andriesradu (461) - ROMANIA - JUL 16, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours hazy brown/reddish with a huge mostly diminishing beige head, good lacing. Great fruity aroma, wild strawberries, some alchool and honey as is heats up a bit. Flavor is also sweet, fruity, again wild strawberries and other wild fruits, moderate sticky bitterness with a average duration, the 9.5% can’t be felt at all. Fantastic belgian ale.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2013
Flaske delt med Ovesen: diskret aroma men powerful smak og munnfølelse. De 9% varmer i magen . Mahognyfarge. Saftig, mørk bærsmak og behagelig sødme i ettersmaken, med en snill bitterhet.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 19, 2013
19/05/2013 330ml bottle. Miele, intensa, limpida, schiuma bianca non abbondantissima ma discretamente persistente. Al naso leggero sentore metallico, note di malto, zucchero di canna, frutta rossa e tostato. In bocca è dolciastra, caramello, leggera ciliegia, finale di liquirizia, appena amarognola. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione bassa. Discreta, ma c’è di meglio.

mutz (556) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2013
Donkeramber kleur, veel kraag die plakt en inzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Ik ruik wat moutigs en zoetfruit. De smaak en mondgevoel valt tegen. Heel vlak, lichtmetalig, weinig koolzuur, weinig uitgesproken smaak. Een zwak bier wat mij betreft.

StoutHead (607) - DENMARK - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber, with lots of sediment (could be my pour, though), and a foamy large off-white head. Aroma of malt and notes of citrus. Tastes of malt, caramel, fruits, yeast and a bitter hops. Medium body and lots of carbonation. It’s sweet but has a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not bad.
