sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2006
(Bottled, 2001 vintage @Kulminator) Slightly hazy golden (opaque brownish with the huge amount of yeast found in the bottle) with a medium, lasting and lacy head. Sweetish-caramely, surprisingly fresh, camomile-hoppy aroma. Very strongly hoppy, crisp flavor. Hops are very well preserved, turning the brew into a sweet-flowery hop soup. Very nice palate for a 4.5% brew! Medium-bodied, refreshing, low-carbonated, slightly acidic. An excellent, hoppy brew with a pleasantly low abv. Wonder why they quit brewing this...

MadRobin (1940) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 2, 2012
On tap at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine. Opaque dark brown small tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of fruit, spice, nuts, citrus, brown sugar, molasses, fig and date. Taste earthy, toasted malt, fruit, orange and brown sugar. Medium plus body with above average carbonation. Smooth, slightly foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2001
I will admit that my recollections of this beer are not what they should be (stupid Amsterdam), but I do recall that it looked cool, had a refreshing, vibrant taste, and that I really enjoyed it.

With it’s typical Chouffe taste i like this beer, though it’s not as strong as the original Chouffe. But this beer is a good alternative in the summertimes!
