mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. Orange in colour, slightly hazy. Aroma is packed with hops - pine and citrus all backed with malt and some caramel and just a hint of alcohol in the back. In taste the beer is malty sweet, hoppy flavours mix together and on the finish we have some alcohol. Alcohol is not massive but could be better hidden. Strong bitterness, tohugh the beer is massive on the palate it’s quite dry. Soft carbonation and oily texture completes the really great "barley-rice" wine. Very nice stuff!

Barley wine? Vraiment? Bière très orangée et trouble pouvant appartenir à autant de styles qu’il existe de palais pour la déguster. Avant toute chose, je dois préciser que j’ai dégusté cette bière en accompagnement d’un pâté à la viande agrémenté d’un ketchup aux fruits fait maison. Houblonnée à fond, la bière persiste dans le temps suite à un vieillissement de 6 mois en cellier. Puissants arômes d’ananas et de fruit de la passion, cette bière sent le sucre à plein nez. En effet, dès la première gorgée, je sens ce sucre liquide et sirupeux gagner mes papilles. Cela n’est pas déplaisant mais surpuissant. Le liquide est à la fois liquoreux et effervescent, fruité... C’est prodigieusement délicieux mais lourd. Le ketchup aux fruits représentait en tout point l’alter-égo solide de cette explosion liquide de fruits sucrés. Le pairing est délicieux! Trop ronde en bouche à mon humble avis, cette bière puissante est lourde et présente une houblonnage digne d’une IIPA, la profondeur d’un barley wine et la rondeur d’une quadrupel! À ne pas prendre à la légère!

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell. Picked it up a long time ago. Hazy orange, small white head. Aroma is orange, pine, flowers. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is pine, rosewater, flowery, dry, some alcohol showing up, light grassy bitterness. Pretty good. Similar to Boogoop really.

Merci à Ben pour la dégustation! La robe orangée et la mousse épaisse annonce le style. Le nez est doucement malté et solidement fruité. Des effluves d’alcool et des fleurs. Une touche surette? Les saveurs sont fidèles aux arômes. Des fruits citriques et des pêches. Un solide houblonnage qui m’apporte ailleurs que sur le territoire des fruits. Une touche que je n’arrive pas à saisir : est-ce la présence du riz? Une bouche costaude et légèrement collante qui révèle de bonnes bulles. Une finale chaude et assez amère pour rendre le tout assez digeste. Intéressante, il va sans dire.

neongolden (1111) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
(750ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 9 2015) Pours hazy medium orange with small dense off white head. Aroma sweet, caramel, corn syrup, cantaloupe, peach, citrus, musty hoppy character. On the palate, sweet light caramel, candy syrup, cantaloupe, citrus and peach echoing the nose, a light bitterness building to moderate levels by the finish. Very light touches of alcohol. Medium full body with average carbonation. Pretty nice stuff actually, I don’t know if I love the malt base but the juicy hop profile is tasty. More like a DIPA, not really any barley wine character, that’s just fine though.

Pinball (11809) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Orange no heads boozy but b7ce fruity aroma flavor is boozy sweet powdery flowery smooth great boozy aftertaste ( clear yellow smooth offwhite head.malty aroma, quite sweet, reasonably straight bw aroma, somewhat hopped, but not overly us agressively Flavor is malty, alc is well hidden, very decent barley wine with just enough balance from us hops to keep it interesting, it could be said to taste a bit like a malt-forward double-ipa. not sure if i can sense any rice in aroma or flavor. All in all a good barley wine from mikkeller, and very good considering the quite high abv.
