DijkBier (323) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2017
Why not rate this wellknown one... Bottle pours clear ruby-brown with a smalll creme head. Aromai s quite light; roasted malts, spices, some plum. Taste is more convincing, but rather sweet; caramel, brown sugar, fruits, spices (clove). Its not a very special beer, but surely nice and well balanced.

The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is a reddish orange. It isnt really amber colored, its to red for that. The beer is crystal clear. I can look through it like its water. Not a single bubble can be seen in the beer. The beer pours a small layer of slightly tinted foam. The foam collapses quickly, to leave almost nothing. The smell of the beer is lovely. Its very fruity and has a good sweetness. I smell banana, raisins, almonds, some distinguished smokey touches, alcohol, all really nice rather warming aromas. The beer is perfect for the late fall and early winter. Its warming aromas, with some autumn touches to it, with the raisins, some spices I smell. Its lovely I think. The taste is also nice. It has all those things the smell has to, but its more blended together. In the smell al aromas are individually perceptible, but in the taste all flavor a come together in a homogeneous, warming rich and sweet taste with a nice bitter pinch. The finish starts with a little taste of metal. The finish is quite long and is filled with the raisins and almonds mostly. The palate of the beer is exceptionally good. The beer has a medium-strong body, with a fizzy carbonation. The texture is rather slick I think. A nice beer it is.

ALIBALI (1558) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2017 Fr ein Bier der Heineckengruppe mehr als solide. Mutet fasst ein bisschen quadrupelartig an. Allerdings hab ich dieses Bierchen zu etwas spteren Stunde vernascht, daher knnten die Sinne ein wenig betubt gewesen sein. Aus der Flasche im Paradiso, Amsterdam beim fulminaten CRB Konzert. Ca.4 Euronen...Neuer Anlauf...wieder etwas benebelt ;)...Klar, krftig malzlakritzverliebt, aber auch stumpf kratzig mit medium belastbaren Body. Fr HEINEKEN HARDLINER ;)... Alle Eckdaten gleich :)
