A.K.A. Singing Blond. Pours a fogged in orange gold with a thin creme head. Mild sour nose. Fruit is also there. At first when I poured it I wanted to say it was apricots. But alas we have moved on to minor funk. Flavor is superb. Smooth. Mature fruit tones and sweetness. A slightly firm acidity barely appears. Minor funky. It’s all mixed and mashed together beautifully though and seems to go funky on my mouth one time and then fruity the next. Just clings to the next bit of character and you get a real smooth ride of flavor. Feel has a carbonation that bites too much at the tongue, but it isn’t enough to interfere with the flavor. Damn. This is good. I mean, really good.

Gullig grumset med mange gærrester liggende i lag. Let hvidt blivende skum. Næsen er sødlig med lidt jern. Smagen starter frisk, men går hurtig over i kvalmende sødme. Ikke lige mig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle, when opened it foamed. It poured cloudy and golden with a thick head. Aroma was sweet and fruity with a hint of ripe fruits. Taste is of grass and citrus. A long finish. Overall average strong ale.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Appearance: opaque orange with golden edges; short, fizzy bright white head that quickly vanishes, leaving a thin collar and smattering of bubbles. Aroma: white wine, champagne, green apples, banana, grapefruit, pineapple, marmalade. Taste: sour and funky, with citrus, tart green apples, a hint of honey, hint of gym socks, lemon zest. Finish: very tart and dry, to the point where my throat constricts, only to be loosened by a slow-building and subtle (for a 10% beer) alcohol burn. Notes: Interesting. Almost like a the sour, tart Petrus Aged Pale Ale mixed with a Gulden Draak or something. A little more sour and tart than expected, but not terrible.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
330ml bottle from Good Beer. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a minimal effervescent white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, light sourness, and some spicy and yeasty notes. Taste is light honey, bread, sweet fruit (apples and grapes) with some sour notes that are part vinous and part vinegar. Sweet fruity malty finish with touches of honey and lemon. A bit too sweet.

Vaiz (3143) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, no head. Aroma of sour apple, some alcoholic malty sugars and slightly dusty. Flavor is sweetish, spicy, alcoholic, some cider and murky sourness. Quite off balance and too strong. Almost like a malt liquor. Not my kind of brew.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2013
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy light straw color with a thin white head of foam. Aroma is lightly floral, estery, and somewhat bretty. Taste has a light, fizzy tartness, somewhat like orval. There’s some sweetness to even things out. I really enjoyed this beer. I could see myself getting it again.
