BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Bottle sampled @ RBSG 05’ (Montréal) Grand Tasting
Particulate yeast suspended amber. Nose of alcohol, mild caramel and ripe grapes. Not very complex, just bloody strong. Finishes smooth but strong, almost like a shot. I’m not one to shy away from strong beers but this seems a bit too unbalanced to me to hold up the flavors.

adster (713) - HUNGARY - OCT 30, 2016
13%-os belgian strong ale tölgyfa hordóban érlelve, helyezhetjük képbe magunkat a főzet mibenlétét illetően, ilyen előjelek mentén nyilvánvalóan csak a legjobbra számít az ember. Ha a küllemén múlna, aggodalomra sem lenne semmi okunk a továbbiakban sem, borostyán színe és hófehér ködhabja festői vonalakat rajzolnak. Illata a jól ismert sárga gyümölcsök üde bukéjának fuvallatával indít, enyhe fanyar szellő kíséretében, s egy tartalmas barackpálinkás, gyümölcsmagos hangulat is kiérződik az aromafellegből. Az már korántsem ennyire örömteli, hogy egy kilógó mellékzönge is rendre ott munkálkodik már ebben a fázisban is, egyfajta nyers, ipari, valamiféle kaucsukszármazékot idéző illatjegy, mely talán megmagyarázhatatlan módon csak arra az egyetlen palackra jellemző, amit a kezemben tartok, én sehogyan sem tudtam megbarátkozni vele. Az érlelés karakterisztikája természetesen tetten érhető az italban, a mazsolás, kandiscukros, desszertszerű elemek is éppúgy megjelennek, mint a kissé fanyar élesztős, fás jegyek, majd csípős és szigorú, mégis elegánsan jelen lévő alkoholos köntös, s a nem csak jelzés értékkel bíró aromás komló zárása. Idővel az élénksége is csitul kissé, így válik némileg barátibbá a számomra a szerkezet, s az a gumisba forduló mellékíz is visszavesz kissé a tolakodásból, átadva a helyét azoknak a komponenseknek, amelyeknek valóban a sörben a helyük, így alakítva ki a szimpatikus belga benyomásokat.

Karol (882) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 9, 2016
Bottled. Pours a hazy thick orange, red and copper color. Thick soapy head, vanishes quick. Nose piercing aroma of tons of fresh fruits, sourness, white wine, gerkins, sauerkraut, alcohol. Taste mirrors the aroma plus a fantastic dry hoppy sour finish. Surprisingly easy to drink though the present alcohol in the aftertaste.
