Vignale (3961) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2016
Flaska från 2015 Lot 02 13,7 abv. En riktigt spänstig barley wine men fin söt fruktighet, zestig citrus, lätta cognacstoner och tydlig beska. Aningen spritig men det stör inte mycket men skvallrar nog om att den kunnat ligga några år till. Dt gör också BBD som är satt till 2040. Men riktigt gott redan nu.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 24, 2016
ASPETTO: ambrata torbida, dalla schiuma abbastanza bianca, fine e persistente. AROMA: note floreali e di cioccolato, con un po’ di liquoroso. Abbastanza intenso. GUSTO: in bocca è un po’ particolare. Ci sono vari sapori, tra i quali il caramello (non tanto), un liquoroso (che si sente soprattutto se la si lascia scaldare) e lo speziato, insieme ad altri. Conclude con un leggero finale amarognolo. Sapori non collegati benissimo tra di loro, forse la bottiglia che ho assaggiato era ancora giovane. CONCLUSIONE: piuttosto difficile dare un giudizio complessivo. La birra mi è piaciuta molto, ma la trovo lontana dalla perfezione, sia per quanto riguarda lo "slegamento" dei sapori, sia per una certa -a mio avviso- lontananza dallo stile. Diciamo che la salva il liquoroso dato dal Cognac, altrimenti l’avrei paragonata più che altro ad una Belgian Strong Ale.

Koelschtrinker (21116) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2012
Süßlicher, malzig alkoholischer Beginn. Im Mittelteil etwas wässrig, schade. Malziger werdend, süßlich, deutlich brotig. Nett – aber reißt einen nicht vom Hocker. /8/8/10/9/10

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, as Garrigues Bière en Barrique n°1
Hazy amber color, with minimum head. The aroma is simpler than expected, apples and booze. Simple flavor, mild sweetness, some overripe apples, and a boozy character.
Unimpressive, at least.
