Icedwarf (1913) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2018
Helder bruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is warm en krachtig en licht zuur met iets van cognac en appel. Helaas kan ook deze mij niet echt bekoren. Volgens etiket 11% en een barley wine.

Ke, at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Hazy amber, rich creamy head. Evident peppery calvados aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Cereals and aniseed, notes of marzipan and plenty of calvados. Peppery intensely warming finish. Heavy on barrel character, but a great base beer and a good match with the barrel.

Zlotta (4254) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2017
Sampled from tap at Borefts 2017. Clear, amber with a beige head. Sweetish, slightly sourish, moderately fruity aroma of caramel, lemon, oak, some apples and hints of barnyard. Quite sweet, malty, a little sourish taste of caramel, apples, lemon, oak and some barnyard, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly woody-tart finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

SinH4 (6931) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Tap. Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma is apples, barrel. Taste is apple funk, straw, dough, funky. High carbonation. Lots of calvados character indeed, but not for me.

Beerhunter111 (23785) - Beerland, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2017. A hazy orange golden beer with a mid sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of strong reddish malt, red fruits. Taste of strong reddish malt, riped red fruits, wood, boozy.

Borefts 2017 day 2. Hazy bright orange copper amber with white head. Big sweet and sour grape most, caramel and muskat. Big sweet and moderate sour, mild bitter. Over medium body and soft carbonation.

02/09/2017 @home - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck. Hazy amber with medium light tanned head. Nose sweet malty, fruity, caramel, calvados. Taste is nice mix of the base beer spiciness from the mustard seeds, sweet caramel, calvados, fruity. Nice complex beer. 2017 bottle version seems to be better than the draught one.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 @ Beerlovers Bar. Alvinne Tap Takeover 2/09/2017 Aroma is very boozy and oak. Appearance is orange and murky. Taste is too boozy and too much oak, tastes old an a tad over-mature fruit. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this beer. Palate is full, flat and boozy.
