darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Had on tap in Belgium. Very refreshing. A good restorative on a hot day. Rich color and taste. But surprisingly mild and smooth. A nice hop bitterness. Don’t drink too fast!

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2005
Beautiful amber brown colour, but with a quite small off-white head. Aroma of roses, alcohol, toffee and hops. The taste is a roasty malt combination of sweet and sour, very unusual, with a more hoppy finish.

Amber, lightbrown lasting head. Aroma from toffee and cream. Flavor brings chocolate, mushroom (!) and toffee. Spicy flavor with some alcohol, nutty, earthy and with a spicy finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Pours out a nice deep red with a small off white head. Smells of cherries, roses and sugar. Tastes very unusual. Some nice bitter sour notes. Some grapey elements are present, but otherwise, this one’s very hard to place. Definitely unique,
