Amber coloured, fine sparkle and delicate and thick head. Pleasant mixture of the aroma of hops and a slight hint of liquorice. Pronounced bitterness, mellow and thirst-quenching.

erickok (5095) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Gusher. Amber caramel malts, cookie dough, fatty sweetness, cereal and some marmelade. Typical Belgian yeast, not too filtered. Light bitterness but also a relatively light bubble for the style so it;s fairly balanced. Main issue is that it falls a bit in nomansland when it comes to the style. I like amber beers, but it’s a bit too liquorice and cloying for its own good. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

bartlebier (3249) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
33cl, BH Sortimentserkundung, shared sample. - Bref: Walloon spéciale belge of sorts, typically substituting subtle caramalt aromatics for spice & more spice. - Fizzy amber-breadbrown pour, generous fizzy foam. Bread crust, yeast bitters and pepper reinforce, then cancel each other out: wet grasses, dried straw and dry hop bitters merge into a bit of a harsher palate attack than is usual for the malt-forward style. Added spice?

Feels like apple pie. ABV is well hidden, some carbonisation left. Not bad, but should try fresh one as well.
