3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
ZBF Festival 2013 - Pale brown. The initial impact of this one is it’s thin body and lack of carbonation. The warming bourbon/alcohol is very prominent and also gives some vanilla sweetness to and increasingly dry finish.

Sampled from tap at Haandøl 2013. Clear nut golden body with an off-white film. Honey, rock sugar and bourbon notes with acetone disturbing some. Sweet flavor, especially honey, but also noticable alcohol. Full bodied, syrupy and alco warm. Pretty heavy stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small bottle thanks to GlennC! Wow, I can already tell I’m going to love this, these are my favorite types of beers. Pours a clear bright orange with a fine fizzy white bubbly froth. Aroma is fantastic! bright juicy orange tangerine, very bright, notes of vanilla with a great bourbon note, love it! Flavor is same but just a tad hot, juicy tangerine, very bourbon forward which is fine by my, has enough bright citrus to make it really nicely offset. Medium/light bodied with sharp carbonation a bit sugary. I really really really love this beer!
