4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Cask, Clerkenwell on 29 Dec 2012. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of toffee, spruce and gluey esters. Full flavours; tinned fruit, malt and some citrus hop character. Finish was not too boozy, considering, some grain and grassy hop resin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Walk on Water pours a hazy bronze orange with a bubble beige head that lingers a fair while and is easily agitated. The aroma is alcohol, fresh biscuits, citrus and pine. The flavor is citrus up front with biscuits immediately after and then alcohol rides out in the aftertaste. Overall this is a decent beer. For the price it’s more of a novelty for the craft of the beer than the outcome.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ummm..couldn’t finish this beer. Wasn’t actually bad, just too much. I think it’s kind of arrogant to classify this as an "American Strong Ale" when it’s made in Denmark. That aside, this beer is a chore. Aroma was like a wheat wine. Strong caramel and cereal. Pour was a beautiful cloudy thick light gold with lots of floating sediment! Taste was just over the top sweet. Sweet caramel, sugar and alcohol burn. Thick mouth feel. Slight toffee came out as it warmed. Drank this before bed and had to dump it. Mild carbonation but better than most of this style.

Bottle in celebration of the birth of one of my best mates daughter, Tabitha. Cloudy, honey gold with a quickly dissipating off white head. Wonderful aromas of honey, peaches, nectarines, apricot, cereal, grain, caramel jersey lollies and a big whack of rummy booze. A sweet beginning of honey and stone fruit, leading into a long, dry, boozy finish. The alcohol perhaps drowns out the flavours. Love the interplay between sweet and dry though.

Bottle from tasting at home. Pours bright orange with white head. Nose of alcohol, citrus, hay, florals and herbal. Finishes very boozy with lots of fresh citrus. Lighter body.

Tap at G-Town Paradiso. Awesome concept. Unfiltered golden orange. A beast. I’d call it a wheat wine, but it doesn’t have that malty rich insanity. Like an APA, if you added grain alcohol. Just a monster of a beer, in shiny smooth clothes. Mead tendencies. Champagne yeast? Boozy all the way, but a cool experience. Well done, but brutal.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow pour, white head. This is pretty boozy up front, some cereal grain, slight hops. Nothing special here but not offensive either.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours apple juice yellow with a small white head. Notes of caramel, honey, citrusy hops. Surprisingly light on the mouthfeel for the amount of alcohol in it. When it warms up it gets more Belgian tasting, though with the alcohol presence of something cheap and eastern European. Kind of surprised I liked it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma biscuit, booze, oak, fruit, citrus, pine and spices. Taste is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium, texture is syrupy, carbonation is soft+. Finish is very long, bitter and warming. Goes down real easy until temperature goes up.
