MunBro (808) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Yuck. Decent pour with a nice foam head. No lacing. Funky wine aroma with the most sediment I have ever seen in a beer. Worse than that one from the beer calendar. Has sour white wine notes and some off-hoppy flavours (not fresh) and unfortunately this got poured out after two sips.

suurjuust (1803) - ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2014
Hazy golden, medium white head. Fruity-malty nose, slight sweetness. Flavor is sweeter than the nose, esters, malt, slight spice and yeast. A middle of the road BSA, hides the alcohol fairly well. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing remarkable either.

espenra (925) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
33cl bottle. From the in-laws. Best before 2014-12-01. No brew-date or batch info. It poured an golden colour with a small white head. Lots of floaters in the glass. Aroma is very faint. Small notes of belgian yeast and caramel. Flavour is classic belgian yeast. Sweet malty notes with caramel, alcohol. Green apples. Some oranges as well perhaps. Medium long aftertaste. A decent beer, but nothing more.

gramity (1580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Poured a hazy orange/yellow amber with floaties, it also had a bubbly white head. The aroma was citrus and alcohol. Sweet citrus flavor with lots of alcohol taste.
