Dark Golden pour with bright white 1 finger head. Highly carbonated and clear. Strong yeast nose with citrus and grassy hop notes.Good balance of semisweet malts, grassy hops tapers off relatively dry. Bitter finish with a hint of alcohol.

Taste is slightly sweet floral, sap, weeds, hay, grass, minerals, flowers, yeast, alcohol, wet grain, fruit stones, "knekk", medicine, old leafs. Medium bitterness, slightly watery and harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough, kind of old I guess.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2017
Shared bottle. Pours a golden body with a white top. Aroma of caramel, raisins and lots of malts. Might have been on the shelf for a bit too long, it is a bit oxidised. Taste is fairly sweet with malts, caramel, toffee and hints of dried fruits. Still ok.

Christos (5791) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2017
(High Water Rio d’Oro) Bottle 650ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 8.5% Deep copper orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a good sized and thick white head on top. Aroma of malts, sugars, stone fruits, old wood. Taste is sweet, light oxidation present, stone fruits, sugars, a bit of marmalade, alcohol. Medium body. Good, probably I’ll have a headache tomorrow, it just has that profile.

simontomlinson (374) - 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.

tmzl (318) - SLOVENIA - FEB 9, 2017
Strong "german" malt backbone, rich interplay from grainy to light caramel/candy, no belgian yeast character, alcohol well incorporated

3.6
Torrefacto (1675) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2016
Ámbar turbio y espuma marfil. Aromas de mermelada de fruta amarilla, anís, especias ligero alcohol. Cuerpo denso y sedoso, con sabor dulce de fruta amarilla y anís con final seco.

3.3
Idiosynkrasie (7535) - 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.

@ Basunen 15-9-19: Tydlig doft av hö. Det samma i smaken tillsammans med en tydlig ton av karamell. Lite väl söt.

dnicolaescu (2569) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 100ml sample. Dried sweet-and sour fruit, light sweetness and a touch of alcohol. Ok.
