3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 Bottle at Kolding Ølmesse. Pours a slightly murky brown body with a nice beige head. Caramel, fruityness and a pleasant hoppyness in the aroma. Caramel, sweetness, a little roasted maltyness and a nice bitterness in the flavor, finishing caramel-sweet and slightly alcoholic. Full, effervescent, sweetish and warming mouthfeel. Sure a beer one could drink more often. Rating: 6-4-7-4-14-3.5. 080229
Bottle, as Briels Geuzenbier. Unclear, brown body with a small, off-white head. Ginger, caramel, heather, cardamom and alcohol on the nose. It’s warming on the palate, full-bodied and sort of sticky. Caramel, roasted malts, nuts and spices in the flavor. Some alcohol flavor too, especially in the rather sweet finish. There’s also a touch of licorice. A quite nice one, I like that the spicyness isn’t dominating. 110621

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
30 cl bottle. Pours unclear brown with a fine creamy head & lacings. Aroma is very malty & spicy - coriander & caramel dominates the aroma. Again very aggressive herbal/coriander surrounds the tastebuds inclding liquorice.. Body is full & creamy. A bit of warmth & sweetness. Very well balanced & well made!

Bottle. High creamy off-white and lasting head leaving good looking curtains. Hazy dark and fruity aroma. Strong fruity flavor with a good deal of hops bitternes, a heavy shot of coriander and notes of alcohol. Low carbonation. Long bitter sweeter aftertaste. Nice surprise.
