Pinball (11542) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2011
from beerplanet.eu openend 4 months after best before date. cloudy brown, small smooth offwhite head. hizzing and slightly gushing beer. sour berryish and old hoppy oxidized aroma. aroma is more like an american attempt to do a belgian, than a real one. flavor is yellow fruits, caramel, smoked note, fruity note. mild and tasty, almost so mild that the alc. is in the way. but only almost.

ekstedt (6030) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle (33 cl) from Etre Gourmét. Shady amber to copper, medium off-white head. Nutty and fruity aroma with some odd soapy off-flavor, without which this would be very tasty. Now it is just ok. Good balance.

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, bright orange colour with a medium-sized slightly tanned foamy head. Yeasty spicy and slightly cara-malty aroma with a present fruit-character with notes of lemon and tangerines. Sweet flavour with a tinge of bitterness, medium to full bodied with an almost lively carbonation. Fruity and yeasty caramel-malty taste, also slightly sugary with herbal spices; sweet and minimally sour-fruity finish with a slightly medicinal touch that fades after a few sips. Still an aromatic brew. 25.XI.10

Pours out amber coloured. A medium sized good holding white head. It also sticks ok to the glass. A bit hard to smell. Malts, some spices and some yeast and fruits. A bit sour smell. Taste is a bit spicy, but it’s pleasant, not overdone. Some sour-sweet start to finish in a lightly bitterness. Enjoyable beer.
