Bov (9560) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2014
from Erzbierschof - pretty clear dark reddish beer with a little beige foam left; woody and light vinous; strong presence of cherries and hints of vanilla and red fruits marmalade; full-bodied, fairly bitter and with a decent sourness, long fruity and woody finish showing an increasing sourness - interesting and very pleasant

Davros (1960) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2014
Pours copper with a fading head. Nose shows some red wine notes, a funky wild yeast character, sweet malt, raspberries, gooseberries... Awesome stuff. A similar mix of flavours. Red wine, acidic wild yeast notes, sweet confectionery notes, caramel, chocolate. A bit cloying, needs more acidity. Nice moderately high carbonation.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, fruity yeasts and a touch of booze. Slight vineous characters as well, but well hidden in the background. Flavor is light sweet, malty caramel touches. Fairly ok, not really anything too exciting going on here..

JulienHuxley (3166) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at THT March edition. Looks nothing like the glass in the picture, I got more of a hazy amber pour with white head. Aroma is citrusy, nice hoppy aromas, orange zest, light winey notes. Taste is tart, zesty, nice citrusy flavor, not too sweet. Belgian profile is rather subdued. Palate is med body, with low carbonation. Nice.
