HoppedLuc (8) - - SEP 8, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Bottle: Big frotty white head, that disappears slow, on top of a golden beer. Smell is a sweet and spicy mix of malts fruit and yeast. Taste is a soft and smooth mix of malts, caramel, hops, citrus, yeast, spices, herbs and a slight hint of alcohol. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.

R2k2 (292) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Cloudy, honey-colored beer with a clear white layer of foam on top. A sweet aroma with the hints of hop. It also tastes quite sweet, but you can also taste the alcohol. It leaves a dry palate, and the aftertaste is sweet and stays around. Troebel, honingkleurig bier met een spierwitte schuimkraag. Zoetig aroma, met de tinten van hop. De smaak is eveneens vrij zoetig, maar de alcohol is wel volop aanwezig. Iets droge afdronk, en de nasmaak is zoetig en blijft even hangen.

Chudwick (1782) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2014
33cl in wrong glass shared with my dad - nose is fruity ethers. Does not hide the ABV well. Malty backbone but more of a tripel than an abt in my book bu what do I know. Borderline basement aromas. Sweetish but fairly balanced.

prawlie (1054) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
33 cL bottle into a Westmalle glass. Amber, gassy, with foamy white head. Zesty, perfumed hops aroma. Spiced, crisp, tasty, with a light yeastiness to it. Quite a tasty beer, though to be fair it does like a little bit of flair.
