Vignale (3638) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2017
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Rejält disig orangebrun vätska med lågt skum. Syrlig men ocksåå söt fruktig doft med mycket fat och laktosyrlig karaktär. Mjuk sötma som balanserar sötman och tanninerna riktigt bra, fruktig men svår att sätta fingret på vilken men lite aprikos- och plommonbalsamvinäger, men också physalis, gula körsbär och gula krusbär. Riktigt gott.

Bov (12530) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 15, 2017
[email protected] Trappiste - very hazy dark orange beer with a poor head retention; very strong woody notes of vinegar and raisins; low carbonation; full-bodied, sweet and very sour, quite dry and with a long finish of wood, apples and raisins; long lasting sourness ; astringent - too woody to be great

Holmen1 (5573) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2017
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal feb-17:denne kom rett etter Cuvee Freddy Hispana Suizas, og ble en interessant kontrast. Selv om den er lagret på rødvinsfat går assosiasjonene her i retning av hvitvin (kanskje fordi den er en blond?). Litt søtere enn forgjengeren, fruktig og lett i ganen. Aprikos og ananas. Oransjegylden med kort skum.

alteregoo (1296) - Kalisz, POLAND - JAN 17, 2017
Piany praktycznie brak. Barwa różowo żółta, mętna. W intensywnym aromacie kwaśne nuty czerwonego wina, porzeczek, agrestu, starego drewna... W smaku kwaśno słodko - jest solidna octowa kwaśność, jest wino, jest dębina w postaci słodkiego, waniliowego posmaku, taniny, skóra... Wysycenie niskie do średniego, goryczki brak, alkohol niewyczuwalny.
W porównaniu do wersji czystej, nie BA, piwo jest słodsze i kwaśniejsze jednocześnie, mniej tu nut dzikich, pojawiają się za to słodkie akcenty beczki.
