ClubGonzo (5663) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a clear light amber body with a small white head. Nose is tequila (!), caramel, banana, biscuits, mild raisins and hints of butterscotch, grains and red fruits. Taste is strange, sweet and reminiscent of a kind of candy known as "Smurfedrops" in Norway. Banana, white sugars, raisins and various dark, almost synthetic fruits. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Weird, but somehow enjoyable.

2009 bottle consumed in 2011. Light yellow orange pour with big white head. Aroma of Belgian banana wheat and slight hay. Taste was again a very mundane banana and herb thing which just didnt do it for me. Slight oxidation.

KyotoLefty (10079) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2012
2010 drink by. So I guess it is a 2007 bottle. Filthy deep gold, very cloudy, going to brown, with a low head. Big, malty nose, honey, biscuits, sweet orange and herbs. Luscious malt flavor, honey and citrus, bread and biscuits, apple, ripe pears, alcohol, spices. Much depth. Huge, full, silky palate but with just enough carbonation. Much fuller and complex flavor than any aged blonde I have had in years.

Style et rsum: Belgian strong ale brasse pour pques.
Comment: Bouteille de 750ml encore une fois merci Patrick.
Description: Cette bire tait malheureusement un peu trop vielle, elle commence se dgrader. La robe est jaune dore. Le nez est quelque peu oxyd, il y a une touche de miel. La bouche est de miel, sucre et bien sur oxyde. Du racio et des amandes grilles.
Note: 5/10

Une bouteille poussireuse qui mattendait dans le fin fond dune cave. Donc, une certaine apprhension. Un liquide qui dvoile une robe orange. Un col mousseux bien mince. Cest pardonnable. Un nez qui prsente certainement quelques rides. Des malts doux qui compriment les autres parfums. Du sucre belge, indniablement. Limpression dun produit qui a connu un levage oxydatif. Peut-tre des pices et des fruits dans le fond de mon verre. Des saveurs qui sont pourtant loin dtre dplaisantes. Des malts qui tiennent le fort. Des saveurs vineuses qui sont touches par les annes. Une bouche encore bien vivante. Une texture douce dans un corps qui nest pas trop mince. Une finale dans laquelle les vapeurs dalcool transportent des pointes pices. Tout compte fait, une bire capable de se dfendre devant les inepties de certains brasseurs.
