Leighton (14431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Thanks to Kenny! Pours clear gold with a white foam cap. The nose has ripe lemon, alcohol, acetone, peach. Big sweet flavor with light tropical fruits, peach, pale wood, bread, booze. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Hot finish with simple white bread, melon, citrus peel. Hearty. A decent alcohol delivery mechanism.

Vestergaard (958) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
2nd bottle at the Fermentoren Aarhus French oak tasting. Slightly darker than the limousine light toasted, but with the same head. Aroma is more jammy, less dry. Orange, apples, less hoppy. More tannins though, still some honey, but more caramel, but a more fruity tartness as well. Sweet and tart dominance. Plums. I liked this one better than the limousine.

I could not do a decent write up of all these separately, so I will do one and ahre it on each beer’s page. The differences between the light and medium toast version of each were so subtle that I don’t think I’d know they were different beers if I wasn’t being told so. Limo - super sweet, low level diabetes, yet really really doesn’t show the heat. Centre has just a bit more wood (and is that a hop?) that cuts through the sweetness a little more than the other two, making it my favorite ever so slightly. Troncais was back to diabetes sweet, yet all still enjoyable. These are after dinner sippers for sure, but glad to have tried them. I’ll admit I was hoping for bigger differences side by side.
