WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Somewhat confused beer. Orange and spice like a tripel, dried fruit spiciness and rich dark flavors and aromas like a quad, with perhaps a hint of lactic sourness like a lambic. No reason it has to adhere to any specific style ... some of my favorites are American hopped tripels, or lambic IPAs, or any of the complex hybrids that seem to be popping up all over. Maybe just a tad more alcoholic than I expected. Nice, drinkable, great complement for the duck I and jerked chicken that I served with it.

Linnet (1173) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2015
Yeasty, spicy, malty and earthy hops, ABV noticable but well integrated. Deep copper colour, lovely beige head, lots of lacing. Medium bite (heavy for the style) noticably sweet, slightly, slightly salty. Medium/fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Solid.

SamTheBarrel (509) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2015
750ml dark olive-green bottle with the breweries embossed logo and a sealed cap, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark brown with a medium sized foamy beige head with good retention. Aroma of orange peels, raisins and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, caramel, raisins, muscovado and loaf. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, but a little too sweet and unbalanced.

Russintoner, ganska lätt kolsyrad vilket passade bra och behaglig värme i eftersmaken. God öl!
