janubio (642) - SPAIN - JAN 16, 2016
Deep golden colour, two fingers head that fades soon. Great lace. Smell is malty, yeast, dried fruits, slithly citrus, peach. Medium to full body, fizzy carbonation. Palate is thick and astringent. Taste is spicy, candied sugar, fruits. alcohol is very noticeable, as it warms your throat and stomach. Dry and astrigent finish.

weordie (712) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Pours copper with a foamy head. The aroma is a mix of sherbet, banana and that lovely Belgian yeast smell. The taste is strong with the Belgian yeast but not much else other than some stringent alcohol. A dry mouthfeel.

wojciechianna (260) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Highly carbonated, huge head. Aroma of malts, alcohol, and a bit of hops or citrus. Tastes dry, malty, and bitter because of the alcohol. Beer intense in alcohol, but not much in flavours.

Nogal een hoge bittere na-smaak, de smaak zelf is op zich goed, een donkere kleur.
