weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Cask at The New Oxford in Salford. Cloudy yellowy gold with a decent fluffy white head. Sweet and fresh tasting. Notes once again for me are terrible as I was very drunk. Enjoyed it though, very nice. Re=rate - not as nice on second (more sober tasting). Ok but lowered the numbers.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 13, 2010
Draught at the brewery’s pub.
Hazy golden body with a fine white lacing head. Mild sweet fruity aroma, some toffee and caramel, some belgian yeast character. The flavor is similar as the aroma with nothing so special. Easy hop in the finish.

ClarkVV (5798) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Draught at Novare Res, 5/17/15
Mostly clear, deep brassy-amber body is topped by a small white head with moderate to low retention.
I’d always wanted to try something from this brewery, but haven’t read anything overly outstanding about them, and after a few sniffs from the glass, I wasn’t feeling too optimistic. Sweetbreads, light cake icing and near-spoiled peaches, with some rustic earthiness all lead me to believe I was in for an underfermented journey...Granted, the alcohol wasn’t too apparent, nor were there any raw/fusel-like notes or horribly offensive esters (not a nose full of bubble gum/cotton candy), though the peachy notes were a bit off-putting....
And yes, sweet in flavor it certainly was, though there was something a touch endearing that somewhat saved the experience. Bready flavors and sweet honeyed malts combine with a zesty fruitiness (peaches, nectarines) but at the same time are almost balanced by a dry, earthy flavor that could either be hops or yeast phenols/acids. It gave the impression of an American trippel, being otherwise quite clean and rather simplistic. Citrus rinds, pineapple and sweet white dough persist on the end, with a bit of alcohol warmth. Fine. Was expecting a lot worse based on the aroma. Not syrupy nor underfermented, despite the high level of maltiness.

Bosbouw (2663) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2015
Mooie oranje kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, honing, kruiden. Beetje zoetig. Smaakt zoetig, fruitig, stroop.

jamaty (1867) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 16, 2016
Anaranjada turbia. Aroma a naranja. Sabor malteado con bastante contrapunto de naranja y bastante equlibrio entre dulce y amarga. Buen cuerpo y sabor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
