Rune (12264) - Troms, - DEC 31, 2012
The 330ml 2011 vintage bottle with lotto 214-11 was bought in late March 2012 at Johnnys Off License (Via Veio) in Roma. Cloudy amber coloured body, slightly off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced fruity aroma, hints of apricot and herbal hops. Subdued vapour of alcohol. The taste character has got a bittersweet citrus peak with candy sweetness and yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lingering bittersweet ending with noticeable alcohol. Soft in the mouth. Full bodied. Enjoyed for about an hour at home in Troms, 30.12.2012.

Vinx (132) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2017
Reserva 2012. Aroma of yellow fruit, red fruit, wood, citrus, lactic, caramel in the background and further something nutty. As the beer gets warmer some spicy aromas come out: cumin, pepper, cloves. Ruby red color, very little foam. Its sweetness is properly balanced by a medium body and by the citric and lactic freshness from the maturation in wine barrel (i dont know which wine) that somehow gives balsamic notes. Velvety, soft carbonation, a little astringent finish. The Reserva 2012 is one of the best italian beers Ive ever tasted, its a masterpiece of balance between the malt mildness and its slightly sour character. Chapeau!

L_Lovecraft (563) - - DEC 10, 2016
Red fruits, sherry, hints of caramel, acetic notes, cloudy amber/reddish with a thin head, medium/full body, law carbonation, taste similar to the aroma with a pleasant sour final...intense sweet but for christmas is a good adjective.

Silvan7 (1236) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 5, 2016
"Reserva 2016" On tap @ Extraomnes bier e cibo. Giallo ambrato carico velato, schiuma bianco lattiginoso, fine persistente. Aroma intenso fine e complesso. Subito si avvertono note fruttate riconducibili al vino, uva appassita, legno ,quasi liquoroso. esteri del lievito belga, fruttati, pesca sciroppata, zucchero candito, leggerissima luppolatura. Dolce amabile, acidula, solo nel finale qualche sentore amaro, ma il calore alcolico lo "lava" immediatamente, speziata, Calda, poco carbonata, corpo medio, rotonda, "piena". Equilibrata ed armonica.

laiti (8308) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
33 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ home. Batch #214 11, BBE 08/2016
Aroma has ripe fruits, apricot and alcohol. Foamy palate. Flavour has burning & warming alcohol, ripe fruits, apricot and some yeasty tones. Finishes with some spicy tones and more alcohol. Very Belgian, reminds me of some Bush beers. Alcohol clearly pushes through here but luckily most of it is of warming type.
