JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - NOV 20, 2012
From tap, a wild version of Lion Claws. Still fermenting in the tank when served (bretty cells working hard for the good!) Pours light orange with massive white foam. Aromas are unbelievable and so powerfull: fruity, hoppy, grassy, woody ... and like a Condrieu wine i.e. peach and apricot notes. Dried fruits and almond ... huge massive brew. I love it !

Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a tight, white cream head. Lightly funky aroma with soft white wine notes. Medium sweet flavor with moderate alcohol presence, light wood, mellow citrus. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sticky to finish with light, dry wood. Pretty good balance here for the fairly high ABV.
