3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Weird, weird beer. Sweet and fruity, but a little bit funky and tart with a surprising lightness of body (almost a fluffiness). Pretty good, I guess.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a murky copper-brown with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and a bit sugary sweet along with caramel malt and a hint of spices. Flavour is yeasty, malty, fruity and sugary. Alcohol is relatively well hidden. Average to medium boided. Quads aren’t really my thing but this is a pretty good version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-12-04. Hazy brown body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is fairly alcoholic, rich sweet malt with light caramel, and toasty malt notes. 7+
Flavour has rich sweet malty core, fruity and alcoholic. Tropical character of the fruit doesn’t really come out until it warms up. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just a touch boozier than my preference - though the alcohol is relatively restrained considering the abv - but a pretty solid take on the style. Bottle shared by Blankboy.
Overheard: "There were TWO penis related hubbubs!"
"Yeah.... Disney’s full of cocks."

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kihoskh shared with esp0r, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014. Cloudy brown body with a thick tanned head. Aroma of apple pie, caramel, mango, belgian yeast, alcohol, wood. Taste is lightly sweet, plum, tropical hops, burned malt, anise, metallic hints, banana. Quite a lot going on here, the finish adds a hoppy fruit character and alcoholic burn, grand marnier character is there but very subtle. A nice beer, though maybe a bit over the top.
