Le brun cuivré éclatant de sa robe est le préambule d’un univers de douceur et de rondeur. Le nez malté, légèrement fruité, concorde parfaitement avec un goût orienté vers des saveurs « caramel ». Soutenue à tous niveaux, elle reste très équilibrée. Une très légère note de torréfaction nous surprend toutefois en fin de bouche. Première bière produite par la brasserie, sa rondeur rappelle le plaisir et nous invite à passer un moment simple de dégustation.

Colore ramato, leggermente velata, schiuma beige, fine e persistente. All’olfatto cereale, caramello, tostato, torrefatto, leggero cioccolato, fondo di caffè, e un pizzico di erbaceo. Al palato ritroviamo gli stessi sentori tutti ben presenti con un finale amaro erbaceo e di frutta secca piuttiosto persistente

Swaroga (1634) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2012
75cl bottle. Hazy red amber with medium head. Nose : Tart with notes of yeast and aromatic hops. Sip : very sweet with tart flavor and some esters, develops more pronounced hop aromas of citrus , banana, peach. It’s a very sweet beer and not really in my taste. I will not be too annoyed to finish the bottle though.

Benzai (9619) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2012
75cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy amber color, average sized off-white to beige, a bit creamy head. Smell a light sour hint, a light sweetish hint, but mostly red winey. Taste malts, wine and something else I can’t wuite put my finger on. Medium body, medium carbo.

Bottle thx to benzai. Copper to ruby colour with a medium, creamy off-white head. Smells overwhelmingly sweet, alcohol, red wine, very malty and some hops. Tastes white wine, barley, malts, sweet. Full body, okay carbo. It?s a good beer, but at the same time very much not what i like.
