Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 5, 2009
From Koelschtrinker via trade. Poured a hazy, not quite cloudy amber color with a thin white to off-white head. Flecks of lacing. The aroma is lots of sweet malt over yeast and fruity citrus notes. The flavor is a nice combination of the fruit and the yeast with some pepper and a welcome surge of warming alcohol on the finish. Almost medium bodied. Enjoyable.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2009
33cL bottle. Pours a murky copper color, capped with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel, alcohol, and pine. Caramel and grapefruit hit the palate first and are then joined by peach and fruity notes. Earthy hops build toward the finish and hop resins cling to the palate for a lengthy finish. Nice beer.

Bottle. [thank you, harrisoni]
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a medium, fine, creamy, yellow-white head. Lovely fruity aroma, lots of grapefruity hops, biscuit malts, light liqourice, yeast, caramel, oranges. Medium carbonation, lovely oily and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is actually relatively mild. Lots of hops, grassy, piney and fruity. Crisp, biscuity malts, light caramel. Long, lingering, bitter, hoppy finish with some yeast and pepper. Very nice, the alcohol is well-hidden, but still a little dull, actually.

Bov (11155) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2009
courtesy of Greg Gaughan - pours a cloudy amber-brown colour under a huge beige foam; aroma of caramel, pear and dust; full-bodied and quite sweet, rounded mouthfeel, very long caramelish and almondy aftertaste with light nozes of warming alcohol (which remains very well hidden considering its alcohol strength)
