GuideDogSaint (832) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAY 19, 2015

drdisque (655) - Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at Haywood Tavern, Chicago. No aroma to speak of. Pours slightly ruddy clear amber. Flavor is rich and sweet caramel and yeast with a touch of spice. Very pleasant BSA. No alchohol burn. A little dead inside, though, and lacks soul, but a very pleasant beer. Don’t know why it doesn’t smell like anything.

Serapac (247) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 12, 2015
Bottle, La Flobette, Furfooz. Darker yellow, large rocky white head, good retention, strong carbonation. Aroma malts, yeast. Taste very sweet, honey, lime tree flowers. Not bad but definitely not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (388) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 24, 2015
Visual âmbar escuro, um pouco turvo. Espuma branca rala (copo caldereta 300ml). Aroma adocicado e de especiarias. Corpo leve, carbonação média. Paladar bem dividido entre doce e amargo, ambos de leve-média intensidade. Aftertaste um pouco adstringente, mas sem nenhuma característica em especial. Ficou devendo para outras strong ales que conheço.

rdb84 (344) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Bottle. Dark yellow, golden pour with strong soapy foam head. Lovely sour aroma: white wine, white grapes, lime, yeast, hint of spices, apricot. Nice blend. Yeast deposit reveals more fruitiness. Taste is sour with a nicely balanced sweet tone. Some grapes, some lemon, some orange. Hint of pine in the development. Aftertaste is relatively neutral. I really like the Caracole lineup.

Amber with medium white head. Yeasty fruit notes with some bitterness, not too rich in taste.
