myrda (66) - - JUL 9, 2013
Ambrée légèrement voilé. Odeur d’ananas sucrés, cuits et acidulé. Le corps riche s’empare immédiatement du palais puis développent rapidement toutes ces saveurs d’un grand coup. Ce succèdent avec plus d’intensité à chaque gorgée des fruits exotiques, du poivre rose et des fleurs sauvages. En arrière-goût, un mélange habile de houblon et de cassonade, qui s’équilibrent de façon exceptionnelle.

Oily sweet trash water with some redeemable tartness and barrel character. The sweetness comes across like Splenda to me. Spoiled fruit and hot sour grains. Really messy oddity.

olio (6273) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Pours golden color with a small head. Stuffy and leathery aroma, some faint yeast and orange, faint herbal notes too. Fruity toffee flavor, some wood and spices with mild yeast notes and some sugar. Slight alcohol burn at the end. Decent, maybe a bit too boozy.

MrW (428) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
From tap in the Alibi Room. Aroma had overipe apple, a bit chemical, but got distracted by the huge smell of weed outside. Ap: Orange blond, no head when it reached the table, yet some lacing. Taste: sweeter than I expected, appel, pear, dry sweet finish.

Bottle@sbwf14. Golden. Yeasty esters, sort of popcorny buttery cream malty with a nice oak edge to it. Mixes real nice. Full bodied. Suprising dry finish. Oaky, interesting.
