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.

bartlebier (3179) - 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?

ShonaIi (20) - HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle at PaterMarcus. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a stiff ecru head. Aroma is very weak, I can only smell a bit of orange peel. Taste is light, a bit watery in the middle, otherwise its mainly bitter with some citrus and a tiny bit of hidden sweatness. Overall its nice, easy to drink, i can image drinking this on a hot summer day, but it lacks any definitive characteristic.
