martin00sr (1811) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Clear dark amber, small frothy offwhite head. Aroma has red berries and vanilla. Very dry and bretty. Not your typical BSA. Sour berries and subdued malt. Fluffy mouthfeel. Atypical BSA.

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and caramel malt, with notes of hops and yeats. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish notes of caramel malt and fruity and touches of yeast. Bitter and slightly acetic aftertaste. Hinyts of barrel. Soft carbonation. Not bad but clearly a non-Belgian Belgian Strong Ale.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with brief, foamy head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, raisins, prunes, dark bread, hay, citrus peel and spicy hints of wild yeast. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, raisins, prunes, dark fruit, orange peel, perfumy flavours of wild yeast and a balanced spicy/citric bitterness in a finish with a slightly vinous edge. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Interesting beer, quite complex and tasty with a balanced touch of wild yeast. Very nice.

brewerale (145) - - FEB 6, 2015
Marrom avermelhada com muita formação de espuma densa e consistente. Aroma com notas adocicadas de frutas frescas e secas, e caramelo, além de tabaco, especiarias, frescor do lúpulo e levedura belga. No paladar o lúpulo é mais forte, depois surge tabaco, especiarias e frutas secas. O malte compõe o conjunto. Corpo médio com final longo, um pouco seco e adstringente, e traz no retrogosto bom e equilibrado amargor. Ótima cerveja!!!

Draught at BrewDog Camden on 13 Oct 2012. Poured a bright amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of tangerines, big malt and white grapes. Citrus hop flavours, with some passionfruit and building bitter pine. Finish was lingering resin, tinned fruit and candy sugar.

750mL bottle. Cloudy reddish brown and good lacing. Aroma is tart citrus, brown sugar and toasted malt, prunes, dates, biscuit. Taste is dark fruit sweetness, and hoppy citrus bitterness. A mix of creamy and effervescent. Medium low dry finish.

fkoolen (671) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2014
Beautiful deep orange colour, almost transparent, big white foamy head. Sweet tropical fruits and banana, pine and nice bitterness from the hops, soft grainy malts, caramel, boozy alcohol, little barnyard funk and brett-sour tones. Complex but very well balanced. Soft mouthfeel, (too) low carbonation, good body.
