Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Beautiful dark orange/bronze pour, with a big foamy white head, that clings to the glass and lasts forever. Sweet and fruity aroma of peaches, hops, barley crops/barn. Fullbodied, sweet upfront, and finishes sweet and bitter. Long aftertaste.

Strong fruity hop aroma. Foggy amber/orange with huge offwhite head (Looks so tasty). Thick almost creamy and long lasting. Fruity (sweet) hoppyness with some spice.

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 6, 2013
Draught, Csakajósör, Budapest.
Clear golden one with a nice creamy white head. Moderated aroma of some grape, light malts, spicies and fruits. Oily, rich bodied ale with a fruity start, well hidden alcohol numbling my palate, at the finish the hop arrives with a fine resinous-grape character. Nice!

Alusmamuts (289) - LATVIA - JUL 29, 2013
Cloaudy light brown with medium white cap. Balanced ipa taste with focus on the tongue centre - from sweet on the top to bitter on the root

PriorL (1779) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2013
Taster at Delirium Brussels. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small rather unstable head. NOSE: obviously nelson sauvin hop, pepper, orange peels, grapes. TASTE: pepper, sauvin, dry, too bitter, pineapple, little fruity.

Pyrmir (3356) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2013
On tap. Hazy bright orange with big fluffy head. Aroma is sharp and bitter, resin, and biscuit notes. Taste is very bitter and harsh, citrus, pine, nutty and toasted notes with spice notes. Alcohol is well hidden.

TheJestersBeer (2076) - SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Draught @ Sorbon. Pours a hazy medium orange, with a white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, rhubarb, apricot, grapefruit, grass, orange. Off dry, full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. The taste picks up where the aroma left off, adding herbs, gooseberries and peaches. Pretty damn solid, if you have a rhubarb fetish this is the beer for you. (2013-06-14)

I had no idea this was actually a 10% whopper. I thought it was a big, chewy IPA but it was so drinkable I didn’t suspect it was so powerful. Glad I didn’t have too much. Good hop, malt balance.

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangée, col blanc crémeux moyen. Arôme est malté, note de drêche avec un houblon qui reste modéré. Le côté Sauvin reste assez discret contribuant à cet ajout fruité et herbacé typique. Palais est malté avec un léger côté grillé-caramel pour un fruité et cette signature de Sauvin qui se retrouve noyé dans une marée de malts. Bière reste trop monodimensionnelle avec un profil alcoolisé qui est, pour moi, trop important pour mettre en avant le caractère du Nelson Sauvin.

Thx! to Antoine. Draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Hazy orange with a big creamy white head. Nose is bit oddly this thick, fruity & floral syrupy stuff, lots of syrup, floral with some white grapes,… Taste is very syrupy white grapes, hint corn, spices, sweet malts, fruity, bitter floral, huge malts,… Body is thick & syrupy,.. Not bad & good for Flying Dog I suppose – still Flying Dog without having the label in front of you is not really the same – reference to draft vs. bottle.
