Not so Bourbon and oak dominated as the aroma suggests. Needs the hops (had I another I wouldn't hang onto it). Holds the booze pretty well.

bb10/17. Floral, citrus, some tropical & piney notes. Enough bread crust. Bitterness not excessive. Seemed softer on tap, but is also good.

Citrus and some tropical notes, barely enough biscuity sweetness. A little austere for me, but well done. Enlivening.

Too fizzy in bottles. A little of the distinctive PoR bite, but mostly clean and bland.

Yabbut still prefer bottles. One I've expected to cool on for a long time, but haven't.

Another 8/16 bottle. Again surprised at how hoppy it is. Good stage with the brett stating to kick in.

SN are back in the _saddle_ with this one. Lighter malts, some booze, a melange of citrus. Pretty good.

Dried fruit, bread, earth, mild roast. Dries out enough. A more than solid cheapish dubbel.

Strong bread and crusts, cloves, mild dried fruit incl banana. (Gets too prominent for me when less fresh). Spicy, almost sour tangy end.

Really quite watery. Sweet and slightly tart apricots, orange that is indeed chewable vitamin-like, long left over lemon juice. Dull.

Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan by Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel

Spiced bread, tangy wheat, some stewed fruit. Solid refreshment but not a patch on the normal hefe for mine.

Brouwerij De Ranke by Kriek De Ranke

Plump cherries, surprising toffee note. Sourness is modest but settles on the ti[ of the tongue right at the end. Typically convincing.

Lemon, boiled grapefruit, some herbs + tropical fruit. Not much behind. Clean, dryish finish with bitterness that fades slowly. Pretty good.
