ClubGonzo (4375) - Bergen, - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Meilby. Pours a hazy dark brown, red-hued body and a medium off-white head. Nose is raisins, almonds, passion fruit, yellow apples, honey melon, red berries and hints of licorice. Strange, but not unpleasant. Taste is candy sugars, raisins, faint cherry notes and something I can only describe as the glue we used to get in school to use on wood, leather and similar materials ("Skolelim"). Weird. This is one strange creation, but I don’t rule out that someone might seriously enjoy it peculiarities.

blankboy (6364) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
[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.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
[6953-20141204] 750mL bottle. Fruity plum malt aroma. Hazy, dark brown amber body with a long-lasting foamy tan head. Boozy plum wood fruit and toasted grains flavour with a long sweet aftertaste. Full body. Sweet, not too boozy. (7/4/8/4/16) 3.9
(c/o blankboy, w/ him, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jercraigs)
Overheard: "There’s no such thing as too much cheese, bacon, or garlic." (Harry wants this on a t-shirt)

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
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."

Bottle at home. Pours deep ruby brown, nose is tropical fruit, citrus, candi sugar, taste is juicy fruit, sweet, rich caramel. I’ve had this a bit too long but the fruit hasn’t quite faded yet.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
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.
