hawthorne00 (2736) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2013
2012 bottle, 10% ABV. Hazy amber with a coat of beige head that never quite disappears. Aroma of Seville orange marmalade, coriander, dough, peaches, grappa. Syrupy, low carbonation. Bittersweet citrus flavours - boiled bitter oranges, old lemons, orange zest, , apricots, spices, medicinal herbs. Fairly boozy, but not hot. A bit Italian digestif-like, which - whilst not very surprising - is charming. Good.

KyotoLefty (7366) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Nose of caramel, peaches, esters, marmalade, alcohol. Orange-brown with lace. Flavors of pineapple, orange, peach, lovely flavors but still far too alcoholic and not integrated. Very tangy, but mostly hot. Should have waited 5 more years.

shoulderbroken (2643) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle at tasting, thanks Mark. Golden amber colour, not much head. Aroma is booze, herbal, bit chemically, lots more booze, marmalade, calvados. Taste is nice enough, quite fruity, bit of strange caramel sweetness. Secretly kicking me in the nuts. Fruity sweetness and tastes quite tripel like. Quite a weird one. I like it but it is probably not doing me any good. Finish is a bit marzipan and sweet.

Dried fruit, malt and leather in the aroma. A hint of alcohol is noticeable, but it’s pretty well integrated. Nice taste, perfect beer.

TimE (3990) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2013
Hazy amber orange color, no head. Caramel, marmalade, medicinal and tons of alcohol. Fuckin eh, very rough, oranges, caramel, hugely rough and completely not ready yet, this is very raw. Alcohol dominates so fuckin much. Way way way not ready yet. Blah. Has tons of potential, but totally drain pour.

Rune (9095) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2012
The 330ml 2011 vintage bottle with lotto 214-11 was bought in late March 2012 at Johnny’s Off License (Via Veio) in Roma. Cloudy amber coloured body, slightly off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced fruity aroma, hints of apricot and herbal hops. Subdued vapour of alcohol. The taste character has got a bittersweet citrus peak with candy sweetness and yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lingering bittersweet ending with noticeable alcohol. Soft in the mouth. Full bodied. Enjoyed for about an hour at home in Tromsø, 30.12.2012.

malombra (38) - NUOVA OLONIO(SO), ITALY - DEC 21, 2012
Troppo acida ed alcoolica, la trovo parecchio sbilanciata. Non male al naso, comunque, Piu’ stramba che realmente buona.

Mortlach (1156) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 15, 2012
15/12/2012 Bir&Fud (tap). Bevuta a Birre Sotto l’Albero. Ambrata co nriflessi fulvi, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca, buona persistenza. Al naso sentori di caramello, note zuccherose, scorza di arancia, miele, spezie, una leggerissima punta acidula. In bocca è dolce, caramellata, zuccherosa, sentori di lieviti, finale pulito, alcol molto ben nascosto. Corpo pieno, carbonazione corretta, gradazione alcolica importante. La migliore interpretazione del genere in Italia.
