HonusWagner (1872) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2013
An oil-slick of a beer, really sweet with overbearing barrel character but traces of really interesting dark fruit lying within. Not a success, moderately disappointing in fact, but not terrible.

weihenweizen (2497) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Dark brown with light brown highlights, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is bourbon, wood, vanilla, and some dark fruit. I would probably like this better with more carbonation.

procraste (306) - FRANCE - JUL 22, 2015
Constatation 1: " Mince yapa’d’bulles " Constatation 2: " Mince yapurien dans le verre " Dégustée en regardant "les fraises sauvages" de Bergman ( Chic, n’est ce pas ? ). La preuve que l’on peut faire de véritables bonnes bières sans mettre du piment ... Vraie belle complexité du vieillissement, ainsi qu’une grande longueur en bouche. Joli design intriguant. Un délice donc, devant un très beau film. Une belle soirée ...

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Murky ruby brown, decent tan ringed pillow. Nose is inky coconut, rich brass vanilla and loose brown sugar. Decent enough thick, rich dark cherry and stalky sugar with a real vibrant barrell buzz. There’s viscosity and there’s a buzz - mouthfeel is what sells this to me. Sails the linger a long, long way into the sunset. Finishes like a bunch of raisins have been leeching on the wood, linger is peppery and sherry sweet with more dark fruit burn.
The swooping balance did this all for me, everything lined up and the sweetness was something wizardry.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Deep dark pruney fruity nose. Thin brown color, flat. Condensed prunes and raisins, rich and pleasant, a hit of light tobacco,. Fruity sweeness rules the mid palate and final. Medium-heavy body. Great flavors, not overdone.
