3.88/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured out a dark brown color with reddish hues, a large frothy white head and a substantial amount of lacing. The nose gave me apples, bubblegum, a touch of coriander and passion fruit as well. There is a fusel alcohol as well. The taste was apples, a strong light malt flavor, alcohol, bubble gum a bit of mild caramel malt underneath, finishing lightly sweet with an apple flavor and a mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is foamy, with a long dry finish.

1 liter filptop poured into my Delirum snifter, Niuw Ligt is a clear, pale bronzed amber with a small but creamy off-white head that leaves pretty nice lace for a English style bareley wine, which this is. Fat chick in a tutu on the label, love it! After a liter of this, that's the kind of mistake you might find yourself trying to make...

Smell is nutty, a hint of cocoa, reminds me of J.W. Lees, but not so intense.

Taste is more mellow, a nice balance, some nutty malt, some herbal hoppiness, not too sweet. Clean, with a pretty nice balance, if not overly exciting.

Mouthfeel is on the creamy side for an English BW, not to heavy, the ABV is well hidden.

Drinkability is pretty high for the style as well, a sipper for sure, but it went down dangerously easily for such a large bottle of big beer, certainly better the English style BWs it reminded me of. Nothing mind blowing, but not bad. I dug the fat chick on the label, in a whimsical manner.

3.78/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A dark nutbrown beer with very little head.

Smell is very malty with strong sweet caramel notes. The malt dominates the smell of the beer, this really is a malt driven beer. A spicy and fruity yeast flavor that goes well with the hoppy smell.

Taste is sweet malty with caramel notes. Bitterness is quite high and balances the sweetness. A nice, grassy hoppiness finishes the taste.
Mouthfeel is thick and chewy and a little over the top. The yeast leaves a light fruitiness which appears to be 'English' or at least mineralic and fruity in an English way.

Sampled at Arendsnest in Amsterdam, Holland.

Dark Ruby.

Pleasantly aromatic with notes of pine, spruce, berries and fruit punch. Very lively and fragrant.

Extremely mellow, layered and soft. Slightly spicy with notes of cinnamon and pepper. Fruit notes throughout; especially cherries, orange and tangerine. Fantastic!
