rumore (431) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 15, 2017
From 33cl bottle. Pours golden, partly hazy worth very abundant white foam, fairly irregular. Aroma is dominated by yeast esters, body is medium, rather liquor-like, very carbonated. Taste starts with some sweetness, but after that all you feel is alcohol. Finish is medium, with a mix of sweet and bitter.

Flanfl (799) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 Clear deep golden color, huge white. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, malt, light orange peel notes. Flavours of malt, belgian yeast, orange peel and alcohol. Medium sweet bitter dry finish. I think the alcohol is a tad too present. The beer needs a bit more Balance. Medium body, medium-high carbo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
