Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is banana, tropical fruit, spice, malt, pear, eh. Appearance is dirty copper, off beige head, pretty hazy. Taste is unpleasant. Banana, so much malt, bitter, some tropical fruit, harsh, metallic. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, metallic and fruity aftertaste. Overall, yikes. Unpleasant. Damn book.

330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for this damn book again. The pour is a dirty copper color, lightly translucent with a thinner cap of off white head that falls to a bubbly collar. The aroma is pretty bitter. There is a strong banana and a light clove thats detectable up front, but its not got a lot going on. There is a light hop bitterness thats present, but overall this one is pretty disappointing from the get go. The flavor is awful. The banana is huge. There is a strong clove and spiciness that is unwelcome. The malt really dominates the back end. Its a combination of really sweet and unnecessarily spiced. The banana is terrible. The mouth feel is a bit light, but decently carbonated and leads right into a sweet metallic malt aftertaste. This is garbage.

Icedwarf (1392) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, bitter hoppig en ietwat bitter, licht zoet, brood en grasachtige tonen overheersen.

Bottle at home. Pours golden with a large white head. Sweet aroma of malts, yeast, spices, coriander. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet, light bitter, sweet malts, yeast, coriander, dry finish, light resiny bitter aftertaste. Not really my kind of beer.

Kolor bursztynowy, przymglony. Piana bia?a drobno i ?rednio p?cherzykowa, do?? wysoka o ?redniej trwa?o?ci. Aromat: bardzo s?aby, ma?o wyra?ny, troch? nut chmielowych, troch? kwiatowych i miodowych. Smak: jest bardzo podobnie, ca?o?? ma?o wyra?na, brakuje jakiego? konkretnego akcentu. Goryczka bardzo wyra?na, chmielowa, sucha, trawiasta. Jest do?? d?uga ale nie przeszkadza i nie "?ci?ga". Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

R4N5H (935) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
33cl bottle at Delirium Cafe, Amsterdam on 14-May-2016. Hazy golden amber colour with a medium sized fluffy off-white head. Floral aroma with hops, sweet malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of wholemeal bread, caramel and fruit. Lightly hopped with a slightly bitter finish. A pretty nice ale - closer to a tripel in character and taste.

jamestulloch (3698) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle from Jumbo. Clear golden body with yeast flecks floating beneath a thin white head. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of almonds, herbs and flower stems. Flavour of steel, bitter salt, grass and dried apricot with a sharp, slightly unpleasant finish. Thin to medium body with a slick, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry and sharp. Not great.

I_LUV_BEER (222) - - APR 29, 2016
Served in a tulip from a bottle. pours hazy golden colour with nit much of a head. Aroma is somewhat floral, with clear malts, bread and yeast present. Taste is bready with caramel and pear notes, unfortunately the alcoholic feel is very noticeable. Nicely carbonated but a bit too much on a prickly side, with a pleasant slight bitter aftertaste. Nice enough.

arkanu (52) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 29, 2016
Hazy, somewhat on the yellowish side of amber, with a consistent head that will not go away easily. Overall, its a very robust, full bodied beer, with a strong alcoholic feel along with yeast and flowery hops. Taste is yeasty, with hints of lime peels, spices and apricots. Not too bitter, but with a nice aftertaste thats somewhat sweet, yet still bitter enough. Worth a try!
