ineedbeer (1565) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Poured from a 2014 bottle. Aroma is nice with a moderate plum note and a bit of citrus and tropical fruit. Some light oak notes and a touch of an herbal funk. Pours a somewhat hazy, pale golden orange with a small, thin white head that recedes and lingers. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some sweetness to it. Moderate plum notes with quite a bit of apple as well. Some light tropical fruit and citrus. Light oak notes and a touch of herbal character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with lots of plum and red apple notes. Light funk and oak. The apple character overwhelms the plum though.

Nocturne (1594) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
375ml bottle. Slight hazy orange/golden shade. Thin white head. Aroma is quite light with notes of wild yeast effects and jammy, stewed fruitiness, honey and earthy notes. Similar taste although not as complex. The sourness is quite mild. Very interesting as always.

Thanks to JulienHuxley for bringing this back! Pours a clear golden with a white foam that quickly settles into a rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of plums, oak, slightly off vegetal notes and funk. Taste is moderately tart, fruity, perfumey. Oak again and some citric acid. Body is medium, carbonation soft and mouthfeel slightly juicy/vinous. Overall I thought it was good (except for the nose) but it was certainly the least interesting of this serie.

Minderbinder (3145) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle 750ml. Thx to MC and Huxxy. Pours golden with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of cardboard, ashtray, fruits, flowers, herbs. Taste is of fruits, acid, cardboard, candi sugar, plums. Palate: Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Good. Nose is a bit weird at first. Could this be oxydized?
