Desverger (3220) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from BarleyWine, CPH - golden to orange coloured pour with big white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, some caramel, with some citrus notes, smattering of floral and herbal hoppy nuances throughout, yeasty, and some spices. Not really my thing, but decent enough.

AGCostaNeves (69) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2015
With a cloudy golden yellow color that help cover sediments that fall to the bottom of the cup. This beautiful Strong Golden Ale features a White Cream of high training and dense with a lasting persistence that goes to the end of the tasting, marking harmoniously side of the cup. Its aroma is delicious and exudes a metal flavor that probably originated from waste fell from re-fermentation. Very herbal and floral (white flowers). Being well with delicious fruity citrus notes of orange peel and spices such as coriander, ginger. The taste is initially sweet, where the caramel hides behind the alcohol, and is soon caught by the ideal of bitterness Belgian herbal hops that merges with the spicy played that is present until the end of the sip. This beer strives for balance and to be refreshing. Prolonged and bitter aftertaste of specific Belgian hops with a certain metallic taste. The body is medium dry and spicy finish. Drinkability medium / high. A classic Strong Golden Ale Belgium
