COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Willemoes Ale with licorice. The ale is produced from the finest Dansih malt, brewed with top fermenting yeast, and the finest hop from American hop plants. The taste is balanced with brown sugar and licorice, so the right balance between sweetness and body is gained.

Flott skum! Litt syrlig start. Fyldig og rundt. Mildt, med en viss søtlighet. Noe brent smak, noe frukt (plomme). Litt lakris (er tilsatt). Lang. Blir tørr langt ute. Humlen kunne kanskje vært litt bedre, men ellers var det mye bra her.

Very interesting beer. Nose is very metallic and off putting: but it has a nice deep brown color and frothy beige head. Taste is sweet but in no way sickly. It doesn't taste like licorice per say but it counterbalances the sweetness to give a coffee toffee taste. Not my style but good on a winters night!

The fist sip will leave you embarrassed. This is not an ale as I would expect it. No hops rubbing your palate, a sweetish maltiness fills up your moth and a uncommon, yet intense taste of licorice. And yes, they add licorice to this ale… Unfortunately not the sharp licorice that suits a lot of other beers, it’s a sweet licorice. Sort of "drop" which is soooo much liked by dutch children. But here... nor the children (they are not yet allowed to), nor myself really like it. Maybe becaose the harmony between the different If the maker of the Haribo Lakritzschnecken would brew a beer - this would most likely be the result. The biggest error you could make, is trusting the label and awaiting an real Ale.

Bottle. Nice clear brown color, with a medium, fine brown head. Nose is Sweet malty, heavy, dried fruits, toffee. Sweet taste, only light bitter, with a bit sourness. Medium texture, with flat carbonation. Aftertaste is somewhat earthy, maybe liquorice, not bad.

floydian1 (1063) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 27, 2014
500ml bottle in Hamburg (BB 7/3/15). Brown colour with a decent beige head that laces soapily. Fragrant sweet aromas with caramel, molasses, dark fruits and a touch of coffee and liquorice. Tongue is sweet and malty with a very mild dry hop finish. Palate is quite light for the ABV with a soft carbonation. Quite quaffable despite the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, reddish, dark copper-ish brown colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, modrately lacing, off-white head. Strawy aroma with traces of animalistic metabolism end-products, cautious hints of red berries. Taste is dry, minimally fruity, a touch of red berries over a dry undefinable grainy-strawy-malty basis.

edpeg (838) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle 05,l. My bottle says ABV 5,2% Nice amber deep reddish body , beige head, some lacing. Aroma , malts, caramel, some licorice. Palate is medium, crispy and soft, carbonation mouthful. Taste is sweet and malty, with some sugary toners, papery hoppy bitterness and stickiness. Finish is dry and sticky and somewhat bitter. Overall a disappointment, the combination is more of stale, flavors unclear, and sugary sweet maltiness is off putting. At ABV 5,2% it tastes like 10% ABV sugar added heavy lager, with only character being the headache.
