Pyrmir (3759) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Sample from bottle at Uppsala Beer. Hazy dark golden with white head. Aroma boozy, vinous barrel, some sweet malt, woody resin, light caramel and grapefruit. Taste is complex and intense, vinous, barrel, alcohol, caramel, grapefruit with a tingly bitterness in the finish. Really nice!

9/I/15 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: VIII/2015 (2015-27) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark orange beer, big creamy off-white head, little stable, adhesive. Aroma: apples indeed! Calvados, apple sauce, fruity, little oxidized, some sherry notes. MF: ok but lively carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, apple juice, calvados, yet not too boozy at all, apple sauce, little spicy. Aftertaste: calvados, apple juice, some tannins, little bitter.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 08/2015. Grazie a te Matteo! De couleur orangée, col moyen blanc. Arôme au bouquet renforcé de Calvados, les effluves de barrique et de pomme sont bien en évidence. De cela on en tire très peu des houblons, juste une touche malt résiduelle de caramel persiste. Palais offre de suite le caractère du Calva. Un profil agréable de pomme se fait présent sans être surfait. Les 11% restent présent mais n’enlèvent en rien la facilité de dégustation. Note une petite rondeur avec un résiduel doux sucré. Parait tout sauf une DIPA tant le Calvados est présent. Note un profil plus belge, plus particulièrement sur la fin où un côté levure belge se manifeste. Un bel usage du Calvados.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Mother Kelly’s, to sup at home while watching the Italian Grand Prix F1 race. Light aroma with a little hint of candied fruit peel. Balanced & smooth taste - everything comes together well with a hint of the calvados in there. A successful barrel-aged beer IMHO in that the barrel elements haven’t dominated or been too heavy, and the beer tastes mature and ’together’.

Jmar33 (183) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. This is a big boozy beer! very sweet and sticky, but not as much apple flavour as I was expecting; the barrels have mainly emphasised the booziness. Still a very delicious beer!

Sevenlee (1505) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange with a beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, pine, oaky, grass and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Not bad.
