lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a hazy marmalade orange with creamy head. Sweet yeasty aroma with hint of banana and coconut. Good mouthfeel, with sweet orange flavour and pepper spices and a medium/hard bitter finish. Only negatives would be a little too sweet and obvious alcohol.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden colour with a small head. Smell is of spices and oranges, have smellt this somewhere before but can’t place it, nonetheless very nice. Taste is a bit too much alcohol present, but also again the very nice herbs and oranges.

Quevillon (2811) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2008
Bouteille de 330ml, bu à Brouhaha le 5/11/08. Blonde pale un peu brumeuse, petit collet. Arome de blé bien malté, joli bouque d’épice et d’agrumeé Goût un peu pétillant d’agrume, sensation sûrette presuqe lambic et une finission sec et amère. Je m’attandais à quelque chose plus comme une blance, maic c’est bien!

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottled. Poured translucent lighter orange with a wispy cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and corny notes with overtones of black pepper and vanilla.. syrupy overall and somewhat artificial. The flavor had pale malts, honey, and vanilla at the core with strong, peppery, yeasty accents around.. alcohol amplified the edges but never got in the way.. finished warm and memorable. Medium-plus bodied, spicy, and aggressive all the way through the palate.. carbonation was higher, which gave a bit too much kick at certain points (but made the rest feel very good).. solid brew overall.

KyotoLefty (8859) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 26, 2009
Cloudy golden color with a tall white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma, wheat-like with spices, citrus, a bit of banana. Sweet, spicy flavor of rich golden malt and honey. Rich and flavorful, though rather simple and un-challenging. Good balance, though.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 6, 2009
Honey sweetness in the nose with bubblegum, clove and hints of banana. A hoppy bitterness in the flavour accompanied by crisp malt, with a spicy warmth. Finishes bitter, leaving you warm from the alcohol and spice. Lovely.

Mjollnir (394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2009
330mL bottle. Pours a cloudy gold - that slowly clarifies - with large particles of suspended sediment and a persistent, fine white head. Strong floral aroma, slightly malty with some earthiness. Spicy and orange peel flavours, medium sweetness, mild bitterness and very slightly tart. Some alcohol on the palate, medium bodied, reasonably smooth with initially lively carbonation and a spicy, dry finish.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle… Murky golden ale with thousands of dark particles and a small, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is fruity and doughy; offering sugar cookie, subtle spice, banana and pink bubblegum. Full-bodied and quite creamy with tickling carbonation. Well-balanced flavors of sweet bread, fruitcake and minerally, peppery bitterness. Warming, soothing finish. Bottle courtesy of fata2683!

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 25, 2010
nonostante il pregiudizio con cui mi ci sono approcciato, non mi dispiace poi tanto; è un po’ grezza nel sentore alcolico (e meno male che "remains surprisingly light and delicate") e abbastanza generica, ma chi si aspettava un prodotto unico?
