BVery (5978) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Sampled from a bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are - October 5, 2013. Hazy light amber pour. A bit musty. Didn’t really dig this one.

Quite fruity and sharp, refreshing after-taste. Would. Be great with spicy food.

jhamp9 (1028) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours hazy copper with a lasting white head. Aroma is sour apple, raisin, and yeast. Taste was a watery mix of vinegar and grape juice. Prickly carbonation.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle from Half Time (2008/01/08). Pours a hazy, diry amber with a frothy 3 finger white head. Aroma is red berry fruity, but there’s something that made me think of Homocebrin (which had a little cod liver oil I think). Med body; frothy carb. I’m going with mixed red berry for flavor. Another weird departure in the Belgian beer world.

KyotoLefty (6183) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2011
Bottle from Asao. Cool label. Very fruity aroma, seems like raspberry, though the Japanese label says pomegranite. That also accounts for the color which goes oast amber to a reddish-orange. Lace on top. Fruity, sweet flavor with a golden ale malt character and a slight dryness near the finish. Prickly bitterness in the after taste. Sligtly beer-like though the fruit dominates. Dry, bitter finish saves it. Interesting. Tastes mainly like a fruit beer to me, but no wheere else have I seen mention of then pmegranite being added...

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2011
bouteille 33cl. Ambre, mousse beige légère; Arôme est étonnamment bien fruité donnant des notes de baies, un peu de malt caramel. En bouche, je note ce côté unique de la pomme grenadier dont je ne raffole pas habituellement de par son acidité mais cette fois ci le tout est bien balancé par cet aspect sucré laissé par le sureau. A noter aussi, malt cara laissant une fine amertume avec un fini ayant une touche de fleurs de houblons.

madquacker (1030) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2011
Complex and spicy over an interesting sweet base. Lots and lots going on here. Chewy esters and a light doughy spicy cinnamon.

ALLOVATE (2352) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2011
Tasting from May 2008.
Pours a hazy, auburn copper stained with yeast proteins that settle to the base of the glass. Medial, bubbly, off-white head that is mostly lasting but leaves little legs. Medicinal cherry cough syrup and musky, rose-water and life-saver candy nose with a lick of blood oranges and leavened bread dough. Doughy, sweet caramel, vanilla and musk candy in the mouth becoming decidedly floral in back. Estery, fruit swallow has those tangy blood oranges of the aroma. A little woody, nut peelings in the aftertaste also. A firm body, moderate in carbonation and it’s well rounded flavour-wise - being the positives - but it just doesn’t play too well for me. Not altogether appealing or memorable. Just above the average! (33cL, BB 10/04/08, International Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours a golden body with a thinning filmy white head. Aroma is oxidized, paper, crackery malts, toast, raspberry seeds, cherry pits, cough syrup, medicinal. Flavor is too sweet, honey, simple syrup, mineral, chewable vitamin mineral and metallic with more oxidation- limp cardboardy stale malts. Bleh.
