Zekada (377) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma has some fruits, malts and is very sweet. Taste is just the same as the aroma. Palate is very drinkable and complex. Overall a really nice tasteful, sweet and complex beer.

Thanks to this beer I know that caramel and red dried fruits go well with barrel aging ! The beer got more dry and the alcohol is superbly hidden. The drinkability of this beer is perfect. I love it. Aromas are fruity, wine and wood. What an enlightenment.

Maakun (1189) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy Amber with good sized off white head. Spruce, white wine, caramel, sour grapes, lots of aromatic hops with citrus and pine. Medium sweet malty in the beginning going into light tart aromatic fruitiness and finishes medium dry bitter. Medium bodied with light creamy feel. Complex and extreme stuff, every sip is different. quite strange but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle shared 30/4/14. Dark amber/auburn, off white head fades slow. Sweet caramel, peach and soft orange citrus nose, some rich malt layers, light dried fruit, some soft berry notes. Medium full sweet, moderate rich malt, raisin, berry, orange, slight bitter, hop and tannic oak, medium spicy Belgo esters, touch of funk, dry finish. Interesting, but nothing outstanding.

Vignale (2380) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
Flaska från Magasin Köpenhamn. En komplex dryck med söta och syrliga smaker med viss fatkaraktär. Liknar mest ett sött vitt vin med viss träig beska och lätt syra. Mycket gula syrliga russin, marsipan, söta druvor, aningen lite träiga tanniner. Ett öl med djup och flera lager. Riktigt bgott.

MarcoDL (2608) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Ruby red, small white-ish head. Fruity and slightly sour aroma. Taste is quite diverse. It has some dark dubbel malt, a slight milky sourness and some nice warming fruitiness of the wine aging. Long finish with some vanilla. Original and very tasty.

Vaiz (3738) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy copper to reddish pour, thick off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, wine, some cellar, creamy, lactose and a bit earthy. Flavor is quite smooth, slightly bitter, some sweet, a hint of sourness and all very well balanced. Complex and unique brew.
