Euphemos (1) - Tampere, - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Cloudy amber color with a medium-sized white head. Aromas of wild strawberry and spices. Flavor consists mostly of spices, caramel and citrus, more fruity notes can be found when the rest of the yeast is poured into the glass. Moderately hopped. Aftertaste is somewhat metallic due to the type of water used by the brewery.

corkyrory66 (705) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Bière artisanale ambrée de 7 % abv. Blé, candi et épices dans le chaudron de la sorcière. Couleur ambre miellé. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes verticales. Mousse blanc cassé à beige clair bien crémeuse. Arômes de malts grillés, houblon, cassonade fine, prune bleue, croûte de pain. 1ère bouche souple, mais à lr prise curieuse sur du malt tronqué par des épices et des herbes. Arrière-bouche assez plate. 2ème bouche un peu mieux intégrée malt/herbes. Arrière-bouche un peu liquoreuse. 3ème avec une belle évolution sur un côté un peu vineux. Arrière-bouche agréable. La longueur donne un beau malt grillé, des herbes de la sorcière. Les jambes sont marquées. La levure est fine, précise, belle ligne. L’alcool est insuffisant pour soutenir le propos. La finale retombe aux premières bouches, plus aqueuse. CONCLUSION : une bière faible sur les 1ères bouches et la finale. Recette à revoir avec la sorcière, mais elle semble avoir tout son temps ...

BeerViking (2689) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Touches of sour cherry and earthy wood on the nose. Candy sugar, brandy notes, hints of spice and a light funkiness in the body. Funky bitter-sweet finish.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
De Bie’s spiced dubbel, since 1992. An ale with a warm bronze colour and fruity, caramelly and sweetish character, maize fortunately subdued in the taste, spices clearly present. A beer with an own personality, as any good Belgian ale should have, though not my personal cup of tea.

Een lekker biertje met een wat speciale smaak, maar mij kon het wel bekoren.
