TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle (in NZ). Very lively pour, plenty of carbonation with a huge frothy white head. Sweet and spicy yeasty aroma. Lots of bittering and dry alcohol on the palate. The malt is slightly bready with a champagne-like dry grape finish. Probably one you would prefer to share. Mine seemed to lack the sweetness others refer to, which would have helepd to offset the strong alcohol presense.

DuffMan (7998) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2008
Hazy brassy gold with a big lively white head. Aromas of geraniums and straw and spices. Sweet aroma leads into a sweet malty palate. Perfumey herbal character with underlying honey sweetness. Better than I anticipated quite frankly but not one I would return to.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2008
Not too much different from the standard 8% Augustijn. A darker gold colour. Minimal head. Rough honey scent. Flavour rough honey, flowers and alcohol with a bit of a bitter rough finish.

Beerman6686 (5322) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Poured a nice hazy golden color with a big white head Aroma was really spicey, and sweet. Flavor wasnt nearly as spicey as aroma, really sweet candy sugar. Covered up the alcohol very well.

janubio (525) - SPAIN - JUL 17, 2008
330 ml bottle. Pale golden colour, a good white head, always keeps a lace on the surface. Champagne like aroma, with spices and lemony hints, some apple too. In mouth is sparkling, remember me of champagne but also of sherry wine, apples, lemon and spices. Dry after taste. I wouldn’t matter to try another one any other day.
