Dark yellow color, big white head. Cloudy appearance. Obvious orange with spices, some lemon and licorice in aroma. Medium bodied, slightly watery palate. Flavor has also mild spices, lemon and licorice, aftertaste has medium alcohol, too much of it in here. Nice lace in glass.

Habanero (2441) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2006
Bottle: Pours misty and deep golden with a large, white fluffy head, but short lasting - some lacing. Aroma of yeast, citrus and coriander. The flavour is fruity with cranberries and lemon. Medium bodied. Sour and slightly bitter finish. Fresh beer despite itís high alcohol pct. but I had expected more.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Pours a hazy amber gold with a lacy head. Sweet and creamy with a medim body and light carbonation. The taste has some fruit and just a bit of spice. Very smooth, and does a decent job of hiding the alcohol.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 Bottled. Yellow-golden, massively carbonating beer with some yeast-clouds and a large, stable, creamy, off-white head. It has an aroma with cellar, black-currant, sugar and some sourness. Flavor has a great deal of alcohol, and malt, fruityness, spicey hops a bit sourness. Medium to thin body and a finish with alcohol, some metallic notes and spicey hops. Rating: 5-4-6-2-12-2.9. 060619

On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, white head. Itís fruity on the nose, with apricot, citrus and coriander, and pale malts. Some sugary notes too, but not much. Itís a bit warming on the palate, with a nice bitterness showing up towards the end. Apricot, citrus, some coriander and pale malts too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Although a bit too warming, even considering its ABV, itís a pleasant and tasteful beer. 110430

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Honey color. Honey and mandarin in the aroma. Sweetish and rather thin. Citric flavor. Raspberry esters. A touch of hop character coming up in the aftertaste. The alcohol is partly hidden by the sweetish flavor. (7 3 7 4 12 = 3.3) A bottle tasted in feb 2010 was very disappointing. An alcoholic and perfumed brew, with hints of plum. Yeasty notes in the finish. (5 3 5 2 9 = 2.4) Rating is an average.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 27, 2006
Draught. A bit hazy yellow/golden colour with small, but longlasting white head. Aroma is strong citrus with hints of spices and yeast. Very sweet citrus (blood orange meets lemon and lime) flavour with some malty hints. Lots of fruit in aftertaste.
