thewolf (11369) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle, bought @Etre Gourmet. Pours murky dark yellow with some floaties. Small, creamy white film head. Aroma has sweet malts, apples, grass, oranges, oak. Low carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, fresh grass, oak dryness, quite vinious. Sweet, but the oak and the alcohol balances it okay.

mutz (684) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Goudkleurig, fijne kraag die inzakt tot een mooi laagje op het bier. Ruikt zoetzuur, fruitig, mout. Smaak is zoet .....eh zoet en weinig meer. Ruikt complexer dan hij smaakt. Niet slecht maar oppervlakkig.

TET (1960) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
A cloudy, slightly brown, yellow beer with a medium and blond head. The aroma is rich of fruits, quite sweet, some meat, barrel and plums. Interesting aroma. Taste is mix of dark and "light" fruits, oak barrel, strenght of alcohol without taste, hint of spices. Quite sweet. Full bodied, slippery, low carbonation. There are good elements but maybe the overall impression is slightly messy. Difficult to rate.

bierkoning (10877) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle. Golden color, cloudy. Hints of peach and yeast in the aroma. Malty sweet alcoholic flavor with hints of yeast and vennel, lots of dried orange. Unrefined but decent.
