TheCametron (1592) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle. Reddy orange with foamy white head. A fruity beer with a clear alcohol presence. Berries and bubblegum with a bitter finish. Itís not really very well balanced. The flavours are cobbled together.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - MAY 15, 2013
Hazy brownish amber with a thick, frothy, beige, nice thick lasting head. Smells of toasted malt, pepper, caramel, medium fruit - berries and peach, orange - citrus, and spiced hops. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Deep malty sweetness with dried fruit and caramel with a honey fruity middle and a dry, dark fruit finish. Very sweet and a light fruity bitterness.

Orange amber coloured beer. A very big head that holds nice. Bitter beer with some sweet fruit and caramel and spices. Good hoppy biterness.

BeerBaboon (1485) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Dark red with a little bit of brown in it. Very strong aroma of yeast and pastry. Smells like a frikkin home brew. Yet itís a pretty good aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet. Pretty interesting brew.

dutchbeerpages (1473) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2011
Aroma of sweet fruit preserve and a huge white uneven head. True to its style with the bitterness of an IPA. Nice sweet aftertaste that stays forever. Bottle from Ton Overmars in Amsterdam.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a big, lasting and beige head. Aroma is caramelly and sweet, berries, strawberries, "wet wood", surprisingly "berryjuice" like aroma. Taste is toffeeish and malty, sweet berries, after beginning taste turns into dryer and wooden hoppyness takes place, dark fruits, aftertaste is tight and slightly biting. Medium+ bodied, nice and style like drinkability. Aftertaste isnít very nice, otherwise, berry, quite unique and interesting beer.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB.

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołůw, POLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Reddish brown with a big head of medium durability. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters (red apples, apple puree, redcurrant), with a quite strong Czech herbal hop quality. Sweetish-sourish (vaguely vinous), very pleasant smell. Full body, taste is partly sweetish because of the fruitiness and malt, ending with a strong and durable hop bitterness and an aftertaste of apples, hops and some green olives. This is a really great interpretation of the style.

dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thick bubbly orangey white head. Mango, slight honey, thick perfumed hop nose. Juicy citrus front flows into slight estery sweetness, with a drying peppery hop linger.
