dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2009
Flat nose like wet paper. Golden color is the best part of the beer. Aroma of grapefruitbitters in smell taste and very harsh bitter aftertaste. Not a pleasant beer at all.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy, pillowy white head and a ton of visible carbonation bubbling up in the glass. The head has excellent retention leaving soapy chunks of lacing throughout the glass. Slightly skunky earthy aroma with a decent malt backbone and hints of wheat, grass, straw, pilsner malt, saaz hops and light fruit. Soft, tight carbonation with a slightly creamy body that thins out considerably throughout toward the finish. Ripe banana flavor with wheat, crsip light fruit, grass, straw, pilsner malt, saaz hops, alcohol astringency, apple and pear notes. A little funky with decent drinkability.

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma of hay, bread and yeast. Fruity, soft beer, a bit short, perhaps, but there is a nice complex beer behind the blond seduciveness.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle, c&c, from Ledger’s. Pours golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aromas of light stone fruit and yeast. Medium body with frothy, biting carbonation. Flavor is lighter fruit, a touch of malt sweetness, with some astringency. There is some earthiness, but it is very well covered. So it’s more ale than biere de garde. Leaving that issue it’s a very tasty and drinkable beer. It’s far from sweet, and the bitter is not strong. It’s just pleasant.

probstblueribbon (3719) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
50 cl can from France (merci Papa!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. JL 24/09.

App.: Clear, deep golden with a large white meringue. Aroma: Kinda dirty, ashy, earthy, corn, coriander(?), grain/cereal, vague fruitiness, a bit like a European Strong Lager or malt liquor, not very pleasant. Palate: Medium body, almost flat. Flav.: Fruity – apples, peaches, pears; still a bit dirty, corn/grain/cereal; a bit cloying, no bitterness, still not very pleasant.

Non, merci!

Bottle from utobeer had at home. Aroma is Sweet honey like pale malt, wheaty and yeasty esters and a noteable amount of alcohol. Taste is similarly full of esters from the yeast, some peppery alc and sweet honey. Im bored with this beer.

Bottle. I am really amazed that I have not rated this beer earlier. A good and beloved old fried. Bottle. High creamy white head leaving nice lacings. Clear yellow body. Mild sweet fruity aroma. Flavor mild sweet smootj with low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste. Not world class but still quite good.
