Grumbo (2103) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2016
On tap at a restaurant in Genoa. Pours red/brown with a small off white head. Aroma is spiced, malt, and caramel. Medium sweetness, somewhat tart bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture. Heavy going really and seems to punch above its abv - would perhaps work better on a park bench than with good Italian food...

Hamirubi (577) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
50cl can (6 II 2016). Perfect amber brew, one for the road. Pretty shabby, with a brownish look and easy spotted yeast nose. The flavours are medium sweet and bitter, with thin texture of modest carbonation and likewise body. There are keen notes of iron and fruits - an odd combo for sure. Although the alcohol volume is quite high (8.4% ABV), the mouthfeel is full of malts and water! A pitty. The taste still is long lasting and fine enough.

erickok (5695) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2016
Im not going to say this is a great beer, but put a craft name on it and say how you recreated a classic euro style and scores would have been different... Having said that, its too filtered for its own good. The red copper looks are okay, but the taste is flat and alcohol is way too prominent. On the other hand, it has a certain herbal tea appeal that I did oddly appealing. And it drinks surprisingly well. As said, not a good beer, but easy to bash just for its alcoholic heritage. (33cl bottle from Comptoir Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean)

Boxereddy (479) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2015
Dieprood bier met een grote lichtbruine schuimkraag. De geur is zeer zoet met noten van alcohol, bessen en citrus. De smaak is zoet met sterke accenten van alcohol en hints van metalen. Zoet mondgevoel maar wel een droge afdronk.

Beerkenstock (106) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2015
Drink cold (8C) Eye: pours an reddish-brown color with a medium and quickly dissipating white head and high carbonation. Nose: not much other than hops Mouth: sparkly, grapes, prune tart and red berries. Palate: red berries again, black currant even and hops. Overall: very fruity and refreshing beer. You wont feel the high percentage of alcohol.
