Vignale (1978) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Fat på CBC 2013. Stor maffig humlearom. Men smaken känns väldigt obalanserad. Söt, syrlig, alkohol och märkligt nog lite tunn kropp för att bära all humle och alkohol.

mcberko (5923) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a golden with a medium beige head. Aroma of stone fruits and booze -- quite a mess. Flavour brings out loads of stone fruits (peaches especially), a big boozy quality, and turpentine. Not well refined at all, with a hugely boozy palate, and too much turpentine / paint thinner. Sorry Surly, but this one is a failure to me. Not good at all.
