mutz (1025) - NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Donkergeel/amber,veel koolzuur. Ruikt metaalachtig na koud inschenken, later ook moutig en wat gedroogd fruitig. Smaakt vrij zoet met wat lichtzure tonen, moutig en een beetje dun mondgevoel. Niet zo geweldig.

rikstar (2563) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2014
0,33l fles meegebracht op aa uitje 2014. Amberkleurig troebel bier met een fijne witte schuimkraag. Geur zoetzuur, ruikt naar marmalade en iets prikkelend. Smaak is zoet, met een zuurtje vol met alkoholwarmte sinaasappelschillen uitstekende body al is de smaak niet helemaal niet mijn ding

Une bire grand cru fait toujours plaisir voir et bien sr dguster... Bon niveau abv de 9 %. Couleur ambre claire. Texture comportant un lger voile de levure. Bulles par dizaines en colonne au centre. Mousse beige crmeuse qui nappe le breuvage. Armes de malt caramel, houblon fleuri, prune blanche, pain gris, pelure de poire. 1re bouche soyeuse avec un beau complexe malt/houblon. Arrire-bouche pleine, savoureuse avec un peu de cannelle. 2me avec de belles nuances sur plusieurs malts. Arrire-bouche complexe. 3me dune grande ampleur: malt, miel, fleur des bois, pice muscade. Arrire-bouche longue, harmonieuse. La longueur propose un grand ensemble malt, de trs haut niveau. Superbe. La levure est douce, belle, mielleuse. Lalcool fait un magnifique travail de soutien. La finale est avec des accents dpices dans un accord malt/houblon superbe. Conclusion: un trs grand uvre, un chef doeuvre. Une bire vraiment de 1er cru, ou de 1er brassin si on prfre...

Christos (5559) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a trappist glass. ABV 9% Pours a dark orange in colour beer, with two full fingers of off-white head. Body is clear with nice activity in it. Head has a good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass after it has collapsed. Aroma is grainyand very malty with obvious alcohol in it. Taste is sweet and very malty as well, but in spite of the sweetness is smooth and very drinkable. A touch of bitterness at the end and on the aftertaste. The alcohol here very well hidden.After it warms up the little grainy notes on the taste seem to disappear and get replaced by fruity notes of peaches and ripe stone fruits, some spices too. Medium to full body, good carbonation. Overall a good beer, needs some time to breath in order to shine.
