MrW (395) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2013
75cl, found in the cellar of my aunt. BB 2010, but we took a shot. Fruity aroma, subtle, icetea, peche, herbs. Amber clear, no head, loads of little sparkles. Sweet, fruity, apple, icetea peche. A bit fizzy, light bodied, watery finish, slowly goes into a slight bitterness. It was worth the shot!

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75cl brown bottle, best before May 2010, drank early April 2010. Brewed for a TV programme apparently. Hazey, cloudy, amber/light terracotta body. A huge snow white sat on top, soon shrank to a thinner covering, but still a full covering with some heavy lacing on the glasses. Herbs, hoppy, yeasts, malts, a good mix of smells, getting sweeter as the beer warmed. Coriander and curaçao are used in the brew (hence the herbs in the smell?). I thought it a bit boring in flavour, dry yet with caramel hints. The body seemed flat, thin and weak, sadly unimpressed. For an unfiltered Belgian Pale Ale it lacked umph.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of grainy malts, yeast, and a touch of hops. Flavor was kind of lemony and herbal with some sweetness.

Courtesy of ekstedt. Pours clear amber with a small off white head leaving some lace. Aroma is cloves, nutmeg, yeasty, malty, sweet and fruity. Very nice. Flavor is fruity, sweet, candy, slight sourness and a bit bitter. Finishes short bitter sweet.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle from the designer. Aroma of honey, oxidized nose (a bit old), ripe peaches and pears. Dark, cloudy, salmon-brown color. Sweet and biscuity, with honey and stewed peaches. Old, smooth, nice enough but probably better fresh.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
In Geruch und Antrunkwerden süße Kärauteraromen ersichtlich, die sich mit hefigen Beitönen weiter fortsetzen. Vollmundiger Mittelteil, der aber aufgrund der Süße nicht so intensiv wie gewünscht wird. Auch später noch dueltiuch kräuterartig, dazu holzig-trocken, etwas Kiefer. Süffig, ausgewogen. 8/11/11/10/5/11
