RBSG09 bottle at the grand tasting. Pours a deep clear copper color with a tan head. Smells pretty much just like oranges. Not much else. Tastes like chewing on orange peels. Mikkeller has gone off the deep end with this one. I think Billy Mays sold this as a wood polish product...

OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2009
[email protected]øbenhavnske Øldage 2009. Cloudy orangey-brown body. Virtually no head. Massive, oily hop aroma; citrus, evergreen and tropical. Hop dominance in the flavor as well. Heavy bitterness with resin, pine, grass and fresh citrus. Subdued malt body, some caramel and roastedness beneath. Full body. Lasting hop bitter finish. Very potent, quite challenging. A sipper for the hop heads.

Bottled at PBF. Clear ruby, almost no head. Powerful perfumy lychee aroma. Fairly sweet with almost full body. Shitloads of Amrican hops assault me with peach and lychee. There’s also lots of substance in the form of cookie malt and plenty of alcohol. If there is a theme beer to Ministry’s Jesus Built My Hot Rod this is it. Not really a beer for sipping as much as a beer to drink the whole bottle yourself and go nuts. Yeah f*ck it!

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
(Bottled, 1.5l, #666) Clear, deep red with a small, bubbly but lasting head. Aroma of alcohol and hops, with some underlying caramely maltiness. Aromatic-hoppy, exotic-fruity flavor with very high bitterness and some alcohol. Medium body, slightly fizzy carbonation. In a way the exotic fruitiness is nice, but overall this is quite harshly bitter and somewhat too alcoholic for the body. Could improve with ageing.

TBone (18217) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Bottled #666 (PBF, BBE 2019, courtesy of oh6gdx). Clear ruby color, small white head. Nice piney-pineapple fruity hoppy aroma. Flavor is also dominated by hops. A bit sweetish with caramel in the backgorund, medium-bodied. Long resiny hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit wineous. Quite nice sipping beer.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Bottled. Coppery colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity, alcoholic some mild yeasty notes as well. Flavour is a bit fruity, alcoholic and some spruce as well as mild yeastyness.

larsniclas (7217) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2009
Sampled from bottle at Bishops Arms, Järntorget Dark hazy amber. Small, bubbly head. Loads of flowery hoppiness. Almost flat with grassy hops. A bit too bitter...

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
[Sampled with the duo Svoger & Svogergylp at DØE, Valby, 2009.] Hazy amber look with off white head. Notes of very much grass, all the way deep down the body. But also rye, caramel, sweetness and some fruits. Pleasant!

UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It serves a clear, copper or dark golden body, topped by a complete lack of head. Still, looking quite lovely. Vinous, syrupy and fruity nose with peachy hops, resin and white sugar. Bitter flavor with sugary sweetness, citrus and resin. Sweetish on the palate, quite flat, with astringent bitterness and a good warmth. Bitter finish with all the initial flavors present. A big, extreme beer, maybe a bit too much. Strange thing is that I didn’t remember it as good as my notes and rating says it is. Rating: 8-4-8-4-17-4.1. 090515

Bottle, 150cl, at RBNAG -09. Courtesy of non-present Gunnar, thx a lot! It pours an unclear, orange-amber body and a beige head. Hoppy nose with a Belgian-inspired malty base. Pinecones, citrus, resin and some fluorine. Quite warming and certainly full-bodied, sweetness overpowered by lasting bitterness, but not wiped out by it. Lots of citrus and resins. A lovely beer, maybe a bit too much. 091107
