Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF ’Raise the Roof’ Tasting ’10. Hazy yellow with a small and fluffy white head. Creamy sweet on the nose; yeast, wheat, lemon and orange aromas. Quite creamy again on the tongue, notes of vanilla, banana and Belgian esters. Really lovely mouthfeel, light to medium body, soft though quite dry on the palate with low to medium carbonation. Not much of the 10% makes it onto the tongue but there’s definite body at the same time as being light and ’drinkable’.

Bottle at chriso’s pre- GBBF ’Raise the Roof’ Shindig ’10. Bottle dated 2005, numbered ’195 - limited edition’. Hazy pale gold with a white head. Spicy bubbly aroma. Sweet, vinous alcoholic taste. Very delicious, like champagne. Happy New Year (despite the fact it’s July).

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 17, 2009
Kerstbierfestival 2007 Fruchtiger, deutlich alkoholischer Amtrunk, hefig, der Alkohol stört. Im Mittelteil aromatisch nach Getreide und Frucht, die hier erscheinende Hopfigkeit wird im Agang würziger. Das Bier an sich wird sauer, alles ohne überladen zu sein, was es auf den ersten Blick zu sein scheint. Malzig, etwas ruppig.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Richmond Summer Gathering. 2005 vintage, #125, corked, capped and plastic-dipped big honkin’ magnum bottle courtesy of The_Beer_God. Hazy lemon with a huge white head. Yeasy and fruity nose, a bit funky, sweet malt. Bready flavors, yeasty and a little funky. Dry, dry dry finish. Excellent foamy white lace rings. Seemed to improve and become a bit more complex as it warmed. Nice! This was the bottle I kept nipping off...
