Clear golden color with not too much head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Milldly sweet and yeasty in flavor. A bit more heavy than expected.

Serapac (200) - 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 (182) - 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 (220) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 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.

Golden to ambar color. Rocky byt short head. Interesting aroma: fruity, citric, yeasty, clove and a bit of roastyness. It is not very intense in nose but it is nice in mouth. Intense flavor. Bitter but also a bit acid (because of the high carbonation). These are well compensated by a full body and the right sweetness. Bitterness is quite sort and the end is a bit sweet Very nice

Pepinis (82) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2015
Cerveza de color dorado intenso, presenta turbidez. Buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. Aroma marcado por los toques frutales y la levadura. Suave presencia de lúpulos con un marcado caracter herbáceo. Buena correspondencia entre aroma y sensación en boca, el alcohol se evidencia más en el sabor que en el aroma y aparecen suaves notas especiadas. Amargor leve y de poca persistencia. Cuerpo medio y alta carbonatación. Retrogusto con suave dulzor residual.

kraddel (4328) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle Pours rather clear blonde, huge white head builds up instantly ( the bottle was no gusher though ) . Smell is sweet grains, and a sweet kind of yeastyness . Some sugar . Way to much carbo - as to be expected . Taste starts off a bit bitter , with sweet undertone , and a sharp grainyness . Doesn’t feel very natural , yet I doubt that there were additives used ... Yet i’d say its a bit thin with overpowering, ’fake’ bitterness, nowhere near what you usually get in - for instance - IPA’s ( or other Hop-based beers ) .

danielyabu (1350) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 1, 2015
small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. dark yellow translucent average-density body. aroma: fruity (resembles boiled pineapple), licorice, fennel. if: moderate (fruity and caramel) sweet. ff: moderate sweet light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. Dulçor enjoativo a torna de baixa drinkability. O sabor, a exemplo do aroma, também lembra o suco de abacaxi fervido. 20s

Goudgeel met mooie kraag, veel co2. Aroma is friszuur, moutig. Smaak is zoet met wat zuur bij de afdronk. Redelijke body.

Bottle from Brewnbbq, thanks for the opportunity Jeff! Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head that has moderate retention. aromas of light sugary malt with bits of honey. Tart berry and pomme fruits come through nicely as well as some yeasty earthy esters. The flavor holds what the aroma promised, but adds a touch of warming alcohol. Medium body, sparkly carbonation. Nice brew, thanks for sharing!
