zimbo (807) - SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Deep golden orange haze with glossy off white (very light mustardy?) head. Perfect amount of carb.Rich, snappy full thickish bready marmalade bitter goodness. Quite a feat to keep all this stuffing balanced. LOVE IT.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2013
[750ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Pours a reasonably cloudy orange-amber. Sweet, syrupy aroma, with some papaya-like tropical notes. Big barley wine flavour – lots of sweet, sticky sugars and tacky fruit, but leads to a deceptively dry finish. Good stuff [21062013]

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2013
500ml bottle provided by Stefan for our Straight outta Blenheim+ session. Unclear, amber-gold body. Tiny bubbly white head. Fragile lacing. Malt-fruity nose, including sweet orange and apricot. Taste of grapefruit, pumpkin, and apricot added by caramel snapshots. Semi-dry, fruit hoppy ending with a nice bitterness to it. Full bodied. Enjoying stuff (Tromsø 30.07.2013)

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from Erzbierschof, batch 117, bb 2/2014
Cloudy amber color, medium sized creamy head. The aroma is earthy, some manure, mildly pungent, light cream. Good mouthfeel, round and smooth; toffee flavor, quite sweet, with some crystal malt; strong character of oranges, some cedar, tangerine, very light frankincense; strong bitterness, a bit earthy and dirty. Maybe not as fresh as it should be.
