Lore (2614) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 25, 2017
opalescent golden colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of floral honey, peach, orange zest, maybe some earthy-cellary notes, too; taste of honey, candy sugar, overripe peach, some biscuit and spicy notes; surprisingly good, especially taking into account that I bought it around 3 month ago for half price in a webshop - so it is now probably over its ideal age

0,33l bottle at home bought recently from Etre Gourmet. BB 01/2012. amber hazy color, small white head. smells nutty, honey, parfumy, peach, spices, lots of marzipan, bitter almonds. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes nutty, oxidation, some weird fruit notes, marzipan, dark breadish, peppery, spices. finishes lightly dry with notes of dark bread, spices and some marzipan. still rather drinkable but has cardboardish / weird fruity notes. overall decent.

Pours unclear blonde, good white head. Smell is madeira ( because of the age ) . Very intense but nothing else than that. Taste is rather bitter- still - on top of the madeira sweetness. The taste itself is very common, one in a dozen aged blonde beers will taste like this, but it has got the bitterness on top of it to set it appart, still. Quite fun to still get to try this, and the bitterness is an unnexpected treat.

Alengrin (5156) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Lupilines second, launched in 2008 but discontinued when this nice little beer company ceased its activities. Thick, creamy, off-white head, orange peach blonde colour, cloudy. Aroma of apricot, peppery hops, orange peel, vanilla, tonic water. Fruity and citrussy, fresh onset, rounded, malty, dryish, strongly hop bitter finish, long. A lot more assertive than the friendly image would suggest.

Een bier met weinig smaak aan. Ik vond het echt een serieuze teleurstelling

mjik83 (1460) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
33cl flesje via Être Gourmet webshop. Alcoholpercentage van 7% Houdbaarheidsdatum is verlopen. Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas. Uiterlijk: Troebel goudoranje kleur met goede schuimlaag. Aroma en smaak: fruitig, abrikoos, zoet, brood Conclusie: drink niet makkelijk weg, geen verkeerde smaak, klein zuurtje door houdbaarheidsdatum denkelijk. Komt in de buurt van mijn smaak, hou van fruitig bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (5291) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear hoppy aroma with fruity and corianderlike notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with distinct touches of coriander and flowers. Dry finish. Not bad as such, but quite demanding.

Hazy amber beer with a big bubbly white head. Light dry palate. Watery pale malt, insipid spice. Tiny bit of citrus. Dry finish. Dull, dull, dull! And too dry. Nice label though!
