Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Massive thanks to Fonefan for this one. My beer of the tasting, even though there was a lot to choose from. Lots of hops on aroma. Lovely. Really really good. Like the Festival 2009 beer. Lovely. Hops are stunning. Would happily dirnk the whole 1.5 litre bottle to myself. Have I mentioned the hops????

brokensail (13673) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
The pour is orange in color with a white head. A strong citrus peel aroma, mostly candied orange. A mild spice note, some fruity esters such as pears and apples, and a hint of yeast. Quite a lot of candi sugar, brown sugar, and caramel, too. The flavor is decently sweet, but also has a hint of pine and citrus peel bitterness. Candied orange, brown sugar, and sweet caramel maltiness. Very mild ester notes and a hint of bread and yeast.

Koelschtrinker (13117) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Im Antrunk ist das Bier aromatisch hopfig, natürlich, vielfältig. Der Hopfen weitet sich aber sogar noch aus, dabei nimmt er an Herbe zu und ist so nicht mehr der alleinige Taktgeber. Weniger bitter, auch die Herbe ist im Vergleich zum Hopfen dann doch eher gering. Etwas fruchtig und grasig, zudem sind Honignoten erkennbar. Vollmundig hopfig, im Abgang verfliegt er aber merkwürdig schnell und hinterlässt keine bitteren oder herben Noten, das Bier ist minimal grasig. Ein durch und durch auf den Hopfen ausgelegtes Bier! 12/12/11/12//12
