UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 On tap at Haand Festival. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body under a small, off-white head. It’s vinous on the nose, with sugar, fruityness, some peaches and alcohol. Quite sweet on the palate, full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, slightly warming towards the end. The flavor has a nice bitterness, peaches and a generic fruityness and feels quite vinous. Warming, fruity finish. Maybe too sweet this one, or a tad too alcoholic, but I like the vinous touch. Nice. Rating: 7-3-7-4-15-3.6. 130525

On tap at Schouskjelleren, as Tangerine Heated Rear Evil Edition Barrel Aged. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body and a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is boozy and vinous, with oak, oranges, some malts and a decent hop profile. It’s sweet and lighlty sourish on the palate, warming, full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish with oranges, oak and a vinous touch. A tad sweet this one, but sure pleasant. 140501

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Pours copper, off white head (cask?) Smell is very big whisky. Malt and red fruit. Taste is like a watered down scotch or irish whisky. Red fruit Medium body, very big burn on the end. I am pretty sure this was aged in whisky barrels and not just oak. Nice

Lowenbrau (2411) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 5, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 750ml bottle @Cimmeria. On tap @Struise, courtesy of Urbain. Liquor, fruity, liquorice aromas. Pours hazy golden with avergae white head, some lacing. Medium body, average to soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is wood, liquor, liquorice, fruity. Quite enjoyable.

maekchu (2505) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle. Sampling at Lefty’s place. Yeast and subtle barrel notes. Copper-amber color, and a one-finger creamy head. Smooth rich barrel initial, with dark sugar and vanilla / sweet fruit gathers intensity throughout mid and final. Medium-heavy body, Very good, but the sweetness dominates a bit too much (for me). Not exactly cloying, but too much.

Hypo_Luxa (58) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
Poured amber. Soft belgian yeast. Mild bourbon smell. Honey spice, Jelly jam, delayed boozy burn is the only indicator of it being 10%. Very soft on the palate. The carbonation gives a great mouth feel. Light bourbon flavor allows all the other flavors to open up.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2673) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. A dark red amber pour with a thick off-white head. A strong bourbon aroma with belgian yeast fruity notes. Bourbon/whiskey & vanilla notes. This is a barrel-aged beer all the way. Technically competent and a good example of what barrel aging can do.
