I expected a better beer. It is very risky to make a Belgian-style beer with water avegades Catalan and can pass what happens in this beer, it is halfway. Or maybe it looked a beer without the strength of the Belgian market for Catalan. For that, halfway.

ALIBALI (2609) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2016
Geruch nach Fass & Rotfrüchten. Sehr wenig Kohlensäure, macht den ansonsten soliden mit einem malzig, süßen Charakter ausgestatteten Trunk, etwas gewöhnungbedürftig. Der Nachhall auch styletypisch solide, aber auch nicht mehr. 0,33l Flasche/2,90 Euro aus dem GROWLER in Barcelona.

0,33l bottle at home from my Secret Santa Lowenbrau, big thanks. BB 09/2017. dark brown color, small off-white head. smells belgian yeasty, bubbly, ripe fruits, some peach, light glueish, a bit acidic, light berry notes, OKish smell. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of belgian yeast, glueish again, spices, caramel, lightly acidic, bit citric, light notes of dark fruits, some sharp alcoholic notes. finishes with notes of sharp alcohol, dark fruits and and some spices. OKish, not a big fan, not too exciting and alcohol a bit too present for my liking.. Overall OK

Lowenbrau (4753) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 20, 2016
330ml botttle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 20-01-2016.

BBD: Sept 2017. Batch: 15-061.

In short: sweet strong ale.

Pours dark copper, little hazy, with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Caramel, licorice, molasses, ripe fruit and roasty nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is sweet, alcohol noticed, some viscous mouhfeel, little harshness due to high alcohols-fusels.

Small cream-coloured rim, fast gone over fully hazy redbrown beer. Woody nose, caramel, leafy, rainwater, cheese, woodstainer. Some hops, but mainly roasted & dark malts, with a jumble of meaty and other esters, chocolate. Caramel or even toffee in the finish, as well as a vanilla touch. Not very well-bodied, bit thinnish. Well, yeah... He wasn’t very Belgian, the defunct monk.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en el kraken 15..01..2016. (r10). lote 15..061 hasta sept 2016. Color ámbar miel muy oscuro con espuma beige. Sabores maltosos algo dulces a lo belga pero a fin de cuentas un poco toscos. Ligero amargo final. Cuerpo medio de 8 vol que no se notan mucho y con algo de gas, espumoso. Normal.

ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - OCT 29, 2015
33cl bottle. Slightly hazy brown colour with almost no head. Nuts, liquorice, dates, malts and alcohol in the aroma. Soft to average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet with some fruity notes. Quite dry finish and some bitterness and alcohol in the aftertaste. Overall, a good beer.

Erasmus_ro (3199) - Alabama, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle, BBE 12/16. Pours a reddish brown with a good, beige head. Aroma is pear, dark fruits, prune, dark breadiness. Taste is caramel, dark fruits, light pear. Fairly light. Pretty good.

Ungstrup (38592) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2014
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, over ripe fruits, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.
