harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 On tap at ZBF 08. Blond, very hoppy beer. It’s pretty good, drinkable, along the lines of XX Bitter. Belgian yeasty hoppy golden ale. Above average. 3.5/5 Re-rate at Twickenham Brewery tasting 08. Very pleasant hoppy, creamy beer that is very very drinkable.

argo0 (11450) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2008
(33cl bottle) Great googly moogly what a gusher! It kept foaming out of the bottle long after my pint glass was filled up with beige foam. Cloudy apple cider body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, spicy, Belgian yeast, some grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, Belgian yeast, spicy, some grapefruit, peach. Medium body, some acidity, light chalk.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle, bought @ De Molen Beershop.
Pours clear coppery golden with a big, staying, frothy, off-white head. Peachy and fresh fruity aroma. Good hops, light caramel malt background. Medium carbonation, fine oily and lightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very citrusy, lots of peach, grapefruit, light caramel. Quite zesty as well with apple peel and grapes. Good dryish flowery and fruity bitterness in the finish. Good.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place in (near) St. Louis, MO. What a gusher. Took two glasses to absorb it. Pours hazy light amber with a truly humongous light bubbly off-white head. Aromas include a lot of yeast, some citrus, and a little malt. Darn’d if it don’t seem a bit soapy. So what aroma soap, not sure. Medium body with rather smooth carbonation. Flavor is really spicy hop over malt. Rather peppery. Something like grapefruit rind. Slight burn down the gullet. This one is just so out of control. A bit of barnyard seems to be present. An exciting adventure from start to finish. Almost genteel after it settles down for awhile. Good ale. Really.

Pinball (10770) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2009
33cl fresh bottle at home. BB may 1st, 2011, sampled nov 5th 2009. cap came off almost by itself with a huge POP , my hand was forcibly moved up from the bottle by the explosion. not much beer was spilled as i poured quickly, however, with more than half the beer in a glass fluffy head still lava’s out of the neck of the bottle. I advise the use of napkins, glasses and earplugs when opening this one. Unclear orange with lots of debris of different sizes. very fluffy almost white but offwhite head. nice bitterhoppy aroma, not very strong, but a lot more "american" than your usual belgian beer. A little spicyness too. flavor is floral, spicy, bitterhoppy, as well as a little pine and grapefruity from hops. ends fruity and bitterhoppy. I would’ve rated it a bit higher if it didn’t almost explode upon opening. Also looks bad with the debris and the fluffy head.
