TBone (14173) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2008
Can (BB 06/2009)
Amber-reddish clear color, not much head. Aroma has malts, metal, caramel, cardboard and barnyard (just after pouring). Sweetish, almost syrapy strong lager - apple-like fruityness mixed with crystal sugar. A bit grainy. Finish has harsh maltyness and caramel. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Sweet, bareable strong lager. As a Belgian beer, nothing to speak about, but in its style, ok.

yespr (35031) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
50 cL can. Pours clear orange to amber with a collapsing light brown head. Light spiced to herbal aroma, mild malt note and light alcohol note in addition. Flavour is light spiced towards perfumed and sweet. Light fruity too. Ends light alcohol warming spiced.

Skinnyviking (7767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Can. High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear light red body. Light berries aroma. Relatively carbonated with a fair amount of hops bitterness and some dusty notes. Berries are present but the overall impression is bitterness. Short aftertaste.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Sampled in Nancy, France: poured a beauituful red with large tan head into a thistle. Aroma was malty and bready. Flavor was fruity with malty overtones, and a soft breadiness. Carmel and slight roast mixed in. medium bodied. On tap this wasn’t a bad beer, and it didn’t seem very lager like at all?

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 Lovely red colour with a respectable head. Caramel malt aroma with some alcohol. Sweet flavour, also with caramel and alcohol, nothing else going on really. When I drink beer with this high an abv I expect some flavour but overall this is simply two-dimensional and bland.
