SimplySike (1180) - The Hague, - APR 14, 2013
75cl. Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma citrus, orange, grapefruit, caramel, alcohol. Taste Bitter, warming alcohol, sweets, bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel oily, creamy. Great beer, complex taste, did taste some rice but that could be in my head.

Draught at Mikkeller. Quite fruity, orange, grape, apple, honey, mildly boozy, long sweet finish. A bit of a disappointment as I love the style and expected much more wheat character, this one is quite syrupy and too sweet for me.

KasperResen (3) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Særdeles liflig aroma med en snert af surdejsbrød og udpræget citrus. Flot gylden farve (galdestensfarvet urin på den gode måde). Let og flygtig skumkrone med vedholdende gardiner. Sødmefuld bryg med velsmag af brændt sukker, syrlig citrus og en humlet tørhed. Træfadslagringen kan smages.

androman (976) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2015
75cl shared bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is hazy orange, head is small, white, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Nose is citric, fresh tropical fruity. Flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruits, honey, caramel, floral, lots of citrus. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, light citric sour. Finish is medium lasting hoppy medium to heavy bittersweet, long lasting medium citric sour, alcohol is totally hidden. Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, refreshing, very tasty, rather American double IPA, excellent brew.

Vells (1061) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
Not most intense barleywine, tho quite huge maltiness, caramel, lots of fruitiness, ripe fruits, overripe fruits, grapefruit, mango, bit pine, toffee. Quite sticky. From start seems it bit lacks in intensity of aroma and taste, tho after some time it rounds up in well balanced and highly enjoyable brew.
