Idiosynkrasie (3847) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2014
650ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, darkest brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Vinous aroma, raisin notes, hints of grapes, red berries and their parings, a perceptible amount of alcohol. Taste is slightly dry malty, slightly vinous, dry hints of fruit parings, a touch of raisin, a touch of alcohol in the finish. Nothing spectacular.

Fatehunter (1236) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw, almost red colored body. The aroma is big dry grain, caramel and salt. The taste has lots of caramel and grain sweetness with lemon bitterness to balance it out. The texture is fizzy with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable.

HeadyDE (506) - Delaware, USA - SEP 5, 2014
bomber pour produces a medium dark caramel brown color with little bit of head...nose does have that angostura bittery aroma mixed in with some cherry as well..mouthfeel is kind of strange with some of the orange producing citrus tang but doesn’t seem to go well with whatever type of belgian ale they were going for here...not really digging this one very much...not real complex offering...
