Bottle at MesandSim’s Wedding. Poured clear gold with a healthy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy but not the hop fest I was expecting, some citrus, little herbs and spices. Flavour is similar, quite sweet. Would certainly drink again but perhaps the competition was too stiff at the wedding. Nice though. Nothing to report down below.

My 4000th rating. 330ml bottle batch 001Best before 12/05/12. Nose is resin and toffee with hints of spice. Clear orange with a medium lightly lacing off white head. Flavor is very lightly bitter with toffee sweetness. Still pretty good after 4+ years. Of course it’s more s barleywine now.

Bottle. Appearance - amber and hazy with a nice fluffy head. Nose - a mixture of marmalade and iron tablets. Taste - strawberry jam and herbs. Palate - close to medium bodied with a rich sweet texture and a decent drying finish. Overall - not the sticky mess I expected it to be, ho ho!

Rated based on notes taken 11 July 2014 -- Wow, for an IPA that’s 2 years old this beer drinks pretty darn well. Oh yeah and Viagra, I think it breaks down over time. No boners for me tonight. :-(

Forgot to rate this one way back. Poured and amber color, topped with a decent white frothy head. Nice retention. Fruity aroma with some herbal presence. Taste starts with some sweetness, followed by a very decent hoppy bitterness.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt honing, caramel, vanille. Prettige zoetige geur. Smaakt zoetig, honing, caramel. Tikkeltje bitter.

Bottle at paultje. Thanks to Max. Smells fruity, sweet fruit, honey. Tastes fruity, bit licorice or laurier, herbs and spices. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky dry texture.

Heerlijk bier dat ze bij Jays Waalwijk op de fles hadden. Ik dronk er een paar op mijn verjaardag op 18-04-2011 maar staat me nog steeds bij. Daarna nog 1x gedronken in 05-2011 en daarna helaas nooit meer gezien. Een van de betere in zijn soort.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from the brewery, drunk at home 11th June 2011 with tashi. Amber with a persistent small white head. Peppery, spicier nose than Punk or Hardcore. Taste has some of the guarana, with sweet malts and the expected citrus flavours from the hops. Has a parma violet hint too.

Backlog review, bottle tasted 05/30/2011. Pours hazy dark amber, respectable head with foamy lacing. Aroma is extremely herbal and piney, smells like a bag of freshly mowed grass shavings, overtones of caramel malt. Taste follows the nose: vegetal, medicinal herbal weed (not the good kind) flavor dominates, long bitter finish. Medium body, thickens a bit with warmth. Kind of a chore to get through, and no positive side effects to speak of.
