[Bottle from Bjarne.] A true bomb, which exploded all over the kids table to the vejfest. More like an belgian abbey ale with all those fruitnotes, caramel, dried berries, sweetness and heavy alcohol percentage. Good surprise, Bjarne!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, pours a murky orange amber with a small off-white head. Nose is super infected and oxidized - lots of vinegar and acetic notes. Flavour is along the same lines - tastes more like an acetic, vinegary sour beer. Not a disaster but not very pleasant. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
SWING-TOP 33 CL from ned and artemb. Deep red and slightly hazy, small tan head. The aroma is a bizarre yet nice combination of sweet fruit liqueur and clove-like spice. The taste is very sweet, candied fruit, a touch of alcohol and light spice in the finish. With all the sweetness, the beer does not feel sticky or cloying. Very good.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Cousin Uri for the bottle! Hazy, fizzy brown. A little spicy and caramel aroma and a little alcoholic. Alcoholic, sugary and sweet taste. Smooth and silky, very sugary and full-bodied.

Bottle, 330 ml from u Medvidku, Prague. Courtesy of and shared with JFK. Pours amber brown with tan head. Caramel malty aroma with fruity citric notes. Sweet caramel malty flavor, ripe fruit, raisins, acidic note. I’m not a fan of sweet beers so this was a pleasant surprise because I expected even more sweetness. Interesting.
