suprchunk (2962) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
A deep toffee colored pour. Slim head settles in after falling from a medium off-white froth. Not much lacing. Smell is malty, slight wood, leather, bit of acetic. A dry malty taste with a big tangy presence. Slightly sour. Not too bad. But not what was expected at all.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 28, 2013
33cl bottle. Brown/red with small head. Nose : apple, grapes. Tart. Lambic. Sip : medium body with almost no carbonation. Sweet and fruity. Covered with compote like sourness. It has no bitterness. Narrow taste but funny as it reminds grandmas fruit punch.

Scopey (12677) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle at Bierboom, Bruges. It pours deep ruby with a small beige head. The nose is tangy fruit, cherry, blackcurrant, whisky, faint vanilla and wood. The taste is tart berry, red grape, blackcurrant, cherry, jam, wood and light alcohol with a dry finish. Med+ body and fine carbonation. Not much to it, but it is rather tasty. Hides abv very well indeed.

Benzai (14262) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Joes. Dark red brown color, no head at all. Aroma of wood and a touch of sourness. Taste some sourness that’s actually quite overwhelming. Why would you bottle this? It’s more like red fruits and red wine instead of whisky. Basically it just sucks.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
33cl bottle shared by 77ships @kraddel’s Post TdG 2013 tasting. - Slightly unblanced, thin-bodied balsamico oud bruin with a whiff of vanilla whisky cask aroma and a decent quality malt base. Hides it proper ABV well but lacks profile and conviction.

tderoeck (8180) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2013
22/IV/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB:XII/2016 (2013-363) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy deep red orange beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, caramel, nutty, lots of alcohol, sugary, smells very oxidized. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sour, red wine, more sourish, unpleasant bitterness that collides with the sour taste, cranberries and bitter grape peels. Aftertaste: sourish, lemony, dry, more lemony, red grape peel, bitter ending. Nope, this can’t be right...

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
33cl bottle courtesy of 77ships @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Fresh. Trouble ambrée, col moyen blanc cassé. Arôme donne de suite ces notes des 11%, avec un bouquet belge typique. Palais est ici aussi bien alcoolisé suivi de qcq notes de cask boisé pour un whisky très léger. Pétillant moyen mais qui termine assez plat. Malté avec ce profil fruité fermenté. Au final la bière est un peu partout, et on se perd à savoir le but original de la bière.
