Holy (833) - 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!

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Yeasty citrus, spice and grape aromas. Murky pumpkin color, fine tan head. Taste is a much darker mix than the scent: candied dark fruit, boozey brown sugar, and a touch of salt. Thick, fluffy and filling. Too heavy to be a tripel, too sweet to be a sour. Nice, kind of unique ale.

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Another 33cl Belgian bottle that’s been hanging around in my stash so long I’ve forgotten where it came from: Lot 22/17/11, BBD Aug 2016. The label claims it was imported into the US via San Fransisco, so God knows how it ended up within my stash in good old Shropshire. Poured carefully into a La Chouffe tulip on 16th Nov 2013. Hazy dark amber/dirty old gold, on top a full but swiftly falling off-white head. Alcohol laden fruit aroma, with yeast and malts in the mix. The taste followed the same lines, fruity, alcoholic and malty with a yeast underbelly. Plums, raisins and toffee apple type flavours vie with the yeastiness and alcohol to assert themselves. Plenty going on in the mouth, interesting and engaging, difficult to pigeon hole the true flavours, but I’d have another, and another, and another just to try and find some sort of ending to my tasting dilemma.

VsXsV (2271) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Hazy deep amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, bread, lemon peel, toffee, earth and fruity funk. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of bread, lemon peel and earth. Low to medium bodied with high carbonation. Nice.

beeebon (181) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
A hazy orange coloured beer with minimal but lingering head. Taste is various fruits like apple (reminding me of cider at times), pear, grapes and plum. Added to this is the yeast and some spice. The taste is sweet and a little sour with mild bitterness. A very decent beer.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22 from Ship in a Bottle, Liverpool. Fucker completely exploded all over Rich’s kitchen. Quite sweet, complex, pepper and spice, balsamic vinegar, peach and fruit. Apart from the opening drama I enjoyed this.
