simontomlinson (335) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Off white fluffy head soon left a cover on a lightly effervescent copper coloured body. Fruity malt aroma with hints of butterscotch. Medium body, smooth on the palate & sticky on the back. Sweet sickly tastes of caramel, over ripe fruits. No Belgian yeast & not clean enough.

[email protected] Hobbit Tasting. Hazy golden colour with a mediumsized white head, which lasts for quite a while. Aroma is sweet malts, fruits, some tropical fruit juice, mild spices as well as some toffee. Flavour is tropical fruits, some caramel and mild bready notes as well as some herbal and spicy notes. Also a mild sweet sting of alcohol to it.

Strong "german" malt backbone, rich interplay from grainy to light caramel/candy, no belgian yeast character, alcohol well incorporated

3.3
Idiosynkrasie (7432) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 1, 2016
650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey, pale golden colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, fruity, slightly bready malty aroma, notes of apricot, mirabelle, hints of cheesecake. Taste is sweet fruity, slightly tacky, notes of apricot, bitter hoppy overtones - too weak to present a real counterweight to the sweetness -, biscuity, caramel malty basis, cautious hints of peppery yeasty spiciness in the finish; soft palate, viscid texture. Rather monotonous, too sweet; or at least too sweet for the lack of complement.

dnicolaescu (2533) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 100ml sample. Dried sweet-and sour fruit, light sweetness and a touch of alcohol. Ok.

3.8
jamaty (2118) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Bonito aspecto dorado y compacto. Clara. Muy escasa espuma, cuesta sacarla, mejor cuando se calienta un poco. Buen aroma, de uva y pan. Junto con el alcohol recuerda a moscatel. Maginifico cuerpo y textura, muy cremosa. Sabor intenso y final seco propio del estilo. Intensidad de aromas con recuerdos florales, pero sobre todo predominio de la uva. Punto especiado y de amargor. Definitivamente entra en el estilo, aun hecha en USA, pero con una aportacin original. Una cerveza para disfrutar en tragos cortos.

3.4
