tomekk1978 (404) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Barwa: złota, wyraźnie zmętniona (drobinki drożdży). Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: alkoholowo - owocowy (morele), dość ostry, ale nie przesadnie. Smak: pełne, słodowe, słodkie i alkoholowe. W miarę zbalansowane i przyjemniejsze niż się początkowo wydaje. La Guilotine zdobyło szereg nagród, które można zobaczyć tutaj: http://www.delirium.be/107/awards. Nie jest zatem piwem przypadkowym. Przyznam, że piłem, je wcześniej w wersji 0,33l i nie wywarło na mnie szczególnego wrażenia. Wydaje się, że wersja "duża" jest nieco bardziej interesująca. Jako ciekawostkę można dodać, że w kolejnych warkach browar obniżył zawartość alkoholu o 0,5 % i obecnie jest ono lżejsze. Być może jeszcze na tym zyska?

Russo (1650) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 15, 2014
Clear golden color with a medium white foam. Yeast and bread notes in aroma. Flavor is like aroma with some light citrus notes. Light carbonation and medium bodied with a dry finish.

Light hoppy aroma, enjoyable full mouthfeel. Well balanced taste, but in the end alcohol gets to much space.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Drank on tap (12 oz) at Bier Markt Montreal on March 9, 2014. Blonde pale straw, small head. Spicy aroma barley, dry hops. Saaz hop flavor very dry, slightly spicy, a little alcohol and not feeling very bitter. It’s pretty good but I do not put my head in a guillotine to get another!

Bottle, 75 cl. Very nice pale ale. Overwhelming hop taste that is indeed intense. Bitter aftertaste.

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2014
Old rating MAY 28, 2004 Initial aroma of fruit and spice; cinnamon and apple maybe. Pours hazy light golden colour with a solid white head. Quite a smooth texture, a bit of alcohol warmth and flavour with it. The flavour is mainly dominated by sweet malts and fruits, hints of different spices. Nice enough to drink, maybe a bit weak for a beer of the style and strength though.
