harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle at the Alvinne pre Zythos event 09. Hazy amber. A bit winey on aroma. It’s ok, bit winey, almost white wine grapey so I’m guessing it’s aged in Chardonnay barrels. Some vanilla. Pretty good. I have another bottle to try at home.

75cl bottle. Thanks Christian Scheffel. Pours cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Sweet malty and oaky nose. A bit of yeast. Overall sweet fruity and oaky flavor. Medium and smooth palate. Tasty but not overly complex as hoped for.

MiP (13799) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle at Alvinne pre-ZBF09. Cloudy grey amber colour. Almost no head. Good alcoholic flavour, lots of fruit and maltiness. Good peppery finish, slightly rough.

Travlr (13458) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle poured by Glenn at the brewery - thanks Glenn! Bright orange color with a slight rim of bubbles and moderate lacing. Aroma of light bourbon, caramel and butterscotch. Flavor begins on the sour side, then progresses to orange peel and coriander. Bourbon taste is subtle, mostly near the finish. Nicely complex, and decent body, better than the non-oak version. Very nice indeed. We had the last bourbon bottle, sorry!!

Bottle. Yellow beer with a small head., quite alot of yeast in the glass. Malty aroma. Sweet alcohol flavor with grapes. Decent but a bit too strong.

Christian (11282) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
Cloudy orange with small particles floating. Small white head. Fruity aroma with a little oak. Too sweet malty and dried fruit flavour with a hint of oak in the finish.

Bottle @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours lightly muddy orange-yellow with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Nice lacings. Aroma has grapes, apple, quite a vinious note and lots of sweet, sticky malts. Medium carbonation, nice fat mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly fruity, oak, dry, light vinious, sweet malts, grapes and apples. Finishes with fine green apple zestiness.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 25, 2011
Süß karamelliger Antrunk mit leichten Alkoholnoten, die nicht weiter stören. Vollmundiger und süßer Mittelteil, hier sind Holz- und Traubennoten vorhanden, auch hier ist der Alkohol erahnbar. Im Hintergrund lauern weinartig angehauchte Malzaromen. Der Alkohol steigt zum Ende in die Nase, dennoch kann man insgesamt von einer guten Balance sprechen. Ein wenig herb, Rund, vollmundig. Hellmalziges, fruchtig süßes Finish. Ein echt leckeres Bier! 11/12/12/12/11/12
