Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Murky amber with a bubbly head. Papaya, green apple, a huge amount of potato and yeast showing up in the nose. Yeasty taste. Some cat’s piss and spring onion in the taste. Unrefined bittereness. A lot of residual sugars in the finish. Very poor.

Braudog (6219) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle, although mine’s labeled as 7.5% Nice light amber hue with a standing head of tight bubbles. The aroma is flourishing and floral. This drinks with a decidedly perfumed character, complete with an almost soapy finish. The alcohol lingers for quite some time, cloying and assaulting the palate. (#4435, 1/7/2012)

thegreenrooster (3893) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Pour is a hazy ornage with a large white head. Aroma is honeydew with some pine. Flavor is a little better with a decent hoppy backbone and a decent malt base. Finish is sweet but bitter. It’s ok and probably better fresher than the bottle I have.

rodenbach99 (4066) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Bière orangé-brune avec une belle mousse beige compacte et durable, la mousse est crémeuse. Le nez est de pomme vert, de caramel vieilli. La bouche est dure, forte, agressive, désobligeante. La finale provoque des grimaceries tellement l’amertume de l’alcool est prononcée. 4/10

SlovakSniper (4815) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2011 (33 cl) Un liquide orangé et plutôt sale tombe lourdement dans mon verre. À l’œil, c’est le calme plat : je cherche les bulles et la tête. Au nez, les malts sont pondéreux, fait de gros caramel et de sirop d’érable. Les houblons semblent bien être écrasés, peut-être perdent-ils encore quelques fruits. Le goût est dominé par l’alcool et les sucres. Quelques notes amères sont ressenties mais s’installent difficilement. En bouche, le liquide est pesant. Les bulles sont mortes. La texture est sirupeuse. La finale est chaude et sucrée. En résumé, un vin d’orge aromatisé au sirop d’érable plutôt moyen....

TBone (15703) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Draught@Beer Hunters, Pori (ABV 7.5 %)
Dark ruby-amber color, small off-white head. Sticky berryish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Quite witty hoppyness, light pale malty backbone, some alcohol. Long lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent.
