Beer5000 (5640) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a nice, dense white head. Quite mild in aroma, malt and fruit with a hint of cherry. Flavor is mild malty, some cherry, and hint of fruit in general, low bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste. Decent but a bit without any clear direction, not really a fruit beer but difficult to recognize it as anything else either.

TorbenJensen (1414) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2015
Slightly atypical Belgian strong ale, which is not as sweet as expected for Belgian beer. Foam is medium and the flavor is caramel malt. The taste is dominated by caramel, but a little peach / mango can also be sensed in the taste. The sweetness is retained and it is more radical hoppy than usual for Belgian beers. May be served for white meats or poultry.

Svesse (7620) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
(Bottle, Delirium Café, Brussels, 25 Oct 2014) Copper colour with dense, off-white head. Fruity, slightly sourish nose with red berries, caramel, dark fruit and a slight Rodenbach touch. Fruity, slightly tart taste with notes of caramel, red berries, dried apricots and a bitter-sweet finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty beer with a slightly sourish touch. Quite nice.

maekchu (3206) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Gentle but fairly rich sweet fruit nose, some oxidation, and light caramel. Honey brown color, thin head, no lace at all. Sweet fruit, berries, mid palate goes harsh (perhaps even phenolic), fruit reappears, and then it all drops off. Medium body. Okay.

corkyrory66 (1214) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Bière ambrée de 8 % abv (et non 8,5 comme indiqué sur le site). Couleur ambre moyen à roux abricoté. Superbe. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes partout. Superbe. Mousse beige très clair qui forme un nappage très crémeux, velouté. Beau. Arômes de brett, lambic, cerise, pointe de whisky de Campbeltown, girofle, sureau, chêne ciré, éponge humide (on fera avec …). 1ère bouche soyeuse à l’entrée plutôt sur le malt cara, mais vite suivi par une amertume limite acide, un peu sur la Rodenbach. Arrière-bouche très brett et guignolet. 2ème à la texture très agréable, vers le velouté. Equilibre plus important malt/ houblon mais avec une touche lambic, qui vient de façon un peu déconcertante. 3ème à l’équilibre malt/houblon avec un houblon amer perçant type IPA. Arrière-bouche fraîche, avec des fruits rouges et de la pastèque. La longueur amène du bois de fût et plus de présence, mais on est un peu tard pour se fixer dans cette danse alambiquée... La levure est douce, simple mais belle. L’alcool est correct, mais il ne sait à qui s’adresser dans ce breuvage. La finale laisse un peu perplexe sur ce que le brasseur a voulu, bien que des nuances intéressantes apparaissent encore. CONCLUSION : une bière qui a des atouts certains, mais qui part un peu n’importe où. On navigue entre le lambic, la rodenbach, et une ipa, sans trop savoir sur quel pied danser. Bizarre … vous avez dit bizarre ?

Ik heb het geprobeerd op een horeca-beurs in Wallonië, een middelmatig bier, niet veel speciaals aan
