argo0 (11896) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Pours with a huge orange-tan head, which when reduced leaves a cloudy copper body. Remarkable amount of sediment dislodged at the end of the bottle. Aroma is orange peel, coriander, wheat, and some herbal hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, orange peel, vinous, light vanilla, finishing with some grapefruit and herbal, and light alcohol. Full body with vinous characteristics.

Koelschtrinker (11888) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 17, 2013
Gewürziger Antrunk mit mild malzigen Noten. Die Würzigkeit steigt noch etwas, harmonisch, eher wenig süffig. Trocken nach Apfel, der Alkoholgehalt ist gut versteckt. 8/10/10/9/9/9

Bottle. Poured hazy orange with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spice and fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a slick texture. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium spice finish of moderated duration. Refreshing complex beer.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
Cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, cookie spices, grass and yeast - a bit too perfumed spice. Sweet and spiced flavour, with yeast and banana notes - a bit too cloying

Bottle. [thank you, madmitch76]
Pours hazy red-orange with a giant, frothy, off-white head. Really lovely aroma. There is brett, cinnamon, vanilla, holly, caramel, lots of nutmeg. Lovely. Medium to high carbonation, lovely dry bretty and spicy mouthfeel. Flavour is extremely well-balanced and still extremely spicy. Ginger, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, coriander. Fantastic dryness. Lightly warming. There is piney hops, caramel malts, light chocolate and a slight herbal ginger finish. I, as one who like spicy ales, this is really brilliant.
