mansquito (3678) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: Pours light brown with a beige head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, sugar, and some spices. Taste is a little sweet and spicy. Not that complex. Not bad though. I was surprised by the low rating. It was OK.

Skinnyviking (7317) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle at home. High creamy and good looking long lasting white head. Hazy very dark brown, acutally I thought it was black but held aginst my lamp I could see that it wasn’t the case. Sweet fruity citric bisquit aroma but unfortunately with a heavy alcohol note. Heavily carbonated bitter sweet malt caramel citric spicy flavor with just a hint of liquorice. Long sweet finish.

Bottle pour at Jimmy's 43 battle of the Belgian event. Light tan color with a boozy aftertaste.nice drinking and lighter for a winter beer

Alengrin (2607) - BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Winter ale with stable, sticky, light beige head and deep hazy bronze colour. Aroma of brown sugar, port wine, coriander, pancakes, pear, cinnamon, banana, ginger, cloves. Sweet and fruity taste, candi sugariness, banana, yeasty and spicy with obvious coriander seed, drying finish with herbal hops and port-like warming alcohol. Very cliché - especially considering Johan Brandt’s creations at his former Regenboog brewery - but very decent.

Renobob (1001) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 25, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Plutôt décevante. Alcool prédominant, c’est dommage car ça cache tout le reste. Finale sucrée.

Bottle from a friend. Pours clear amber with hardly any foam. Nose is sourness, grapes with hints of licorice. Taste does not provide the promised sourness but is sweet with licorice.
