   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2014
Medium yellowish head over veiled, but bright orange beer, finely carbonated. Sharp, partly acidic, partly old wine-like aroma, fruity esters, with apricot, ripe banana, but hints at pickles too. Again the liquorice overdose from the Limousin (L.T.), again gradually diminishing, giving way to the fruitiness that, again, is very apricot liqueur-like. Sweetness enhanced by the alcohol, held in check by the sever woodiness. Very serious alcoholwarming, fiery, burning MF, carbonation more in the MF than with the other F.O. series tasted; slick to viscous. I’m still not really convinced by these three.

mcberko (6035) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light toasted oak, wood, light booze and a little caramel. Flavour is well-balanced, with toasted oak, booze, caramel and residual sugar. Again, this light version is more restrained on the sweetness. But it’s boozier than the Centre versions. Very good stuff.

GothGargoyle (1142) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Orange with a pale head. Aroma is candied orange, apricot, oak, brown sugar. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with some booze on the finish. Flavours are orange brandy, brown sugar, oak.

Ktwse (1907) - SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Pours cloudy orange amber with low frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, ripe mango and peach. Taste is heavy boozy fruity sweet, some burnt butter and butterscotch, some fruit, warming booze. Finish is lingering, lightly sour, alcohol warming. Body is rich and smooth with soft carbonation.

Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy pale amber with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dark dried fruit, citrus notes and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice barley.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Ronny (rlgk), split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Clear pale golden with off white spotting and edgework. Nose is boozey, honey, light spice, woody tones, bitter fruit, nail polish. Taste comprises caramel, light spice, sweet licks, dark stoned fruits, sugars, booze but not 19% worth. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the finish. Decent for the ABV but definately one to share and not one I’d be rushing back for.

jmgreenuk (4103) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a light straw with a thin very broken white head. The aroma is sweet sticky malt fruit. The flavour is s medium sweet light bitter with a huge rich oily sweet boozy alcoholic fruit palate. Full bodied with flat carbonation. It’s all about the alcohol for me. Don’t drink this in pints :-)
