JulienHuxley (3283) - 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.

maneliquor (3156) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy red orange with a sticky white head. Nose is driven by loads of dried fruits, especially apricot, heavy cherry and plums with red wine tannins. Taste is sweet red wine notes - majorly plummy and stewed dark fruits, dried apricot, sticky sweet, slightly tarty. Works very good and comes together superbly. I like it a lot

hawthorne00 (2475) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber with a beige head. Spicy vinous aroma with nuts, sour oranges. Texture like watered down kefir, lowish carbonation. Sweet, sour, spicy, with overripe stone fruit, their stones, sour oranges, caramel, some bread. Modest bitterness but spicy and a bit tangy at the end. Lots of interesting things going on, but all a bit of a jumble really. Perhaps it will come together later. Didn’t like the slickness in something this full-bodied.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2014
Weird beer this (but it works). Peppery Belgian ale is the initial impression before a wave of sour funk comes crashing through. Aniseed, bitter, tang, almost Flemish save for the pepper. Really does work although it never quite hangs together.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Hazy copper pour with a foamy dirty white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, almonds, marzipan and citrus. Taste is pretty sweet and low in bitterness.

elbernays (548) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 7, 2014
Pours murky copper. White thin head with nice white lacing. Aroma is Strawberry bubblegum sweetness, bit of bread notes. Flavour is Strawberry, floral, citrus notes, biscuit. Light carbonation. Oily texture, really slick mouthful. Body is medium but alcohol is excellently integrated. Nice.
