kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a large frothy white head, nice retention. Typical Belgian Blond nose, not wholly unlike Hopus with it’s fresh floral hops. Supposedly just arrived at Kulminator, just released one week before I consumed it. Almost Tripel-ish in flavor, rather sweet and fruity with a moderate alcohol presence. Light floral hops, but only on the finish are they noticable. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, lingering spice notes further remind me of a Tripel. Leans to the sweeter side overall. Nice beer, but not a great one.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, small to average to large and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and fruitiness with citrus/oranges and light spiciness (pepper, coriander) and yeast. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness with some citrus, some spiciness and hoppyness, some yeast. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light fruitiness and some spiciness, citrus, some hoppyness with light alcohol. Lightly sweetish strong ale with citrus and sharp spiciness. Bit one-dimensional, spiciness dominates too much in the finish. Not too sweet though.
