10/V/14 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: IV/2014 (2014-497) Thanks to Bartlebier for the trade!

Cloudy rusty red brown beer, aery beige to yellow head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very hoppy, piny and resinous notes, bit aged though, strawberry jam, bit dusty, caramel, sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: citrus, bitter hops, syrupy, bit piny, caramel, exotic fruits, some strawberry jam, blueberries, pretty bitter. Aftertaste: bitter hops, fruity, forest fruit and red fruit jam. Would categorize this as a US barley wine, but what’s the difference really? Also, it seems as if my bottle was probably a bit old...

Aroma: intense citrus; Appearance: hazy orange, minimal head; Taste: heavy bitterness; light sourness; Palate: astringent finish, full body, thick texture, medium carbonation Terrific Dipa, it’s probably over 100 IBU. Price is the only drawback of this magnificent beer.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle@Home. Pretty malty and light hoppy aroma. Light hazy, yellow off-white head, good lace. Malty, passionfruit, hint of caramel, soft bitter start, finishing more - even harsh - bitter, lightly hopped. Medium body, light oily. Very easy going.

derA (8) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 17, 2013 does not count
Quickly vanishing yellowish head, amber opaque with lots of small bubbles. Ooddly flat nose, hints of citrus gras. Alcohol and bread smell is present behind wall of hops. Sharp, citrussy hop-laden aroma. Rather fizzy carbonation immediatly present on the tip of the tongue. Sadly not as floral as expected. Malty, full-mouthed middle complexity. And full-on complex hoppy aftertaste, retro-nasal lemongrass with hints of pineapple and caramel. Quite a joy to drink due to its changing flavor profile and long lasting astringent aftertaste.

MiP (13912) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle, 9%. Good, malty aroma, rather peppery, but in a good way. Cloudy dark amber colour. Good stable tan head. The flavour starts off nicely bitter, turns malty in a caramelly way. Some alcohol bitterness along with a clean hop bitterness. Warming alcohol. Good, also for the style.

Bamsen78 (3659) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you so much! Pours slightly hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear, sweetish aroma of malt and hops with notes of alcohol. Sweetish, malty onset, quickly giving way to bitter, hoppy body with a lingering aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence, though hard to distinguish from the hoppy bitterness. Decent.
