wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 17, 2011
{thoughts} Minus off-putting fusels a pleasant enough fusion of barley wine and Belgian strong ale, though without uniqueness.

{elements} Clear, copper hue; sparkling carbonation; tight, white cream. Aroma of caramel and raisins with herbal teases and a dose of oranges; harsher fusel alcohols appear with warmth. Heavy sweetness is tempered well by moderate acidity and bitterness; flavors of caramel, peaches and pineapples. Medium-full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. 100 cl bottle @ GP Tuulensuu.

Smaakt lekker, vol mondgevoel, maar niet zo uitgesproken als je verwacht bij een gerstewijn. Aardig

Svesse (8484) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2017
(Bottle, De Drie Dorstige Herten, Utrecht, 24 Feb 2017) Reddish amber colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel and treacle toffee. Malty, fruity taste with notes of apricots, red fruit, caramel and a slightly vinous, spicy finish with a light acidity. Full body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty and warming with some alcohol shining through. Nice one.

Bottle shared by Bjrn thanks. No head and much debris in the bottle. Old and matured malty aroma and taste. Mild bitterness and smooth caramell.

DijkBier (351) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2017
Clear ruby brown pour with tan head, that quickly diminishes. The aroma is dark malts, sweet, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar. The taste is also quite sweet, with the same elements (roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel), but also some plums and raisin. Its a nice beer, but I hoped for more richness regarding the sugary taste, and for more balance in the bitter; now its a little too sweet for my taste.

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołw, POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Draught at the brewpub. Sweet, full, sticky, boozy in an elegant way, full malty, with notes of rhubarb and red fruit cake. Warming finish. Very good.

SinH4 (4584) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Tap. Ruby color with eggshell head. Aroma is bubblegum, spicy, toffee. Taste is more toffee, a bit estery, slightly boozy in the back. Feels heavy, quite a head crusher. Nice enough.
