77ships (10771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. From what I have gathered first BA & then dry hopped as opposed the other way around. Rather dark amber appearance, not much head. Smell is heavily sweet marmalade, fruits, mango, tropical fruits, sugar, toffee, some malts. Taste is round, so damn fruity, sweet goodness, crazy sweet according to my tasting notes, marmalade, orange peel, sugar, tropical fruits - like a similarly name juice, mango, thick malts, wood, smidgen of hops. Thick stuff, rounder than the non-BA cascade version, rounder, less hop, thick stuff is awesome. madmitch76 (25230) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012

Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 2. Hazy amber beer, little pale tan head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Smooth malt with a delightful sweet Cognac. Toffee and cream. Trace of hops stops any cloying. Smooth semi dry finish. Effortlessly drinkable. Lovely!
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Slightly murky brown body and tan lace. Woody, concentrated fermented fruit, with fresh forest hops thrown in. Sticky oily body, super concentrated, sharp hop turnaround, complex. Very powerful and quite bitter actually. Not an easy beer to like, but I do.

Tasted at the 4th BBF @ De Molen. Almost clear reddish amber pour. Aroma is full of floral hops, sugary malts, french oak, beechwood. Flavor is sweet malty, bitter, cascade pine and floral hops. Great balance. Lovely brew. bierkoning (13590) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. Lots of Cascade hops and a hint of oak in the aroma. Full bodied, sticky, thick mouthfeel. A mouthful of beer. Malty, very sweet flavor with loads and loads of grassy hops, but also quite noticeable barrel ageing. Burning brandy flavors. Long sugary sweet aftertaste with earthy hops. There is much of everything, but still this beer is well balanced. Top class! Martinus (4692) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
