kermis (5870) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, burnt plastic and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Pretty nasty but maybe a bad bottle. Didn’t seem infected but I expect better than this from Viven.

danielyabu (1282) - Uniăo 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 pęra), 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.
