Pinball (10908) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
bottle at home. pours a hazy dark yellow to orange, with a small offwhite to white head. aroma is booze, liqeuir, woody notes, dried fruits, yellow fruits, faint toffee. A very pleasant aroma, although a bit stingy from the alc. flavor is boozy, fruity, malty, faint citrus, not so much of a woody note directly, but it lingers in the finer nuances, all the rest taste a little bit woody. alc. is strong on this one, taste resembles booze more than beer. good sipper

JorisPPattyn (8018) - 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 (6887) - 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.
