Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 14, 2005
An unclear red-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy with cinnamon and licorice-root standing out. The flavor is sour with notes of oranges. Yet another sour Dutch beer.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2005
(on bottle)Sweetish, lightly smoked nose here. Sour and mlty flavours, and the beer finishes quit dry. Nice at first, but the acidic feel takes over and becomes too much; coulden´t finish a whole bottle.

guzzler67 (1491) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Muddy, reddish brown appearance with a large, long lasting head of tiny bubbles. Loads of flockulation. Aroma of toffee, caramel and butterscotch. Sweet malt taste along with dark fruits and a bit of earthiness. Sticky, cloying finish.

argo0 (11351) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2004
(30cl bottle) Enormous beige head atop a hazy orange-dark brown body, the bottom of the pour was rather sludgy and added considerable murkiness. Aroma is sweet, molasses, caramel, chocolate, raisin/plum, light metallic. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some coffee, light peat, soy sauce. Watery medium-full body. The flavor got worse as the beer warmed -- metallic showed up and soy sauce got stronger.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2004
Choc/cara aroma. Brown with light beighe head. Sweet sticky. Not balanced, quite cloying. Bit of choc in flavour. "Blergh"

Tap@Lowlander, Covent Garden, London. Very sticky sweetness, with a lactic acidic quality. Caramel and soy sauce, way to sweet and sticky. Lots of alcohol noticed aswell.

JorisPPattyn (7818) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2004
Very carbonated, bubbles as in aged beer, foxy-amber beer with red highlights, slightly hazy only (!); disparate beige head. Wheat, sourmash, chocolate, laurel, and the brimstone smell you get when trying an empty lighter. A bit metallic taste, ever so slightly sourish, quite wheaty again, maybe again a bit lactic. Dark malts in evidence. Quite well bodied, nearly chewy, sourness keeps it refreshing nevertheless. Quite original tasting bokbier. If it’s infected, it’s in a very nice way. Like it.
