77ships (8038) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
33 cl. bottle split - thx. to Dylan / Kraddel - hazy orange amber with tad off-white head - smell is caramel, rather sweet, esters, tad oxidized, caramel toffee, touch fruits but all of this clearly affected by age, bit oxidized broken down. Taste of bitter esters, old cornflakes - Belgian style yeast, sweet due to aged, dusty caramel apples, toffee, oxidized, lightly moldy, herb, ester, spice finished - tad oxidized body - no idea as to age but it is not all that fresh anymore I suppose - not supper easy to judge how it was fresh but no fresh samples are out there or likely to be made again - cover is pretty - cost and this is probably the reason as to why they use the minimalist labels

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
Hazy golden ale, little head. Aroma of spicy malt. Flavour of citrus and the spices among the hops. Dry aftertaste. Not particularly well balanced.

Cloudy amber beer, big suddy white head. An unexpected gusher. Light dry palate, a little crisp. Honey sweet malt with a trace of soap. Trace of hop. Finishes frothy - infected I suspect!

Foffern (1678) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at Baran, Bergen. Has hazy orange colour with a big frothy off-white head that never seems to diminish! Like soap. A pretty malty aroma with some spices and nuts. The flavour is sweeter with fruits, malt and some spices. A slick and a bit watery mouth feel. A nice balanced medium bitterness in the end. A bit special this beer, and it sends me in many directions.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumbildung ist gut, vielleicht sogar etwas zu gut, die Stabilität ist ok-gut. Es riecht fruchtig und hopfig, aber auch etwas bitter-metallig. Geschmack seltsam sehr bitter, ein ziemlich starkes citrussäuerlich-metalliges Aroma, auch fruchtig aber das kommt nicht gut zur Geltung. Später ist es milder die unangenehme bittere kombination ist nicht mehr so intensiv und erinnert jetzt ein bisschen an Gras, insgesamt wird es etwas harmonischer aber nicht viel. Fazit: Gefällt mir nicht so gut! Interessant aber nicht mein Geschmack! Test vom 25.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,8,8,12,8 - 8,50

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2012
from Erzbierschof - hazy and very dark blond beer under a long lasting pale beige foam; nice lacework; the aroma is yeasty, fruity and mineral; some sweetness and a decent malt backbone; a hint of brett-like tartness and some herbal bitterness; long fruity and yeasty hoppy finish with a lingering bitterness

sebletitje (9278) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2011
33cl from DeMolen biershop. BB 15/01/2013. Ambrée, col beige. Arôme léger et houblonné avec une petite pointe de malt fumé ou houblon épice. En bouche, bière facile et agréable, malt rappelant une pointe de fumé, léger épice de coriandre, grains, le tout gardant un aspect fruité d’orange et pamplemousse. Malt confère aussi ce côté fumé léger. Retrouve ce profile DeMolen, avec des houblons nobles et agrumes.
