3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand bottled, provided by, and shared with clarkvv: Deep copper colored body with a small off-white head, slightly hazy. Aroma: bread dough, peaches, oranges, hint of spice, sweet sugar, caramel, bitter hops, with a bit of peppery alcohol coming through towards the end. Taste: sweet sugary malt & caramel up front, follwed by yeast, spicy/sweet citrus hops, orange, pear, with some light tart notes hidden amongst all the sweet malt and fruit. Slight hint of alcohol, but really not much for the 9.5% abv. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, syrupy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Hand bottle from growler by Clark VV on March 25th, leaked on the way to Jacob Lövenlund, sampled April 7th] An orange beer with no head. The aroma is very hoppy, but also with hints of alcohol. The flavor is slightly sour and very hoppy, and also contains alcohol, that gives the warmth and also prickles the tongue. I’d love to try this fresh. Thanks Clark for shipping this to Jacob.

Hand bottled from growler by Clark VV on 25/3-05 and send to Jacob Lövenlund. The bottle had leaked on the way to Denmark!
Dark amber colored with no head (probably because of the leaking bottle). Caramelly and fruity aroma with tones of spices and nut. Candied and rather sticky flavor. Notes of yeast and hop. Quite sharp and slightly oxidated. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet and fruity, candy-like malty aroma. Hazy tan-orange with a light cover of off-white head. Strong bitter orange and light spiciness to the clean malty body with fair bitterness and mild alcohol in the finish. Definite alcohol warming, medium body and fair carbonation. Tulip glass, just above fridge temp. Sampled from a growler that had been opened some hours earlier and then re-closed, so it may have lost something during that time-frame. With ClarkVV, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #32. Sampled in our motel room, joined by the locquacious and sagacious ClarkVV. Growler. Coppery-dark, little head..fruity, yeasty nose with hints of coriander...sweet, spicy orangy body, becomes quite sour late...doughy mouthfeel...not at its best, but pleasant enough and certainly leaves me wanting more, fresher samples.
