A very nice belgian strong ale with sparkling wine yeast. Fruity estery aroma. Medium soft body. Fruity estery character with sweet notes and a dry sweet end. Nice!

Bottle shared at my 30:th birthday tasting on May 5 (30 år av Surt). Courtesy of Larsniclas. Pours tiny hazy golden with a tiny white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace. Taste is sweet, tiny sour and oxidized with apples, toffee, lemon zest and hints of caramel and wood. Taste is sweet and tiny sour with caramel, apples, wood, hay, yeast, lemon juice and rotten pears. Mouthfeel is watery, tiny sticky sweet, tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with apples, lemon zest and hints of wheat crackers and lemon juice.

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 13, 2012
Intensiv dunkel hefiger Antrunk. Eine geringe Säuerlichkeit ist vorhanden und gefällt, wird im Verlauf aber muffig. Trocken bitter, Kräuternoten, nicht ganz harmonisch. Zum Ende wenig süß. Interessant – aber nicht ganz mein Fall. 12/9/9/9/11/9

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2011
[75cl bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Golden yellow beer, plenty of haze, decent white head. Sweet, grassy, acetic aroma. Plenty of wheat. Sharp, some sour, lactic on the taste. More sharp than sour overall however. Lemon and Lime [19082011]

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. A blonde ale with a lacy white head. Musty aroma with wheat, caramel and candy sugar. Flavour is quite musty and tart with fresh lemon, lemon sherbert, wheat and barley. Foamy mouth-feel with a nice dry finish. Not bad, thanks Craig : )

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2011
Im Geruch säuerlich-weißweinartig mit lieblichen Tönen. Moderat säuerlicher Antrunk. Mittelteil hefig mit holzigen Noten, weinartig und verhalten bitter. Bitter-säuerlich und weinhefig ablaufend. Ziemlich streng auftretendes Bier, trotzdem recht gut.Test vom 14.12.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Nickls (2607) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle. Very frothy white head; darker hazy marigold color. Lightly funky and sweet in the aroma. Floral flavors and a bit sweet and sticky. Wild nature doesn’t really come through in the taste, but some residual peach and pear sweetness in the finish. Some spice and citrus as well. Not bad, but would have been nicer to get the sour in the flavor.

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2010
750ml bottle bought at Enoteca Bonatti, Firenze last July- bottled November 2008. Gusher. The beer that made it to the glass poured fully hazed; orange-gold with a fine, subsiding white head. Beckoning aroma packed with Belgian-hinting goodies; honeycomb, wine gums, lean piney hop dappled with lime and cream. Slick and slippery, alcohol obscenely well concealed; gentle resiny pine, lemon barley and tinned peach over a lightly toasted, honeyed cereal base. Hints of grassiness and apple turnover. Fine and mellow, if a trifle limp considering the ABV, champagne yeast and incendiary carbonation on prising the cap. Picks up some gluey special strength lager notes as it warms- disappointing, considering it remains about the most expensive beer I’ve ever purchased. Still, a pleasantly honeyed, discreetly fruity, Belgian-accented drop all the same.

Christian (13814) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Cloudy orange with a small white head. Herbal and fruity yeast aroma. Sweet, complex flavour of fruit and spices, with a yeasty note.
