BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
37.5 cl bottle and served in my smaller Tripel Karmeliet glass: Pours a nice reddish amber hue with an initial big frothy slightly off-white pinkish head that left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has sweet cherry extract character along with some strange band-aid medicinal notes. Some nice almond and toffee vapours along with a hint of oak. The taste has a medicinal, sulfur and minerally off-putting quality. The cherries taste fake as well, I expected a nice tartness I got instead big sweetness. The almond notes and some earthy notes are it only redeeming qualities. DRAIN POUR!!! Even the finish of the mouth feel seems completely wrong. What a waste of my monies.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy peach amber with a ton of head. Aroma is sort of a muddled earthiness with some fruit coming through. Taste is very sweet, but not over powering. Slightly nutty, more sweet than it is tart. Very old world earthy. i like it

ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew on Christmas Tasting 2012. Pours a deep hazy orange body with a small off-white medium head. Aroma is mild tones of fruity honey and red berries, hint of grains and not much more. Taste is mild nutty fruity, cherry-like tones with faint traces of almonds and grains. Full body medium carbonation. What’s all the fuzz about? This beer is neither extreme nor represent the full dessert (Ris a la M’ale) which it purports to do. As far as I’m concerned, it’s just a bit dull. Not bad, though.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Monk’s Cafe, Philadelphia tap ($8): Pours a reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma is cherries, yeast, other fruits, and some maltiness. Taste is not really sweet at all, but the cherries are there. There is not really any sourness either. Tastes like a dark Belgian ale pretty much. I don’t really taste the almonds and vanilla much, but I am sure that they are there. Pretty good and interesting enough.

CamdenD (1092) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2012
A wild mix of beers here. Somewhat funky a year later and the fruit is understated. The almonds do well to smooth out the flavor. This is good, just not wildly good.

rlgk (10254) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Hazy reddish/amber with an ok offwhite head. Malty aroma, biscuits, raisins, cherries, vanilla, caramel, candy, banana, hay, almond, slightly tart. Caramel flavor, cherries, vanilla, bitter hops, raisins, toffee, vinous, grapes, citrus notes. This beer is all over the place, but it gets away with it.

Red beer. Medium carbonation. Very fruity (cherries) but not sour.. Bitter sweet. Good to drink with a dessert.
