Pours murky brown. Lively with thin head and minimal lacing. Banana, raisen,plum and chocolate on the aroma, lots of alcohol and dark fruit with a touch of liquorice. Chewy body. Lots of yeast character all the way through. Interesting and complex.

hrabren (706) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 22, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666, lovely Anja and Goran. Thanks Višnja! Bottle wrapped in paper, with a tag on a string. Brewed in 2012. Pours murky reddish brown, lasting creamy off-white head. Smoky barrel and yeast aromas - banana, vanilla. Sweet, yeasty but then sour with a smoky meat, prosciutto finish. Lasting dry finish, very warming, full body. Simply a great beer, very well made.

Pours a dark caramel brown with a medium head of tan foam. Nice deep wheat flavor with some light malts. Similar flavor to a Dunkelweizen. Refreshing and tasty.

adster (639) - HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2016
Remekül fest a pohárban a híres búzabak, vöröses-rezes beütésű teste fölött krémes hab pihen meg hosszasan. Illatai teltek, intenzívek, mazsolásak és tejszínesek, a belga karakterrel rokonszenvezők szívébe már ennél a fázisnál, és már csak emiatt is belophatja magát. Hasonló súlyú kortyok következnek, komplexek, tökéletesen érettek, mélyek és hosszú utóéletűek. A mazsola, tejszín és az élesztős fátyol itt is meghatározónak bizonyul, karamelles és száraz vörösbor-szerű zamatok teljesítik ki a képet. Igen tartalmas ital, ebben a stílusban jobbat nehezen lehetne alkotni.

majorbase2 (15) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with a good sized foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a thin, bubbly head with no lacing. Lots of chunkies at the bottom. Alcohol comes through strong in the aroma. Fig, grape and cherry come through as well. Lightly roasted malts. Taste is very similar to the nose. Masterfully executed. Fig, cherry and prune are strong here, with presence of banana in the background. Licorice. Very pleasant dark fruit notes linger heavily on the tongue, pairing very nicely with the moderately high alcohol. Medium bodied. Doesn’t end up with as much bite from the alcohol as the aroma suggested. Very easy drinker for the flavor profile and ABV; quite unique in that sense. I easily downed this, and could go for another. Truly sensational beer. A must try.
