Pours a light clean straw yellow with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose is estery with soft white fruit being dominant. Notes of bread dough and spicy yeast creep in. Very similar to a Delirium but perhaps a bit more peppery/spicy. Light medium body with a fruity finish.

330mL bottle. Pours bright gold, large billowy white head, no lacing. Aroma of Belgian sugars, hay, barnyard, some toffee. Taste is very much the combination of a traditional Blonde Ale combined with the yeast and sugars of a Belgian Ale, think Delirium Tremens "light". Nice short crisp finish.

(Backlog) Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Light spice, yeast and fruit aromas. Spice, yeast and hop flavors come through.

the aroma of malt, citrus, buckwheat and hop... the taste is rough, bitter with notes of spices, herbs, raisin and hop... aftertaste is rather bitter and warming...

digopossobon (115) - MACAE, BRAZIL - JUL 5, 2014
Aroma suave doce de malte e de álcool. Líquido dourado, translúcido, com carbonataçăo viva. Creme branco e espesso. Bom amargor com doçura inicial breve. Bastante encorpada. Final bem amargo e prolongado, talvez em demasia. Alguma acidez bem colocada.

I've had this beer for several times before, and this is the first time I have it with original proper glass. But it doesn't hide its strong alcohol. Very strong feeling while drinking it.

Hanoi (353) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Nose is cereal, yeast slight corn nuts. Taste is uneven, candy sugar, leading to bitter spice and pepper. The alcohol is poorly handled giving an unpleasant petrol note which pervades the finish. Not a particularly nice drink.

Habja krémes és rendkívül tartós, gyorsan fejlődik. Illata különleges és összetett: fűszeres, citrusos. A pohárba töltve élesztődarabok jelenlétére lehetünk figyelmesek. Ízében szintén felfedezhető a citrusos aroma, a fűszeres jelleg azonban hangsúlyosabb. Összességében szokatlan, üdítő és emlékezetes ízvilág jellemzi.
