Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy off-whte head that lingers with decent lacing. Interesting, and different aromas on this: apricot, nutmeg, caramel . Complex flavor profile: starts with yeast and some herby hop flavor, goes to caramel in middle, then to a resiny hop finish that transitions to bitter yeast flavors and cloying sugars. Medium body with an slick mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer with a lot of different flavors and aromas to offer.

MonsterMagnet (384) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle, bb 1-2015. Pours dark ruby with an off white head. Aroma: chestnut, rye, dark bread, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, liquorice root, brown sugar, herbal, even a little floral. I love the aroma, there?s so much in there. Taste: dark bread, rye, juniper, sage, raisins, more spices, herbs, vanilla. Heavy sweet, light bitterness, medium body, soft creamy texture, nice finish with lingering herbs, spices and grains. Very nice, and I love the aroma. Would?ve been even better if slightly less sweet.

Ulysse (240) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
red, brown, tan foam, hazy, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, This beer’s got a lovely foam giving it an attractive appearance. Unfortunately, you need to strain your nose to find an almost inexistant smell. The texture and body are too weak.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
’Koyt’ is an old Dutch name for ’gruitbier’ and etymologically the same as "keyte", the name Strubbe uses for a few of its beers as well. This one was brewed in Belgium some years ago and revives that mediëval tradition, allegedly not hopped though I find that hard to believe, bronze-coloured beer with complex sweetness, spice accents and bitterish finish.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a clear red/brownish colour with decent carbonation. Strong grainy aroma, some yeasty and malty notes there. Taste is rather tangy, bit of sourness and some bitterness, not much there. Goes down smooth, thin bodied.
