njnut (426) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2014
Poured at tasting, a slightly hazy amber, with white head. Lively Co2. The aroma is yeast, banana and cloves. Taste is yeasty, banana, brown sugar a little lemon. In the finish I get some honey and pepper but it is alcohol heavy. Med bodied and dry. Very nice.

Lore (1998) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2016
Hazy golden colour, huge, dense off-white head; aroma of floral honey, chardonnay wine, some peach, green apple notes and hints of gingerbread; taste of honey, bread, apple notes, dry white wine, herbs, peppery notes and maybe some minimal anise, too; dry mouthfeel; like a Duvel with honey, herbs and christmas spices; good, though not among the best Belgian strong ales

Cristobal37 (709) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Best before 2015. Fruity sour white wine, pepper, champagne, cherry aroma. Bronze with nice fluffy head. A bit boozy and like a cheap heller bock. Very prickly going down, tastes like vodka or drain cleaner. Must be because it?s past it?s due date because everyone else seems to think it was good. Subsequent sips aren?t as abrasive but I have to assume this is all because this bottle spoiled or was past due.

Bottle. Golden in colour, quite clear, frothy white head. In aroma spicy (coriander and pepper) with nice peach, citrus and some bubble gum. In taste lightly sweet, with peach, light citrus acidity. Aftertaste with peppery notes, light bitterness. Quite full bodied, high carbonation, no alcohol noticeable. Very well crafted, balanced and tasty beer.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and golden with a small, brief, white head. Full-bodied and creamy with busy carbonation. The aroma and flavor are both a fruity and peppery reflection of each other - with a whole lot of other stuff going on that I can’t properly describe. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Marduk (5887) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). BB2015. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, coriander, spices, honey, caramel and bit yeast in aroma. Sweet, honey, coriander, bread, malty in taste. Coriander and sweet malts in aftertaste. Quite high carbonation. Well the bottle did open with a loud pop! Alcohol is very well hidden. Quite nice and very drinkable.
