hawthorne00 (2706) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle, 11C. Dull copper with a coat of light beige head. Aroma of sherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, cherry vinegar. Taste has light fruit sweetness with some aged caramel and chocolate, big woody spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg and aniseed quite prominent and not all that well integrated. Finish is mildly astringent with spices. The flavours are OK but somehow don’t come together.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2011
On tap at the Local Taphouse, Sydney. Pours a deep copper colour, with a medium dense beige head. Aromas of sweet caramel, biscuit, cinnamon and a herb i couldn’t put my finger on. The flavours that popped to me were tart apples, cinnamon, bread, toffee and was slightly sour. Quite a thick and oily mouthfeel.

Chewy caramel with warming spices. This was had on tap at the Wheatsheaf in Thebarton through a Randall full of Tasmanian blueberries.

j12601 (7395) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle at the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Lightly boozy. Sweet at the start, caramel and chewy malt. Dries out on the finish, with light yeast and warming alcohol on the end.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 On tap at Holgate but unfortunately served in a plastic glass due to the Hanging Rock races. Better than previous samples that have been faulty. Spicy stewed fruits with good fizz levels that gives the palate a nice lift. A little pongy but right in line with the play book.

Dark brown, cloudy with a biege head. Aroma is very faint and almost undetectable. Very bitter taste of caramel and fruit. Lovely warming sensation, especially in the lingering after taste.

Samma (77) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap at Brewery. This is a surprisingly easy supper. Somewhat acidic overtones give way to a sweet, full- mouthed, low-carbonated gem. Am waiting to now taste the six I bought in bottles.

Bottle. I was actually expecting more sourness and funk from this. Probably has quite reached the heady heights this style can get to.

oh6gdx (21962) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2010
Amber colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is nutty and chocolaty with some mild spicyness. Flavour is chocolate, coffee, fruits and some mild notes of wood. Pleasant, but not that Biere de Gardeish...
