   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Svesse (6506) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
(Bottle, Delirium Café, Brussels, 25 Oct 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of tropical fruit, canned pineapple and a fairly sharp malt character. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, pineapple, peaches, marzipan, candy sugar and a certain alcohol bite in the finish. Balanced spicy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Possibly a bit sharp and unbalanced, but quite tasty and nice.

ClubGonzo (4293) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body, small white head. Nose is butterscotch, banana, nuts, sugar and hints of pale malts and caramel. Taste is butterscotch, caramel, pale malts, grains, straw and hints of red berries and banana. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. A bit flawed with strange ester combos, otherwise just kinda boring. Not a winner, in other words.

Tobiasoe (65) - NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Deep light golden beer under a modest white head. Medium minus aroma intensity, scotch-like sweet tones with caramel and butter dominate with a yeasty touch. Ok bitter balance with faint sweetness and acidic touch, lingers well. Decent fresh beer.

kraddel (3731) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle . Pours clear blonde . Ok white foam fades fast . Smell is rather sweet, yeasty . Taste is bitter, with a really interesting and unique fruity note . Is this the yeast ? It reminds me of duchesse de bourgogne. Tastes kindof colapse for me, but all the aspects are very nice . Certainly unique . Weird beer , that is hard to rate .

laurids (12) - - OCT 5, 2014
Yeasty, skunky, strawlike aroma with full, white, dense head. Typical blonde, clear color. Semi-high CO2 level with malty characteristics. Taste is good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Good sweet/bitter balance.

Renobob (1001) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Très typée triple belge avec arômes d'abricot et de pêche. Pas très bien équilibrée, on sent un peu trop l'alcool.
