3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 0.375l corked bottle from 2009 @ Top Hops Bottle Share (BA). Itís really loaded with sediments this, cloudy and golden/orange in color with not much of a head. The nose has lots of cellar notes, itís fruity and sweet, peaches, lots of apples and white sugar. The taste has again lots of cellar, wood, some sweet apples, green apple zest, woody vanilla hints and some stranger carrots and yeast things in the finish. Oh, not bad at all! 15.06.2013

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12.7 oz bottle into tulip glass.
Appeared - 2 inch head took a fair amount of time to settle. Color is a medium golden color. Appears to be a bit of yeast sediment
Aroma - is faint but getting some banana , clove, and some peach
Taste - starts off tasting like a hefe as the aroma would indicate. Settles into a bit of fruity sweetness with a crisp finish
Mourhfeel. - carb is a bit low might be due to the age. Its a bit creamy too which I like.
Overall - refreshing summer beer. The alcohol burn hits you a few seconds afterwards but besides that its pretty well hidden. Might pick this up again .

Tap at Kickbacks, Jacksonville. It pours hazy golden amber with a small white head. The nose is honey, sweet apple, pear, wheat, dough, light spice, golden syrup and stewed orange. The taste is oily, viscous, wheat, earthy, zesty orange, warming alcohol, spice, pear and melon with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium-full body, fine, prickly carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Decent stuff all-round..... yes itís too sweet, but still pretty tasty.

Hazy gold pour, thin head, alcohol tinged with citrus aroma. Medium bitterness, lighter bodied barleywine than expected. Strong beer, streamlined on the malts.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has an interesting banana and clove type flavor not normally found in barleywines. The wheat flavor seems to give it a fuller body. Has an alcoholic burn to it. Might taste better with time, but not a huge fan.

Amber pour with almost no head, some white lacing. Nice carbonation, nose is fruity / floral. Taste is ok, a bit muddled with lots of flavors bouncing around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Medium orange-gold with fine particles in suspension despite a careful pour, and a thick dense off-white head that shows amazing retention until the last sip of a long-enjoyed glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity with light woody elements. Sticky fruit sweetness, melon and over-ripe peach, nearly syrupy but not quite, light spice, very little hops, and a pleasing mild tartness in the finish that saves this from becoming cloying. Soft mouthfeel. A pleasant sipper.
