Licht nevelig, amberkleurig bier met witte, blijvende schuimkraag. Aroma is bloemig en kruidig, met hinten van rood fruit (bessen). Smaak is vooral bitter, met een lichte neiging naar het zure van oud bruin. Prima gebalanceerd. Medium koolzuur, niet heel veel body en een beetje waterig.

adasko (1204) - 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 16ºSRM. 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.

jamaty (1541) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Chapa dorada. Bonito color coñac, bastante opaca y con una buena espuma de tres dedos muy duradera y que tiene la peculiaridad de tener un dos tonos, el base beige y alguna manchas cafe. Aroma muy potente. Cuerpo medio y muy agradable sabor frutal con toques de caramelo. Muy bebible.

brnandersen (2699) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2015
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber colour with a reddish tinge. Thin, off- white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, caramel malts, toasted notes and herbal, berry-like tones. Taste is lighty bitter. Medium body with a slick texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with berries, yeasts and a herbal bitterness. Nice Belgian.
