Kleurplaatje (42) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Pours clear orang with a frothy and thick white head. Aroma is clearly malty with some honey in it. Some yeast, spices as well... Bit buttery smell... Not unpleasant. Taste is very sweet. Definetely sugars and spices. Clear taste of the honey, caramel, coriander... Some banana... Bit bitterish/dryish near the end, but still there is that lingering sugary sweetness. Nice warmish mouthfeel, but a bit of an alcoholic bite throughout the whole sip, which was quite a bit disturbing. Could have hidden the alcohol a bit better. Full bodied, oily and sticky texture and quite lively carbonated. Not a bad brew. Not the most complex as well. Decently tasty, but it could have been more refined and more balanced. A bit too boozy and alcoholic and maybe a bit too sweet/sugary for its kind as well.

milo91hd (132) - Lecce, ITALY - NOV 12, 2014
Bottiglia 75 cl, colore ambrato limpido con una schiuma fine e poco persistente, all’aroma la prima cosa che salta sono i lieviti per proseguire con una nota dolce simile al caramello, in bocca è abbastanza dolce. l’amaro si presenta pochissimo solamente nel finale, abbastanza astringente e secca, i 9 gradi si fanno sentire abbastanza, più beverina nella sua versione classica blonde

Bosskie (442) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
Crystal-clear beer with a beautiful reddish golden colour, nice gentle bubbling and a white head. Smell is very fruity with lots of peaches, oranges and caramel, alcohol sourness and rotten dark fruit. Dough. Taste is very sweet, not so much fruitiness - mainly caramel. There’s supposed to be a good balance between bitterness and sweetness (according to the label), but I can’t find it. Finish is dry and lightly astringent. Heavy caramel sweetness and alcohol. Touch of apples.

Alusmamuts (434) - LATVIA - NOV 1, 2014
Light clear amber with medium fastly dissappearing yellow head. Biitterness with carboation sourness at the beginning, remaing bitterness later Over all the mouth watery sweetness.

Bamsen78 (3314) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt and fruit, with notes of hops and yeast. Sweetish flavour of malt, fruit and caramel, with hoppy touches. Warming alcohol presence. Estery and slightly bittersweet finish. Okay but nothing really special for the style.

Ulysse (84) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2014
Rather pleasant aroma. On the sweet end of the tongue. We can notice the alcohol. Not bad but not good either.

Bière sucré, on goute un peu trop l’alcool. Bière sans intérêt particulier mais qui se laisse boire facilement.

Too much coriander. Too much sweet bonbons. Palate is flat. Not a lot of impressions. B@H
