon juice. Roasted malt and fruitiness in taste, bit waterish. Toffee and sth. what the goat weed could be in finish, dry overall. Less sweet than i expected. Medium body, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Too much alcohol for too few aromas, in my opinion, nothing to enhance here.

Étrange cette Betty. Verse un rouge brun plutôt plat, sans col. Sur la bouteille, rien, pas de style. Juste bio et de déguste dans un verre à vin comme indication. Cette Betty m aura plutôt séduit. Un petit truc de mélange de trappiste avec une Rodenbach. Garde chaud dans la gorge, petit côté cerise sauerkirsch, bière de Noël. Difficile à dire. Enfin, à boire en hiver. Déception se trouve donc du côté apparence, bof, malgré une belle couleur et de la longueur en bouche courte hormis l alcool qui reste chaudement présent. Sinon bel équilibre. Palette agréable fruité, sucré, caramélisé, épicé, agrumes.

How great is this, local bar Why not @Dudelange serving craft beers. Very nice bottle with an artwork reminding me of seventies hardrock covers... First sip caramel, toffees, red fruits some alcohol shines through but overall it’s a really nice beer.

Alengrin (4519) - BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Somewhat idiosyncratic Austrian beer with irregular, loosely structured, light beige head and hazy bronze colour with amber hue. Aroma of toasted bread, overripe plums, flowers, some banana, redcurrant, dates, freshly fermented farmland. Estery, fruity, sweetish onset (fig, raisin) with soft sourish edge, some dried banana, fluffy mouthfeel, smooth caramelly malt sweetness becoming a bit toasted in the end paired with mild herbal hop bitterishness, some powdery yeastiness and a spicy flavour which I assume comes from the Epimedium plant apparently used in this. The alcohol provides a bit of warmth but I would never have guessed this is a 9%+ beer. Nor would I have guessed this is made in Austria, this feels a lot like a spiced Belgian winter ale...

Thanks Mladen! Shared with the others. Dark amber-red body with an off white small head. Malty, caramelly, raisiny aroma, nice enough. Taste... yeah, caramell, herbal notes, nutty, nicely grainy. Dry finish. Well, definitely good for the strength/style. Couldn’t sense that herb but still... maybe it would’ve been more effective if I drank the entire bottle. :D Couldn’t find any flaws with it and the ABV is very well hidden.

(Gusswerk Horny Betty) Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Beerhunter111,thanks! Served into a tulip, ABV 9.2% Deep red to chestnut brown colour on the body, clear, with almost two full fingers of thick, light beige head on top. Average retention. Aroma of caramel, light toffee, herbs, old wood. Taste is herbal, malts, caramel, well hidden alcohol. Medium thin body, carbonation on the low side. Drinks okay, nothing I’ll remember for long though.

A dark amber beer with a fruity flavour at first. Some peach and banana in the palate. Light alcoholic sweetness in the finight. I miss some more bitterness or presence of hops. Still enjoyable.
