danielyabu (1260) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 28, 2014
large fizzy white head. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. sparkling hazy thick dark yellow body. aroma: moderate malty, caramel, orange, lime, cinnamon. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic chalky finish. Aroma metálico surge como defeito, mas bem cheirosa, em geral – passa de adocicado a azedo em um segundo momento. Saboroso dulçor frutado (lembra pêra), com leve fundo maltado e caramelado. Background com forte metalizado surge como defeito. Amargor gredoso atenua um pouco aquele defeito, balanceando o dulçor até o final do gole. Traz o charme belga. Após aquecer, o metalizado diminui. 60 s

33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a thick white head. Fruity and floral hops, caramel and malt in the aroma. Average carbonation and light to medium body. Overall, a nice brew.

serjaymz (92) - Istanbul, TURKEY - SEP 18, 2014
Istanbul, şişe. Görüntü devasa beyaz köpüğü ile çok hoş. Renk sarı-portakal, bulanık.. Gazlılık iyi.. Koku tatlı malt, hafif topraksı.. Tadım tatlı malt, hafif mahoşluk, bitirişte aromatik acılık.. Rahat içimli keyifli bir bira. Orta gövdeli, alkolünü hissettirmiyor.. Dengeli.. Damakta kalıcılık çok baskın değil ama zayıf ve kısa da değil..
