tomciccateri (1033) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 6, 2013
On draught at Nob Hill Bar & Grille. Poured in ornate logo’ed goblet. Slight but lasting white head and lace. Deep amber color. Served very cold but estery aromas still evident. Early malty sweetness was well-matched to a mellow hop bitterness. Subtle Belgian yeast character. Overall, seemed like a big blonde or a light tripel. OKAY.

Pours clear straw big white head. Not much lace. Bigger volume malt, straw and light malt. Light body, good carb, fair balance. Bigger than seems. Good beer.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
*Fruchtig-alkoholisches Bier. Gar nicht mal so schlimm. Sehr mild für die 8.5%, kaum Tiefgang. Rund und süffig.

Not too bad but pretty typical. Lots of alcohol upfront and in the end with a tad bit of sweetness.

No tiene mucho aroma, notas a alcohol. Color amarillo, limpio. Sabor alcohólico, grano, alcohol... No destaca ningún sabor especialmente...

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
Bouteille 33cl, BB 11/03/2016. La version porcine de l’éléphant rose de Délirium ... tout un programme et le produit fini s’en retrouve marqué. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme au bouquet très basique, noble, fin fleuri et fruité citronné, minime, le malté reste au niveau carapils, épicé en rétro. Palais est de suite centré sur l’alcool, métallique, avec un profil chiant belge maintes fois revu et pas mal d’amertume se dégageant des grains. Houblon reste léger apportant juste le minimum d’amertume et de caractère. Bref, on s’emmerde, bière de masse.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Aroma is light sweet malts, clove, funk and sour grapes finishing with a small bit of sulphur. Taste is sweet dark fruits like plum and raisins. Balanced very nicely with the hop profile which is clove and lemongrass. Finishes very smoothly. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin lace head that retains fairly well.

50 cl can. Funny artwork. Pale amber with medium head. Not to complex and drinkable.Citrus and malt flavour.A friend of mine from Rennes told me that a lot of people in Bretagne drink this beer cause is a cure for hangover ( I fail to understand that)
