yngwie (16768) - Kristiansand, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle, at Risras. It pours a clear, dark amber body under a dense, finger-thick, beige head. The aroma has toffee, prunes and some dark sugar, pleasant but a bit boring. Its soft on the palate, semi dry and full-bodied, with flavors of toffee, figs and prunes dominating the flavour. Some bitterness that lasts for a good time. Dried fruits too in the finish. A quite pleasant one, but theres nothing extraordinary going on. 121111

fkoolen (1091) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Cloudy amber, firm beige creamy head. Interesting flavour where cherry, red berry fruity meet caramel, sweet malty, herbal and light lactic acidic tones. Quite boozy. OK balance. Good body, low carbonation, thick mouthfeel.

Beer5000 (6201) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a nice, dense white head. Quite mild in aroma, malt and fruit with a hint of cherry. Flavor is mild malty, some cherry, and hint of fruit in general, low bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste. Decent but a bit without any clear direction, not really a fruit beer but difficult to recognize it as anything else either.

TorbenJensen (1479) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2015
Slightly atypical Belgian strong ale, which is not as sweet as expected for Belgian beer. Foam is medium and the flavor is caramel malt. The taste is dominated by caramel, but a little peach / mango can also be sensed in the taste. The sweetness is retained and it is more radical hoppy than usual for Belgian beers. May be served for white meats or poultry.

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
(Bottle, Delirium Caf, Brussels, 25 Oct 2014) Copper colour with dense, off-white head. Fruity, slightly sourish nose with red berries, caramel, dark fruit and a slight Rodenbach touch. Fruity, slightly tart taste with notes of caramel, red berries, dried apricots and a bitter-sweet finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty beer with a slightly sourish touch. Quite nice.

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Gentle but fairly rich sweet fruit nose, some oxidation, and light caramel. Honey brown color, thin head, no lace at all. Sweet fruit, berries, mid palate goes harsh (perhaps even phenolic), fruit reappears, and then it all drops off. Medium body. Okay.

corkyrory66 (1734) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Bire ambre de 8 % abv (et non 8,5 comme indiqu sur le site). Couleur ambre moyen roux abricot. Superbe. Clart nette. Bulles fines en colonnes partout. Superbe. Mousse beige trs clair qui forme un nappage trs crmeux, velout. Beau. Armes de brett, lambic, cerise, pointe de whisky de Campbeltown, girofle, sureau, chne cir, ponge humide (on fera avec ). 1re bouche soyeuse lentre plutt sur le malt cara, mais vite suivi par une amertume limite acide, un peu sur la Rodenbach. Arrire-bouche trs brett et guignolet. 2me la texture trs agrable, vers le velout. Equilibre plus important malt/ houblon mais avec une touche lambic, qui vient de faon un peu dconcertante. 3me lquilibre malt/houblon avec un houblon amer perant type IPA. Arrire-bouche frache, avec des fruits rouges et de la pastque. La longueur amne du bois de ft et plus de prsence, mais on est un peu tard pour se fixer dans cette danse alambique... La levure est douce, simple mais belle. Lalcool est correct, mais il ne sait qui sadresser dans ce breuvage. La finale laisse un peu perplexe sur ce que le brasseur a voulu, bien que des nuances intressantes apparaissent encore. CONCLUSION: une bire qui a des atouts certains, mais qui part un peu nimporte o. On navigue entre le lambic, la rodenbach, et une ipa, sans trop savoir sur quel pied danser. Bizarre vous avez dit bizarre?
