suprchunk (2581) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Pours an amber hue underneath a creamy, off-white head. Plenty of lacing left behind as the tight head fades away slowly. Smells of sugar, alcohol, and a very slight banana scent. Slight. Sweet, clovey taste. There is some of the banana in there as well. Kind of like a muted banana cream pie with a tinge of alcohol. Very unexpected and quite good. Thick and velvety mouth feel. Very nice beer. I wasn’t expecting much with the awfully printed label. Seriously, I could do better with crayons. But it is a very good beer.

Garrold (2496) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from House of Trembling Madness drinks shop, York. Once I’d finally contained the beer to a glass, it was cloudy amber coloured, with lots of bits, and a massive, John Merrick sized head. Under that there is a cider lolly sweet and sourness. Some black cherry. Some spice. Taste is baked apple sweet, followed by the black cherry, tangy dryness. Loads going off. I need another...

Vignale (2493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. En riktig skumkanon. Förlorade minst halva flaskan. Brunorange vätska med jästpartiklar och högt smutsvitt skum som blldar gardiner och lock. Sötsyrlig doft med karamell, vinäger, röda bär och vildjäst. Sötsyrlig karamellig smak men en hel del jästsmak som är trevlig, tranbär, rosevin och lite ekfat. Osäker på om flaskan var okej. Hade i så fall kategoriserat den som en wild ale eller Oud Bruin. Riktigt god i alla fall. Synd bara att så mycket försvann.

Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light caramel nose and flavor is dark fruit and sweet spice. Higher ABV is hidden. $5.99 for a 330ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.

minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Mild sour character with ripe fruits, lemon zest and some tripel-esque yeast. I’m not the biggest sour fan but this is smooth and drinkable.

Brandman (2355) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2011
Golden body, white head. Nicely balanced as so many other struises. Very malty and caramelly. Some mellow citrussy hop aromas. Too sweet for me.

MadRobin (2341) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 29, 2012
On tap 5 oz. sample at Pizza Paradiso in DuPont Circle, Washington, DC. Lightly hazy, golden straw color with small white head and no lacing. Aroma of berry fruit, apple, yeast and caramel. Taste of light citric hops, hay, spice and caramel with a mildly astringent finish. Medium body and low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
