Tobiasoe (70) - NORWAY - JAN 24, 2014
Large frothy sustained off-white head over a clear nut-brown-red beer. Medium plus aroma intense offering of banana, rose hip, sweet malt with some herby hay and faint sourness. Medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little oily on the palate with bitterness dominating other flavours that include bread, anise or such spices, discreet fruit, hollow midpalate. The bitterness feels a little crude and impure, something faint metallic, finish a bit short, otherwise it’s an ok beer with useful weight and refreshing qualities.

Benzai (12159) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear reddish color, small white head. Aroma is a bit weird. Hard to describe: lightly malts, toffee, toasted malts, slightly leaves. Taste toasted malts, slightly leaves, a herbal bitterness and again something weird I can’t put my finger on. Medium body and carbonation. .

Bottle @ Benzai during Ned - Col. Slightly hazy orange to amber colour with a medium to big sized off-white head. Smells herbs, malts, spices, slightly yeasty, slightly minty. Tastes some apricot, tropical fruits, malts, some iron, slightly hoppy. Nice beer! Medium body, soft carbo.

caesar (6297) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
Bottled 6.5%, BB 22.01.15, large sample. Slight hazy amber color, medium lasting off-white head. Aroma of peppery belgian yeast quite typical of st feuillien, hint of licorice and anise, slight flowery hop. Bit dry taste, bit sweet, bit bitter, slight metallic hint. The peppery belgian yeast together with some darker malts seems to give a slight metallic tart finish. Not my kind of beer.

Bière de Pâques pour le pèlerin de Fosses (comprendra qui pourra …). En fait brassée pour les pays nordiques, où le grand froid de l’hiver doit durer jusqu’à Pâques !!! Cette bière est en effet assez typée bière d’hiver pour plusieurs raisons que nous allons voir. Le niveau d’alcool est modeste (7,5 % abv) mais très correct pour le bébé, tel qu’il nous est présenté par la brasserie Friart. Couleur roux foncé magnifique. Clarté nette. Bulles plutôt fines pas nombreuses mais constantes. Mousse beige très crémeuse, stable à 1 cm. Arômes d’épices en 1, muscade, malt caramel, candi brun, pointe de cerise noire et cire de meuble. 1ère bouche ample sur les céréales et les épices, à la texture vraiment veloutée. Dominante de pain d’épices. Arrière-bouche pleine. 2ème bouche toujours avec ce côté exotique (qui correspond aux bières d’hiver), entre le candi et le sirop d’érable. 3ème bouche avec une pointe d’anis étoilé et de Ricard …. Arrière-bouche de fruits mûrs, miel, crème de marrons. La longueur présente une superbe texture veloutée constamment. La dominante se maintient sur l’anis au départ, puis avec l’oxygénation de la bouteille (si on prend une petite après-midi pour la déguster....) on trouve beaucoup plus d’équilibre. On arrive à un niveau superbe de saveurs et de densité (propres aux bonnes bières d’hiver, mais vous voyez qu’il n’est pas déplaisant de les déguster en plein mois d’août, même très chaud (33,9 °C pointé à l’ombre à 18 heures …). Levure sombre, forte, bien structurée, parfaitement adaptée. Alcool qui constitue un bon support aux propos du pèlerin …. Finale qui fait découvrir encore de nouvelles saveurs bien pleines et très équilibrées. Conclusion : une bière de niveau supérieur incontestablement, qui gagne beaucoup à être oxygénée fortement (et peut-être vieillie... je le saurai plus tard...). Elle perd un accessit par son côté exagérément anisé en 3ème bouche et en début de longueur, mais elle se remet dans un parfait chemin (du pèlerin) en finale. Merci St Feuillen....

Cunningham (6441) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2013

Appearance: I do not know if I have ever seen such a good looking beer as this one! Clear (or hazy with bottom sediments) deep orange brownish (or orange red amber – difficult to describe) color with a fine white head that leaves a fine lacing. Well probably it had a little cognac look a like color.
Aroma: Caramel malty, some yeast and a bit spicy.
Palate: Medium + body. Mild round sweetness, and a moderate bitterness. Average to soft carbonation.
Taste: A bit sweet malty, mild fruity, yeast and some spices. Well hidden alcohol.
Overall impression: A fine and very well balanced Belgian strong ale. Fresh and tasty. You just want more. And god damn good looking as well!
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettorder, Norway.

Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a clear orange amber colour, with a light beige medium head. There is a lot of anise in the aroma along with other spices, a little hay and caramel, and Belgian yeast in the background. The taste is similar with the addition of citrus, hops and more Belgian yeast. Mouth feel is smooth and rich, with a light to medium bitterness. The beer is complex enough and has a nice balance and is sweet and spicy.

ClubGonzo (5089) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle, shared with Foffern. Clear amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is star anis, sugary raisins, candi sugar, hints of caramel and syrup. Sweet, but barely acceptable. Taste is bitter herbal star anis tones up front, then licorice, candi sugars and hints of caramel. Despite the sweet flavors, it somehow retains a certain balance; perhaps due to the spice additions. Medium body and carbonation. Nice, but only if you’re a fan of anise flavors in beer.
