Bottle, Quinns, Camden Town. A wee gem from Kevin’s fridge. Bottled. Golden amber colour, decent off white beige head, some lacing. Great hoppy aroma. Really crisp and refreshing taste. Flavour has some fruit and hops. Good finish All in all a great session ale.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 21, 2011
33cl bottle. Hazy orange with big white head. Nose : Fruity fragaria, caramel and banana. Yeast. A bit like an old bread. Sip : Oily, almost mouthful but drinkable. The carbonation is lively. Little sweet with aromas of sour yeast and spices like clove. Ending with finely bitter hops. Refreshing beer , reminds of a spicy saison.

corkyrory66 (1426) - BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2014
Bière de seulement 5,5 % abv, qui est une spéciale en fermentation haute avec du maïs … Couleur doré soutenu à ambre clair. Clarté avec un tout fin voile. Bulles fines partout. Mousse blanche qui nappe. Arômes de malt, houblon très joli, épice fine, prune blanche, croute de pain. 1ère bouche souple avec une belle entrée sur le malt surtout, et une épice. Arrière-bouche sur une nuance blé épicé. 2ème sur un ensemble travaillé comme un bouquet garni. 3ème avec de jolies nuances mais la bouche est un peu aqueuse. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, très douce. La longueur est d’un goût très léger, mais avec de belles choses. L’ensemble n’a aucune fausse note, mais un peu de faiblesse. La levure est douce, fine, juste pour le niveau. L’alcool est très léger, juste un peu plus qu’une pils … Il ne peut travailler les saveurs. La finale tient le coup, mais sans vraie surprise. CONCLUSION : bière trop légère sur la longueur. Les belles nuances qu’elle avait montrées auraient pu donner d’autres développements, mais le niveau abv très faible l’a complètement empêché. Dommage.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2012
330 ml bottle, as Witkap Pater Special, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Pours very fizzy with a hude white head. Pleasant fruity and spicy aroma, "typically Belgian", also notes of kandij sugar syrup. The flavour is spicy and refreshing, not too sweet, but the finish is a bit short. Overall very enjoyable.

Vighals (3255) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014
Lys brun klar med høyt hvitt skum. Sur eddiklukt, fruktig bak den første sure starten. Syrlig litt vinøs smak, bitterheten kommer mot slutten.

rdb84 (559) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Slightly murky amber color with golden hue, frothy lasting head, large brown sediments which are a bit unpleasant to the eye. A: nice bitter malty presence which reminds of Pilsener, with a gentle sweet caramel undertone. Citrus and pine notes, wood notes. Inviting. T: interesting take on the Speciale Belge style. Starts quite crisp and malty, with some citrus and oatmeal notes. Develops a sweet taste with caramelized malts, wood notes, faint fruit notes, mostly peach. Medium body. Aftertaste reveals the typical Speciale Belge sweet bitter taste. Aftertaste is quite dry. Considering I am not a big fan of the style, I really enjoyed this one.

oh6gdx (25465) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head, which leaves A LOT of lace. Aroma is very much American hops, thought of an American Pale Ale when I took the nose samlple of this one (yes, I poured my nose too deep...). Flavour is yeast, some hops and slight caramel malts. Very pleasantly balanced, but at the sametime very refreshing.
