Batavi (306) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
Fles 75 cl. gekocht bij firmabier.nl, gedeeld, en uitgeschonken in 33 cl. Struise glazen. Troebel oranjekleurig bier met, zeker voor een Barley Wine, een hoge en luchtige, crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s lijken erg op een Imperial IPA. Fruitige hoptonen van grapefruit, mango, lychee, gedroogde abrikozen, karamel en pijnboom. Smaakpallet is bitter en zoet, mooi in balans. Tonen van tropisch fruit en citrusfruit met name mango, lychee, perzik, mandarijn en limoen, aangevuld met zoete tonen van karamel, toffee, en gedroogde abrikozen. De afdronk is droog en hopbitter. Een erg smaakvolle Barley Wine, met veel kenmerken van een double IPA. 3e bier uit deze serie, die ik proef na de Majsgoop en de Boogoop. Deze versie is zeker net zo goed, met slechts subtiele smaakverschillen, lijkt iets lichter van smaak, waarschijnlijk door het gebruik van rijst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good stuff. Surprisingly hoppy and citric in the beginning but followed up by a sweet, boozy barley wine sensation. Surprisingly good.

CaptainTilven (109) - Nancy, FRANCE - NOV 27, 2015
Tasted at la Capsule (Nancy - France). Golden amber body headed by a not lasting white foam; sparkling in the beginning. Aroma of grapefruit and exotic fruit : lychee and dried mango. Begins quite smoothly, but quickly dry, resinous, astringent, grounded by nuts and sweet orange. Splendid balance.

angel77 (2110) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2015
Botella 75 cl tomada en el momento en llamas. 31..10..2015. Fcpref 14..11..2017. (r224). Color marrón claro con bastante espuma beige que desaparece al poco casi por completo. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados azucarados con toques de maderas y gran sensación de licor. Cuerpo medio a intenso fino y ligeramente espumoso. 10.4 vol que se notan en todo momento. Amargo seco final prolongado. Bastante buena, compejos aromas y sabores intensos en todo momento. Para repetir sin duda.

Murky orange with thin white head. Aroma is fruit and hops. Tastes fantastic like the best IPA: peach, mango, apricot, malts and lots of hops. O dear... what a fantastic treat!

Bottle, BBE 17/06/19. Appearance- light orange, with a two-finger fluffy off-white head. Aroma- orange, tangerine, creamy malt, sugary fruit, marmalade, piney hops. Taste- orange peel, hint of fruitcake, sweet sultanas and raisin, a bit of booze towards the finish, glacé cherries, creamy malt undertones, oily and slightly sticky mouthfeel, orange sponge pudding with golden syrup. Very tasty stuff, almost imperial IPA-like.
