(Bottle, 0.33 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured brown and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had berries, vanilla, malts and sourness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, malts, sweetness, vanilla and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and bitter. I detected no saltiness. This was just a beer forgotten in oak barrels.

FatPhil (10702) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks someone at the Laiti tasting!
Sweetish malty aroma, some saltiness. Deep hazy orange, smallhead, Full smooth palate. Tastes orangey. Nice rich malts, some more saltiness. An odd one. Not really a gose at all, or a barley wine. Leaves me with question marks. Like didn’t Chris P share this at the sour tasting we held - and, if so, where’s my rating of that?

weark (422) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof - De couleur ambrée rubis avec une fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas longtemps - Au nez des arômes de vanille provenant du fut, le fut est très présent, une forte présence de malt, malt caramel, de fruits confits, de pruneaux, des notes de cidre, un nez assez plaisant mais un peu écoeurant - En bouche des notes acides mélangée à du caramel très doux, des arômes de pruneaux et beaucoup de malt, le fut est toujours aussi présent - Corp rond et puissant, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, sucrée et acide, longue final acide et fruits sec - un drôle de mélange un peu écoeurante pas mon style de bière mais très bien réalisée

Marduk (3849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2015
330ml bottle @laiti’s, thanks. Hazy light brown color. No head. Sour, salty, vinegar and some fruity tones in aroma. Sour, bit vinegar, grainy, malts and touch of salt in taste. Salty sour aftertaste. At this point I don’t get any alcohol from beers *hick*. Waking me up type of brew.

DwarfeD (1562) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Clear burgundy with a small white soapy head with low retention. Full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some sour and bitter tones. Caramel, ripe fruits, vinegar, green apple, alcohol and spices. A tasty full flavoured brew.

Alengrin (3148) - BELGIUM - APR 12, 2015
One of the countless inventive Molen brews, presented as an oak-aged "imperial Gose" - a style experiment proving the seemingly endless creativity of this and other Dutch craft breweries nowadays. Two year old vintage. Beautiful, lightly hazy, warm coppery amber colour, loose, lightly greyish white head breaking open in instants but retaining well around the edges. Complex, rustic, noble bouquet of strawberry yoghurt, lime, vanilla-like oaky tannins, caramel, hazelnuts, redcurrant, passion fruit, lots of tangelo and blood orange, cognac, cloves, medium dry sherry (very clearly so, undoubtedly coming from an early stage of oxidation), brown rhum, candied cherries, honey. Refined but very sweet, even somewhat sugary onset, candied fruits, fortunately not too sticky, gracious and refreshing along with a sharpish, lemony acidic touch enlightening the palate, spicy suggestions (cloves, aniseed) retronasally, oily, smooth caramelly maltiness underneath, finishing in lingering sweetness as well as persisting but gentle acidity, lots of wood, peppery and somewhat citrussy hops providing more aroma than bitterness, and expectedly a great deal of warming, almost burning, rhum-like alcohol, heating up the throat but not becoming too wry or astringent; very vinous too. A complex ’upper class’ ale, with a very long flavour development. In terms of style, this is indeed a tough one to classify; it does have the sourishness of a Gose, but I do not find any saltiness in it at all (salt is not mentioned among the ingredients either - anyway, if it would have been used, it would have to serve only as a means to increase certain flavours without becoming too noticeable by itself); still, in terms of looks, strength, sweetness, mouthfeel and overall impression, this is much closer to a barley wine, if you ask me. The fruity sour aspect does give it a kind of refreshing, frivolous graciousness which is absent in most any other barley wine, making it seem less strong than it is. In any case: very interesting beer, but perhaps a bit demanding for a tired palate...

Amber color, lacing. Great aroma of bourbon and hidden alcohol. Taste is well balanced, sweet, but also a little bit of sour aftertaste. Good drinkability.

jerohen (2062) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
Bottled from de Molen, Bodegraven. Amber colored, no sound upon opening of the bottle, but still a little bit of head. Alcoholic nose, lots of wood, sherry, fruit. Flavor is both sweet and sour, sherry again, fruity, wood. Very complex, however not very balanced. I doubt whether the end result reflects what the brewers had in mind when they started this brewing exercise. Not bad, but i’m glad caesar helped me out finishing the bottle.

Mesjasz (227) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Kolor: jasny herbaciany, troch? wchodzi w bursztyn. Piana/wysycenie: ci??ko si? pieni a jak ju? wymusi? pian?, to zaraz opada. Wysycenie nieskie. Zapach: kwa?ny, troch? podchodzi pod oude lambika, w tle troche aromatu s?odowego. Smak: s?ono-kwa?ny, wyra?nia podbudowa s?odowa. Lekko czu? w?dzone i winne nuty oraz przyjemnie rozgrzewaj?cy alkohol. Ocena: Piwo bardzo ciekawe, zdecydowanie dla tych szukaj?cych róznych piwnych dziwactw. Spodziewa?em si? ?e b?dzie bardziej s?one, ale to ledwo musni?cie. W ka?dym razie piwo jest smaczne, dosy? z?o?one, cho? jedna butelka wystacza w zupe?no?ci.
