Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle at GBBF 2009, 4th August 09. Hazy orange amber. Wonderful aroma of lychee and mandarin oranges. Similar sharp citrus flavours and a sensible weight with the strength exceptionally well hidden. Very impressive.

BoBoChamp (5443) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2009
38cl, new exclusive Italian brew Anno 2009, with new wood, from The Cracked Kettle Amsterdam, complex bitter brew, yet heavy, not balanced, hazy, good head, nice brew, yet expensive

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2009
Cloudy golden with a small off-white head. Vineous hop aroma, with a little oak. Dry and hoppy flavour with noticable tannins and a lasting drying bitterness. Honestly I had a hard time picking up noticable differences in a side-by-side-by-side-by-side.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy orange with a medium, frothy head. Exotic-fruity aroma with Nelson Sauvin clearly present, also floweriness and Belgian notes. Flavor is exotic-fruity with some pine-woody, citrusy notes (from the barrel?), and a touch of Belgian yeast. Not much bitterness, but lots of aromatic hops. Some astringent, woody notes in the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol well hidden. Pleasant, aromatic, exotic-fruity, not too sharp, I like.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle @ GBBF: Aromas of sticky feet, dry mango and sweet nectarine. In the mouth you are attacked by a crazy sweet/sour mango/banana which subsides to (including but not strictly limited to) pineapple, garbage juice, creamy stilton and vanilla yoghurt. A weird brew. Not sickening but vaguely unpleasant.

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2009
Corked bottle. Orange blonde, hazy. Pineapple, melon, lychee, wood and lime in the aroma. Alcoholic flavor with lots of wood, lime, melon and lychee. Malty. The beer reamains (too) alcoholic, but the wood and the layers of fruit improve the complexity of this beer.

Miksu (4948) - Jyvšskylš, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Bottled. Hazy amber color. Pungent grapefruity hop aroma. Bitter and grapefruity flavor with white wine, mustard and yeast. Bitter, mentholy yeasty and woody finish. Better than the base but this still too pungent and yeasty. There is certainly a woody mouthfeel but the aroma and flavor is very hop-forward.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2009
A Mes rate: Bottle at GBBF.
Clean gold with an excellent white head. Totally unique and REALLY tasty. The Nelson Sauvin comes through much more then the Reference version. There is that strange potato chip not again but itís great. I know thatís not what it is but itís what my mind is connecting it to. Whatever it works really well. Excellent dryness and drinkability. Amazing wheat, corn, meat and Nelson Sauvin finish. WTF? Corn and meat??? In a good way? Honestly. Love it. Incredible Nelson Sauvin amonia and lychee and tropical aftertaste. Again totally unique. Top job Alex.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle@Home. Very fruity and looks OK. I donít know what exactly it was but this is not my beer. Was it the overwhelming fruit combined with wood? The sharp and present alcohol? Maybe itís just that Blond Aleís donít go with barrel ageing. Drain pour! BTW, Imperial IPA???
