Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Holy fucking grail of lagers big up to Andy pants for the tip off. Holy fuck this is slamming. Beautiful transparant copper body with a light off white lace quickly diminishing. Aromatically a soft pear and floral tone. Hints of agave and fresh laundry sheet like freshness. A total pleassure to sip on. Very soft blanket of carbonation. Light apple crisps, pear tones very light hay and fruit puch notes quicky give way to a juicy soft spicy hop tone. Nice tongue tigling spice with a touch of lavender grass and spice. Astonushing in its freshness n glory. I think i’m in love.

Oakes (14884) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
Cloudy med amber. Thin head. Phenols, paint on the nose. Quite sweet and a fairly pronounced alcohol character. Ok if you like strong quasi-Belgiany things.

Echon (306) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
Amber and medium-bodied. Rich malty aroma and flavour, with dried fruit and spicy phenols. Full sweet taste with light bitterness. The closest association would be sweet strong ales or even quadrupels. Overall, this is a great beer. It is very belgian and not as unique as their other beers.

Keskijuotava. Näistä ei kyllä hajun puolesta voi hyvää sanoa. Maku on mukava ja suutuntuma varsinkin. Voi näihin tottua.

iggynelix (132) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2016
On tap at unos in sampler. Clear golden with a thin head. This is a reasonable brew. .maybe I’m missing the context.

TET (2490) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 10, 2016
A dark yellow with an orange notes, a head is medium and blond. Aroma is unique and interesting, fruitness, fruit candies, marzipan and mandarin. Taste has fruitness, mandarin, herbs with notes of Sorachi Ace, some bitterness is balancing the medium sweetness. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation. Interesting beer with a great aroma. Fruitful with herbs.

Orange and honey are the immediate elements on the tongue and the nose, medium think in the mouth. Alcohol is present!

Indeed special beer. Lot of earthiness and if asked I would say the most Japanese beer so far. Sorachi ace is amazing

Nonshaugen (370) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2016
55 cl, bottle conditioned. Golden orange, thin off-white head, nice level of carbonation, loads of floating sediments. Sweet and fruity aroma. Mouthfeel is crammed with sweet notes and carbonation. Flavours are mostly caramel and toffee up front, but also floral and hoppy. All in all it’s a bit too sweet and sugary, and I don’t think I will buy it again.
