EchoShine (33) - Athens, - DEC 19, 2012
Popped off the cap and picked up some green grass notes that surprised me at first, but they quickly faded into some funk barnyard notes. Then I start looking up to the light .... seeing a thin cloud with in the body that feels thin on the palate because of some candy sweetness. Appearance is a bit mind boggling to the taste so extra points for that. Otherwise if filtered it may look and smell a bit like a wine cooler (ducks) Just a bit too candy sweet. thinnly sticky. dry finish. The unfiltered is nice and the funk makes up for any lameness. As it warms up to the ending nice little sips of complexity between malts and hops taking over the sweet.

Crudecrude (18) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber. Taste is fruity and clear with tones of honey. Body is full and malty. Aftertaste dry and hoppy. Leaves a nice feeling on the tip of tongue by its nice level of carbonation.

Silvan7 (1236) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle @ Donkey Brewing Santorini. Ramata, velata, schiuma bianco sporco, quasi beige, fine mediamente persistente. Aroma non troppo intenso ma fine. Caramello, fruttato di agrumi (scorza darancia), erbaceo da luppolo. Abboccata, molto per lo stile, caramellata, finale amaro ma senza eccessi, erbaceo, lungo e persistente. corposa, non molto calda, rotonda, piena, carbonatazione debole. Equilibrata.

Kauge (1900) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2016
33 cl bottle at Beer Time in Athens ( 7.50 - WTF is up with that insane price?!?). BB 14.09.2016. Pours all foam at first, creamy white. As it slowly recedes, a dark amber, hazy body appears. The aroma is jammy fruity. Kissell... or sweet strawberry marmalade. Something strange about it. Not sure if the Belgian yeast. Sweet jammy marmalade and caramel flavour. Medium body. Dryish palate. Seems alright... rather mediocre, if not sub-par, which furthermore makes the price look outrageous. But, eh, in warm weather its perfectly drinkable.

Color amber-hazy. Nice malty aromal. Kind of bitter-sweet, nice taste in general with a medium, easy going body . Very good beer in general!

Brew_Cat (134) - Athens, GREECE - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle at a craft beer testing session. pours hazy amber with off-white head. Notes of spices, clove, grapes, some smokiness detected. Carbonation is a bit too much for my taste. Roasty malts, herbal notes, maybe pine.

Brentv (669) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2015
From bottle. Pours hazy red with a small whitish head. Aroma and taste of a bit of caramel, fruits, a bit of cherry?, and a hint of funk - but just a hint. Taste has a slight sweetness, but a stronger hoppy bitterness without being bitter. Medium mouthfeel, definitely carbonated.

minutemat (5257) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
330ml bottle, thanks to Rouhlas, Pours murky brown with short-lived off-white head. Aroma is murky caramel and sweet malts. Taste is nutty, grainy, malty, some caramel and dried fruits. Not quite hip hoppy as the label says, but not unpleasant. Just a bit bland and lacking character.

GenkiGonzo (1091) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle brought back from Santorini. Hazy amber with little head. Aroma starts with sweet, yeasty fruit with some hops. Drinks like a malty Belgian ale. Not the style I expected, but nice.
