BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Gator Bev. Pours cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Aroma of honey, Belgian yeastyness, I assume agave nectar, hint of vanilla. Not much bourbon here. Flavor is big sweet honey up front (agave nectar?), some yeasty esters, banana, pear, light spice, vanilla, and finishing with a big burn of bourbon booze. Very sweet. Medium plus bodied with medium carbonation. Not what I was expecting here. It’s no terrible, but don’t think I can get through the whole bottle alone. Like an insanely boozy saison.

ICEatALAMO (1305) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a light golden color with some haze. The aroma is light and citrus with some of the booziness coming through. The agave comes through with nice fruit tones. The barrel is very present. Different and interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
A frothy off white head quickly dissipates to clusters of large bubbles encompassing a clear vibrant amber body

Creamy, juicy sweet, tannin drenched pear, apple, and floral notes reminiscent of champagne with a rounding accent of agave syrup cut by moderate levels of smooth alcohol warmth on a coating, dense, medium plus body finishing with spicy, creamy barrel notes, solid flavor intensity, decent complexity, solid transitions, fairly approachable considering the strength

Risk of gushing

swesson (373) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at Parry's. Pours gold with a medium white, foamy head. Not much aroma at all. Tastes crisp and clean with a bit of hops and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BLADT (698) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2014

chinchill (4336) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Dark bottle with cork and wire served in a Belgian snifter. Both the aroma and the flavor are quite fruity. The lightly sweet flavor suggests golden raisins and ripe apricots, but has a good bit of tartness too. An unusual component in the taste may be the agave. Pronounced BBL influence on the aroma, with more moderate BBL effects on he flavor. Feel: Medium body and carbonation. Notable warming O: a fine, refreshing sipper.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
Hazy dark gold. Fine-bubbled beige head. Light fruity nose, mellow with a yeasty note. Hot and slick on the palate. Medium full. Taste is vinous-fruity and quite so oxidized. Yet inviting, with a note of malt drops, cob-web and dust. Alcoholic endnotes. [Shared bottle at larsga’s, 20.08.14]
