delomixal (12) - - MAY 7, 2012
Classic APA with caramel, malty aroma, kind of citrucy and floral. The boltle of 750ml contains pale and hazy unfiltered beer with a white, medium lasting head of average carbonation. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness at a well balanced medium body with a bitter, but not too bitter aftertaste. I will drink this again.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2016
33 cl bottle at Beer Time in Athens (€ 7.50 - WTF is up with that insane price?!?). BB 14.09.2016. Pours all foam at first, creamy white. As it slowly recedes, a dark amber, hazy body appears. The aroma is jammy fruity. Kissell... or sweet strawberry marmalade. Something strange about it. Not sure if the Belgian yeast. Sweet jammy marmalade and caramel flavour. Medium body. Dryish palate. Seems alright... rather mediocre, if not sub-par, which furthermore makes the price look outrageous. But, eh, in warm weather it’s perfectly drinkable.

Color amber-hazy. Nice malty aromal. Kind of bitter-sweet, nice taste in general with a medium, easy going body . Very good beer in general!

Brew_Cat (117) - Athens, GREECE - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle at a craft beer testing session. pours hazy amber with off-white head. Notes of spices, clove, grapes, some smokiness detected. Carbonation is a bit too much for my taste. Roasty malts, herbal notes, maybe pine.

Brentv (601) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2015
From bottle. Pours hazy red with a small whitish head. Aroma and taste of a bit of caramel, fruits, a bit of cherry?, and a hint of funk - but just a hint. Taste has a slight sweetness, but a stronger hoppy bitterness without being bitter. Medium mouthfeel, definitely carbonated.

minutemat (3609) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
330ml bottle, thanks to Rouhlas, Pours murky brown with short-lived off-white head. Aroma is murky caramel and sweet malts. Taste is nutty, grainy, malty, some caramel and dried fruits. Not quite ’hip hoppy’ as the label says, but not unpleasant. Just a bit bland and lacking character.

GenkiGonzo (929) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle brought back from Santorini. Hazy amber with little head. Aroma starts with sweet, yeasty fruit with some hops. Drinks like a malty Belgian ale. Not the style I expected, but nice.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2015
Hazy to cloudy light amber with a decent fluffy head. Aroma is malty, caramel. Medium sweet with an average bitter finish, actually some fruity american kind of hops, probably dry infused. Average carbonation, medium body. Quite ok, but neither really refreshing nor very complex. Thanks to my sister for bringing me this from Santorini!

CloakedDagger (1665) - - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Clean, sweet burned caramel in the nose. Medium body, sweet caramel notes but very clean and balanced with a decent amount of hops so nothing ever gets cloying or anything. Actually a very well made Amber. 100815
