Countbeer (4043) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
Bottle: Served in a taster: Small white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of flowers, yellow fruit, some yeast, some citrus... Flavours of porridge, earth, some yellow fruit, vinous, malts and bitters with a light spicy edge. Aftertaste is a mix of red fruit, malts, yeast and light spicy. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. No real traces of Calvados BA... But a good beer.

Ragnampiza (219) - ITALY - MAR 10, 2014
330 ml bottle from Artigian Beer, served in a shaker glass. Dark and rich sunrise orange, almost amber, with a very small off-white head, which dissipated quickly leaviing a tiny ring of foam. Mesmerizing aroma, complex and powefrul, with notes of red fruits under spirit, burnt caramel and toffee, wet wood, leather. Zero alchool on the nose. Toeasted malts emerging in the mouth, quite fruity, again caramel (sticky and sweet), a hint of alchool, but I’d never guess about 11%+! Resiny aftertaste, which lasts forever. Extremely soft carbonation, medium to full body and oily texture. I had never tasted a shot of Calvados, but now I have to! Lovely stuff, great barrel aging.

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Strong caramelly sweetness, much sourness and some sweet and sour vinegar like notes. Very strange. Sour candy. Vinegary aftertaste.

330 ml bottle. #3898. LS 49/12. BB 09/2014. Courtesy of Brandman. Hazy mahogany colour with no head. Sweet fruity and berries, strong sweet maltiness and caramel in the aroma. The flavour is mild sourness, sweet maltiness, caramel sweetness and lots of more sweetness... sweetness. Very smooth and enjoyable for a 11.2% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (9847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle on The Train Tasting, Part I. Pours lightly hazy, orange-gold with a light, white foam head. Nose of dried fruits, pale wood, apple and honey. Medium sweet flavor with more honey, sugary bread and bruised apples. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky ripe fruit finish with faint alcohol warmth, light woodiness, more apple and honey, bread. Moderate dryness to finish as well. Nice stuff.
