Hamirubi (571) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2015
33cl bottle at the sports cafetaria in Waarschoot (29 VIII 2015). Just beautifully looking golden ale with lovely white foamy collar - long lasting too. Floral, herbs and of course malts aromas make this beers flavours. This looks quite promising. The body is a bit of a downer; This ale makes its power through a sharp bitter, appealing finish. The brew has features of citrus zeste, malts and some soury sweet fruits. It certainly is not very complex, but it can stand as the flagship of the Keizer Karel series.

janubio (756) - SPAIN - JUL 29, 2015
Clear golden colour, with a small head that holds and leaves some lace and a ring. Smell of cloves. And more cloves. And then some fruits, bananas, peaches, coriander. Medium carbonation, medium to full body, thick palate with noticeable alcohol, like rum or whiskey. Taste of spices, cloves, banana, fruits. Very good.

jamaty (1988) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Dorada limpia, de bonita espuma poco duradera. Aroma con base malteada y notas frutales. Bien de cuerpo y con gas presente. En boca sabor frutal y notas espaciadas. Alcohol presente, difcil ocultar 8 grados, pero no exagerado. Final seco. Buena sin estar entre las mejores del estilo.

Senka (1068) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2015
33cl BBE02/04/16 Gentle oak aroma. Malty and fruity. Strong banana aroma on opening. Pours gently hazy straw yellow with thick, beautifull snowwhite head. Head retention is beautiful. Aroma of cloves. Medium bitter. Some simple hope selection. Spicy and gently fruity. No alcohol in taste. Above average carbonation. Slightly below medium body. Slick a bit oily. Soapy finish with some dryness. Interesting BSA to sample, but I suggest to share the bottle.

Icedwarf (1343) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Helder levendig geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is fris zuur, licht hoppig bitter en enigszins zoet, honing, gras en citrus. Erg goed, echter ietwat waterig. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.
