brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle. Looks pretty nice. Clear golden/amber color, some white, fluffy foam that disappears rather quickly. Smells sweet and some alcohol. Stretching my imagination a bit, I might have noticed some sour apple (yeah, right). Smooth on the palate. Flavors are malty sweetness and a little bit bitter in the end. Regrettably, also some less enjoyable alcohol flavor. Overall, a decent beer.

yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. (Notes says Motueka hops) Itís an unclear, golden-orange beer with a beige finger-thick size. The aroma is a bit sugary, with peach notes, fruit syrup and some peppery, spiced notes. Itís dry and well carbonated, with sweetness and a nice peppery touch. Peaches and bitterness too, finishing sweet, fruity and bitter. A bit on the sweet side I think, but tasteful anyway. 120511

Holy (834) - GERMANY - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle from the school house. I liked the first Westoek and this just builds on the idea - more flavors and more complexity. Nice.

@ACBF 2011. Nice hops throughout the aroma and sip. I like this one better than the first!

Iím not gonna write any pretentious tasting notes about this beer. It looks good, it smells good and it tastes good. Thatís a good beer in my book.

OleR (4609) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2012
Sample from tap @Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Near-clear orangey golden. Tiny blond top. Grassy, maybe leafy hop aroma. A whiff of grainy/bready malts. Fairly sweet-tasting. Yellow fruits. Doghy and grainy malts, light spice tones and noticable fruity bitterness. Soft mouthfeel. Dryish, lightly spiced ending. Drinks ok withouth standing out.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Hazy golden with a large white head. Sweet with toffee, malt, citrus, hay and light spices. Nothing to write home about.
Earlier Rating: 5/15/2012 Total Score: 3.4
On tap at CBC 2012. Hazy dark golden with a small head. Sweet aroma and taste with quite a lot of hops, malt, light spices and herbs. An interesting beer given the amount of hops.
