Kauge (603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn. BB 12/2015. 80% more head than body; head is big bubbled and very light creamy with good retention and massive lacing, body near clear. Nose is Belgian yeast, hay, ripe autumn fruits, orange marmalade spread on toast, some spiciness. Taste is malty and fruity, turning into spicy and alcoholic in the finish, all this coated in a layer of light caramel. Body (light to) medium with very soft carbonation, very smooth but a little grainy on the palate, with a dry finish. Not bad but somewhat unmemorable.

330 ml bottle. Pours a brown amber with light head. Aromas of honey, brown sugar, and light sweet malts. Flavors of candi sugar, toasted malts, golden raisins, and light Belgian yeast. Smooth and pleasant.

rdb84 (247) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Fles. Grote schuimkraag, donkeroranje, troebel. Aromas: confituur van abrikoos, sambal, diksap, vleugje appelcider. Klein beetje muf. Zeer aangenaam. Schuim blijft komen bij het bijschenken. Smaak is lekker zuur, perzik, abrikoos, wijnachtig, precies goed. Met het bezinksel erbij transformeert het bier en verliest het aan zuur, maar er komt een aangename zachtheid voor terug waarbij de gist goed is waar te nemen. Lekkere amber.
