MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, 6.5%. Hazy chestnut colour, tiny floaties and a small head. The flavour is subtle, malt and pepper. A little sour. Not very interesting.

Bottle at home. I can’t believe that the average rating of this beer is more than 3! It really made me wanna puke! The smell, the taste.. yuck! I walked around with this smell hangin’ around in my nose for about 2 days.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2006
Monotone orange-amber beer with a off white quick disappearing head. This beer has almost no aroma. The taste is malty and is slight duff. You can notice some barnyard accents and hints of nutmegg. In the finale there are hints of bitter nutpeel, peache-pit and an unplesant bitterness of hops.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Beautiful golden amber, creamy off-white head leaving a fine lacework. Typical spicy, yeasty ale-nose. Pronounced yeastiness in the flavours also, with dry caramel notes. Rather light body and some alcohol in the finish. Spiced with honey and vanilla. Excellent. 200705

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
Golden orange, slightly hazy color, elegant little carbonation. Aroma is mostly toffee. Flavor is interesting. Tastes a bit green. Dry flavor. A pleasure like most Belgian ales.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2005
An unclear dark orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel as well as hints of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, while the mouthfeel is flat.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
Orange colour with a small white head. Aroma has some sweetness and hints of alcohol. Flavor is malty with fruity notes. Palate is a bit thin.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2005
Bottle. Orange color and a small white head. Light sweet, hoppy, yeasty aroma and taste, light fruity. Medium body and a dry finish.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2004
Orang-amber, very slight haze; heavily carbonated to orange tinted, dense head, some little lace. Very much cookie malt, and orange zeste, fruity and faint peppery. Sweet and fruity taste, alcoholic - much more than 6.5% ABV would lead one to expect - even liqueurish. Again spicey, but I cannot identify vanilla. OTOH, honey is quite plausible, albeit more outfermented than usual with honeybeers. Medium bodied, alcoholburn, dry in the finish. Honey flavour finally emerges warming up, at the end of the bottle. Only the MF gives away that this is not really a big beer. It has some characteristics of one, all the same.

caesar (4954) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2004
Cloudy amber color, medium white head. Nicely balanced aroma of hops, some apple, bit yeast. Taste is yeasty, sour green apple and hoppy. Very hopbitter finish.
