Note (2/VI/15): We are splitting them up, today. This is for the "regular" version, that also states blond. If he sold you the "ipa" version, that’s without the word blond on the label, please enter your rating under the other version.

Important: if your rating is under the wrong version, contact and administrator, or enter a correction with the link to your rating, so we can move it.

"In fermento veritas." Bière aux 10 épices (10 spices) BeerMania is not a brewery, the "Mea Culpa" (or Mea Maxima Culpa, the same in 75cl bottle - there is even Ultima Culpa, but that’s an incredibly large artsy glass) is brewed upon Nassers’ own recipe at a Belgian brewery. He declines so far to tell which, until he has all contracts signed and papers worked out...

[backlog] 06-10-15 / 330ml bottle from Beer Mania sotre in Brussels. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.5/5

Boutip (6433) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle (old bottle – 2008 drank in 2016): Poured a clear golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with light fruity ester is pretty enticing considering the age of the bottle. Taste has light oxidation notes with some residual sugar notes with some fruity ester. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable though would probably be better if fresh.

Mates (23) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Butelka, przyjechała z Brukseli. Kolor jasny złoty, wysoka drobna piana szybko schodzi do gęstego kożucha, mocno oblepiając ścianki szkła. Silny aromat propolisu, korzenny, w tle estry owocowe. W smaku na początku goryczkowe korzenne (goździki, pieprz itd) i trochę taki bananowy posmak, który dodaje słodyczy temu dość wytrawnemu piwu. W miarę picia wychodzą też winogrona. Nagazowanie dla tego piwa zdaje się idealne, ładnie współgra z gęstością i paletą smaków. Na ogół wolałbym piwo mniej korzenne, a bardziej owocowe, ale tu wyszło nieźle. Piwo złożone, raczej do degustacji niż seryjnego pochłaniania. Polecam!

mateuszk (2755) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy and orange in colour, white weak head. In aroma fruity, malty with solid oxidation (cardboard). In taste fruity, slightly spicy with low bitterness. Dry in the finish. Weak one.

tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2015
12/VI/15 - 33cl bottle from Beer Mania (Brussels) @ home - BB: 13/XI/17 (2015-773)

Clear dark blond beer, big aery white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of banana, sweet, bit floral, soapy. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, lots of overripe banana, fruity, some citrus, yeast. Aftertaste: lots of the same overripe banana, yeast, bit of coriander, sweet finish. Meh.

Refsgaard (6) - - JUN 22, 2015 does not count
Lækker lys øl, hvor en bitter eftersmag trænger igennem. Minder meget om en pilsner, hvilket den forholdsvise lave, i belgiske standarder, alkoholprocent også viser.

Fin (10727) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle at Bier Mania, Ixelles, Brussels, Saturday 21st March 2015 I have the bitter version and Loz the sweeter standard blonde I guess, not a clue why they aren’t split. I am rating mine, hazy (clumsy pour) Nicely bitter reminds me a little of De Ranke XXX, maybe not quite as bitter but not far off. Lingering bitterness, dry finish. Soft carbonation, lemony in mouth. Good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

gizmo_ber (190) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2014
A great blend of spice and malt that goes down easy. The brewers did a great job of putting together a solid beer.
