Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
No head, unclear orange body. Dry fruity smell. Fruit-yeasty taste with a spicy touch. Light bitter endnotes. Alright, but far from memorable (draught at GBBF, 06.08.2008).

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. Warm golden, hazy, with an OK head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of fruit, malt and candy sugar. The flavour has a light sweetness, a spicy bite, notes of yeast, citrus, candy sugar and malt.

vyvvy (4133) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Pours cloudy copper with a fluffy white head and dancing carbonation. The aroma is powdery with floral traits, lavender, estery, earthy yeast that is gentle, earthy hops and a touch of spice. Medium body that is crisp with a touch of harshness and carbonation that is quite sharp. The flavor starts with the aroma traits, but is slightly more abrasive along with having more spices and a good bit of sweetness. The finish is a bit resiny and grainy. A good beer, but far from being worth the price.

Cask at GBBF ... nice odd hazy yellow ... huge banana fruit nose .. fruity dry and over bitter in linger.

Sigmund (5309) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Rerate, 330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.8%. Hazy pale golden colour, large white head. Otherwise as first sample. Original rating: Cask at the GBBF 2008. ABV was said to be 6.0%. Cloudy golden colour, low head. Lovely aroma of yeast, fruits, spices and honey. The flavour is yeasty and spicy / peppery, fairly dry, slightly medicinal in the finish.

RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2008
Cask@GBBF 2008. Golden beer with a lightly fruity and vinous aroma, the flavour is vinous and fruity. Overall a nice fruity and vinous beer.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Bottle, 6%, The Criterion, Leicester. Can’t believe I’ve not had anything from this brewer on my Belgian travels. Massive sweet medicinal Belgian snout oozing herbal spice and juniper. Cumin? Dense, almost curryish spice. Slick, pillowy, earthy and sessionable. Octo necked it. Spice, citrus, herbs. Can’t be any more specific. Was well on the way by now. Big at 6, but evilly mellow. Nick Drake ’Northern Sky’ on the jukebox. Delicious beer. Quite possibly The Greatest Pub On Earth.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
quite on the different side, it gives a herbal flavor including mint and rosemary. The malts are nice, the rest works well.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
The aroma is yeasty with basement smells hops, and malt. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s not that good.
