33cl Bottle at A LA Mort Subite in Brussels. A Tripel hop style beer think of it as a european style IPA almost! As the name suggests this is a very hoppy beer. I f you like IPAs you will like this but with the added bonus of a touch of belgian spices (that are not at all over powering),

Relativt dov aroma, lite lageraktigt, lite belgisk jäst. Smaken kraftigare, mer jäst, sötma.

Fashawn (221) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
Birra biondo carico, quasi ramato, con riflessi arancioni, con un bel cappello di schiuma. L’aroma mi delude un po’ con il malto che si sente appena accompagnato da frutta fresca come pesche e banane. Sulla lingua sento qualcosa appena decente, che è un tiepido sorso amaricante. in bocca, bevendola per bene sento una birra calda, che Fa emergere l’alcool viste le sorsata calde. Evidentemente era troppo fresca, perché riscaldandosi da un po’ di corpo. Ma, evidentemente, è una buona birra e poco più. Gli otto gradi emergono come fossero dodici, l’amaro è eccessivo per lo stile. Una birra sui generis, ma non in senso buono. Si poteva fare di più.

Aroma is grainy malts, caramel, mild sweetness and a tart/slightly alcoholic finish.

gopherfan99 (659) - CROATIA - SEP 13, 2014
Flip top bottle; pours gold with a big, white head; has a sweet aroma of citrus, malt, and a hint of yeast; taste is less hoppy than I expected due to the name but good none the less, light bittersweet with malt, citrus, and some caramel; has a dry, light bitter finish; overall this was a hoppy as I was expecting but still a good, smooth drinking beer.

very malty in smell and taste, golden, couldy in colour, with a nice frothy head. Quite floral on the aftertaste. Was expecting to be a bit on the hoppy side due to the name, but it wasn’t. Was a nice strong belgian ale.

bartlebier (2069) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
33cl fliptops bought 2013, on draught @Waterhuis a/d Bierkant, Gent - backlog. Pours eminently Belgian golden-copper with mountainous rocky head, barely contained by its tall bulb glass. Never really hoppy enough to justify its name, but pleasantly herbal and fresh on draught to deal with the toasty Belgian ale substratum of lean & laden Vienna/caramalts and excess oomph. Elegantly balanced and solidly bitter hopped (East Kent Goldings? + Fuggle?) considering that amped abv, but relying on a traditional recipe, merely packing some gentle surplus floral and earthy aroma hops. Drinks almost as easily as a UK ESB at double its strength, not necessarily offering twice the subtlety in taste.

Vignale (2243) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Disig gyllenfärgad med ett högt kompakt långsamt sjunkande skum som lämnar fina gardiner. Doft av jäst, lite källare, hö och örter. Stor kropp med värmande alkoholen, skummig och rund i munnen fruktig sötma, söta äpplen och päron, lite honung, påtaglig beska som är örtig och lite för stor och som inte riktigt känns integrerad och summan blir därför inte lika elegant och fruktig som Duvels humlade varianter. Men ganska gott är det.

33cl flesje bij Boterhal, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 8,3% Uitgeschonken in originele hoge Hopen glas Uiterlijk: blond, witte schuimkraag, veel koolzuur Aroma en smaak: redelijk bitter, al vind ik het meevallen als op het etiket 'straf, bitter en blond' staat vermeld. Conclusie: lekker biertje, goed mondgevoel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
