Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2008
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Golden color with a pretty nice, dying head. Smells wonderful of orange and clove. Flavor is dominated by a nice malty sweetness, very balanced, with taste of orange, citrus, banana and caramel. This one is very underrated. I will definitely buy this again, both due to the good taste and the low price.

drpimento (2100) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pretty good beer! Poured with a nice foamy, frothy, white head and a little lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is earthy, yeasty, minerals, not cloying at all. Flavor’s where it’s really good. Spicy, malty, a bit tart sharp, and understated. Enticing without being overdone. Great body and carbonation. Clean and fresh. Very good finish. Slight hint of alcohol. Definitely a session beer.

GTAEgeek (1062) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a significant, foamy beige head. The aroma is figs, caramel, and apples. The flavor is malty sweet and a little spicy. The palate is heavy, sticky and a little acidic and astringent. Overall, a powerful and complex beer. Very tasty.

This was a surprisingly delicious BDG. The hops seemed really fresh, just a pleasant beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2007
Rich, but clear, golden body is crowned by a creamy white head that slowly descends into a skim of whipped cream.

Honeysuckle and a solid pilsener malt base make up much of the olfactory experience. Hefeweizen like elements of clove and banana appear in moderation. Further spicing continues along the way of cracked black pepper. Dried hay and fresh linen round out the soft but pleasant aroma.

The flavour is sweet with breads, bananas and marshmallow cream, picking up some spicy acidity towards the finish. Lingering are notes of water crackers and pepper.

Not much more than medium bodied, but with a supple texture, sliding from slick to creamy. The carbonation could stand to be a little firmer, but works.

Fresh and clean overall. Seeming underpowered and reserved keeps it from scoring higher. 75cl bottle, Duvel tulip, bbe 28-12-08.
