gyllenbock (4547) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, March 2012. Pours dark brown with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, grass and caramel. The taste was fruity and hoppy. Also notes of licorice. High bitterness. Medium mouth feel. The finish was long. Not bad.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2012
In short: A IIPA that tastes like a very resinous and sticky barley wine, very nice
How: Bottle 750ml. Exact age unknown but consumed
The look: Cloudy bronze body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose of hops resin, wood resin and toffee. Taste has a lot of wet wood, toffee, wood resin, forest floor, refreshing tropical fruits (pineapples mainly), sticky hops resin. Overall sensation is that of a very sticky resinous beer. There are some very contrasting flavors in this beer and that’s what I found interesting about it. If you’re looking for a typical American style Double IPA you will probably be disappointed but if you think of it as a resinous hoppy barley wine then you will find it a lot of fun. A pretty good beer but like it is the case with many Italian beers: nice bottle, nice label, high price-tag. At some point I may have to stop drinking those expensive Italian beers unless I catch a break, because right now I’m probably 0 for 600 in looking for safes behind paintings hung on walls.

daft@Chez Moeder Lambic: dark brown with a slight red hue, tanned head going to slight mocha, decent sweet base with strong malt presence, caramel with slight molasses, ripe dark fruits mixed with grapefruit hops, even stronger pine hops, bitter lemon peel, hint of lime, earthly hops, both sides are balanced in the taste but lovingly the hops dominate in the smell

Kristall-König (2207) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Anregend hopfenaromatischer Geruch, harzig-süß mit Einlagen von Maracuja. Antrunk hopfig zitrusartig und süßlich. Mitte weiterhin zitrushopfig, aber auch angenehm bitterwürzig mit leichten Malzaromen. Abgang bitteraromatisch, scharf und trocken, ja fast medizinisch und etwas alkoholbeeinflußt. Sehr gut - viel Charakter und vielschichtig. Bisher das beste Bier dieser Brauerei. Ich hoffe auf mehr.Test vom 21.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Cipressaia (53) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2011
Un po’ deludente rispetto alle attese, l’Amarillo si sente poco e non mi sembra che abbiano raggiunto un bell’equilibrio

deanso (5174) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2011
75cl bottle from Domus Birrae. Thin off white head. Amber pour, unusual for a DIPA. Lovely smooth bitterness. Great!

thirdeye11 (5536) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2011
(750ml bottle best by 8-2-11 thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy orange-brown with soapy tan edge bubbles. Nose of dark fruit, chalky, orange, grapefruit pulp, a bit funky and wet wood. Taste is dank, grapefruit, not bitter, orange juice, a bit spicy, and nice linger.
