Sask89 (529) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon and light citrus hops. Taste is mildly sweet with basically no bitterness, quite balanced. Light body, smooth on the palate, and soft carbonation. Overall, I quite enjoyed this beer.

Cimbasso (1006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Sampled from a bottle from Utobeer. Stoneware-style bottle with a crown cap. Pours a hazy golden colour with sediment and a foaming white head. Lots of sweetness in the taste but offset by a well-balanced bitterness. Notes of orange, peach and yeasty flavours. Also candy and spices. Good bitter finish. A good Belgian Ale but a little too much sugary flavour for me.

Chutné pivo, které je velmi podobné deliriu tremens. Tóny třtiny, či banánů spojené s dobrou říznou chutí a krémovou pěnou.

Clear golden color with frothy off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt and sugar with light yeast esters. Taste is boozy, sugary, yeasty with some earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium to light body, medium carbonation, dry, but quite boozy and difficult to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Dark golden, looks like honey. Thick head. Aroma yeasty, spicy with some citrus and peach. Taste nicely balanced with yeast, some sweetness and bitterness at the end. It drogs out quickly, though.
