2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber coluured with a lot of sediments. Rich head. Yeasty aroma with a little bit of citrus. The flavour is fruity and quite sweet with too much alcohol. If I had a cellar I would surely use it for year or two.

The complex nose and the flowery flavours are very good when it comes to hiding all the ABV! Thats why I aprove of this otherwise too strong beer in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dried cherry aroma is the first thing I noticed. That same bitter fruit flavor is in the tasting, but it's not as predominent as in the nose. Mild sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge beige head! Hazy amber brown. Great retention. Aroma of dark fruit (raisins?) and sweet malt. Smooth medium mouthfeel. Initially quite sweet (candi sugar?) with dark fruit and alcohol in the finish. Slightly tart tingly aftertaste. Not as complex as others of style. Not bad though.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2007 Unclear amber colour with bubbly head. Strong yeast aroma of banana, the orange peel also very apparent. There is a pine tree aftertaste from the hops.
I like it, but nothing makes it stand out.

Deep copper/red color and fluffy head with yeasty and fruity aroma. Lots of spices, fruits and yeast in the taste, but they ain't interplaying ideally.

Bottled, at Bierodrome, London.
Mahogany colour with a lacy white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Strawberry aroma and tannins, mainly. The thin body and short palate hold back this beers score for me.
