imdownthepub (15129) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottled 330ml from Booths Supermarket, Kendal, Cumbria. Amber with white head. There is a rich biscuit type note at the start of this, some crisp notes, some fruity alcohol hints. There is a subtleness to the beer despite the strength, hints of caramel. Pretty decent.

3.8
Idiosynkrasie (7834) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2015
330ml bottle. Cloudy, reddish amber colour with small, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Funky yeasty and fruity hoppy aroma, a bretty touch of bubblegum, notes of red currant, lingonberry, peach, herbal overtones on the crossroads of dill and sage. Taste is dry hoppy, minimally soapy and peppery, moderately sweet, juicy fruity basis, intertwixed notes of red berries and yellow stone fruit, a bretty bubblegum touch. OK. This one was originally entered as Imperial/Double IPA and has been corrected to Belgian Strong Ale. Since "Belgian Style" is in most cases synonymous to ’Belgian yeast fermented’ and Double IPA isn’t really an autochthonic Belgian style, you could likewise speak of Double IPA-Style Belgian (Strong) Ale; just as well you could substitute "style" with adequate linguistic forms of "interpretation" or "inspiration" and vary their reference to "Belgian" and "Double IPA". Whatsoever, underrated in my opinion, due to stereotyped style thinking.
