MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2015
(bottle, 33cl, gusher) Hazy, golden coloured hue with floaties and a mid-sized and off-white foamy head. Yeasty, fruity malty aroma with notes of overripe fruits, vinous and delicately oaky and mouldy accents. Sweet flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly sugary malty base with juicy notes of fruit punch, shades of caramel and alcohol, accompanied by discreetly oaky notes; sweet malty and slightly sticky finish with lasting fruity, punchy notes and alcohol. Okay. 22.IX.15

MarcoDL (3087) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle at Kulminator. Golden pour, small white head. Aroma of honey, grain and vanilla. Taste has a lot of grainy honey at first, then the bourbon vanilla kicks in. Good combination of honey and bourbon. It’s uncommon to age blonde beers, but this works quite well.

Dark (39) - FRANCE - MAY 12, 2015
Blonde avec une belle mousse blanche peu persistante. Nez désagréable, porté sur l’alcool fort avec un léger côté "poussiereux". Arôme légers de vanille, d’épices avec une prédominance du miel. L’alcool est très présent, niveau persistance arômatique cette bière se montre très courte en bouche. Aucune amertume ni acidité à signaler, le côté douceâtre du miel l’emporte sur une finale lourdement alcoolisée. On aurait apprécié, pour une "oak", un peu plus d’acidité car là c’est franchement dur à boire, d’ailleurs je n’ai pas fini mon verre. Bourrin et sans finesse, dommage.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2015
Hazy amber color with a nice refined lasting beige head. Sediments floating in the beer. Aromas are fruity with peach and wood notes and also alcohol; complex. Flavor is fruity and brandy alcoholic with a long end. Low carbonation and very thick body.
