Embrouille (2848) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of derDoppelbock and Bov. It pours a hazy amber beer with a quick diminishing beige head. Earthy hops, fudge, candied fruits, Stilton, wild strawberries, coconut and candy floss appearing in the aroma which is rather sweet. Nice earthy hops in the flavor. Subdued bitterness. Peppery. Sweet, full bodied with peach, candied fruits, coconut, wild strawberries, caramel, crackers and Stilton showing up. Reminiscence of pepper and nasturcium in the finish. Very good. Thanks derDoppelbock!

holdenn (2115) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to pipeworks for this sample and their hand in this brew. Poured a hazed orange with a white soapy head. Nose of yeast, citrus, floral, herbal, and earthy notes that are abundant, fresh, and inviting. Herbal, citrus, earthy, and yeasty flavors that are juicy and delicious. Finishes dry with more of those herbal hops. Wow, this is tough to believe its 12% when it drinks like half that. I could easily drink a few of these. The dry bitterness of the hops balance the malt sweetness so well. Really tasty beer.

JoeinDahlem (1480) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2009
Bottle at Pre-ZBF. Golden color, faintly buttery-sour nose doesnt sit quite right with dank, grassy hops. Light sweetness and rather extreme, dank, sticky bitterness. Interesting but not my speed.

bierkoning (13126) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2009
Bottle @ home. Amber color, hazy. Citric but also yeasty aroma with vegetable notes. Biscuity malty sweetish, citric, yeasty alcoholic flavor, with notes of nutmeg. Walnut bitter aftertaste. I couldnt get through the yeast, therefore disappointing.
