PorterPounder (5540) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark orange pour, medium thick off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is that of sweet kid’s cereal with some floral accents. Flavor has some apricot-like fruitiness, some overripe fruit, some weird funkiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not a highlight of the evening.

My bottle is called Alive not "USAlive" Big malty nose with a good hint of brett. Mahogany with a 3 finger white foamy head, falls down to half a finger. Big malts on the taste that open up to a hop bitterness. The brett pops in near the end for a brief moment. Finishes like a double ipa. I think the brett needs time to do something here. Good besides.

alkolas510 (627) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2013
Brunrödfärgad med nästan inget skum alls! lite kolsyra och doft av dessertvin! I smaken är det dessertvin och humle blandat med malt! Bäst före 3/2-15

Theydon_Bois (8652) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle (beer interloper) split at JF’s cheese & wine tasting, 22/12/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a big ole off white head. Nose is candied sugars, caramel, bubblegum, yeast esters, figgy jam, dark fruit, spice. Taste comprises caramelised sugars, floral notes, bubblegum, punchy hops, candyfloss, apricot jam, sublte brett presence, candied orange peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry hoppy closure. Nice work!

Jimthechap (1648) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 15, 2013
A bit of an odd blighter this one as by look it seems Belgian but by aroma and flavour was deeply American NW. Slightly hazy mellow orange colour with a fulsome cream coloured head, this was lively in the glass - courtesy of its yeasty origin. Aromas of stonefruit, faintly resinous, mainly herbal. Plenty of lively mouthfeel and great oily dabs of hoppy fruitiness, accompanied by elegant sweet white-peachy nectarine flavours. Sat on the palate for ages because of the gentle bitterness. Remarkable beer and an interesting crossover.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a hazy copper on tap with thin cap of off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and candied sugar, with a funky yeasty middle, and a tart medicinal ending. Taste follows, with a dry finish. Solid beer.

k0mpsa (1139) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at mikkeller and friends. Dark amber color, white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma, malty also. Taste is hoppy belgian sweet, nice combination. Body is balanced and taste is good, some yeast.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
Très beau nez, très éxotique (mangue, passion, litchi) avec du pamplemousse également. L’entrée en bouche est encore exotique mais ce beau fruité ne dure pas assez à mon goût, la fin de bouche est sur le caramel, la céréale, avec des notes florales et épicées aussi. Belle longueur en bouche et bonne amertume cependant.

Homer321 (1886) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Draft. Strong hoppy nose. Huge off white head. Flavor is a sweet malt honey like flavor with a hop juice presence. Slightly tart. In a refreshing way. Not too sour. Not too shabby.

Pours cloudy caramel color with tan head. Rustic and bretty aromas. Lightly tart brett flavor with musty and rustic notes. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Good stuff!
