Hazelnootkleurig bier, nauwelijks blijvende schuimkraag. Sterk aroma van appelstroop. Smaak zoet/zuur.

gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy, orange brown color. Small beige head. Soft fruity malt nose. Dryish, yeasty malt flavor has a vinous character. Complex and flavorful.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Positively surprised by this one, which has the lowest abv of all Kapittel beers, but clearly not the least remarkable taste. Good mix of hops and spices, quite easy to drink, perhaps not a beer I?d choose between many others but definitely one that I?d enjoy on any occasion. Nice. APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle from CAMRA 2017 NWAF. Caramel brown, clear. Not much visible carbonation. Smell is a bit adjuncty with fruit caramel notes. Hoppy taste with a bit of caramel undertones. Nice carbonation in the clean finish. Verdict: a hard rate... although I enjoy it the beer had a cheap macro taste. Mixed feelings but overall it was drinkable.

Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, banana and malt. Flavour of malt, brown sugar and dark, dried fruit / raisins. Sour-sweet and slightly bitter finish.

Zarrach76 (259) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2016
Très belle robe ambrée/rubis sombre, légèrement trouble avec une belle mousse fine beige. Nez pétillant, sur les agrumes, la levure, assez minéral, qui développe un côté métallique qui disparait très rapidement après oxygénation. Derrière, on sent les malts, le pain chaud, et même des saveurs de soupe aux légumes (carotte, pomme-de-terre, poireau...) ! Spécial, mais pas inintéressant. Carbonatation faible, texture légèrement huileuse, alcool léger, sécheresse franche pendant quelques secondes et amertume sur le final. Le goût est légèrement savonneux, il y a un petit quelque chose de désagréable, voir chimique. Je dois avouer que j’ai beaucoup de mal à identifier les arômes et que je ne suis pas convaincu par cette bière un peu flotteuse. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Color marrón oscuro con reflejos rojizos, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Restos de fermentación en la botella. Aroma a levadura y frutal, típico de doble pero no muy prominente. El sabor, como ha dicho Rhombic, es primero frutal pero luego muta a una malta tostada y algo de caramelo. Hay también alguna fruta por ahí perdida que me recuerda a las Rochefort. En algún trago me ha quedado un regusto metálico del que no estoy muy seguro y que bien puede ser cosa mía. Rica pero sin pasarnos.

33 cl. bottle @ Rick. Light brown with a beige head. Malty caramel aroma with some yeast. Taste is caramelsweet. Body is quite thin. Not bad at alle but too thin and bland to be really enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Botella 33 cl del c. Inglés tomada en Oviedo junio 2008. (r428). Fcpref 04..2009. Sabores maltosos algo tostados y dulces. Cuerpo ligero a medio de 6 vol. Normal.

Rhombic (130) - SPAIN - JUL 10, 2016
[Oops, got two mixed up for the previous rating] Pours brown with tan head. Peach, grape, underlying hops and malt in aroma. Starts fruity and crisp, but evolves towards a toasted malt, caramel and wood in the finish. Medium body, maybe a tad milder. Oily, nice complex finish, long and interesting.

martin00sr (4008) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2016
Clear dark amber, creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma, light notes of fruit. Caramely flavour, malty and somewhat fruity. Nutty, dry and bitter finish. Boring.
