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.

Alengrin (1333) - 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.

Entre l’amrée et la blonde, mousse abondante. Nez de sucre candy, caramel, levure, raisin sec. Gout très sucré, le caramel et la levure dominent.

Beerhunter111 (7193) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

Really a thick flavour, if that is enjoyable, I have no clue. On some occasions I love this beer, next to a BBQ or sitting in my backyard in the sun. Still one of those beers that you can’t put a name on it! The herbs are surely there. On some occasions this beer is so untastefull, I just want to throw it away. I have a hate-love affair with this one. That tells me something as well.

Belle couleur ambrée, goût qui tiens bien en bouche. Elle est légère mais sensation d’une bière plus forte. Belle et agréable surprise
