DutchDrebus (3783) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Hazy orange, no head. Smells quite hoppy and fruity. Tastes sweet, watery and a bit iron like. For me way too much carbo. Makes it hard to drink.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Tawny liquid beneath a small, off-white head. Quickly recedes and leaves just a tiny bit of lacing - in patches. A funky malt aroma, earthy. Dry. Sour. That’s about it. Nothing spectacular about this offering.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2011
Poured into it’s original glass and it looks magical. Nice clear amber colour with a tanned head on top. I think the mystical part of this series has something like the Urthel series. Aroma has fruity yeastiness, ripe fruits like plums and strawberries and a small hint of cinnamon. Flavour is sweet with a full bitter finish. Really interesting find, looking forward to try more of this serie.
