2012 Edition. Swietne chmielne i zywiczne w zapachu. Niesamowicie pacznace morela. W smaku wytrawne hwiaty bzu jakby. Kolor pomaranczowo jasny, silnie metny z kremowa i trwala nieustepujaca piana. Piwo krzepkie tresciwe choc ma malo alkoholu doskonale syci. W sam raz do posilku. Niezapomniane w smaku chmiele belgijskie oczywiscie. Super smacznie bylo, polecam kazdemu

A hazy, orange beer with a big, cloudy and white head. The nose is fresh, fruits, oranges and spices. Nicely aromatic. Taste of fruits, some spicyness, oranges, the hops are aromatic as a citrusfruity and slightly herbal. The end is hoppy and dry. Medium bodied, high carbonation that is nicely balanced with fresh impression. Nicely aromatic and hoppy beer, what this beer would be if the botle would be more fresh, good beer.

Assaggiata in bottiglia qualche giorno f. Purtroppo ho trovato solo la 2012 e non la 2013. Bel colore giallo, bella schiuma bianca, un po grossolana. Naso scarso con lievissimi sentori erbacei. Al palato purtroppo stata un po una delusione: corpo scarico, lievi sentori erbacei e leggero amaro. Alla prima occasione va assaggiata una versione imbottigliata di fresco, perdendo troppo col passare del tempo.

Bottle from Barleywine enjoyed at home
Golden clear, massive beige head. Smells of belgian yeast esters, malts, some grass and phenols. Light sweet, quite fruity, yeast esters, some meaty flavors, spicy. Medium bitter finish, quite intense hops. Overall not very exciting

Big bottle. Bought it with the XX Bitter at the same time... both turned out to be skunked, but this one much less, only a quarter of the way (?) so it wasnt completely ruined. Shared with a friend who immediately mentioned the skunk without prodding so I know Im not crazy. But anyhow pours light amber off-white head, grassy/floral hops, grass straw esters and pepper flavour... I think this is my kind of beer, sadly.

Bottle from Prik & Tik Marlou. Pours sunny yellow with a big white head. Smells of wheat, lemons and spices. Wheaty, sour beginning soon makes space for an upcoming refreshing, grassy hop bitterness. Great hoppiness lingering till the end, dry hopped freshness with only a little bitterness supporting the floral flavors and giving this beer a pleasant medium body. Has a very dry finish, and is an overall easy to drink harvest beer.

Bottle 750ml @ Geokkjer
Pours cloudy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits, peach and yeast. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long fruity and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Bottle, 75cl. A big, collapsing, off-white head forms over an unclear, orange-colored body. Lots of peppery hops on the nose, with orangey fruityness, some white sugar and Belgian yeast, and also some grass. Its quite bitter in the mouth, both initially and in the end, with orange zest, white sugar and a yeast hint. Its quite dry on the palate, even though theres sweetness there as well, with a soft but perhaps a bit low carbonation level. Fruity and bitter finish with a peppery, grassy hops touch. Quite nice this one, but I have to admit I prefer the more traditional Belgian way of brewing. 140111
