Beer4000 (4616) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2013
375 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orange body with a thin off-white head. Aroma has some pale malt, citric fruit, grapes, sweet Sauternes wine and herbs but is dominated by oak. Flavor is sweetish malt, some fruity/grape sourness, herbs, matured grape, lots of oak and some bitterness. Medium body and a long aftertaste with all the mention flavors, specially oak. Interesting beer, but feels a bit messy and unbalanced with this dominant oak flavor in combination with rather light and smooth flavors.

Pyrmir (3544) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Very hazy amber with good white head. Aroma of grain, malt, some yeast and floral hops, and moar grain. Taste is about the same, very grainy. I didn’t think yeast choice quite fitted here

# 3258 ersma: was für ein merkwürdiger name. wird aber auch nicht näher erklärt. gelagert in chateau d´yquem-fässern. gebraut bei de proefbrouwerij. bernsteinfarben, leicht trübe mit recht viel schaum, der sich stabil gibt. der geruch ist süßlich, leicht fruchtig mit etwas hefe und säuerlichkeit. der antrunk ist hefebetont und leicht säuerlich. dazu malzig mit kräuterigem einschlag. erinnert ein wenig an brett-hefe. das wird zur mitte noch etwas ausgeprägter, ebenso die malzigkeit. hopfenherbe und fruchtigkeit gesellen sich hinzu, sowie eine gewisse süße, die ich mal dem fass zuschreibe. der abgang ist hefig und fruchtig mit malzigem und herbem hintergrund. die verkorkte demi-bouteille hat ein schickes etikett, gemalt von margrethe odgaard. fazit: da ich mir chateau d´yquem bislang leider nicht leisten konnte, kann ich wenig dazu sagen, wie das aroma des fasses sich auf das bier auswirkt. ist ein süßwein, und es finden sich durchaus süßliche komponenten im bier, die ich so nicht kannte. aber mit den fässern hb ich auch schon geliebäugelt. leider kann ich mir weder den inhalt 300 euro für neue jahrgänge, 40.000 für den guten 1892er) noch die fässer (380 euro in barrique-größe) leisten. ach ja, das bier: spannend und etwas wild, aber probierenswert. 13,11,11,12,11,11 - 11,35 - 3/4

Aroma clean front, soft with semidry approach. Sadly it came with muted end. 6+
Appearance presentable , murky gold. Medium white top with some lace.3+
Flavor and Palate : Creamy in texture. Surprised by slight smoky hints. Carbonation dry. Play of dryness with soft body. Hint of smoke noted on top end as well. Enjoyable ale.

solidfunk (4491) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Awesome. Cloudy blonde. Some lacing and some lasting head. Nice florals and some booze in aroma, but wonderful balance. Some hints of berries and orange as well. Very nice. Had at Mikkeller tasting even at volos. Thanks to Radek.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours generous head and leaves artistic lacing. A world of aromas, earth, fruit, a little yeast. Soft carbonation makes for a smooth mouthfeel, akin to an expensive white wine. Tropical fruit and delicate. Interesting and complex beer, thanks for sharing Liam.
