At Chriso’s pre GBBF Shindig ’09. Amber with a large white head. Floral hops in the aroma, with some pine. Sweet mandarin and malt balance the grapefruit bitterness. My final beer of the gathering, and a worthy conclusion.

Hansen (6206) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2009
Thanks to Torben. Amber and faint unclear. Has an off-white head. Aroma has lots of hops, citrus, passion-fruit, grape. Flavor starts light sweet and heavy bitter. Finish is harsh bitter, nice. Dry texture. Soft carbonation.

TBone (11916) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Draught@Pikkulintu. Amber, a bit hazy color. Small white head, lace. Fruity, bretta-yeast nose, some apricot too. Sour, citrusy, hoppy flavor. Long bitter aftertaste. Good brew.

swoopjones (5333) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Bottle. Shared with Rudolf & IPFreely. Pours a light caramel pour. Mildly hopped aroma. Mild Orval like earthiness. Kind of like Orval’s uglier sister. Big bitter finish after the earthy yeastiness up front. Very drinkable but lacking a bit in flavor

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2009 Draught (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - sip
Big bold new-world hop aroma, citrus and grapefruit, perhaps a little over-the-top. Palate’s pure battery acid. A beer with no balance, and no details at all. This is to beer what John Lennon’s guitar sitting on top of the monitors producing feedback once he left the stage was to music. I.e. it isn’t. Even a couple of sips was too much, it’s just painful to drink.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
(on bottle) A very yeaty and earthy aroma, along wing a whim of hops gone moldy and old. The brew is pretty perky and keeps it that way all through the drink. I really don´t get much more than mold and heavy yeast in this beer, sipping along for a long while, hoping for more complexity. It´dosen´t apear and I walk away,a bit disapointed.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2009
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2009. Hazy orange brown color, fine off-white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, citrus and some brettanomyces. Følavor is floral hops, malt, some fruit and some brett.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2009
(DC Local Gathering, 750ml bottle, Thanks Argo0) - Dark hazed amber, fizzy white head. Bold juicy herbal tangerine and floral nose rides wafts of sweet spruce perfume. Bitter citric-pine flavors balance very well on a foundation of Belgian candi sugared fuzzy fruit. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. This certainly screams U.S. without a doubt. Mikeller rarely does me wrong, and this one was no exception…

anders37 (15545) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2009
Draft @ Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty floral hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. Dry fruity slightly tart malty hoppy bitter flavor with hints of citrus. Hasa dry fruity finish with a long hoppy aftertaste.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2009
750ml bottle from the Binny’s in Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a hazy amber body with a tall rocky head that clumped the sides of the glass with lace as it slowly collapsed. It had a caramel corn sweetness to the aroma topped with floral and citrus scents with just a light dab of Brett. The flavor barely displays the malt, a bit of underlying sweetness, and is more about a citrus peel bitterness with touches of pine resin. The finish is dry and leaves the mouth feeling as if one had just finished chomping on an orange peel. Pretty decent.
