Silvan7 (583) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @ home. Schiuma beige fine abbastanza persistente. Birra ramata carica, solo lievemente velata. Aroma fruttato, di mela cotta, latte, lievito, mandorla ed un po’speziata (coriandolo). Gusto dolce abboccata, poco acida. Abbastanza amara. Tostata, con gusto di lievito e frutta secca (noce). Speziata di coriandolo. Astringente, poco corposa, calda e carbonata. Abbastanza equilibrata (sembra annacquata) e armonica.

Mothroy (50) - - NOV 27, 2013
Mid Brown colour with a thin, tin head. Not a lot in the aroma, just alcohol. Thinnish flavour with figs, honey and a little ripe malty. A slight sour note becoming more apparent in the finish, which is surprisingly clean. Remains refreshing throughout despite the high alcohol content.

Swaroga (1114) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2013
33cl bottle. Hazy dark orange/brown with medium to big head. NOSE : tart with spices like clove and cinnamon. Dried fruits like figs, raisins and banana. Vanilla and toffee. Cooked fruits like plums and pears. SIP : medium body with creamy and fluffy texture. The carbonation is decent. Sweet and fruity start. Spicy background. Middle reveals some dried and cooked fruit aromas. Sour is more and more appearing with clove like aftertaste. OVERALL : interesting and easy to drink. Complex but not cloying and overwhelming. Quite OK.
