DrSilverworm (8546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Tasted during Nepenthia. Nice orange peel up front, mild spice. Some earthy character. Caramel. Amber color. Thin off-white head. Bits of lace. Lots of particles in the body. Medium-plus body. Kind of slick. Lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter. Solid fruity belgian ale.

NosirIwont (2140) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 9.0%. No ’best before’ date. 10 cl. sample. Pours an unclear amber/brown with a light tan head. Good lacing. Sour and fruity aroma with a bit of brett. Light metallic overtone. Fruity flavour with a light sourness. Dry, bitter finish, a bit tart. Too much carbonation. Overall okay, but still kind of meh. 01.05.15.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pour on tap at Falling Rock, hazy orange-red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some dark fruit into a bit of coriander, clove, some slight hints of oaky notes with a touch of toast. Taste was a mix of earth, grain, dough into a bit of caramel, some fruity notes into a bit of dark fruit, some red fruits, citrus, finishing slightly dry, slightly sweet.

Degustata in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. Con le cochonne in bottiglia c’è sempre un rischio calcolato... Noi comunque la bottiglia l’abbiamo comprata a Pipaix prima e ci siamo bevuti diverse birre direttamente dal produttore per cui sappiamo qual è il vero sapore e irrinunciabile. Al colore torbida schiuma evanescente color caramello. Il sapore inizialmente dolce, miele con una nota di castagno e zucchero di canna però al palato rimane anche una nota leggermente luppolata. Addirittura oserei dire che si sente un pizzico di lambic. È una birra che si abbina con tutto me vi consiglio di non eccedere dopo il quinto bicchiere gli effetti collaterali sono ingestibili dato il tenore alcolico di nove gradi che si sente non al bicchiere ma in testa. Sopra i 40 anni 5 bicchieri diventano 4... :)
