NikkTwist (1631) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Oct 2013. Draft at Monks. Hazy orange gold with a large frothy white head. Somewhat off-putting sweet grassy flavor. Moldy apples and peaches. Sour caramel corn. Not working for me at all. UPDATE: Having an aged bottle at Eulogy in March 2014. Big improvement! Lots of carbonation and a large white head. Refined green apple and blood orange flavors. Lemongrass. Rose hips. Honeycomb. Slight peppery finish. The funkyness that put me off last year is still present but now feels less pronounced and more properly balanced. My rating just leaped up from a 2.6 to a 3.9. A quick check of other reviews seems to confirm that the draft sucks and the bottle rules!

Holmen1 (2485) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
Fra fat på Delirium Cafe (kjelleretg.), den hyggelige bartender serverte denne sammen med et glass vann, siden den skulle være annerledes enn foregående (Saison de Mai): det var den også, men desverre ikke i riktig retning. En annerledes blomsteraktighet i smaken. Interessant, og bør prøves under mer nøytrale forhold.

Lilja (1640) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2013
Drucken på flaska på Brekeriet Bar i Djurslöv. Speciell smakupplevelser. Doft och smak av engelsk konfektyr (läs Bassets), sötlaktris och rosenblad. Lätt kropp med en örtig och gräsig beska med harsyra toner.

Vignale (2064) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2013
Drucken på flaska på Brekeriet bra i Djurslöv. Aningen avslagen, ingen kolsyra eller skum. Söt doft av engelsk konfekt, rosenblad möter sötlakrits, lätt parfymerad. Kryddig, anis, lakritsrot, harsyra, liten örtig beska som balanserar sötman. Trevlig och udda.

SperkeleForce (550) - FINLAND - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle 75 CL. Pours hazy orange with small white lacing head. Notes of grass, berries, small sour, stale soda drink, some fruits. Seeing this being from Belgium I expected more.
