Bontus (758) - Flanders, - MAR 4, 2012
Bought a bottle @ ACBF 2012. Pours amber with a thin creamy head. Slightly hoppy nose, aroma’s of caramel, honey & marzipan. Taste not too sweet, not too bitter. Palate OK, not great, overall decent. I do taste simcoe hops, but no amarillo’s.

Cristobal37 (812) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 Honey, tree sap, some light hoppiness. Dark bronze color with cream colored head. Bitter resiny hops, toast, honey. Some sweet fruit in there too like peach. Long dry bitter finish. Light nutty character lingering. Good beer but it?s way over hopped for a heller bock.

Rask0lnikov (785) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
330 ml bottle. Ruby brown colour. Thick, high, beige head. Head stays very well. Malty, slightly bitter, caramelly, even grassy aroma. Really nice slightly bitter hopiness and maltiness at the beginning. Makes the beer really drinkable. Hints of caramel and notes of honey in the middle. Bitter finish. Very inreresting, well balanced, drinkable brew.

rikstar (2302) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
0,33l L fles gedeeld met lion en Niko. Amber met een witte kuif. Geur vrij moutig met een citrus ondertoon. Smaak is tikkeltje zuur en wat droog. Mooie volle body. Biertje is wel wat aan de dure kant.
