kraddel (7306) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber. Small white head. Smell is weak, bit grainy. Taste is rather bitter, some maltyness as well. Very common. OK mouthfeel, high but doable carbo. Pretty boring, but nothing bad.

erickok (5762) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2016
Golden bodied, very light for an amber, bubbly head. Sweet malts, light caramel, apple juice, grapes. Soft bitterness, very foamy mouthfeel, but soft carbonation. Enjoyable medium sweetness with just enough balancing. Bit simple perhaps, but nice for the style. Only thing is the fruity fermentation, which feels a bit underdeveloped. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

Belle robe blonde, aux reflets ambrs. Nez lgant sur des notes citronnes, de la pche, de la mangue. Bouche lattaque frache, finement acidule, un beau fruit, de lquilibre et une finale trs raffrachissante. Une belle de soif, bien quilibre.

ForlornHope (477) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a large, rocky head which fades. Aroma of grain and lemon. Slightly sweet to start with a gentle bitterness to follow. More grain with a slightly caramel edge, but also fruity and slightly sharp. Tart, peppery finish and quite lively on the tongue. Complex and enjoyable.

dnicolaescu (2399) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 8, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy amber, big creamy ivory head. Aroma has a nice white loaf crust note and some sweet-and-tart fruity fragrance. The taste has a bit of sweetness, but is mostly dry thanks to the spicy alcohol (that might be too strong at times). A good one, even if too hot.

Taste is odd but somewhat enjoyable caramel plastic, oily toffee, other plastic grains, faint herbal, cheap candy, faint oily Turkish delight, caramel, butterscotch, oily, some butter in a fiting way, Interesting, not bad, heavy on the oily, candy oily sweet with butterscotch & toffee. Interesting. Grains are buried in the toffee & oily Turkish delight but still noticeable. Kind of digging it.

GoufCustom (1877) - HONG KONG - AUG 23, 2015

330ml bottle bought at BeYummis kiosk during "Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest 2015" in Central.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden amber honey colour with a crust of yeast sediments; One and a three-quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with barely notable small carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet Amber malt, with mashed banana, light vanilla, plums, dark fruits, caramel, alcohol, strong sugar, phenolic, strong Bel yeast, cloves, spices, thin lemon and faint grass.

Taste: Medium sweet full malt, with metallic, strong tartness, light red fruits, caramel, wood, sugar, strong yeast, phenolics, light lemon, moderate to strong bitter hops and light grass.

Body: Full body. Thick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full maltyness in a rich and smooth body. Very creamy despite strong wheaty tartness. Light caramel gives way to some light red fruits and strong sweetness, which seems to mix well will moderate lemony hops. Spelts presence is just wood only and not coarseness like in the Bio Blond. Pretty satisfying!

Hoppiness: Spices, thin lemon and thin grass in nose, and stronger of the three in taste; Bitterness is moderately strong for a lasting, mid-astringent spicy sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Creamy, malty and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: Compared to the Bio Blond I had earlier, this one is stronger in ingredients, but much easier to the tongue. Good aroma of typical Belgian dark ale notwithstanding, it is rich, creamy, very tart, and without that edgy spelt coarseness, plus the hoppiness is well-tuned. Way better than Bio Blond, a bit simple but definitely enjoyable. Nice one!
