Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, - 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.

blackisle (1373) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Clear pale to medium amber, large foamy white head, settles quickly, good lacing; aroma is perfume, peach, caramel, yeast; taste is medium sweet and light bitter, light malty and fruity (peach, orange); light to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, not much of aftertaste, light hop bitterness in the finish; rather thin, disappointing.

En bouteille.Bon goût de malt et bière rafraichissante pour une fermentation haute. Pas la meilleure de la gamme, mais une bière sympa et relativement facile à boire qui sera parfaite pour les convives à l’apéro.

(bottle) clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of peaches and caramel, with lots of powdered sugar, some apple juice, bubble gum and white pepper. flavour is mostly the same, lots of caramel and peaches, with a touch of pale malts and quite a bit of alcohol in the light-bitter floral-hoppy finish. thin-bodied with lively carbonation.

4/13/2011 1:40:20 PM Bottle at home. Gold amber body with medium head. Nose of malts and spices. Taste also quite spicy up front, gets more caramel like and then fizzy in the finish. Sort of a strange ale, this one.

Beertobealive (362) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a beige head with candy aroma. Light Amber colored body. Quite bitter in mouth with IPA hints, but refreshing with nice carbonation. Good average beer to match a summer diner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
