larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2013
Small offwhite head. Hazy amber body with huge floaties and carbonation. Dried fruit vanilla aroma with bubble gum notes. Dry-sweet dried fruit and bubble gum vanilla taste with alcoholic notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry dried fruit and vanilla aftertaste with grassy bitter notes. Really interesting, but a bit strong and sharp. (0.5l bottle, shared by Ole_R.)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
Excellent clean gold with a good white head and lace. Aroma is amazing. Fruit a plenty, really good sugary notes and some excellent barrelly notes. The flavour is equally brilliant. Soft and sweet, beautiful apples and tropical fruit. Unusual juicy yet dry feel. Excellent barrelly character and gorrrrrrgeous booze in the very lengthy finish. Not my best rate but this is one of Davey and Glenn’s best.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light hazy golden orange wwith a small head. The nose is of apple cider, some sweet bourbon and a splash of wood barrel. Forest fruit sweetness. The taste is soft apricot, more berry, borbon and caramel. Vanilla flavors. Boozy but not oppressively so. A restrained barrel treatment. Pretty tasty stuff.

Bottle kindly shared by OleR. Malty sweet, very rich oaky character. Moe vanilla and wood than whiskey. A wood aging showcase.

Flaske 500ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Småhissig. Gylden. Uklar. Høyt tett skum som flater helt ut. Litt lacing. Lett søt alkoholisk aroma. Smaken er mandler. Blir svakt syrlig etter hvert.
