wlajwl (5667) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Aroma is complex fruit and a low musty character. The flavor is fruit, citrus/grapefruit, biscuit/bready malts and a tangy finish.

EithCubes (5543) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle by 01.13. Nose with a strong caramel base and piny hops, some citrus/grapefruit. Hazy yellow-orange with a rocky off-white head. Taste is nice and bitter, brings it, spicy/floral notes with a little Christmas cookie and caramel, dries but there’s seemingly more booze here than the 5.6% listed on the label. Very (too-) crisp medium body an the grapefruit really makes itself known with some volume. Just heavy.

DutchDrebus (5540) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
Bottle @ benzai. Slightly hazy orange colour with a large white head. Smells hops, fresh, some malts, nice. Tastes quite bitter, slightly aspirin, hops, some malts. Thin to medium body, medium carbo. Gets better when you drink more of it.

jaghana (5433) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle 50cl, a clear pale amber beer with good head, retention and lacing. Nose is very fruity on resin, grapefruit, orange and grass. Aroma is very sweet on caramel and orange notes with intense bitterness, this strong bitterness has a very long duration. Nothing exceptional for 9€ the bottle.

erickok (5268) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2015
Loads of modern hops, citrus, pine, grapefruit and quite grapes, mixed with a very English (not quite clean but dry) yeast. Very dry bitter body, string astringent ending. But drinkable and very much so for 7.6%! Not very balanced but I really like it. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

mkel07 (5076) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2012
500ml bottle. There is a mixture of malt and melon fruit on the aroma which is pleasant enough. Beer looks strong in the glass with a deep amber colour and a sturdy cap of foam. Sits in the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a metallic edge on the palate.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy copper to amber color. Aromas of pine, nuts, toffee and some graininess. Fruity, nutty and bitter taste with toffee, pine, grapefruit and some petrol. Firmly bitter, long bitter finish. Smooth oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really tasty bitter ale.
