See-through golden-yellow body. Fruity aroma. Spiced flavour with a blend of tropical fruits and honey sweetness. Little bitterness to counter the sweet impact. Well bodied. Soft carbonated (taster at CBF, 16.05.2009).

This was just plain weird. It smelled like bubble gum. It tasted like bubble gum. Thank God it wasn’t chewy. I tasted no spices whatsoever. It was pure Bubble Yum.

Draught, 8% at KØ09. Spicy wheat aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. The flavour is sweet and spicy with some medicinal phenols. Tastes OK, though. Sweet, spicy and strange.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft… Lightly hazed, deep yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. Notes of pale grains, fennel, clove, ripe banana and a sprig of mint ascend from the glass. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor provides way too much fennel and clove for my taste. Spicy, sweet finish. Way too much going on here – over spiced and too sugary.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Vine and Barley. Pours a hazy yellow with a big fluffy long lasting head. Nose is crazy spicy with all sorts of wierdness. I definitely can detect the ginger, coriander, pepper and chilies. I don’t get any coconut or any of the others. In the flavor I get all of the above I mentioned and a ton of honey and cinnamon to boot. Sweet almost honey wine like flavor with a lasting vanilla note. Sorta like a Tripel without the hops. Pretty tasty and puts me in the mind of thai food for some reason.
