Soulved (18) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle served in a trappist glass. Ruby colored brew with a medium head. The head doesn?t last long and leaves no lacing. Smells like honey, alcohol and dried fruits.Tastes sweet and sour with some forest fruits in there.Has a boozy sweet finish which I liked the most about this beer.Overall a decent Grand Cru

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle beers of Europe. Medium sourness, with cherry notes. Yeasty, surprisingly easy drinking for a 9% beer, almost verging on thin. Some good background biscuit, accompanying a rich malty earthiness.

Silvan7 (633) - 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.
