TheBeerGod (5183) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle - 750mL corked and crowned. Orange-amber with a short, bubbly white head. Aroma is slightly boozy with lots of wood and wine atop grape skins, candied apple, yeast and flowery notes. Taste is wet wood, wine, grape skins, candied fruit, sweet malt notes, flowers, yeast, pineapple cake, booze and slightly tart fruit. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. There’s light stickiness and only soft alcoholic warmth. Finishes with more abundant wine and wood notes, tart fruits, candied fruit notes, sweet malt, lighter cake notes, yeast and booze. Yummy! Perfect Christmas beer!

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. 2010 vintage. Hazy amber orange pour with a loose off white head. Short lived head at that. Interesting nose with lots of oak and vinous notes. Night light tartness pairs nicely against the Belgian yeast notes and overall sweetness. Slight nail polish note on the back end. Glad I got to have it, but the price is pretty steep compared to what you get.

A bit sour taste. Not really my thing. Though very complex and dynamic, which is good. Great smell. Good beer.

Bamsen78 (2978) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours murky orange amber with small and airy off-white head. Complex, vinous and sweetish aroma of hops, flowers, yeast and fruit. Heavym sweetish onset of malt and fruit, giving way to vinous notes and fruity and floral notes. Discernible and warming alcohol presence. Lingering, complex and burdensome aftertaste. Very nice, indeed. If only it looked better!

Bottle 750ml @ fonefan
Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wood, vinous, funky and red wine. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long funky, vinous and fruity finish. Body medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy, orange colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma has a touch of nailpolish remover, it’s vinous and lighlty spiced, with lots of fruityness. Tropical fruits and some sugar. The flavor has a little sourness, with vinous hints, spice notes and quite a lot of fruityness. It’s quite warming on the palate, full-bodied and effervescent, and feeling dry even though it’s sweet. It’s quite bitter too, both in the initial and the final flavor. Starting quite boring and sort of disappointing this one, but then it turns out to be really pleasant, but I have to admit I prefer the regular edition by far. 131122

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Hazy orange with a small white head. Lots of fruit in the aroma, with oak, wine, spice and a bit of funk. Sweet and tart fruity flavour with lots of oak, red berries, caramel and quite a bit of alcohol. A bit over-the-top barrel character for me
