DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from Adderscum Co-op. Clear bronze piled Belgianesquely with tufts of vanilla. Attractively mad yeasty aroma with clove, redcurrant and sausage suggestions. Slightly biting hop; smoked and berry undertones, spicy yeast, clove and apple peel. A bit overtaken by the yeast but enjoyably so.

Clear medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, barnyard - leather (brett). Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, brett, dry. IMO off but for me some nicebrett and dryness ;O) Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110319]

yngwie (16510) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, pale amber beer with a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is quite interesting but suits a Belgian beer better, with itís brett and tropical fruits. Some maltyness too, and a peppery hint. Itís dry on the palate, medium bodied and quite nicely carbonated. The flavor has pale malts as a backdrop for brett and citrus, as well as bitterness. Lasting bitter and bretted finish. I bet itís not intended like this, but itís quite nice anyway. Quenching and tasteful. 110319

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival í10. Orange amber. Rather delicious dusty, ashy malt aroma and taste like old sacks in a barn. The barn being somewhere in the depths of the English Midlands, quite a long way from the nearest road.
