Bière en l’honneur de la reine Svea des pays nordiques. Couleur ambre soutenu, quasi caramel. Clarté nette. Bulles fines, pas nombreuses et extrêmement lentes à la montée, curieux mais joli. Mousse beige claire qui nappe le liquide. Arômes de fruité frais, candi brun, avec une pointe de framboise et d’orge frais. Volume très doux de la 1ère bouche faite d’abord d’une jolie pointe épicée et un rien poivrée, sur des fruits (abricots, poires). Arrière-bouche pleine de malt et levure, avec des traces d’agrumes. 2ème bouche plus soyeuse, toujours délicate, mais construite (Struise twist). 3ème bouche où les céréales prennent le relai, avec des houblons précis, amers et fleuris à la fois. Amertume très classe. Longueur où on découvre beaucoup de choses, même sans chercher... Levure soft, lisse, à la très belle amertume. Alcool très bien, alors que je l’aurais pensé faible au départ (7 % abv). Finale avec des nuances de figues fraîches, fruits secs. Une bière tellement riche que l’on est certain de découvrir d’autres saveurs à la prochaine dégustation. Ce genre de bière ne peut recevoir qu’une note maximale (puisque l’on ne rachète que les meilleures bières, sauf à être sado ...)

Aroma afruitat, cítric i herbàci. Textura sedosa i maltosa. Elegantment amarga. Final llarg i agradable. Molt ben equilibrada. Es nota la finura de la casa. Molt ben feta. Una joia poc valorada.

It has a lot of different favors that get along together. So it makes one meta-flavor that’s doesn’t let you think about what is in the beer because you are to focused on enjoying it.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - JUN 4, 2013
Pours amber with red highlights; clear, with white foam head. Freshly fruity notes, grainy, sweet and spicy. Very thin bubbles, smoothy and creamy palate. Full bodied, cereals, subtle noble hops, flowery notes. Aftertaste full of yeast and malt. Perfect balance, fantastic beer. What a freaking brewery guys. They brew the best brews: buy them all !

Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein courtesy of Travlr. Pine, grapefruit and toffee malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with small head. Slightly sweet caramel and bitter pine hops flavor. Nice blending. Excellent.

Very well balanced - notes of grass, also a nice malt sweetness. The hop balances this out with a dryish mouthfeel - not too much carbonation. I think the rye jumps out in the end, towards the back. I can find the oats. Perfect on a nice spring evening.

drpimento (3183) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Neat and different take on an IPA. Poured at a good temperature with a voluminous, cream-colored, foamy, frothy, billowy, fluffy, textured head that just sits there and lots of clingy lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with some particulates and oodles of extremely tiny bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, wet cardboard, resin, yeast. Flavor’s like nose and has a very balanced package of sweet, bitter, and tang to appreciate. It’s a little understated while delivering the goods. Body is good, although there is a mineral quality that accents some bitter & tang highpoints that are a touch coarse. Finish is like flavor, a bit boozy, and on the long side. Good beer.

Bottle. Head is almost white and settles quickly. The beer is a dark, slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is yeasty and sweet. Tastes a bit malty, sweet (sugar) and some hops. Carbonation is medium, overall a pretty smooth mouthfeel. Finish has hints of sugar, smooth bitterness and a bit dry. All in all, this is a nice beer. However, not what I expect from and IPA.

Murky brown body and light tan, frothy head. Rich grapefruit aroma, residual sweetness, oatmeal cookies and more forest hops. Really nice. Quite some bitterness but fully balanced by the rich malts that provide great texture. If anything it could use even more malts, the support is there. Like a great car chassis with just too little power. Bit of a sticky ending. Very tasty, suits me well. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)
