BeerandBlues2 (12570) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle from the brewery. Pours clear tawny with a medium, frothy beige head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus and pine hops with biscuit and honey malt. Flavor is moderate citrus and pine hops and moderate bitterness with biscuit and honey malt, apple and pear esters with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

zenkis (812) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 8, 2016
bottle @Alus Celle, 8.5%
Aroma of sweet tropical fruits, some pine a bit. Balance towards malt, but with enough deep bitterness/hoppyness. Thou at the beginning it was so foamy that 330ml bottle was poured twice to settle it in the glass. This messed a bit drinkability, but as sipping brew turned out good. Juicy, thick malty hops liquid, light to min dry finish. Taste was fairly sweet. Low intensity in aroma.

Ulysse (469) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2016
Pours dark red with a slightly brown small top. Smells of fermented fruits. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Could almost make me think of a hoppy barley wine. Bitter but rather conservative for this style. Feels like a lot of alcohol for 8,5 ABV.

Vells (1690) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 29, 2016
Feels maybe not too interesting but fresh. Nice grapefruit character, light pine, bit herbal. Light sweetness, moderate bitterness. Quite standard, but decent
