4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From my tasting notes: The beer poured a golden amber with a generous white head. I got a hint of onion in the aroma like I had heard, but more of a sweet onion with a base of sweet citrus and tropical fruit. The taste was a bitter hop monster that erupted in my mouth like biting into a grapefruit rind. The Gubna was big, bold and full of hop dominance with a blast of grapefruit and dank resinous hops. The rye malt gave the brew a spicy malt balance and a great lingering taste on my tongue. This had a very strong balanced bitterness that was delicious and surprisingly smooth and easy to drink. It got a little boozy as it warmed, but that’s to be expected with such a high ABV.

Pours a light coppery color with a billowing, white, soapy head that lasts quite a while. Sweet smell to it, with a hop presence. Taste is confusing. Very sweet. For some reason rock candy keeps entering my mind. There is a hoppiness to it, but not overpowering. Get a bit of resiny flavor in the back end. So, sweet malt, candy-like flavor. A bit of spiciness (not hot spicy, but spicy nonetheless). The beer coats the whole mouth. I like it, but the taste is really unique and still wrapping the head around it.

Thx! 355 ml. can sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Hazy orange, little head. Nose is fruits, vanilla, sweet; Taste is vanilla, popcorn, shockingly sweet, onion hops, sugar, citrus, sweet spices. Thick body. Is this how it is supposed. Feels like a mistake but I have to admit that I really did enjoy the taste. Really enjoyable for me, whatever this is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small to medium head over clear golden beer. Hops, fruity and citrussy, but rather fleetingly. Hint at saltiness/fish - DMS in high concentration? Sweet, spicy as in Christmas spices, with again that mineral touch. Quite slick, medium bodied. Weird! I really guess DMS.
