Eens een ander biertje. Frisse fruitige smaak met bittere afdronk. Schuim houdt niet lang waardoor het uiterlijk minder was.

Verrassend bier. Frisse smaak. Duidelijk een ander bier met een nieuw smaakvolle. Schuim houdt niet lang, presenteert daardoor minder goed. Maar alles bij elkaar zijn geld zeker waard.

JefVerstraete (2040) - Ghent, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle as a gift. Murky amber orange colour, thin layer of white foam. Soft carbonation. Fruity aroma with notes of peach and prunes, brown sugar, alcohol and armagnac. Medium sweet, light bitter. Well balanced. Good beer.

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
Flaske delt på RBHD hos Asle Bjørn: aroma av (u)friske bringebær og rips, tilsatt en liten dæsj parfyme. Sprudlende frisk og deilig, og de 12 vitaminenhetene er godt kamuflert i bærsødmen. Men førsteinntrykket går fort over i ufriskhet. Denne må nytes raskt og i god avkjølt tilstand, altså en kjapp aperitiff. Ingen armagnacaroma, men jeg kan med velvilje ane et hint av nevnte brennevin helt i slutten.

abemorsten (3145) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared bottle. Clear orange golden body with a white veil across. Light baby pooh, raspberries, red currant and jam on the nose. Sharp carbonation. Berries, syrupy, alco warmth.

Sigmund (5695) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Orange to cognac colour, large head, slightly off-white. Weird aroma of stale and rotting berries, some oak in the background. Stale berries (esp. raspberries), oak and armagnac in the flavour, warming mouthfeel. The alcohol is not well hidden. Disappointing.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
gunnar (6342) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours weak cloudy dark golden/amber with a tiny white head. Aroma of perfume and fruity complexity. Taste is moderate sweet, syrup and dark marmelade with some fresh berries and weak bitter finish, complex and interesting, high carbonated, strange brew, well hidden alcohol.

Holmen2 (1742) - NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Dark golden. Off-white head. Red currants and raspberries with blue cheese. Same berries in satisfying taste. Refreshing, with scaringly high drinkability. Fresh berries in aftertaste. Dry, with lively carbonation.

Alengrin (3122) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Luxury barley wine matured on armagnac bottles, since 2011. Yellowish beige head, relatively stable seen the alcohol strength, colour a lightly hazy orange blonde. Complexely perfumed, warming aroma of obviously armagnac, peaches, honey, rosewater, orange, raspberry, tannins. Complex fruity, sweetish taste, resinous, quite strong carbo for a Belgian-style barley wine (or any barley wine), smooth with some yeasty spicy notes, brandy-like, woody and warming in the finish. Pleasantly surprised that Binchoise is capable of making such rich ales, though I have a feeling it is not worth the relatively high price - which is probably a result of the special bottle as well.
