JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2011
Thick-set yellow-cream head, slowly collapsing with beautiful lace over fully hazy, but bright foxy-orange beer. Bitter oranges, Curaçao and slighlty mouldy orangepeel; mushrooms in orangesauce. Rich nose, hinting at depth. Again bitter Curaçaopeel dominance, with meaty, fleshy overtones. Though a bit unidimensional, very rewarding and vinous. Rich, thick, creamy, yet refreshing; long fruity aftertaste. As in the "other" single hop series, the Sorachi Ace shines. I remain convinced it is THE hop Barley Wines, Old or Christmas ales crave for.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Pours a cloudy and almost opaque amber with a small creamy white head leaving a discreet lacework. Distinct coconutty Sorachi Ace in the nose. Medium-bodied, fairly sweet fruit and a little caramel. Heavy on the tropical fruit accents. Discreet bitterness. Excellent - especially for a Sorachi Ace lover like me! 041111

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a great beer.
