EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2013
Ambrée voilée, effervescence moyenne, col nuageux abondant. Malts caramel, notes de fruits, un rien métallique, assez sèche, un peu trop aqueuse. Banalité quand tu nous tiens!

Shared a 33cl from La Cave à Bière de St Léo. It pours a amber copper colour with a nice and persistent white head. Nice beer but nothing so special about it.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a white head. The aroma is toffee and grass. The flavor is toffee, grass and bread. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2013
33cl bottle. Hazy brown with medium, ivory head. Nose : very nice smell of yeast, fruits and tart. Some toffe and milk chocolate. Sip : creamy with decent carbonation. The beer is spicy sweet. Clove and tart flavour. It gets a bit dry this way. But still the beer is dominated by malt tart taste. Delicate bitter end. Mostly spices and earth.

janubio (389) - SPAIN - MAR 18, 2013
330 ml. bottle. Amber copper colour, with a big head that holds decently. Smell is very faint, with apricots, caramel, pine and spices. Too light body imo, but drinkable. Taste of apricots, apples, caramel some spices, but too faint too. A bit of a deception, since I’ve really enjoyed osme others Queue de Charrue.

Grzesiek79 (3112) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Dobre i ładnie wyglądające piwo w pokalu. Pomarańczowo-burzsztynowa barwa i odcienie. Piana spora i się zaznacza na szkle. Aromat toffi ale lekki, smak karmelowy i średnio intensywny

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Brown 25cl bottle brewed by ’Du Bocq’ for Vanuxeem-Ploegsteert. Plenty of life left, best before 22 Nov 2009, drank late April 2009. Poured into a Duvel Glass. Clear amber body, darkish off-white head, good retension and lots of bubbles rising through the beer, looked impressive. Aroma of yeasts, malts and apples. Bland and lifeless, a slight malty flavour, very disappointed compared to the smell and look, but I shouldn’t have been surprised, Du Bocq produce some fairly crap beers in my opinion. This is just another one of their pretend beers. One of the worst Belgian ambers I’ve ever had!

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, honey, orange and slightly floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange, apricots, honey, a touch of yeast and floral hops in a fairly dry finish. Medium body. Tasty and quite decent, but hardly exciting.

(33cl bottle, BB 13/04/12) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander, hay, cinnamon, and florals. Flavor of yeast, earth, caramel, and grass.
