Large bottle from Plumpjack. Brilliant appearance, clear deep copper with a lacy white head. The aroma is stellar, very complex. Light fruits, tropical, mango, papaya, tangerine, white grape, honey, some oak. Medium sweet, champagne like yet sweeter and maltier, complex flavor. Long finish. Medium plus bodied, slightly sticky, well carbonated. Really good!

Amber, hazy. Low lingering head. Aroma tart cherries, cork, white wine, vinegar. Palate medium, carbonation medium to low. Taste tropic fruit at first : lychee, mango, pineapple, giving way to intense dessert wine sweet and sour finish. My jaw dropped how good this actually is!

Keg at BD Bush, 09/05/16.
Very lightly hated orange amber with a well sized cream cap that retains well.
Nose is juicy Nelson hops, passionfruit, tangerine, orange pith, candied fruit peel, light yeast esters, bubblegum.
Taste comprises candied fruit peel, ripe melon, grassy, white grape, juicy Nelson licks, candyfloss, wheaten bread, light booze tunes.
Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with added boost.
Solid for style, subtle undertones ... not just a sweet booze bomb !

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gylden brun klar med høyt kremete beige skum. Lukter druer, fudge, røde bær, mot solbær. Frisk lukt. Smaken er fruktig, bæraktig i starten, sursyrlig smak utover, noe vinøs. Tørr avslutning.

Draft at Mikkeller and Friends in Reykjavik The ale poured a cloudy amber with an off white head and lacing. The aroma was complex with caramel malts, and grapes. The higher ABV provided a warming feeling that added to the experience. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish was dry with no bitterness. Nice ale!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, copper body with a small, off-white, fully lasting head. Complex and strong aroma of fruits, including slightly overripe peaches and mango, oak and hints of sourness. Strong flavour of grapefruit, peach and mango, with oak, caramel and funk in the back. Light sweet taste, light sourness and a quite biting bitterness. Medium body, very dry on the palate, lively carbonated. An unusual and complex brew! A fun mix of wild ale and IPA!

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.
