UPDATED: DEC 18, 2004 Batch 55: Poured a pint of head before settling down. The beer itself is dark orange. Some sludge poured into my glass. Banana aroma. Belgian qualities throughout in this gem. There is the banana/yeastiness to it. Some spiciness. I am surprised this is listed as a barleywine. The finish is warming from the alcohol. Very nice. Sampled Batch 9 17 Dec 04- it has seen better days. Flat. 7-3-7-3-15

Pours cloudy gold. Aroma of sweet malt, sugar, and some fruit. Taste is different than the aroma, not as heavy or sweet as I expected. Some fruit in the flavor, with hops as well, but mostly at the end. Not what I expected, but a really nice brew.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2004
12 oz bottle, tulip glass. Wheat bread, cookie, candi sugar (H); flower and orange hops (M); doughy yeast (L); honey aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a heavily sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium-full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: sweet, complex, bigtasty!

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 Batch 8, from 1998. Hazy deep golden color, some floaties that did not sink even after 10 minutes, firm beige head. Full sweet aroma, malty, earthy, some fig, very light floral hops and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavor was sweet, fruity (mango/melon), malty, a little spicy, and with some very mellowed out hops. No prescence of alcohol, very mellow, huge mouthfeel, gelatinous. The years in the cellar have been very kind. Excellent.

Amber Coloring.. Hops galore. Hint of Barley...but barley wine isnt what you think of... A nice perspective...I have to say I enjoyed this one very much the more I drank it.

Yikes! Pours an amberish color; very cloudy. Big head. Very hoppy for a barley wine, although barley makes its existence known. Touches of yeast as well. Not a bad barley wine.

Havent been impressed by this brewerys beers. This was a murky copper with a HUGE frothy tan head. Citrus, hoppy aroma. Fruity. Medium body. Taste was very bitter, sour. Unpleasant. Just didnt like this.

On tap at the Hair of the Dog brewery. Pours a nice orange color with a nice white head. Aroma had a citrus hop smell to it with a nice spice mixed in. Great malty taste in this brew. Very smooth and enjoyable.

Pour was an orangish, caramel color. Large foamy head with no dissapation. Smells of citrus and orange, with a hint of spice. Taste is bitter up front and citrusy. Lingering taste of oranges on the back end.
