3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2013
bottle-conditioned 750ml. careful pour is lightly hazed light amber with a large off-white lasting head. rich hop aromatics of flowers, citrus / pineapple / mango, dried grass) with seemingly endless depth to the yeast (basement must, spices, dried herbs, minerals). enjoyable but muted crackers and bread crust pale malt expression. medium-light body with high effervescence and soft malt texture; strongly spicy and bitter, pithy and somewhat astringent at times, but with the malt soft as it is the hop brashness can be taken. chewy sweet pale malt sugars across the front and middle with a lingering oiliness late in a vibrant, spicy, mineral-heavy finish. lovely stuff. I wish a local producer could put something out like this.

Dit was niet echt mijn smaak. Dan was de hop harvest van 2011 een pak beter.

rosenbergh (6700) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. BBE 2017. William K, Helsinki, Finland. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweetness, mild yeast, some old hops and malt in the aroma. The flavour is super sweet malt, deep hops, mild bitterness and some mild sourness. This tastes unfresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 3, 2014
2012 Edition. Swietne chmielne i zywiczne w zapachu. Niesamowicie pacznace morela. W smaku wytrawne hwiaty bzu jakby. Kolor pomaranczowo jasny, silnie metny z kremowa i trwala nieustepujaca piana. Piwo krzepkie tresciwe choc ma malo alkoholu doskonale syci. W sam raz do posilku. Niezapomniane w smaku chmiele belgijskie oczywiscie. Super smacznie bylo, polecam kazdemu

TET (1621) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
A hazy, orange beer with a big, cloudy and white head. The nose is fresh, fruits, oranges and spices. Nicely aromatic. Taste of fruits, some spicyness, oranges, the hops are aromatic as a citrusfruity and slightly herbal. The end is hoppy and dry. Medium bodied, high carbonation that is nicely balanced with fresh impression. Nicely aromatic and hoppy beer, what this beer would be if the botle would be more fresh, good beer.

lucanna77 (28) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2014
Assaggiata in bottiglia qualche giorno fà. Purtroppo ho trovato solo la 2012 e non la 2013. Bel colore giallo, bella schiuma bianca, un po’ grossolana. Naso scarso con lievissimi sentori erbacei. Al palato purtroppo è stata un po’ una delusione: corpo scarico, lievi sentori erbacei e leggero amaro. Alla prima occasione va assaggiata una versione imbottigliata di fresco, perdendo troppo col passare del tempo.

Bottle from Barleywine enjoyed at home
Golden clear, massive beige head. Smells of belgian yeast esters, malts, some grass and phenols. Light sweet, quite fruity, yeast esters, some meaty flavors, spicy. Medium bitter finish, quite intense hops. Overall not very exciting

Big bottle. Bought it with the XX Bitter at the same time... both turned out to be skunked, but this one much less, only a quarter of the way (?) so it wasn’t completely ruined. Shared with a friend who immediately mentioned the skunk without prodding so I know I’m not crazy. But anyhow pours light amber off-white head, grassy/floral hops, grass straw esters and pepper flavour... I think this is my kind of beer, sadly.
