Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden with medium white head. Managed to leave the yeast in the bottle despite its opacity. Fruity aroma - oranges and lemons, some apple, distant banana. Also honey, yeast, alcohol, candy sugar. Medium body for the abv. Warming alcohol finish.

Lekker zoet bier met wat licht donkere kleur en mooie schuimkraag. Frisse, citrusachtige smaak met een wat bittere nasmaak. Lekker bier en drinkt makkelijk weg maar mist net wat karakter voor een top bier.

alteregoo (285) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Piana biała, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do postrzępionej warstewki. Barwa złota, początkowo klarowna, od połowy butelki, po lekkim wstrząśnięciu, mętna (widać na zdjęciach). Aromat typowo belgijski, triplowy - są owoce w postaci brzoskwiń, moreli, trawy cytrynowej, jest pieprz czerwony, leciutka stajnia oraz nieśmiałe cytrusy od chmieli. W smaku mniej słodkie od typowych tripli, pół wytrawne, owocowo-przyprawowe, aczkolwiek dość treściwe, słodowe i jednocześnie winogronowo-winne. Goryczka faktycznie obecna, średnia w odczuciu, lekko żywiczna i grejpfrutowo-pikantna. Alkohol obecny, rozgrzewający, nagazowanie średnie do wysokiego. W afterteasie gorzko-cierpkie owoce głogu i likierowy alkohol (jest to dość przyjemne i zachęca do kolejnych łyków). Fajne belgijskie klimaty podane w nowofalowy sposób, konkretnie nachmielone na goryczkę, nieco mniej na aromat, pozostawiając tym samym miejsce dla estrów od drożdży. Dla mnie idealne połączenie, zdecydowanie wyznacznik jakości dla polskich nowofalowych jasnych belgian ale.

jamaty (1156) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
Doble malta y trigo. Pajiza y turbia con tropezones de sedimento. Espuma hiperabundante con aspecto de gel de bańo. Aroma plano y si acaso metálico. Potente en boca con predominio de dulce caramelo, aunque tiene un toque metálico, y también algo de melocotón. Bastante alcohólica.

Alaranjada, densa com boa espumação. Aroma com um pouco de cítrico e lúpulo floral. Bem encorpada, balanceada, com leve amargor e lúpulo perceptível.

Maakun (1479) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Tap at Little Delirium. Clear golden with white head. Tangerine skins, hay, marmalade, funk, raw vegetables, sweet malts. Quite sweet going into light sourness and thick bitter citrus finish. Medium bodied. Quite interesting beer, has some almost lambic like touch, I like it.

nearbeer (4121) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2015
75 cl. with a cork indicating a 2012 vintage. Pours golden-amber with a few sea monkeys floating around the midriff and a thin film of foam on top. Nose is treacle, pineapple, berries and a faint hint of oak. Tastes of brown sugar and apple, with some bitter herbal and wooden hops. Long finish has some waxy kerosene notes that I detect in all of the half-dozen products I’ve tasted from this brewery. Medium body has a low-medium carbonation and is balanced, but in an extremely bipolar fashion.
