Tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, a bit of sourness. Flavor is a bit sweet, slightly grainy, sort of raw tasting? A bit of a miss.

37,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 11.03.2016
Aroma has earthy notes typical to gueuze and sugary sweetness. Flavour has grapefruit, brown sugar, some earthy tones and citrus. Also some homemade mead vibes. Faro is still not my thing, the sweetness does not fit in.

hackobock (2008) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2015
March 11, 2015. Bottle at home, best before september 10, 2015.
Clear reddish amber with a small frothy, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet with juicy apples, dark sugars, light funky and oaky notes. Taste is medium sweet apples with a light tart finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Positively surprised by this one, better than expected. Straightforward, maybe a bit simple, but good.

Bottle at home thanks to Kraddel, copper pour with sudsy head. Nose is apples and lots of sugar. Tastes of apples, musty, candied sugar, hint of sour. Very sweet not cloying though.

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before 10/07/04. Süßliches Bier mit ein Bisschen Restsäure. Sehr süffig, nicht zu süß, stimmig, könnte aber noch ein bisschen mehr Säure vertragen. Nett.

An okay lambic, more sweet than I’d like, but the subtle funk is pleasant. Golden and crisp.

Fruktig och man känner på aromen att ölet är sött. Första smaken är mer syrlig av äpple men övergår snabbt till en sötare smak.
