caesar (5316) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2007
Slight hazy golden color, medium frothy white head, lots of carbonation. Sweet nose of sugar, hint of rum, bit grassy hop, hint of banana. Very sugary sweet taste, rum, sugar cane, some bitterness. Another uninteresting brew from Silly.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle@Home. Citrus and light grassy aroma. Pale yellow, white irregular head, fair lace. Sweet, citrus, floral, light bitter. Rhum? What rhum? Well, when warming up there’s indeed a little rhum to be noticed but not much. Because of my experience with a rhum beers I thought before opening that I was going to hate it. But not, it’s very well brewed actually.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2007
Golden blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a large, but fermly diminishing white head. Malty, light alcoholic (i supose the rum) strange aroma. Full rather bitter taste. Finish is bitter, light alcoholic. with some sweer fruity touches. Special beer.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2007
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Clear golden with some yeast deposits and a rich airy head. Sugary sweet nose. Overly sweet with woody rhum flavour. Medium bodied with loads of cane sugar. Pleasantly soft mouthfeel Probabaly possesses some interesting flavour, but as it is overloading my senses with sugar I can’t really tell.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2007
Bottled. A clear golden beer with a huge fluffy and lazing head. The aroma is quite sweet and malt, but also with a nice spicy note of coriander, and a fruity note. The flavor is very sweet - almost cloying with notes of malt, caramel, coriander, and peaches, leading to a sweet dry fruity finish. The body is quite thick.

Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2007
Blond beer, thick white head. Highly carbonated. Slightly sweet sub Straffe Hendrik, if that’s possible, no apparent hops, no pleasing flavours at all. Just slightly sickly. Only realised that rum was supposed to be in it after I’d poured the second half into the sink. Just watery bodyless rubbish. Slight yeast layer in the bottom of the bottle, but none of the flavour of a real secondary fermentation. Addition of yeast didn’t improve flavour. Hope the rock band is better than the beer.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2007
After having spent the day on jury duty in the Cook County, IL, criminal courts system, it seemed most appropriate to pop open a Silly beer. It pours a clear golden body with a huge rocky head that slowly collapses in at the sides leaving a thick webwork of lacing behind. The aroma is sweet and yeasty, plums and vanilla, a splash of alcohol, some citic tartness. The rum flavoring becomes apparent in the taste, adding a boozey kind of feeling to the beer. Highly carbonated, this is kind of refreshing and warming (even with the "low" ABV) at the same time.

goozen (3064) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle 0,3ltr: Golden coloured ale with dazzling taste of the added rum. The rum is just in balance.

beekey (3) - SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2007 does not count
A really nice surprise. Quite sweet as expected, but not bad at all. The rum is not as appearant as expected
