thewolf (11176) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours light hazy amber with a small, creamy off-white head. Aroma has lots of pear, alcohol, caramel and raisins. Low carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, malty, apples and pear. Perhaps the alcohol is just a tad too sharp and it may be a bit too sweet. Still, it is a very nice drink :o)

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Draught. [Beer festival 2009] Yet again a fantastic experience with an aroma that was quite amazing in my humble opinion. Spare white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Cloudy brown glowing color. Aroma was heavy sweet calvados, wood, nutty, vinous, bread, raisins, dates, warming alcoholic, mild toasted malty and caramel like notes. Very full bodied with a soft carbonation and thick heavy texture with some alcoholic feel in there as well. Heavy sweet flavor with mild counter bitterness. Lingering vinous fruity and wood like finish. Top dollar.

Dedollewaitor (13902) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
Tap at KBH Festival, 2009. Unclear amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Strong, sweet, smooth, malty, oak, caramel, orange, acetone, warmth and hops. A big one - and nice one!

CBF09. From tap. Pours hazy orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy and caramelish. Sweet to sugarish flavoured with a distinct bitterness coming through. Light spiced, fruity and solid sweet to acidic flavoured. Very elegant and smooth, all though a bit on the sweet side. Slight warming finish.
