The body was dark copper and ruby with a khaki head. The aroma was massive almonds with some obvious grapefruit. Awesomely fruity smells. The taste was grapefruit and toast with some woodiness. A little bit of peaches comes through behind that. A nice and interesting brew that I thought was more like an American Strong Ale than a barley wine.

22oz bomber. Clear orange with a 1/2 yellowish white head, fair retention. Fruity lemon, orange, apricot and pineapple hops up front with a fair amount of caramel. Flavor has the distinctive 3F piney grassy hop profile, with peach, apricot, and pineapple rearing their heads. Still fairly hoppy, though I’m told that it has already fallen out a bit. Bitterness peaked at a 3 in the dry finish, with alcohol helping dry it out but not burning. Full body with low carbonation. Pretty good beer.

This was a real nice beer. Aroma had a little citrus hops too it but mostly a lot of camelized sugars and some dark fruit flavors. A little alcohol was noticable. Flavor was very tasty also. I could definitely feel the 10.5% in this one but it was not too overpowering. Finishes not too sticky and not to dry.

Bomber courtesy of cmr1517. Pours a clear dark amber with 3 finger cream head and spotty lacing. Nose is malt, dark fruits, hops and alcohol. Taste is caramel malts, plums and brown sugar with a grapefruit and resin bitter finish that lingers for a while. Medium body. Hides the alcohol pretty well but it’s a definitely a warmer as you drink it. Good beer Chris – thanks for sending it!

Pours dark copper with a ruby hue. Significant chill haze and an inch-plus head of off-white. The foam receded within a few minutes revealing a placid surface and zero lacework. Aromatics lead off with plenty of grapefruit, delicous apples, spruce juice, and tangerine zest. A touch of lemon oil pulls through as well as cherry pulp and Grand Marnier. Medium bodied and slick. Low carbonation and a heavy grainbill lends a syrupy quality. A nice combo of malt and wheat lead off the pallet. Slightly tart under the sweet caramel malt, with plenty of resinous hops and citrus fruit follow through. Spicy and warming. The alcohol builds and adds some cinnamon to the mix. Bitterness is firm and smooth, which helps offset some off the honey-like residuals. Finishes with a mix of earthy pine, grapefruit zest, and alcohol. The hops in this one has mellowed quite a bit from the draught example I had at the Extreme Beer Fest, but the beer has become more rounded as well.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2008
Pint on bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Thin, patch-like head resting on a crystal clear mahogany body. Strong and inviting aroma of dark wheat and tart fruits. Comprehensive hoppy taste with pine, spices and caramel malts leading to a nice ending of hop bitterness. Full bodied and great mouthfeel. (Shared with Arild and Finn Arvid, 02.06.2008)

Golden-amber colour. Big toasty hop nose with caramel, peach...complex...grapey and with some alcohol. Really toasty and woody on the palate, with a light fruitiness and a woody hop finish. Clean and flavourful, and yet another wheat wine that sits distinctive from the others.
