butelka, warka do A-06-18. ciemny bursztyn, metnawe, z kremowa, bardzo ladna i zostajaca troche na szkle piana. aromaty glownie slodowe - chleb, karmel, miod, ale tez przyprawowosc, slady przejrzalych owocow. w smaku zdziwko - bo niby to co w aromatach jest nadal obecne, ale dominujaca jest kwaskowatosc. Moze jakos nie do konca typowo refermentowalo sobie w butli, ale efekt fajny, bo to jest kwaskowatosc wlasnie a nie kwasnosc. jest tez oczywiscie slodyczy nieco. jest dosc lepka faktura jak na styl zwlaszcza (wlasnie, to jest pozastylowe piwo mam wrazenie, cos bardziej jak amber ale z przyprawmi na europejskich chmielach w odczuciu bardziej niz belgian ale). Dobre. Ale zarazem od Strusi tylko dobre to jednak rozczarowanie

pivnizub (9727) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2015
Bouteille:Hazy to cloudy, ruby-amber coloured, loose ’n lacy off-white head, some floaties visible; sweet caramelly nose, traces of cacao and dried fruits over a light acidity; moderate sweet-bitter flavour with a delicate sourish touch, relatively light bodied for a beer of 6.5% and a bit tart; lingering caramelly and sweet-fruity finish, some yeasty tartness in the aftertaste. Not the best brew from the Spanish Netherlands…

Derbeth (586) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle with expiry date September 2017. Dark brown colour, minimal head with decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, a bit of herbal hops, not very fruity. Light bitterness, not sweet. Medium body, average carbonation. An interesting example of a Belgian beer that is more hoppy than fruity. Good.

Tasting at Maakuns. Thanks to Maakun. Gebrande noten en andere herfstachtige tonen in een cremig geheel, erg lekker. Lust ik nog wel een keer! Backlog from 2015/02/03.

adasko (1337) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 12, 2015
Malty, quite dense aroma with very strong honey notes. It seems nothing special, but it’s so pleasant aroma. It’s copper color beer, a bit hazy, with rather poor head. I think it started to go bad even though it’s best before 2018. It’s already a bit sour, which I think was not intentional, but still - quite pleasant. Except that a bit of roasty toasty notes. No caramel at all, just pure malts, feels really good. It’s rather watery, I was expecting something bigger and more dense. Barely noticeable bitterness. Quite good beer in overall, but I was expecting much more.

330cc bottle. Pours amber with almost no head. Dark caramel really dominant. Also candi sugar/syrup, dried fig. Sweet but with a slightly dry and herbal finish. I missed a more intense carbonation

6%ABV. Belgian Ale. The nose was had a clean sweet, lightly malty aroma, with fresh fruity aromas reminiscent of ripe lychees. No head, and it poured out a deep tea brown of about 16şSRM. Thin malty palate, bright carbonation. No aroma hops. Good quality bitter hops clean and herbaceous coming in and keeping house all the way to the end and slightly beyond. I suspect without this, the Rosse would just be unbearably treacly sweet. Goes on Favorites List

Amber beer with a white head. Hints of caramel and fruit. Sometimes there’s a slightly metallic taste. But nonetheless a nice amber beer.
