DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
Aroma of citrus, vanilla, yeast and malt, opague amber, tiny small firm white head, light lace. Tastes of lemon, pear, malt and yeast. Full bodied, tongue tingle, probably from the 11%, sweet and bready. Very good.

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2005
Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a medium sized white head. Aroma of fruits with notes of spices and light acidic notes. Fruity flavour with notes of spices and alcohol. Powerfull, but too much alcohol.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle from Auchan, Calais. Golden beer, no head. Nice fruity hoppy nose. Some syrupy sweetness is evident. Extremely carbonated and actually quite hard to swallow due to this. Golden syrup flavours in mouth and then some hop on the end which is both herby and sweet tangerine. Just a tad too strong for me.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a big white head. Sweet fruity, yeasty aroma and taste, light alcoholic. Medium to full body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2005
This is a very fruity ale, cherries & sweet plums. Clear gold in body, it has an initially foamy white head. Vinuous in its fruity aroma, it carries this into the flavor, adding a light alcohol burn. There’s a bit of hot spicing involved as well, but the ale rests on its sweet malt, a bit of yeastiness, and light fruits. Both the spices and the alcohol surge forward in the finish, but the malt wins out. Definitely repeatable.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 750 bottle. Pours a beautiful, soft gold with a nice frothy head of white. Aroma is earthy and yeasty, with a bit of floral tones. Ample carbonation. Flavor is a rush of alcohol, followed by bits of orange, coriander, malt, and a mint-like rush. Interesting beer, but not spectacular. Palate is slick. I’d try another.

Tasted at Fynske Øldag 2005, Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Malty and fruity aroma with faint alcohol note. Malty and quite spicy flavor with a warming alcohol finish.
