Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 6 Aug 2008) Copper colour with brief, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with citrus, coriander and a sourish wheat character. Fruity, citric taste with notes of herbs, spices, citrus peel and a decent hoppy bitterness in the finish. A bit weird, but fairly decent.

Skinnyviking (6733) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2008
Cask. Low fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear golden body. Stron sweet pear aroma. Coriander, oranges, vlove flavor. Heavily spiced and yet sweet. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste. Nice surprise.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2008
Cask@GBBF2008. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is wheat and coriander with a slight touch of alcohol. Flavour is coriander, nectar, vanilla and wood along with mild spices. Aroma is quite Hoegaardenish, but flavour... no...

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2008
Cask gravity from GBBF 08. Hazy gold, thin white head. Nice hoppy/spicy beer. Lots of tea, not really a replica of Hoegaarden. Lemon/lime/herb. Pretty bad.

SaintMatty (5078) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
Cask (GBBF 2008) - Golden in colour. Slightly spicy aroma with grapefruit and ginger. Mildly hoppy with grapefruit and ginger featuring again. A nice ginger kick in the finish.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with hoppy an citric notes. Flavor is very hoppy with sweetness, citric and piney notes. Ends with solid bitterness.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2008
Cask (Wenlock Arms, London)
Hazy amber, tiny head. Slightly peachy aroma, some hops too, and a little funky, and a touch of spice. Huge peachy taste - spicy too - and with a decent malty body. Well balanced, hoppy and peachy finish.

johninmelb (1123) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2008
Very nice nose of zesty lemongrass and ginger. Pours cloudy with a persistant head and tons of lace. Flavour is a little unexpected - very, very dry an underpinned with some very bitter hops; mainly, though, it’s the citrus, herbs and spice coming through that dominate this beer. You need about three or four good swills to see where it’s coming from, but once you have it rewards the effort.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. (Thanks Glen and the Banbury guys for the pint!) Pale gold, white head. Pungent apricot and ginger aroma. Spicy ginger and juniper berry flavor, dry ginger exhale. The most gin-like beer I’ve encountered. Interesting experiment, and rather good.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Pale gold, clear with white head. Lovely aroma of ginger and apricot leading to a spicy, dry beer, touches of tangy orange, citrusy, warming. Really well done in my opinion.
