Swaroga (1864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2013
75cl bottle. Cloudy yellow with aggressive white head that disappears quickly. Nose ; fresh fruit aromas of apricot, banana, citrus, zest, soap. Cheese cake. Sip : lots of carbonation, mouthful and not easy to swallow. Oily texture. Cloyingly sweet with notes of citrus and other fruits. Strong esters. Almost no bitterness. Far from what I call a nice beer.

33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Poured a light yellow with a thin white top. Taste of banana, watermelon, citrus, yeast; very tropical. Fizzy on the palate, superb carbonation. I’m going against the grain here because I loved this beer!

Countbeer (5736) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized, vast, thick and slowly changing white head on top of a hazy bright yellow colored beer. The aroma’s or smell of this beer is pretty bad/strange: sweaty grains, light yeasty, baby poo, corn, sweat, wheat, hemp and a hint of paper. Taste wheat, corn, hint of hops, hint of spices, grains, bitter, hint of citrus and peach, hint of paper, hint of soap and herbs. Aftertaste is bitter with spices, herbs and grass and light dry. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture Decent beer, nothing spectacular but not bad either.
