Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, beige head. Smells of honey, belgian yeast, malts and spices. Taste is almost heavy sweet, quite fruity, honey and some perfume. The perfume part makes the mouthfeel pretty bad actually. Medium biter finish. Not all that interesting really. For me this is just an overpriced beer that luckily ends up OK.

Bottle shared amongst friends for my "Massive Mikkeller" tasting. Aroma was a tad fruity with lingering hints of spice. Not really sure how I’d label this one because I was expecting a dark beer but this was pretty light and very drinkable. A very different beer and damn tasty and worth the hunt.

AndySnow (4934) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2012
Sample @ SBWF 12. Cloudy orange colour with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit, apple, citrus. Flavour is hard to describe. Tastes a lot like white wine. Very different beer taste. Yeasty, sweet grape, sweet white wine, sweet berries.

Bottle at the Anderson, Fortrose, cheers Jim! Very odd. Passion fruit adn mango enormous on the nose but with a long dry finish in the mouth. Very interesting mix of flavours though not really my thing. Bit of a desert beer

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Medium white head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Fruity toffee and resin aroma with earthy gooseberry and strawberry notes. Dry-sweet fruity earthy taste with medicinal caviar (without the fish) notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly astringent mouthfeel. Dryish sugary wooden aftertaste with earthy wine grape notes. Interesting, unusual, but also similar to other wine-cellared beers (except for the caviar). (0.375l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

(Bottle during RBWG) cloudy gold, soapy off white bubbles. Nose of marshmallow, sweet and caramel. Taste of caramel, honey, light hops, oily body.

37.5cl bottle BB 05/05/2016. Nice presentation, but ... but yet again, overpriced, remove the fancy-gimmick ’barrel aging’ and you have a very boring Belgian strong ale hiding behind. Meh. Orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est ici le seul aspect que j’ai vraiment apprécié de cette bière. Note de Sauterne qui présente un beau bouquet fruité et aromatique sur des notes d’agrumes très légères. Palais commence bien, mais au fur et à mesure montre des signes d’une bière belge à la banalité plus que flagrante. Le tout alterne notes douces avec ce côté vin blanc/boisé chêne et ce profile herbacé rappelant l’ortie qui est, somme tout, très agréable, mais malheureusement, cela se limite à ça. En fin de bouche et en faisant abstraction de ce vin blanc, on retrouve une bière belge banale, profile malté sur une once de douceur avec ce côté vieille levure et un palais restant épais voire légèrement poussiéreux.

kappldav123 (5512) - GERMANY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle looks a bit complex. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Dry aroma. Starts strong, fine malty with fruity notes of apple. Modest sourish. Quite dry. Bitter background. Finish a bit milder, less fruity, still dry with bitter background. Interesting. Thanks to yespr for that one!

Thanks to walt@rbwg2012. Hazy golden color with white head. Bready white bread, dusty pale malt, spicy aromas. Medium body. Lightly sweet palt malt flavors with grass, earthy hop--good
