Buongiorgio00 (917) - - DEC 22, 2014
Birra stratosferica che non è una ipa già da un po’, ma si irrobustisce e raffina con le note allo stesso tempo calde, leggermente speziate e acidulo-acetiche del sauternes, che con la sua impronta passita coglie il fiore di questa birra facendolo sbocciare in bocca. Estasi.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Mild hopfiger Antrunk, der sich zum Mittelteil allerdings steigert. Grasig, milde Gewürznoten, auch diese werden mit der Zeit stärker, bleiben aber immer im Hintergrund. Feinperlig, die Noten der Fasslagerung sind sehr dezent. Schwächelnd hopfiger Nachgeschmack, in dem die Gewürznoten so besser hervorkommen. Nettes, nicht spektakuläres Bier. 9/9/9/9/10/9

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear orange amber with a medium/large frothy white head. Sweet fruits, marmalade, ginger, zest, apricot, honey, peach. Sauternes notes are very present, makes for a great soft slow drinking beer. Medium body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation. Good stuff.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Very odd aroma, sweet buttery bourbon note, some wood and mild fruits. Sweet taste also, caramel, some wood and mild butter. The butter(scotch) notes are a bit disturbing here.

lusikka (6572) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Pours a copper amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of butter, wort, pear juice and some mild spicy notes. Flavour of mild citrusy tartness, wort, oak, butterscotch, wet grass and wet bready notes. Very mild ginger notes appear after the beer warms up a bit. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Weird beer. Not enjoyable at all.
