Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle, thanks to oh6gdx (Patrik) for sharing. Hazy copper amber, bright and with lots of lacing. Aroma is burly, rusty, with lots of fruit skins, minerals, earthy hops. Smells like a barleywine with a lot of heat that heads straight through the nasal passages and into the brain. High carbonation but nice juicy palate. Lovely flavors, same rich roasty-like burnt tasting beer is nice and tastes better than it smells. Hits the char pocket. Is deceptively smooth. Lovely flavors, and ends up seeming smooth and balanced.

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Golden colour with particles floating around. Mediumsized foamy head. Aroma is hops, some grass and some herbal notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same along with some sweet malts and mild yeasty notes. Pleasantly balanced. Big grassy aftertaste.

daniele (6523) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2009
ambrata buona schiuma piuttosto persitente note di luppoli agrumati leggero acidio un po di frutta in bocca molto beverina rispetto ai gradoi alcolici piuttosto bilanciata anche se l’amaro molto piacevole si fa ben notare

diabel (1630) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle Hazy orange body with a nice lightly yellow, creamy body. Aroma of yeast, honey, aroma hops, citrus, banana, orange, pepper, grapes, spices, ... Very complex (of spices) and well balanced aroma, but a bit subtle and not very attractive. Heavily bitter, modeately sweet flavour. Balance is very nice. Drinks easily. Dry, hoppy mouthfeel. Moderately bodied, never would have guessed it is 12% ABV, more like 8-9% (although it has a tiny bit of alcoholic mouthfeel, but never in terms of 12%).

Bottle. Pours thick orange with a big creamy head. Smells of citrusy hops. Thick taste of butter and citrus hops.

hirigalzkar (2551) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle. Ar: Hoppy with a belgian touch (yeast). Ap: Hazy amber. Fla: Hoppy (american), buttery and fruity. Bitterness in aftertaste. The alcohol is very well hidden. Ov: Nice hoppy beer, a little thin in some way, it’s almost too easy to drink.
