oh6gdx (25452) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottled (backlog, had in Poirotti, may that pub RIP as well). Hazy orangeish amber colour with a rich white head. Aroma is mild herbs, alcohol, yeast, spices and slight acidic wooden notes. Flavour is wood, herbs, yeast, mild tartness as well as some grains.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle, at London Drinker Beer Festival, March 2006. A bit odd this. The beer we had was definitely pale gold in colour but comments from others suggest a rather darker beer. Quite powerful spicy, yeasty aroma - typical Belgian nose. Lightish body. Lots of orangey, slightly sharp hops. Some sweet, fruity malt lurking in the background. Not bad.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with lots of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with nice caramel notes and a touch of candy sugar. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch warming.

caesar (6680) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2006
Hazy redbrown color, short head, tiny particles floating around. Aroma of caramel malt, alcohol, some dried fruit, some bread and cookie. Very malty taste, bit fruity, slightly alcoholic, some anis and pepper maybe. Quite complex. Decent barley wine like beer.

Bottle at London Drinker. Pale Golden . Alcoholic, malty beer with some fruit, acidity and some aniseed. I didn’t really like it.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2006
33 cL bottle, tulip glass. Moderate, creamy white head rests upon a hazy amber-brown hued beer. Sweet and spicy aroma, with a rich sugar and dark bread malt aroma. Strong citrus and floral spiciness, for a Belgian-style at any rate. Dusty basement yeast profile along with pepper, plums and a hint of anise. Very sweet up front with a soft acidity blends into a still heavily sweet yet moderately bitter finish. The yeast has a way of keeping the beer from being too sharp in most respects, but the alcohol does come out in the finish a little. Medium-full bodied, oily texture, lively carbonation. The carbonation gets a bit hidden behind the thick, slickness of the beer though. Tasty, but overly sweet without any real balancing qualities. I get a lot of the dark fruits mentioned by other raters, but it has much more of a breadish pure-malt profile to me.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle (London Drinker 06): Hazy gold with a white head. Sweet mild malts, some spice but quite clean in flavour. Nice.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. Sweetish and sticky mouthfeel, with a touch of warming allcohol in the finish. Some nice spicyness and zingy citrus in the finish. If was a little less sweet, with less noticable alcohol i probably would have enjoyed this better.

skortila (5334) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2005
Aroma is malty sweet. Chocolate, caramel and prunes. Hazy, brown coloured with a lasting, off-white, medium head. Taste is sweet, malty (caramel/chocolate), fruity. Good body and balance. pleasant mouthfeel. Alocohol is certainly well hidden. Quite a good brew. Underrated.
