Fin (7555) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Barry (neighbour and friend) Cheers Barry. Had this 23-03-08 Light golden pour with some haze, good carbonation with solid white head. Spicey nose, bit tangy and tart at times. Though pretty clear there was some yeast in suspension. Citrus starts to pulse through with a sweet lemonyness to it.

madquacker (1045) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2008
Egg coloured bottle. At least it won’t be light affected. Pale orange with a nice tight but modest head. Sparking citrus aroma. Tastes very warm and a little cloying. High alcohol content is well disguised.

jercraigs (7934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2008
2008-03-04. Bright yellow body with a foamy white head. Odd yeasty aroma, strange floral character, hints at sour, mild foot like funk. Flavour is much the same. Floral fruity character with an odd tangyness to it. Sort of like a triple gone askew? Brief pineapple or over ripe tropical fruit (6+) Average palate. Grows less weird as it warms and you wade through the glass but its just ok at its best.
Bottle at De Garre, Brugge

Embrouille (2829) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy yellow beer with a small white head. The nose is of orange, honey, yeast and spices. Yeasty fruity taste. Very sweet. Some coconut, oranges, peaches and hop showing up. Alcohol accompanied by cloves, coriander and a slight hint of cinnamon. Some rosemary and thyme? Nicely balanced. Too much alcohol though. Slightly nutty. Dissapointing finish with a hint of fennel.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Nose of spicy fruits, yeast, malt and hioney. Taste of melon, grapefruit dominate with hops and malts also. A very nice beer which compliments Delerium Tremens very well.
