I just love that glass. Copper colour with a big head. Some sweetness in the smell, some caramel. Little ester smell, maybe banana. Sweet round taste, some bitterness. Possibly syrup and yeast in the taste. Some soft taste that could be banana. Due to the shape of the glass the first part the beer was rather smooth, but in the end there was a little too much carbonation.

750ml bottle. Treacle coloured body, honey and malt combined with alcohol in the nose. Smooth palate, flavours of demeiera sugar with rum, honey, malt and currents. Long sweet and alcohol finish. Loads better than I expected, the gimmicky glass puts me off ordering in bars.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2008 Cloudy red/orange colour with lots of sediment. A long-lasting medium sized off-white head. Nice lacing. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet malt and fruity flavours. Dry and slightly bitter finish. A very nice drop! 330ml brown bottle.

Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Light amber with pale white head. Malty aroma. Very aromatic malt, probably from large percentage of munich malt. Some spicy phenolics of vanilla complemented by apples. Slight cidery, apple flavor with toasted and biscuity malt. Not much caramel. Pronounced sugary cider feeling from use of high percentage candy sugar. Nice, but with a somewhat cheap feeling to it.

Aroma is pungent caramel. Pours with little head. A very nice taste, well-balanced, excellent beer.

Light amber gold body with a small white head. Aroma of peaches and yeast. Flavor was nice, if not terribly complex. I tasted peaches, green grapes, and yeast. Very drinkable, but not in the class of the great Belgian Stong Ales.

Good beer. Interesting glass they have. When poured into a glass it is probably one of the best looking beers I have ever seen.

On draft in el central de Cambrils. Great reddish color very clean and transparent, with a considerable head. Poured in the original glass! The aroma is clearly Belgian, deep sweet and honey. The taste is in the same line, but rather soft. Great palate too, not too bubbly neither too flat. Not much aftertaste, at least nothing of the bitterness I like.. Good overall anyway!
