BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Chard bottle (cap is same as the Saut version: 8071210). Pours with a murky deep orange hued body with a medium sized and somewhat quick to fade slightly tan, off-white head with good lace. Aromas are of funky, hay, lightly herbal, a touch medicinal, white wine, berries. Really herbal notes, strong rosemary, almost aperol or something like that. Funky, light cola. Good smelling, but herbal and spicy overall. Flavors are big, bretty, some cotton candy, damp leaves, wet wood. Rich and robust chardonnay. Wish this was a bit smaller ABV wise. Intense and you can taste how big it is. Estery, ripe plum and dried apricot. Medium funk with some herbaceous-ness. Medium lively carbonation, medium bodied and warming. Good but bigger than expected/wanted. Really gets a bit messier as it warms, but I didn’t ding it in the score.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
Bottle, 375ml. An unclear one, dark golden in color and with a small, light beige head on top. Lightly alcoholic aroma with a nice vinous touch. Some faint funky hints, with a pleasant hoppy scent. Grass and citrus. Vinous, hoppy flavor with some sourness. Some alcohol warmth, full body and quite dry on the palate. Lasting finish with pale malt notes, grassy, peppery hops, lemon peel and pine cones. The first two sips were rather boring or disappointing, but it turns out to be a really, really nice and quenching beer. 130420
