ruigo (1412) - PORTUGAL - DEC 9, 2014
50cl bottle two weeks out of date. Clear brownish amber colour with a nice off-white head. Caramel, toffee, malt and dried fruits in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side with light bitterness. Overall, a very good beer. Probably the best Alt I had so far.

Beerhunter111 (9677) - Hasborn, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2014
Leicht dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit viel weißem Schaum, der stabil ist und sich lange hält. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, florale Aromen. Geschmack leich röstmalzig mit etwas Karamell, im Mittelteil dann hopfig bitter, unangenehm metallisch, zum Abgang hopfig würzig.

Een helder amberkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Aroma is nootachtig. Karamel in de mond, hoppige afdronk met lichte bitterheid.

Calisky (1453) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from trade with McTapps Couleur caramel sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez caramelisé, note beurrée.. Gout caramel un peu grillé, bonne amertume, note noisettes, forte carbonation. Fin longue caramel, un peu de levure. Pas mal!

ElManana (898) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
First Altbier I had, thanks McTapps for the bottle. Pours dark orange, brown maybe with a big head. Nose is malty, yeast, some dark fruit. Taste is more malt, bread, caramel combined with a nice bitterness that really does wlel int his beer. Good stuff.

Erzengel (4967) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
Der Antrunk ist süffig-wässrig-süßlich. Im Hauptteil wässrig und leicht röstmalzig-trocken. Sehr süffig. Die wässrige Note überwiegt auch im Nachgeschmack, dazu kommen ein paar schöne röstmalzige Alt-typische Aromen, die sich ziemlich lange auf der Zunge halten. Ein paar feinherbe Züge schwingen mit.
Gutes Altbier, aber irgendwie zu weich-süß und einen Tick zu wässrig. 11/13/12/12
