Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, - DEC 31, 2012
0.75 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, thanks Mikko M! Hazy golden color with long lasting creamy head. Sweetish aroma with herbal hops on top, apricot, clove, pepper and citrusy corinder a bit more on the background. Rich fruity flavor with apricot, pear, citrus, coriander, herbal hops, pepper and clove. Medium to full body. Good balanced taste, spiciness is fairly restrained which allows nice fruitiness to come through. There is some warming alcohol but this is deceitfully drinkable.

Zlotta (447) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
0.75 l corked bottle from Bierpost, now about three years old. Clear, luscious golden yellow with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, tan to white head. Yeasty-spicy aroma of coriander, vanilla, citrus, apricot jam and hints of cinnamon. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of vanilla, coriander, coconut, citrus, apricot jam and hints of cinnamon, followed by a long, slightly bitter, gently warming, alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very spicy, great mouthfeel. The alcohol is noticable but not yet disturbing, may have been different right after bottling. Suggests christmas spices with a gently fruity and yeasty touch, providing an almost full body. Very good!

ThirstyBird (2255) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy honey color with a light tan head. The semi is Juicy Fruit gum with fruit and toasted malt, some herbs. The taste is pretty much as it smells with some crisp dryness and yeast at the end. Light/medium body with fine carbonation.

The cork shot hard, and I’m glad I moved out of the way. This beer is about what you’d expect, malt sweetness cut by yeast spiciness, hops are very faint in the background.

Achel (239) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 Opened with a good strong effusion of gas. Pours hazy dark gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma of malt and slightly spicy hop. Full bodied, thinning as the carb leaves. Flavor is quite floral with light malt and some standard Belgian herb/spice. And fruity. Rather sophisticated and tasty.

probstblueribbon (3351) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep golden with a full, tight white head. Aroma: Boozy and fruity, lots of lemon-lime notes, sort of herbal, sweet honey, coriander. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Lots of lemon-lime, quite fruity and sweet, honey, a little coriander, some booze, almost buttery; quite sweet with minimal bitterness, some alcohol and a long, fruity finish.

Not bad. A bit too sweet for me.

janubio (556) - SPAIN - MAY 17, 2015
Hazy golden colour, big white head that does not hold for too loong, but leaves a good lace and a ring on the surface. Lots of sediments clearly visible through the bottle. Spicy aroma, with cloves, bay leaf, candy, banana, apricot. Medium to full body, sticky, creamy. Taste is similar to aroma: Cloves, spices, candy,malt, fruits. Special indeed.
