33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours clear golden with a white head. Fruity and acidic with somewhat vinous or at least cider like notes. Medium sweet and quite fruity with fermented apples, some acidity and a light bitterness. Somewhat refreshing, but not quite my style.

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Kolor jasnozloty, lekko opalizujace. Piana bardzo obfita, ale szybko opada do cienkiej warstewki. W aromacie przede wszystkim intensywne nuty bakterii kwasu mlekowego, w tle przebijaja nuty owocow i gumy balonowej. W odczuciu polpelne, bardzo gladkie, ale brakuje mu troche wysycenia. W smaku glownie przyprawy i banany, na finiszu delikatna kwasnosc i nuty Lactobacillus. Goryczka niska, ziemista, ziolowa. Nie wiem czy mialo tak byc, czy to przypadkowe zakazenie, ale wyszlo bardzo smacznie.

Są takie style piwa, ktre muszą mieć dobrego przedstawiciela, żeby mnie do siebie przekonać! Belgian Strong Ale do nich należy. Musi być naprawdę porządny i umieć zakamuflować swoją moc. I myślę, że w tym przypadku jest całkiem nieźle! Złoty kolor, z niewielką białą pianą. W aromacie słd i owoce tropikalne. W smaku nieco karmelu, owocowa goryczka i rozgrzewający charakter alkoholu. Dość wysokie wysycenie. Przyzwoite piwo!

Not too outspoken Strong Belgian Ale. Good bitterness and an aroma of alcohol.

Svesse (6901) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
(Bottle, Delirium Caf, 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 (4724) - 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.

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.
