bursprak (1161) - Aarhus, - JUN 15, 2014
33 cl bottle split two ways. Hazy golden pour with a frothy off white head. Nose is lemon peel and some grapefruit. Loads of lemon, lemon peel and light grapefruit. Very sweet. As is warms up the bourbon notes shines through. Warm alcohol finish. Weird but good nevertheless.

Vaiz (3740) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, no head. Aroma is fruity, vanilla, alcohol, lime, tangerine and some bourbon. Flavor is a strange balance between sour lime juice, bourbon vanilla, spicy hops, slightly bitter and fruitness. Miraculously well balanced. Quite unique brew.

shoulderbroken (2570) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is lemon, bourbon, booze, quite sharp, some boozy fruit too. Taste is good. Initial lemon and some boozy sweetness and then the barrel comes in at the end. Bit of sourness and warmth from the booze. I like it, but maybe not as much as I had hoped I would.

chrisv10 (12130) - DENMARK - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle, 10.2%. Hazy golden with tiny white head. Aroma is malt, limoncello , hop, fruit and fruit peel. Flavour is malt, fruit, hop, fruit peel, medium bitter, little sweet, little sour?, warming with notes of alcohol.

Vestergaard (828) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a medium sized clear, light amber with a small white head. Aroma has fresh citrussy hops, sweeter bourbon and vanilla. Slight boozy. Some hints of chocolate. Taste has lots of lemon and lime, bourbon, vanilla, oaky dryness, hoppy bitter end, sweet and sour citrus fruits. Really fruity and somewhat successful.

Rasmus40 (12876) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle from Mikkeller Web Shop. Hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, heavy lemon, wood and moderate hoppy - citrus. Flavor is quite sweet, light sour and rather bitter. Sweet, light sour and rather bitter finish with some alcohol. Oily. Strange beer, but then again I wasn’t a fan of the base beer. 020215

ElManana (929) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle bought at De Koninck. Pours golden almost orange, no head. Funky smell, honey, herbs, lemon, little chemical candy. Taste is little sour, lemon, boy this is some experimental stuff.

erickok (4126) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 20, 2015
This is an odd one. Golden body and small head. Sourish, salty, fermenting fruit, honey. Hop water, sour, herbal, mead like. Strange one but very original. Barrel aging wouldn’t have been necessary, but I still find this intriguing. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

omhper (20669) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2015
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Cloudy amber, small head.Bourbon and lemon zest. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Simplistic juicy whiskey sour flavour. Some grapefruit peels bitterness and tingling alcohol. Kind of refreshing, but disturbingly shallow and cool. Skillfully composed perhaps, but lacking soul and taking beer a direction I don’t admire.

Beersiveknown (3715) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle at home from small bar, Bristol
Slightly hazy honeyed gold, no head. Honey and lemon on nose. Fruity and citric. Acidic lemon balanced by caramel and vanilla. No carbonation, easy drinking, warming, tart pithy finish
