Nice fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet floral, sap, wet grain, hay, minerals, alcohol, grass, weeds, flowers, caramel. 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.
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.

Good, probably I’ll have a headache tomorrow, it just has that profile. simontomlinson (675) - 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. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2017
