bartlebier (2656) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
20cl bottle, minimalni trvanlivosti 03/2015, courtesy of motelpogo and mowbeer the Australo-Cali-Bohemian beerduo, dekuje. Shared at Outre-Rhin tasting, making for a very international trade-to-palate route indeed. - - Umami-sweet nose of oil-sautéd brown mushrooms and white porto, muscat grape. Spiced Martini Bianco and vermouth in taste, wild honey. Manages to remain dryish like an older dessert wine. Quite unique and full of great yeast textures and nuances.

bastarda (220) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2015
kindly shared by bartlebier, thanks a lot! Thourougly inviting aromas of plumwine with some herbal, also blackcurrant edges and sweet caramel morphing into nashi pear gelee. Taste brings up more caramel, creme brulee, sweet martini, white grapes; interesting carbonation, almost Brausestäbchen-fizziness, a bit strange, but artful in this context

Jamedra (699) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 17, 2015
Láhev 200 ml .Aroma je jemné, jasně sladové s nádechem bílého pečiva průběžně se začínají otevírat tóny ovocného likéru. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je měděná. Chuť je lahodně sladká, má příjemný nádech medu s ovocným dotekem a lehkým komponentem karamelu, kávy a kakaa v pozadí jsou dále cítit oříšky, finiš je nehořký palčivě alkoholový ale dobře korespondující se zbytkem chuti. V ústech pivo plně, má slabší říz a opravdu si nejsem jist jestli se dá nazvat dobře pitelným v rámci lehkých doušků se tato jedna láhev dá vypít s přehledem i přes svůj výrazný obsah alkoholu, tak by sedalo říct ano je dobře pitelné.

JefVerstraete (2125) - Ghent, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Many thanks mmahut! Dark amber, no foam. Syrupy texture. Nose of caramel, stone fruit, and lots of honey. Is this a barley wine or a mead? Very sweet, but in a positive way. More liquor than beer. Good.
