250 ml bottle in Ziguinchor, Senegal. Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, fruity aroma, candy-like, but not in an artificial way. Flavor is equally sweetish cardboard and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavor. Metallic notes in the palate. Pretty bland other than the chemicals in it.

OK, entering this beer is sure to touch off the discussion, seen in the forums many times, about whether to enter beers like this that are found in other countries, but brewed here inAfrica. I have no idea if the recipe is different. Label says "Brasserie et embouteillee sous licence intenationale par SOBOA Dakar Senegal." SOBOA is the French term for the society of brewers of west africa. So,you make the call. This one, courtesy of USAID, was a clear chestnut color, small beige head with poor retention. Aroma of caramel and light smoke. Taste had a sweet caramel start withabitterand peppery finish. One way or the other, it’s nice to see something besides a lager brewed in west Africa.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Sanft herb-malziger Antrunk. Spritzig würzig werdend, durch die leicht getreidige Herbenote zusätzlich frisch wirkend. Die Malzigkeit dehnt sich etwas aus, wirkt aber auch wässrig und daher etwas flach. Zum Ende wieder würzig-herb und erneut leicht getreidig. Einfach zu trinkendes Ambree. Danke an quack-duck. Test vom 11.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,9,8,8,8 - 8,15

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Amber colour but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malty, caramel, spicy fruitiness (resembling coriander), tea. Very nice, taste is slightly worse. Heavy, sweet maltiness, citrusy-spicy, tea, some mandarine and faint banana. Light, slightly astringent bitterness at the back that is a minor flaw. Best one out of the Pelforth bunch.

Bottle 25cl @Auchan. A clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is caramel like. Aroma is malty, on caramel, alcohol is quite present, very bitter and peppery. Less interesting than than the sping amber beer. Bit disapointed.

It pours a beautiful auburn autumn-leaf colour. The head looks good on pouring but it disappears after a few minutes. The nose gives off initial notes of ripe apples and pears. The taste is soft and malty with stewed apples on the finish. Reasonable structure but the finish is a bit confusing - neither refreshing nor rich and long. My general impression is that the palate does not live up to the aroma.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur ambrée claire, mousse moyenne qui s’estompe assez vite. Aromatiquement, ce n’est pas trop mal, plutôt caramélisée et florale, par contre... Elle pique! Ce n’est pas l’alcool mais quelque chose la rend piquante presque instantanément en bouche et ça lui est très préjudiciable. En plus de çà, je pensais avoir à faire à la pelforth printemps car le packaging était trompeur, grrr! Trouvée à Cora - Courrière.

250 ml bottle, poured into leffe chalice. Half a finger head, clear, ruby brown colour. Perfume dominates the aroma, there are some hops there. Tastes of sweet perfumed hops, some malt there. The abv is well hidden. Very smooth mouthfull. A pleasant beer, goes down ok.
