A nice balanced BSA, but I found it a bit thin, especially for 9.5%. Would’ve welcomed a tad more carbonation. Not bad.

Kolor bursztynowy, przymglony. Piana bia?a drobno i ?rednio p?cherzykowa, do?? wysoka o ?redniej trwa?o?ci. Aromat: bardzo s?aby, ma?o wyra?ny, troch? nut chmielowych, troch? kwiatowych i miodowych. Smak: jest bardzo podobnie, ca?o?? ma?o wyra?na, brakuje jakiego? konkretnego akcentu. Goryczka bardzo wyra?na, chmielowa, sucha, trawiasta. Jest do?? d?uga ale nie przeszkadza i nie "?ci?ga". Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

R4N5H (639) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
33cl bottle at Delirium Cafe, Amsterdam on 14-May-2016. Hazy golden amber colour with a medium sized fluffy off-white head. Floral aroma with hops, sweet malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of wholemeal bread, caramel and fruit. Lightly hopped with a slightly bitter finish. A pretty nice ale - closer to a tripel in character and taste.

jamestulloch (3090) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle from Jumbo. Clear golden body with yeast flecks floating beneath a thin white head. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of almonds, herbs and flower stems. Flavour of steel, bitter salt, grass and dried apricot with a sharp, slightly unpleasant finish. Thin to medium body with a slick, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry and sharp. Not great.

I_LUV_BEER (79) - - APR 29, 2016
Served in a tulip from a bottle. pours hazy golden colour with nit much of a head. Aroma is somewhat floral, with clear malts, bread and yeast present. Taste is bready with caramel and pear notes, unfortunately the alcoholic feel is very noticeable. Nicely carbonated but a bit too much on a prickly side, with a pleasant slight bitter aftertaste. Nice enough.

arkanu (44) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 29, 2016
Hazy, somewhat on the yellowish side of amber, with a consistent head that will not go away easily. Overall, it’s a very robust, full bodied beer, with a strong alcoholic feel along with yeast and flowery hops. Taste is yeasty, with hints of lime peels, spices and apricots. Not too bitter, but with a nice aftertaste that’s somewhat sweet, yet still bitter enough. Worth a try!

Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, belgisk jäst, gräs, örter, peppar, citrus, grön banan. Fruktig, stor sötma och alkoholstyrka som slår igenom något, pepprig beska något sträv.
