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 (705) - 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.

Yves (2834) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2008
Blond coloured beer with medium carbonation and medium white head. Hoppy + spicy aroma. Full palate little sparkless. Finish is spicy, a little herby and dry.

DutchCrow (20) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2008
Very sparkling. Light, hazy, golden colour. Big white head. Kind of a weird smell. Tastes a bit like citrus, a bit sour. Doesn’t taste like 9% alcohol at all. Overall I’m not very impressed. It was enjoyable, but not ’one to remember’.
