MaartenRF10 (1639) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Draft @ BBF’12
Hazy amber, light beige head. More like an IPA Saison hybrid if you ask me. Only some very distant Barley Wine notes like vanilla and bourbon. Barnyard, hop and some funkiness are more clearly present. Medium dry.

ClubGonzo (4370) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Slightly hazy golden orange body, medium white head. Nose is fresh floral hops, honey, lemongrass, hints of heather and citric peel. Original. Taste is bitter grassy tones with melon, straw, resin and hints of lemongrass and grapefruit. Long bitter finish, mellow and pleasant in the mouth. Nice hoppy beer but not quite the kind of BW that tickles my pickle to the max, after all.
