Had on tap at 99 bottles, santa cruz. Pours golden with thin head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor is way too sweet and tons of alcohol. Pretty much just awful. Only drank half my glass.

Can. Maple syrup hue; frothy cream-colored head. Aroma is heavy with raisin pulp, followed by dashes of brown sugar and tangy teriyaki. The front of the flavor has the impression of a fairly standard dubbel spiked with lime--citric tang grips the sides of the tongue. This drops off dramatically at the swallow, and you’re left with a malty character and notes of maple, brown sugar and figs. Alcohol is noticeably chest-warming but doesn’t overpower the flavor. Not bad, but certainly a little odd.

Poured from keg at Junkyard, half-pint shared with Finn. Red-brown coloured body. Bare naked surface. Smell of black currant and caramel. Berries flavours added by spices and honeyed caramel. Well bodied with warmth from the alcohol. Heavy stuff, nice sipper (Saturday pub crawl in Nottingham 20.02.2016).

Fra fat på Junkyard i Nottingham 20 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Dyp amber. 0 skum. God aroma av svisker. Søt plommesmak. Luftig. Lite variasjon. Vel mye kullsyre. Lett sherrypreg.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cannette. Bière d’un rouge profond parfaitement translucide et surmontée d’un mince anneau blanc sale. Aucune effervescence du fond de mon verre. Peu de signes de vie dans mon verre. Arômes végétales d’aloès, de gazon et de fleurs. Peu de houblons ont survécu à l’ajout des ingrédients qui composent ce bouquet vert qui me rappelle certains thés ou tisanes. Goût de savon et/ou de shampoing, de lavande et d’eucalyptus. L’attaque est puissante et très herbacée. L’alcool n’est pas très bien dissimulé. Pas mauvais mais loin d’être bien bon.

Can from the Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Pours cloudy brown with a beige head. The taste is sweet yet sharp. Lime and corriander are particularly evident. An nteresting beer with plenty of flavours going on, but it’s not one I’d be in a rush to try again. The flavour is perhaps a little harsh.

Fresh can drunk Summer 2012
I hate traditionalists, and I love experimentation, but....but....kaffir lime....in a Belgian Dubbel?????Yes, they have succeeded in being uncommon. Congratulations. Pushing the envelope is great. Throwing a bunch of random shit against the wall to see what sticks in a whole nother thing. This did not stick. Sweet (too much so) with more of an underfermented amber ale flavor than that of a Belgian ale. Lemongrass is overdone, lime is overdone, coriander is overdone. Wow. Fortunately I was given this to try and did not spend money on it. Friend couldnt give the rest of the 4 pack away. Another big yikes. If you’re going to ruin a beer or go over the top, at least make it fun (Crime and Punishment come to mind, maybe some Brew Dog stuff, etc....)

Can from world beers. Pours a dark reddish brown. Very little head. Scent is somewhat fruity. Taste is dark fruits. Finish is a bit sour. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of spices and a bit tartness. Taste is fresh and spicy, but dark at the same time. Lemongrass, yes, Kefir - maybe that’s where the tartness comes from. A super-special beer. I like it.
