Mothroy (77) - - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle (75 cl) at home. Rather dull looking mid-brown colour, not much in the way of a head. Sour and malty aroma. Slightly harsh earthiness is balanced by an underlying malt sweetness that is counteracted by a slight sourness. There is an enormous depth of flavour as the beer warms and hops start to make an appearance. A unique beer and a widely variable beer.

Countbeer (4391) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a cloudy amber colored beer. Aromas of malts, caramel, chalk, orange, some spices, cream, light nutty, hay, herbs, sweet wood and leaves. The flavour seems a little bit oxadised, just a little... There’s hints of malts, cream, hops, herbs, iron, yeast, orange, some spices, hay and some barley malt tones. Quite nice. Aftertaste is a mix of (pils) malts, yeast, orange and some hay. Medium carbo, creamy lightly blown mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture.

hobsch (436) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle 0.33l at Cambrinus Brugge. Pours hazy amber, tan head, fast vanishing. Aroma is caramel sweet, malt, slightly sour. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, sour, malty, dry. Really strange brew. Not my thing.

Trappist1 (477) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2013
Orange, white head. Aromatic, strawberry, little yeast. Taste is alcoholic, warm but also metallic. Aftertaste is sweet, full of alcohol.

Douberd (2220) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7.5% The bees has a deep golden orange on its body and a huge white head on top of it. Quite thick with very good retention. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma has fruity notes, with peaches and apricots and a little bit of caramel. Just a hint of yeast. Taste has more yeast on it, sugar and some sourness on the finish. Aftertaste is light fruity. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Overall okay.

Sparkly beer. Mildly sweet smooth body. Some caramel and a slight metallic taste. Boring.

Silvan7 (676) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle @ home. profumo piacevole di lievito belga, frutta esotica (secondo me mango), e pesche mature. Avvertibile anche una leggera nota agrumata. Profumo abbastanza intenso,ma poco persistente. Colore giallo ambrato carico, torbida, con schiuma bianca dalle bolle abbastanza fini. Gusto poco intenso, e poco peristente. inizialmente dolce, rivela un discreto calore alcolico e la luppolauta emerge, molto delicata, solo nell’aftertaste.non è molto armonica. Con occhi e naso sembra una birra da cui aspettarsi una forte nota personale, ma in bocca è deludente, poco caratterizzata.
