Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Sampled at the Carolina Crew Gathering in Greenville. Great deep reddish color. Resinous hop aroma and flavor - pretty much the FFF trademark. Flavor also had plenty of malty sweetness to it. A bit hot, but smoothed out by the wheat malt. IMO, it needs at least 6 months to mellow out a bit. Thanks for sharing, David.

colui72 (420) - HONG KONG - NOV 5, 2015
Murky orange-amber, thin cream head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, some fruits. Taste is boozy, fruit first, peach and apricot, very malty but well balanced by the hops, honey and caramel. Full body, creamy, sweetish finish. A rich and complex ale.

Senka (964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle as pictured@OBE2015. Thank you Mart! Not a barley wine to my taste. Rather a perfect DIPA. Fruity, smooth, ABV is hidden. Drinkability is high with this one - you can finish the whole bottle by yourself. I would never guessed that this a wheat wine. Well done!

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2015
Sweet vinous aroma with a distinct touch of plum and citrus. The taste can be recognized in deep rich vinous character which also plum, grapes and melon included. Long warming aftertaste. Its wheat character I can not quite figure out, but it would not change that it anyway is extremely delicate.

750ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) - thanks martjoobolut!
Spicy zesty aroma. Lemony taste, like drinking floor cleaner. Very spicy tingly finish. Boozy. Quite aggressive. Not my style at all.

600ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by mjs - thanks!
Deep orange, no head. Sweet sherbetty aroma. Pleasant carbonation, but, at the same time, sweet and sticky. Slightly gingery taste. Tangy and hoppy. A touch of soap, but that doesn’t build up beyond its initial low prominence. Still sherbetty even after half an hour. As it warms and flattens, the aroma becomes more complex and interesting - very tangy and spicy. What a great sipping beer, enjoyed every drop.
