"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...

Drank at its source, BeerMania. Surprisingly bananaish, wheat-beer-like. Yet very pleasant.

The official Odense sunny Thursday evening in June monster tasting event. Gusher. Cloudy amber with a small white head. Fruity aroma dominated by green apple, along with a bit of spice. Sweet fruity and spicy flavour with a bit of biscuit, a yeasty touch and notable alcohol.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2012
This Belgian blond has a lively sweet aroma and a clear light brown color. The head is fast disapearing but lively. The flavor is gripping on the tongue with a nice sweet texture and smooth palate. All around a great blond!

33 cl bottle @ Brussels.
Rated on 20100720.
Pours golden color with large foamy head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, mild alcohol, caramel and toffee notes. Flavor of fruits, malts, toffee and spices.

Swaroga (2221) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 9, 2012
33cl bottle. Hazy darker orange with a fairly big head. Nose : hay and caramel malts. Quite fruity with ester aromas of cherry, banana. Citrus zest aromas of orange. Spicy mustard and clove mostly. Sip : low to medium density and a bit mouthful feeling. After de-carbonation it holds still strong bubbles. It has a sweet and strong cereal and spicy start. The taste develops a sour transition into a very delicate bitter hops. Tasty beer. A good brew. Extra points for the brewer that has a great open minded personality ans always ready to share some interesting conversation about the greatest subject of all : the beer !

jaghana (6073) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle 33cl from altonbrownd thanks. A clear golden beer with huge head. Nose is sweet like and on agrumes. Aroma is malty, very hopy with agrumes notes, peppery, bitter, near to a Duvel hops bouquet. Finish is a bit astringent, malty and with good bitterness, a classic Belgian ale.

laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2011
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Brussels. Rated on 14.4.2009
Aroma is typical to belgian: malty and sweetish with some spices and fruits. Flavour has malty yeast and hints of citrus and spices.

This was sold for me when I asked for Tripel Karmeliet. A bit tripel-like but totally not really the same stuff. I wonder if the shopkeeper wanted to sell his own stuff. Not bad though.
