Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piekna barwa, miedziano bursztynowa, metna i piekna czapowata piana gwaltownie rosnaca ze az trzeba uwazac przy nalewaniu. Piwo smaczne tresciwe wytrawne i bardzo gozkie. Zaskakujace i umilajace wieczorek. Gorycz wyczuwalna i lekko drazniaca podniebienie, lekka jablkowa slodowosc, wytrawnosc podczas picia dominujaca jednak. Jak na Belgie bardzo gozkie piwo, a alkohol wogole nie wyczuwalny, to standard wsrod dobrych belgijskich piw. Polecam.

11-SEP-2015, draft @Delirum Basement, with Ulkløbben. Hazy amber with a creamy, off-white, lasting, lacing head. Grape fruit and pine and very malty as well with toast, bread and caramel. Red ale like. Sweet and bitter, clearly dry hopped. Nice.

jamestulloch (2698) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden/amber body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of resin, boozy orange and toffee. Flavour of pine needles, peppery spice and flowery hops. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Reminds me of Lagunitas’ Maximus. Very good.
