hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit, light biscuit. Bittersweet - a little sugary with oranges and some biscuity malt, pleasant bitter finish with grapefruit, some pine and herbs. The malt side is sweet and light, but there’s enough character there to complement the bitter citrus without just being sweet. Refreshing and tasty enough.

Erzengel (2338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
Angenehm süßlich, malzig-fruchtig, etwas dickflüssig, aber sehr süffig. Floral-mild. Leckeres Bier.

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - JUL 28, 2012
Tap. Listed at 5.6% and certainly not from cask. Rich, full and fruity. Lots of berries, grapefruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Really full - if a bit heavy handed. Well made and certainly recommended.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Not a lot of aroma, bits of grapefruit, toffee. Not a lot in the taste either. Dry, bitter finish. Interesting, but not sufficiently interesting for a second go-round,
