GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
Botella de 750ml. Copa Borgoña. Precioso color anaranjado y apariencia nublada. La espuma marfileño amarillenta y cremosa forma una capa sólida, firme y persistente; al tiempo que dibuja anillos de encaje en las paredes. Perfil aromático soberbio con trazos de naranja, toffee, maltas Crystal, ciruelas y albaricoques maduros, matices herbales de alcaravea y un sutil tono resinoso por detrás. Entrada afrutada, malteada y cremosa que precede a un amargor cítrico que recuerda los zumos de naranja y mandarina. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Textura viscosa y paladar reseco. En el intermedio afloran sabores resinosos y de pomelo; sin embargo, el final es dulce con leve amargor. Retrogusto de frutas maduras y resinas. El ABV se percibe como una sensación cálida, de agradable y delicado azucarado. Una deliciosa y gran cerveza!!!!! 750ml bottle. Bourgogne Wine glass. Cute & orangish color & cloudy appearance. Yellowish off-white creamy foam forms a thick, sticky & lasting crown as well as draws lacing rings on sides. Superb aroma profile: hints of orange, toffee, crystal malt, ripe plum, ripe apricot, herbal hues –caraway- & subtle resinous back. Fruity, malty & creamy upfront. Citric bitterness –orange & tangerine juice notes- follows. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & dried palate. Slight resinous & grapefruit flavors in the middle. Sweet/slight bitter finish. Ripe fruit & resins on the aftertaste. ABV is shown as a kind, delicious sugary & warm sensation. A BIG ONE!!

erickok (3793) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 5, 2013
Rich hop aroma, grapefruit, floral and a great hop mix. Sharp hop taste, rich taste, warming. Orange body, small soapy head. Stunning brew, complex and powerful. At only one coin, was perhaps my festival favourite. (ZeeBra)

dEnk (4032) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is huge fruity hops, and I mean huge, some nelson, some caramel malt. Flavour is an extremely fruity hop bonanza, very clean and long lasting with a medium bitterness. Awesome! But a BW??

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours amber/orange with a thick off white head. Smells of hops, flowers, and orange peel. Tastes of hops, malts, and light bitter. Medium/low carbonation and nice finish.

One of the best barleywine style that I have ever tasted. Girlfriend, father in law and mother-in-law says that we can repeat this experience. Delicious.

Urinal bricks and liquor like sweetness on the nose. Nice body! Liquor like sweetness, spruce needles, ear wax, cardboard, mango and pineapple on the taste.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 18, 2013
Cloudy golden liquid with a big white head. Rice actually appears in the nose, alongside with alcohol and caramelmalts. Taste is alot less hoppy than it’s brother hvedegoop, and the beer feels alot thicker aswell. Fruity and hoppy still, with alot of sweetness.
