fonefan (43166) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2006
Bottle @ Kerstbierfestival 2006 in Essen, BE. Hazy golden / yellow color with a fair white head. Aroma is fruity hoppy, spices (honey, vanilla, wood) Flavor is long and heavy sweet, acidic and bitter with a alcoholic finish. Very complex and well balance.

yespr (39608) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours orange with quickly disappearing crispy white head. Aroma is slight acidic, citric and sweet. By far not as pleasant as the flavour. Flavour is very sweet, raisins, dried fruit, malt and decent bitter hops.

Ungstrup (33790) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2006
[At RBESG 2006] A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and spice - the most dominant spices being cinnamon and cloves. The flavor is sweet combined with a slight acidity, and with lots of spices, cloves and peber, and De Dolle yeast and alcohol. The alcohol burns in the throat. A good beer - but my guess is that it will improve in years to come.

joergen (25604) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 Bottle. Cloudy golden coloured with a white head. Peppery aroma of wood and fruits with notes of spices. Peppery flavour of wood, spices and fruits.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy amber golden with a small, white head. Lightly tart, citrusy nose with a whiff of yeast. Fairly full body with sweet, malty accents. A honeyish character and some indefinable spices. Exciting all right at the mo, but will probably develop a lot with aging. 260806

oh6gdx (24607) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
Bottled. Hazy pale nutbrown colour, white small head. Aroma is yeast with strong citric and sour fruits. Flavour is sour fruits along with some spices, plum and mild honey. A bit alcohol is present also, but fits the whole well. Will do with aging.

omhper (22896) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled. Hazy golden, brief head. Fantastic arousing aroma of muscat grapes and wood. Sweet with some caramel undeneath a layer of wood and grapes. Reminiscent of a much sweeter Cantillon Reed Gueuze Muscat, but withbigger bolder flavours. The same fantastic flavours as in the 2000, still too sweet - perhaps this one more so than the 2000, but yet one of the very best beers I know.

Travlr (20303) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle shared with tarheels86 at the Kulminator. Clear dark golden color til the yeast was added, medium white head, great lacing. Aroma of sour apricot, dust and leather. Taste has summer fruits, some funk. Lots of character and complexity. Shockingly good.
