Tasted dirty. I didn't even finish the glass which is saying something for me. Maybe I got a bad bottle. I will have to retaste sometime.

Brew_Cat (5) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
Bottle @ Barley Cargo, Athens. Light yellow to golden color, small diminishing off-white head, medium body. Malt aromas of bread, hay, and grains. Floral, grass and herbal notes. At times it reminded me of white wine. Taste evolves and new layers appear as time passes by, leaving an earthly fresh sense and a slightly sour aftertaste. Not as strong as I would expect from its ABV percentage, nevertheless a fairly good and refreshing golden ale. Paired well with vegetarian finger food.

Cloudy golden appearance. Yeasty, spicy aroma with a faint smell of hops. Spicy, yeasty flavor and bitter on the palate.

Bottiglia 0.75 l. Ottima strong ale belga con note di limone e coriandolo. Piacevolmente "gassata".

Lekki gaszing z butelki (piwo niefiltrowane, refermentowane w butelce więc ma prawo), spora szampańska piana szybko opadająca do obrączki, mętna jasno pomarańczowa barwa. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, owocowo-słodowy, są cytrusy, dominujące brzoskwinie, morele, guma balonowa i cała masa melanoidyn kojarzących się ze świeżym chlebem, skoszonym zbożem, biszkoptami... W smaku delikatna owocowo-drożdżowa kwaśność, troszkę kojarząca mi się z witbierem, lekka odsłodowa słodycz, kontrowana przyprawowością z kolendrą i czerwonym pieprzem na czele. Goryczka nieduża, ale obecna, alkohol w sumie wyczuwalny, mógłby być lepiej ukryty, choć z drugiej strony może dodaje to głębi temu piwu? Nagazowanie średnie, odczucie półpełne. Belgijska klasyka po raz kolejny mnie nie zawodzi. Świetne kompleksowe piwo z bogatym aromatem i pięknie skomponowanym bukietem smakowym, bardzo pijalne a zarazem szlachetne.

Poured from tap. Bananas in aroma, note of herbs, little citrus. Yeasty. Gold, a little hazy color. Not so big foam with good lacing. Low carbonized. Taste is mystery for me - its something like parsley or other sort of root with herbs and honey note. Little fruity. Medium, noble bitterness. Quite nice.

Hazy amber beer with a filmy head. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Flavour has all of this but there’s a floral, banana taste to it too. I can’t pick out the spice, maybe a sort of cinnamon taste? Makes it sound like a pudding but it’s not like that. Crisp and refreshing but a hell of a lot of flavour to it as well.
