Swaroga (2176) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 22, 2016
33cl bottle. The beer is clear with big head. Aroma is not much intensive with some cardboard oxidation. Clove, white grapes, pear and typical banana/apricot. Medium strong carbonation, creamy mouth feel. The beer is a bit oxidated and has a medium short finish that is dry and clovy. Lacks a lot of character. But hey, its been longtime I havent drink some Belgian esters.

Bottle from Waitrose, Hexham, Northumberland. Hazy straw coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet, spicy lemon flavour with floral notes and a spiced fruity finish. Pretty good.

ThirstyBird (2842) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
33cl bottle, pours a clear deep yellow with a very large head. The smell is spice, toasted malt, yeast. The taste is very spicy, some yeast, fairly sweet light malt ending spicy and a bit dry. Light on body with active carbonation. This one is a bit sweet and not particularily to my liking.

Initial aroma was slightly woody with a banana and clove follow through. Colour is light golden with a good and lasting creamy head. Sweat and sharp on the palette with a strong phenolic presence. There is a slight medicinal finish to the bittering which I did not like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Waitrose at Gloucster Road. Pours light, bright gold with a foamy/fizzy white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, herb. Med + body - likely due to the impressive carbonation. Flavor is bubble gum, anise, yeast/spice, but no identifiable fruit ester. Maybe the flavors arent particularly strong, but they are hard to ignore. Think theres a phenolic aspect towards the finish. Nothing wrong here, its just that the flavor is a bit off the Belgian median. Works.

dj (583) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle, 330ml. A golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, clove and a little citrus. Flavour is sweet, over carbonated, a little sour, some spicy hop notes. Disappointing.
