Vells (773) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 21, 2014
Way too overcarbonated. Light malty background dominated by quite pleasant fruitiness, berries, citrusy hops, light yeasty. Mostly sweet with decent bitterness in finish. Bit harsh alco kick. Drinkable, but that high carbonation ruins beer for me

Jamedra (578) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 17, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemné, sladce karamelové s nádechem pomerančové kůry, kvasnic a lehkým alkoholovým podkladem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, mohutná a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá a jemně kalná. Chuť je velmi silně prostoupena alkoholem, má sladový nádech s lehkým kvasnicovým podkladem, finiš je středně hořký, alkoholově palčivý a držící. V ústech pivo působí robustně, má silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Jedná se o pivo, které rozhodné dělá čest svému jménu.

TheCaptMatey (133) - Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Poured a light cloudy amber colour with a thick head that had plenty of retention. Body was full of yeast sediment. Had a very fruity aroma that was mirrored in its taste with malt flavors and good carbonation. Has a bit of bite on the Finish like a sharp Champaign. Not too bad. Sediment creeps me out though.

Bottle from E.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of malty, Belgian yeast, honey and soft fruit. Bitter hop flavours, with some flowery notes and hay. Finish was dry grain, grass and chalkiness.

Clear yellow orange with a white head. Aroma of peaches and strawberries. Smooth sweet finish and a taste to match the aroma without being too fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2607) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Deep golden blonde, heavy Huyghe ale with off-white head, relatively stable seen its strength. Fruity, citrussy aroma, caramel malts, sweetish taste, quite light body for such a heavy beer, yeasty spiciness, grassy hop bitter finish with warming alcohol. Actually not bad and one of the better Huyghe beers.
