Leighton (10424) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a tight, white cream head. Lightly funky aroma with soft white wine notes. Medium sweet flavor with moderate alcohol presence, light wood, mellow citrus. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sticky to finish with light, dry wood. Pretty good balance here for the fairly high ABV.

PhillyCraft (3071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Draught at the Borefts 2012. Hair of the Dog and Struise collab? Fuck yeah. Went after this guy early in the event due to its stellar parents. Pour was a slightly clearish orange with massive white head/lace. Aromas of dried fruit, wood, fresh hops, whiskey, vanilla, earth, and spice. Taste is toast, citrus fuel, grass, dark fruit, and spicy wood. Medium bodied, with a creamy smooth close and aftertaste. What a beer.
