Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, copper colour. Minimal, white head. Orangey, gingery hop. Some ripe peach in there. Very fruity. Orange peel. There’s some wit character, but this feels IPA territory, more than anything. Taste is fruity bitter. Light sweet. Light dry. Feels under 8%. Finishes fresh, hoppy bitter.

kerenmk (2918) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Hazy amber with white head. Hoppy, soap, rosemary aroma, a little sweet, vanilla-scented soap and hops in the mouth. Smooth, relatively light-bodied, greenish finish.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy amber brown with a medium off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite some bitterness with some sweet fruity tones. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, spices and herbs. A nice bitter brew.

DSG (7488) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Cloudy orange-amber with an off-white head. Soapy aroma with stale hops and a bit of spiciness. Sweetish flavor with malt, soapy yeasty spiciness, stlae hops and some bitterness and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Not my thing.

JulienHuxley (3807) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle at Kerstbierfest 2014. Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma of peppery and leafy hop, light sprucy notes, nice honey. Taste is sweet with leafy hop bitterness, light fruitiness, relatively light (compared to the other beers today probably) Belgian IPA style, not bad.

SinH4 (564) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Orange color with a hint of amber and a medium head. Aroma is caramely, but also spicy and hoppy. Taste is spicy and bitter, the orange peel is also there. Good finish and nice carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel. A very good one!

A delicious head scratcher. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange amber pink. Persistent thin white head. Tastes of tart berry, orange, super dry hoppy finish. Accent on the hops. The witbier aspects just add depth and spicy complexity. Not sure what to make it, but it’s delightful.
