Cirrhosis' rating

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 23, 2012
First pour is crystal clear with sparkly bubbles floating to the top, a massive white pillowy cap floats on long lasting. Spicy wheat aroma, hints of banana.......CLOVE!!!!! Banana BOMB! Wow!! Big flavour, maybe a touch to much heat in the taste. So very tasty but maybe a touch unbalanced. Powdery with wheat, clove, other spices, touch of a perfume in the finish. Time for a second pour..........Beer got very cloudy complete with a giant nipple cap. Taste got sharper but some how more balanced at the same time. Do I detect a touch of lemon zest? YES, YES I DO. Ginger is really showing through now that the beer has warmed. I like this beer but its not completely wowing me.

15.02.2014, 0,75l bottle sampled @ RBNG14:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, citrus, yeast, peach, dried fruits, hay, dough. Taste is slightly fruity, light malts, yeast, citrus, spices, almonds, hay, coriander, cardboard. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

2015-01-10: Gul, disig med ett gigantiskt och hållbart skum som klänger fast på glaskanten. Läcker doft med örter och torkade frukter, typ aprikoser. Smaken är helt underbar, maltig, fruktig och med en skön örtighet, här finns lite citrus och lite honung och sötman balanseras av en superfin beska av grapekaraktär. Denna har lagrats i 2 1/2 år. Helt underbart fantastisk! Så smakrik och välbalanserad, måtte det bli något nytt Chimay-jubileum snarast!

Colore arancio, leggermente torbida, schiuma appena accennata ma compatta, la birra è ben oltre la data di scadenza. aroma fruttato. All’assaggio si sente un iniziale carattere vinoso dovuto alla stagionatura, poi però prende il sopravento il carattere originale della birra, crosta di pane, arancia, amaretto, mandorla, caramella, vaniglia. Una birra complessa e di ottima fattura, con il tempo incominciano ad apparire note alcoliche e marsalate che si amalgamo perfettamente con il carattere originale della birra.

Scandenza nel 2015. Ottima birra, complessa al naso e in bocca. Al naso fresca, un po' vinosa, speziato, ecc. in bocca vari sentori, tra i quali anche amaretto. Veramente, ma veramente valida. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Geproefd @ Cultuurcafe Berlare. Thanks Kevin. Fles 3 jaar over de datum. Mooi helder goudblond bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van perzik, abrikoos, beetje meloen, licht vineus, beetje houterig. Mooi vol en likeurachtig in de mond. Mooie balans. Top genietersbier !!

Foffern (1948) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at Hundholmen, Bodø. The colour is slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Fruity aroma of spices, Belgian yeast, peaches, hay, almonds, pale malt and some lemon and alcohol. Sweet flavor of grains, hay, dried fruit, spices and flowers. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A nice and complex ale, and must be excellent to food.
