MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2002
Caramel and lemon-shells in the aroma. Almost no taste of the alcohol, though a sweet malty finish. Difficult to rubricate.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2002
A little thin. I don’t understand why they call it a Lambic at the label. Not very alcoholic. A little boring colour. A little sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Rerate.
Hazy golden color; giant thick head; beautiful lace. Very nice nose of malt and noble wood. Pretty tart taste; malt warmth; full mouth.
A solid beer, pretty original, suitable for any meal (meat, fish, chese...). Interesting.

[2002-08-10, 4-3-3-2-7] Dry nose, with something unpleasant, medicinal. Pretty sweet start and drier finish, but in the taste there's something wrong, like a veggie soup. Strange experience.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2002
Translucent golden syrup colour with large buttermilk head and spatially sporadic lacing. Light fruit, chicken coop yeast and a miniscule dash of lavender perfumed dishwahing detergent aromas. Some lollipop candy is also there as it warms up. Medium body with surprising tongue tingling and bitter start. The middle has even more bitter but sufficient balancing malty sweetness to add interest. Finish is soft light fruit and a faint bitter aftertaste. Interesting, and a bit different.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2002
Orange and caramel aroma. Golden, large white rocky head, beautiful lacing. Light citrus, sweet and hops. Bit sticky but a bit thin as well. Long hoppy finish. Very nice beer but not exceptional. It’s like a mix between Duvel and Palm.

4.3
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
bierkoning (10159) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2002
Strong hop aroma. A little bit thin-bodied. Hopbitter taste and aftertaste. Cloudy.
