Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUL 30, 2008
Clear yellow with a medium white head and active carbonation. Spicy, yeast, and some fruit in the aroma. Mouth has a bite to it. Dry, spices, yeast, caramel malts, and some fruit in the flavor. Decent, nothing to write home about.

stouby (3510) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle at Paters Vatje. Light yellow with a large white head, ok lacings. Aroma heavy malty (caramel, fruity), moderate hoppy. Flavor moderate/heavy sweet and bitter. Medium/full body, the alcohhol is felt.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2008
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden with a smallish, but tight and cloudy head with some lace. Aroma of sweetish, pale malts and pear. Pear-honey-sweetish-malty flavor with moderate acidity and some alcohol. Medium-bodied, a bit acidic and alcoholic palate with soft carbonation. A quite smooth and honey-fruity strong ale - but a bit too acidic, and not very interesting.

Stefano (1851) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2009 Hazy light orange body. Sweet tropical fruit aroma with coriander and other spice notes. Nice flavour of yeast, malt and some berries, that ends in a nice sweet and little bitter at the end.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Bottle (33 cl) at Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium. Pale golden with a medium white head. Honeyish malt aroma with spicy yeast notes. Light to medium bodied and smooth. Nicely balanced. 6/3/7/3/12->3.1.

New rating:
Draught at a café in Bouillon, Belgium. Same tasting notes, but a bit higher rating, probably because I had been hiking for six hours: 8/3/8/4/15->3.8. Final rating an average.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2008
A very lite colored yellow beer, very clear and sparkling. A white head, which doesn’t stay for long. It’s looks and tastes like a pilsner. Not even a good one. Not mine cup of tea (beer).

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice hazy deep golden colour with a good well lasting creamy white head. Lots of fruits and malt in the aroma along with yeast, some spices and some hops. Good filling mouthfeel. Very nice flavour with a good sweetness, yeast, fruits, hops, some spices and surprisingly wheat too. Sweetishfruity, yeasty and bit bitter finish. Great brew.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2007
[Bottle bought in La Roche.] A strong blonde with weak triple notes makes this brew better than average blondes. Powerful aroma followed by a flavor with notes of fruits, caramel, weak but good alcohol, spices, yeast, citrus, fullbodied and a nice finish.
