Alengrin (2085) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Amber ale by Struise, made at Deca and belonging to their very first league of beers, from even before the famous Pannepot. Off-white, loose, sticky head, pure amber colour, lightly hazy. Nutty and caramelly malts in the nose, softly sourish wheat, oats, ginger, cloves, grapefruit, peach, dried orange peel. Soft fruity onset, a subtle honeyish presence without becoming actually sweet, subtle acidity adding refreshment and spicy and nutty middle and end phase, with mild herbal hop bitterishness in the finish as well as a certain yeastiness. Nice artisanal beer, but quite clearly not yet at the same height as their later masterpieces.

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
W aromacie karmel, trochę kandyzowanych owoców, i wyraźna żelazistość. W smaku dziwne jak na styl, wysoka, czesko - pilsowa goryczka, brakuje kontry słodowej, brakuje nut od drożdży, jest nieco śliwki węgierki ale to nie ratuje sytuacji. Chyba miałem pecha, wadliwy egzemplarz. Albo słabe piwo.

AdamJackson (2689) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Dark red. Light fluffy head. Mild cherry and bread dough aroma with herbal clove. Sweet up front, mild taste. Not a lot going on. Fig and raisin juiciness definitely a fruity finish. Not bad
