Smooth malt Flavors of this Belgian-style abbey ale are complimented by traditional imported ingredients. A slightly spicy and complex flavor makes this European celebration-style beer unique and refreshing.

Bottle from VP CC Vest enjoyed at home
Copper / brown, beige head that falls down quite fast. Smell of marzipan, yeast esters, cherries and raisins, quite fruity, caramel, malts and hints of spices. Heavy sweet, alot of esters, fruity flavors, a little boozy kick, a fantastic malty body which delivers awsome flavors. Spices slides in after a while. Moderate bitter finish. Veyr nice!

Habanero (3698) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2015
Bottled. Pours orangy amber with a small, beige to off-white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and ripe fruit. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with some alcohol and a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale, but not at all as complex as described. 🌟🌟🌟

ClubGonzo (5088) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy deep nougat-hued orange body with a small white head. Nose is banana, candy sugar, caramel, white sugar and hints of clove, cinnamon, wet grass and pepper. Taste is caramel, white sugar, spices, clove, mild banana and hints of toffee, bready malts and alcohol. Full body, high carbonation. A real "big Belgian" with enough esters and candi sugar tones to kill a small Ardenne village. Bold and quite tasty, but not too subtle. A nice brew, nevertheless.

Cool_Bond (2191) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Yeast, honey, citrus and very bitter. Heavy bitterness not good at all. Fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. A beer that does not suit me at all. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Koelschtrinker (15597) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 24, 2015
Süßlich herber, insgesamt stimmiger Antrunk. Deutlich fruchtig, angenehme Kräuternoten. Die milde Karbonisierung passt perfekt, harmonisch, vollmundig. Die Kräuternoten steigen, geringe Herbe. Etwas Vanille. Gut! 9/11/12/12/11/12

Pinball (11793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2015
Never had a chance to rate this, and then suddenly kihoskh had it on its shelves.. fantastic.. cloudy golden, smooth small white head. spicy aroma, malty, yeasty, yellow fruity notes as a blonde, also a strange sourish note to it, which i am looking forward to find out what the tasting source of, is.. or.. whatever.. flavor is malty, faint yellow fruity notes, sweet caramel, very velvety in the feel, tastes like way less than 10.5% abv. if blind tasted i would’ve guessed blonde or perhaps some barley wine with a belgian twist. Flavor is pretty good, and as the beer appears a lot easier to drink than it’s strength it is pretty dangerous. Normally i prefer belgian beer brewed in belgium, but this one is a pretty neat example of foreign attempts at belgian beer, it has added a twist of elegance and un-wildness, but retained most of the flavors. Good stuff from ohio
