MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
tap at max’s. Hazy tan-amber, thinnest white ring. Nose is Brett b heavy, lots of cherry, but brown sugar, iron, and light balsamic keep it balanced. Flavor shows more grain and iron at the front, mid has light tea, chestnut, and finishes with paper and more Brett b. Bit full for the fizzy carbonation and soft flavor profile, but balanced and so bright as a result.

Bottle shared during RBWG on the Booze Bus. Thanks! Gold pour with a small white head. Pretty oxidized nose. Signs of age include paper, cardboard, knackered honeyed grains. Taste has some mellow marmalade. A touch soupy. abrupt finish. Diminished, but not entirely unappealing.

kerenmk (3235) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks avrashi. Murky amber, with ring. Honey, orange, ginger and candy aroma, along with a little rye, sweet, then black pepper, honey, a little anise taste. Full body, a little anise aftertaste and spicy finish. Whimsical and tasty.

Pours a clear copper with a frothy white head. Farmhouse hop aroma and the taste is sweet and then sour and bitter with orange peel hints.

Ysok02 (369) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse peu persitante. Nez assez complexe sur le caramel, les épices, les fruits confits, une touche de gingembre. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, beaucoup de rondeur, un coté douceureux et caramélisé et une finale ample. Une bière puissante et complexe, qui pourrait évoluer.

green old bottle .. .dust, yeast, and pharmacy .. . light feel and a squeaky finish, the 2002 vintage shows quite a bit .. . . a scone is just a really sad doughnut.

chinchill (2988) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2015
A 2002(!) bottling. Perhaps past its prime but certainly held up very well. Rich complex aroma and flavor with figs, raisins and spices. The flavors are nicely balanced and blended.
