Ibrew2or3 (7300) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Woodshed 2.0. Bottle share courtesy of cbkschubert. It pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma is full of sweet fruity esters like pears and apples covered with honey. Rather sweet and estery smelling and not much else. The taste is pretty rich but duplicates what is being picked up by the nose. I get a sweet mix of pears and apples and some sugary sweetness that leans toward honey. Toward the finish a bit of fruit tartness is noticed at the edge of the flavor experience.

Draught @ CBC13 Pours clear golden/orange with a small off white head. Powerful aromas of fresh mango, tropical fruits. Flavor is average sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a hint of alcohol burns at the end. Massive hot strong Ale!

Vignale (2365) - 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 (8281) - 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.

Sampled draught at CBC, blue session, Saturday afternoon May 4, 2013.
Clear golden color, white head. Malty, sweet scent, also Belgian sugars. Sweet, hoppy taste. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Some warming alcohol.
