RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange in color with an off-white head. Notes of orange peel, vanilla (wood), dried fruits and little bit of balsamic notes in aroma. Malty sweet notes in taste at first, some dried fruits and bit of orange marmalade in taste. Sweet and boozy finish. Original in a way, but not something I would have on a regular basis.

Au nez c’est extremement puissant, c’est entre du vinaigre balsamique et de la liqueur avec un mélange d’herbes aromatiques et médicinales. En bouche le début est riche est mielleux et se termine sur du vinaigre d’orange. La fin n’est pas acide mais sucré. Magnifique breuvage qui rappel la Saint Bon chien de la brasserie des franches montagnes

Benzai (8962) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle @ home shared by Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Clear dark orange or light reddish color, medium to full off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, rich deep wood, red fruit, liquor. Taste malts, oranges come trough way stronger than I had expected, alcohol, again strongly wood, quite strongly liquor, quite sweet. A bit too much oranges and sweetness for my liking. Great aroma, but the taste does not really do it for me.

Bottle @ benzai with dutchdrebus. Red brown color with a small head. Smells sweet, fruity, wood, orange, peaches, stroop. Tastes sweet, plakkerig, jam, syrup, alcohol, wood, fruity, some herbs. Too sweet.

Smells grand marnier, wood, alcohol, oranges, sweet, rinse appelstroop, syruppy, jam. Tastes quite sweet, grand marnier, lots of wood, alcohol, apricot, orange, slightly cider. Full body, nice carbo and surprisingly enjoyable.

HoppyBudgie (757) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Ruby, dusty red. Thin head. Aroma of benzen, orange, vinegar. Taste of apricot, some funkyness, orange, alcoholic. Deels kinda unbalanced. The Grand marnier sweetness hits in the end. Interesting thou

elbernays (620) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours marmalade orange, white head disappears. Aroma has so much going on - orange liquor, orange rind, tobacco, cinnamon, nail polish remover, dry oak overwhelmed by a sour aroma. Then flavour is sweet orange liquor, syrup with a mild alcohol finish. The body is full and a dry oak finish. None of the chemical nose is in the flavour. This is an unusual beer and a bit outrageous.

ciaranc (973) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2014
500 ml bottle shared from Redmonds. Thanks elbernays. Mad nose, pithy orange, white wine, oak, and a band aid, chemical note. Flavour is better, sherry rich, cinnamon spice, candied orange. Lush mouthfeel, slick, no carbonation. Real dessert wine characteristics. Better than the sum of its parts.

SlackerMads (1701) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a minimal diminishing white head. Booze, paint thinner, oranges, pear, canned peaches, wood, red candy. Flavor more resembles a sour brown than a quadruple, taste as well with some light sour notes. Medium/full body, sticky syrupy texture, soft carbonation, medium/heavy sweet and light/medium sour with little bitterness. Not unpleasant, but I don’t get the idea and it bears little resemblance to a quadrupel. Don’t understand, don’t want.

MaartenRF10 (1614) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Eerst even een grand marnier gedronken als opwarmertje. Net iets troebel oranje rood van kleur. Aroma is ietwat zuur met sinaasappel. Smaak is zoetzuur, sinaasappel, beetje hout, alcohol. Apart en smakelijk.
