snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - OCT 2, 2012
On tap @Borefts fest 2012. Pours with immense foaming head. Aroma is very sour and tart which is strange. Some spicy notes reveal as well. Taste is wonderful, very complex and distinct. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2012
Tap @ BBF 12. Pour hazy copper, with a large white head. Aroma is of slight lemon peel, herbs, slight caramel, lemongrass. Feels like something is a bit off. The taste is pretty bitter, and rather spiced. (?) Average body, with a slightly fizzy carbonation. ... Not my cop of tea.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A dense, two-finger, off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. The aroma has some typical Belgian ale notes, with white sugar and fruityness, but it’s the piney and resiny hops that do most of the work. The flavor has a nice bitterness stretching out for quite a while, as well as sugary sweetness, pine cones and resins. Full body, a bit low on carbonation. Not a very impressive one, but sure drinkable and tasteful. 120511

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
Tap@BBF2012. Amberkleurig met witte kop. Smaak is lichtzoet met hout, hooi, sinaasappel, vanille, caramel en vooral ook bourbon. Eindigt een beetje bitter. Gezien de namen vd makers had ik iets meer verwacht. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (16053) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Weird aroma of straw, wood, booze, and floral hops. Surprisingly, somewhat bland. A little vanilla and citrus, some sweet caramel as well. The flavor is sweet and boozy with some wood, hints of vanilla, floral hops, and grass. A fair amount of caramel and toffee malt, but overshadowed by the other flavors.
