Bottle, many thanks Bob Cavanagh! Hazy amber colour, white foam. Fruity aroma with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Not bad, but nothing special.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy, bright amber coloured beer with sweet toffee and red fruity flavours, earthy and peppery hop notes with orange marmalade and vanilla on the finish. Excellent!

spacecube (841) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
330 ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown with a white head. The nose is malty, very caramel with wheat in the nose. Smooth caramel and pleasant malt texture, with a good hop bitter balance, the belgian yeast flavours take a back seat here, but they are there in the background. Nice beer.

This one was more interesting in concept than execution. I actually drink sake a lot but did not notice any sake flavors in this. Some aspects of tannins, but mainly in the mouthfeel. It didn’t stand alone as a belgian strong ale as I’d hoped, but still alright. Caramelly and a bit hoppy without being bitter or pungent at all. Anyway, was an OK strong ale, but as a speciality beer it did not deliver what was promised at least to my tongue.
