Bottle at beer festival. Poured a slightly murky orange with a white head. Got mostly floral and hoppy notes in the nose. Lively bubbles with an aggressive bitterness on the taste. OK

750 ml capped and corked green bottle. ABV is 8%. Cloudy golden brown colour, large head, slightly off-white. The label warns of "very bitter taste". Strong aroma of Belgian ale yeast and hops. The flavour is not "very bitter" in my book, but certainly bitter enough to be interesting. Base notes of fruit and medium sweet malts make the beer very drinkable. Warming mouthfeel from the spices used.

Yorker (1162) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2014
Corked 75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are coffee, herbs, and citrus - with a slightly dry finish.

rosenbergh (6683) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
750 ml bottle. Lot #25/8/12. BBE 2016. Courtesy of olio. Hazy orange amber colour with a tiny off-white head. The aroma is quite interesting with mild sourness, pine, spruce, berries, spices, mild coffee, vegetables and yeast. The flavour is interesting... or weird... Vegetables, malt, lots of spices, yeast, alcohol and mild hops and pine. Quite messy to be honest. Lots of alcohol with the yeast poured in... Messy.

olio (6140) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
75 cl bottle.
Pours cloudy amber color with a small head. Quite weird aroma, some apricot, spices, vegetable notes, yeast, coffee is barely noticeable. Very faint coffee on the flavor, a bit veggie-like already, spices, yeast. Alcohol comes through a bit on the nose at least. Quite weird to say the least, not sure what to think of this.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber orange colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet jam-like apricot, citrus, pine and spiciness. Flavour is, well, weird; sweet apricot, caramel, really pungent spiciness, grass, herbs, coffee bitterness and grains. Alcohol comes through. Medium bodied. Weird to say the least. A bit messy too.

JorisPPattyn (7886) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Good, dense yellow head, rather stable over hazy, finely carbonated copper-orange beer. Dry, ground coffee, and a fruity side aroma, difficult to say what fruit. Again outspoken cold coffee, roasted and bitter. Finish is a tad peppery, both in feel as in flavour. Faint sourishness around the edges. Feels quite carbonated, slick and medium bodied. Essentially unidimensional, and unfortunately, far from my favourite dimension...

BenH (2258) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Cold coffee on the aroma, some light yeasty spice. Taste has less coffee and more of a Belgian yeast party, very phenolic, peppry spice. Quite bitter.
