culchiem (2543) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold with a dense white head. Spiced aroma and a very tangy palate. Yeast, wheat but all lifted with an Indian food spiciness. Very smooth considering the alcohol level

fantti (710) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu nimikkolasiinsa kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja todella kestävää sorttia. Väkisin tulee saman panimon White mieleen, niukemmalla vaahdolla. Haju on hieman viileänä tasainen sekoitus mausteisuutta, marjaisuutta ja kuivattua hedelmää. Hieman myös marjapensasta on mukana. Maku on vahvasti aniksinen ja runsaasti muitakin mausteita on mukana. Taustalla on myös kuivattua hedelmää, mutta anis jyrää kyllä jopa anisfanin mielestä turhankin paljon muiden yli. Suutuntuma on reilun hiilihappoinen ja muutenkin melko täyteläinen. Humalointia löytyy, yllättävän vahvasti. Alkoholikin tuntuu, muttei häiritsevästi. Olutvuoden 2013 avaus on kyllä erittäin vahvaa belgituotosta, joskin anis jyrää hieman liian paljon. Onneksi se kuitenkin on anis, sillä pidän siitä oluessa erittäin paljon. Jos se olisi vaikka inkivääri, niin pisteet ja arvio voisi olla hyvinkin erilainen...

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a big white head and excellent lacing. Served at near room temperature the aroma is citrus and banana. The taste is sweet with banana and spices. Very good and hides the alcohol quite nicely.

hirigalzkar (2295) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. This was somewhat a dissapointment. It lacks the balance of the regular offerings from this brewer. The yeast is cloying and the alohol too strong.

finol (2169) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2013

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2012
750ml bottle. Poured a hazy deep blonde color with a large off white head with nice retention and lacing. Aroma consists of fruity esters and spice with some herbal and grassy hoppy notes and sweet malt. Spice really comes out in the taste, evened out with some soft fruit notes of apple and grape, and a solid backing of doughy sugars. Dry and spicy on the finish. The mouthfeel is is fuller bodied, with lively carbonation.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2012
0.75 L corked and wired bottle, enjoyed at Papsoe’s summer tasting. Thanks to yespr for sharing. Pours a shady bright golden, topped by a firm off-white head. At first, an inviting floral aroma with a whiff of lavender. Then some coriander seeds, mild spices in general, and a whiff of fruity yeast. Taste is gently sweet. Medium malty, toffee and caramel. Lots of spices and floral tones, nicely integrated. Fresh fruity yeast tones. Just enough bitterness to balance. Smooth, fairly hot in the mouth. Spices, mostely coriander linger in warming finish.
