Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear red-amber colour with an elusive beige foam; malt and hops in the nose; notes of red fruits and butterscotch; clean palate with some sweetness and a touch of acidity; chewy malts; short and quite dry flowery and fruity finish - I’m not really convinced

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2011
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, light perfumed fruit and yeast. The sweet flavour has notes of caramel, light fruit, spicy yeast and hints of chocolate. The body is quite full, and it’s easy to drink.

GT2 (9353) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
750mL fliptop courtesy of ryan. Poured a clear orange to amber with a small, white head leaving small, spotty lace. Nose is apple cider, non-oxidized red apples, overripe pear. Taste is all malty, soft, rich oatmeal malty with clover honey and very moderate spice. Chewy, starchy palate. Soft carbonation. Pretty much a textbook example of perfect malt extraction.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2012
bottle-conditioned 750ml. lightly-hazed chestnut brown body with a medium-sized sandy head. fruitcake nose of nuts / nut oils, wood, berries / jam / maraschino cherries / fruit / melanoidin malt. soft texture dark baked cracker malt with lightly musty / tart yeast. a slightly-dark sweet, woody, nutty, fruity, estery winter beer that I would peg for Belgian.

2009-12-05. Hazy red-brown body, modest beige head fades. 3+ Aroma is lightly fruity, dry malt, light yeast. Flavour is odd, light fruit, dry malt, malty base, odd tang in the finish. 6+ Okay. Bottle shared by swoopjones

Fin (8332) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle that I picked up at Carrefour, Citi Europe, Calais, 31-10-09 consumed 04-12-09 Pours clear amber with very thin white head. Initially this a little sweet in the mouth with the alcohol very evident and whilst warming its maybe a touch harsh. Some spiciness, bit of fruit seeped in alcohol, touch of caramel another fairly average beer to end a slightly disappointing beer week. A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov12 3.1
