BadAprilia1000 (237) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a hazy bright orange color and with a very effervescent white head. Aroma is very fruit, mango and banana most particularly, some apricot, yeast, honey, maybe some slight spiciness. Taste is fruit, mango, melon, banana, then to a brighter pear and apple and some apricot, then malt body that is ultra smooth, rich, almost creamy on the palate, and always a strong warming booze note throughout. Palate is pleasant but nothing spectacular. Overall, a very intriguing beer, yet less complex than some other Hof Ten’s I’ve had.

(backlog ZBF 04/2013) Cask sample courtesy of brewer, merci. Feels very light for the 10 ABV. Refined oily brandy palate, white grape sweetness, but all in all very contained: does not jump out of its restrained barrel-aged shell.

Very pleasent aroma but very lite. Amber in color,very clean looking with a great pure white head. Tons of flavor and one of the most unique blondes I have had. Flavors are all over the place from caramel,citrus,alcohol,spice and malt.

Cloudy yellow with a big, white head. Fruity aroma with pineapple, along with bready malt. Sweet pineapple and pear fruity flavour with malt and a grassy, hoppy finish

Cask @ ZBF 2013. Pours murky yellow golden with a large, bubbly, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, a bit of vanilla, weak citrus, subdued yeast. Low carbonation, nice oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sticky sweet, oaky, apple and light oranges.

@ Zythos 2013. A hazy yellow colored beer, with thick foamy white head. The aroma of fruits with bitter, some spices. The taste of bitter fruits with tonsel. The aftertaste has fruits like apricot with tonsel some wood notes.

mike_77 (2963) - NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
ZBF Festival 2013 - Hand pulled from a cask. Hazy blond colour. Flavour is quite sweet and has some mandarin orange in with the brandy. Texture is sticky, finish is dry. Not as full flavoured as I would expect for a strong barrel aged beer. Bit of a let down.
