Bosskie (440) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
Opaque red brown beer with nice big head. Smell is dominated by citrics, more orange than lemon. Malty warmth, some leather and hints of honey. Rotten fruit. Taste fits very well with the smell. Bitter sour sweetness, dizzy and full. Citrics and warmth. Caramel nuttiness, with a touch of raisins. Delicious, and a very surprising taste. Oily, almost toffee drop at the end. Like an ipa which evolves in the mouth into an imperial stout.

Neorej80 (135) - - NOV 9, 2014
Nice sweet malty, and orangepeel hoppy aroma. Cloudy, dark yellow with tiny white head. Dry caramel butterscotch, rasins at the start. Bitter nutty hops after that and than balances out between those flavours in the aftertaste

Borresteijn (4857) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
33cl Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop. ABV is 5%. Iíve been searching all over the place during my holidays in Greece to no avail, to eventually find this in a night shop in Amsterdam. Slightly hazy deep orange colour, off-white head. Aroma of oranges, blood orange, citrus, caramel, sweet malts, sticky toffee, pine. Flavour is quite sweet, sticky, sticky toffee, pine, resin, citrus, orange, firm blood orange/grapefruit bitterness with pine and resin, malts, bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Itís tasty, but I found it hard to drink. More US Barley-Wine like. This would be a nice closer after a few beers or during a tasting.

Jur (359) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Clear orange, negligible head. Mild funky nose. Big sugar sweets up front, with hops making a late appearance. Too sugary, but good try.

adamnowek (189) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
Hazy and golden colour. Quite hoppy. Feels really rich. Good and strong but hidden well by the taste and aroma.
